My apologies: I somehow deleted my entire webpage! It was time for an updated site, so perhaps it was a fortuitous error. This site is under (re-)construction. Also, feel free to check the "wayback machine" to find archived pages, including health information and color genetics of Spanish Water Dogs.


Welcome to my website! 

Ariosa is a hobby kennel of Spanish Water Dogs and Löwchen, two breeds which are rare to the United States. I breed infrequently, perhaps only once every year or so. I enjoy watching my pups grow up a bit before making my next breeding decisions. In this house, it's definitely quality over quantity.

Spanish Water Dog puppies should be born New Year's Eve in Portland, Connecticut! See the Spanish Waer Dog link for information.

My own dogs enjoy dabbling as much as I do, trying our hand (and paws) at a variety of events: conformation, herding, agility, water work, and soon Barn Hunt. 

We are located in picturesque central Connecticut near Wesleyan University.
