Portuguese Water Dogs Are Our Passion
Big Bay Reg'd Kennel Toronto, Ontario


My husband and I fell in love with this special breed in 1998 at which time we acquired our first PWD Hogan - CnAm Champion Ondulado’s Hogan (WWD, CDX, AGN, SROM)  Over the years Hogan became our dedicated family companion, a top obedience and water work dog and top show dog.

With the support and guidance of our breeder and Hogan’s co-owner – Cathie Sockett of Ondulado PWD’s - we became involved in breeding as we launched Hogan’s stud dog career.  Before long we made the commitment to acquire our first breeding female Kyrie - Cn/Am Champion Valkyrie Summer Solstice (CDX, AWD, AGN).

People often ask me why I breed PWD’s - the answers is simple -  breeding Portuguese Water Dogs gives me the opportunity to provide our puppy families with the same joy that we have experienced with our dogs!   

For more details on our dogs including Hogan and Kyrie visit the “Our Boys” and “Our Girls” sections of our site.

At BigBay we produce loving family pets and performance or show ring prospects by focusing on temperament, health, trainability and true PWD character-fun loving, people oriented dogs who love to retrieve and play in the water! 

Our breeding program is based on PWD’s from long established, champion breeding lines known for sound temperament, health, trainability and proven working ability in water work, obedience and agility. 

We carefully select breeding pairs for each litter in support of our commitment to produce PWD’s that have responsive, easy to train temperaments, and suit both family pet and performance homes.  We also focus on structure and health – ensuring that we prevent the inheritance of genetic health issues and produce physically sound, beautiful PWD’s that are a credit to the breed and our breeding program.

Our pups are home raised and well socialized through ongoing interaction with a range of people, dogs and experiences. We temperament test our pups to ensure the best match of the pup to your family and provide a written purchase/sale agreement that includes a health guarantee and comprehensive breeder support from the time the new pup goes home and thereafter.

Our pups receive a thorough check by our veterinarian, are registered with the Canadian Kennel Club, have had a micro chip implanted and have received their first set of vaccinations before going to their new homes.
