Our members are spread throughout Western Canada, though concentrated in Alberta. The Alberta Portuguese Water Dog Club (APWDC) welcomes owners, breeders and enthusiasts to join together in sharing information and resources surrounding Portuguese Water Dogs.

We hold an assortment of events throughout the year year catering to PWD owners.  These events range from social get-togethers to training workshops and competition events for our dogs.  Our primary club events focus on Water Work, which is specifically designed for the PWD.

Non-members are welcome and encouraged to attend and learn more about the very versatile Portuguese Water Dog.
