Kortun Kennels are proud breeders of Portuguese Water Dogs.  
Our home raised puppies are developed in a family environment.  We are located in Millbrook Ontario, Canada and ship puppies by air from Pearson International Airport.  Kortun Kennels will never sell our puppies in a cage at a pet store.  All of our Portuguese Water Dogs breeding dogs are CKC purebreds with high quality pedigrees.

The Portuguese Water Dog breed is a Non-Shedding, Hypo-Allergenic pet that is a medium sized dog.  A Portuguese Water Dog would do anything to have your love and attention.  They will run, walk, play or just lay with you.  The intelligence of a Portuguese Water Dog  is very high.  We have a few families whom have potty trained their puppies within two weeks of going home to ring a bell to be let outside.  Portuguese Water Dogs are now being used to become Canine Athletes in many events such as fly ball and agility.  We always say to our customers... what you are willing to put in, you will get back, and more. 

Kortun Kennels is a registered company.  This means for you, a new family member of Kortun Kennels, our guarantee is a legal document.  Unfortunately, many breeders are not registered companies and can close or not honor their guarantees without notice. We are here to continue the Portuguese Water Dog breed and support our extended families to enjoy their puppy through their pet's adult years. 

We get asked a lot regarding Labra-doodles, these are not recognized by the CKC as Purebreds!  A Labra-doodle is a mix of Labrador Retriever and a Standard Poodle.  Some look similar to a Portuguese Water Dog, but are usually a taller and heavier dog with a long muzzle.  Labradoodles cannot be guaranteed as Non-shedding or Hypo-Allergenic as they are a mixed breed.  Breeders that have successfully bred many generations of Labra-doodles can produce a less shedding dog, but this would take multiple generations of both parents being Labradoodles.     

The Poodle is an ancestor of the Portuguse Water Dog.    According to the American Kennel Club, the belief exists that the portuguese Water Dog traces as far back as 700 B.C. to the wild Central-Asian steppes, near the Chinese-Russian border.

Children and dogs are as necessary to the welfare of the country as Wall Street and the railroads.
