Introduction

The Spanish Water Dog is a medium to large sized breed that can reach up to 90 pounds fully grown (male). As can be assumed from their name, this breed was designed specifically to help fisherman as a water retriever. On top of this, the Spanish Water Dog was used on farms to help with herding livestock and providing protection to their owners. Not much more than these basic details is known about the dogs and even their specific origin is just a guess at best. It is believed that the breed descended from an African breed and may be similar to the European Portuguese Water Dog. The most unique trademark of this interesting breed is definitely their fur which is extremely curly and long, often falling down over their eyes. This fur is important for helping the Spanish Water Dog adapt to the ever-changing climates of the Iberian Peninsula (where they are originally from) as it tends to be a mix of both humid and dry at times. Personality wise, the breed is extremely hard working and enjoys learning through positive reinforcement. This makes the Spanish Water Dog an excellent breed for those who want a reliable working dog on top of an excellent companion.

Spanish Water Dog Name Considerations

Although choosing a name for your Spanish Water Dog may seem a bit challenging, it can actually be really simple if you have a theme idea in mind. Some people may choose a moniker that reflects the Spanish heritage of the breed, while others may go down the "water" themed path. While these options are rather common and solid choices (also being the themes that we tend to focus on in this list) there are many other amazing name choices that could be used for the unique Spanish Water Dog. For example, due to the breed's interesting, curly coat, a few name examples could be something like "Lopi", "Arroyo", and "Merino".

Thanks to the hard working behavior of the Spanish Water Dog and their medium to large size, another great set of name examples include "Caspian", "Cascade", and "Triton". These are water themed titles that are impressive and represent the immense and lovely personality of this breed. Honestly, no matter what you decide to name a Spanish Water Dog, their is no doubt that their nature and appearance will boost the name, making it all the more special!
