It is a funny and very intelligent dog, that with its disheveled appearance and charming temperament, makes most dog-friendly hearts go throb.
But it is not entirely a gentle and soft breed, who totally submit to everything and everyone, the Portuguese Waterdog can also be strong-willed and determined.
During work or play the Portuguese Waterdog do not always take a command for a matter of course, if the dog think that the situation is different. One will
need to lure it to think the right thing - you can not force it to change its mind.
