After deciding we were hooked on the breed, we decided to add a male Spanish to the family to show alongside our girls. Kate started to speaking to a number of breeders in Spain and it wasn’t long before she made contact with Raul Pontes Rodriguez. She spoke with Raul about what we were looking for in a male. Around 6 months later, Raul then informed us of a litter from which he might have a male available. After seeing pictures and videos of this handsome boy, the decision was made that when he had reached 4 months old, Otto would make his way from Spain over to Chanderhill.

Otto has done nothing but wow us ever since, being the UK’s Top SWD Puppy and winning our kennel’s first UK Challenge Certificate in his first year with us. Then during the course of 2018, Otto became a Champion of two countries, won his second UK Challenge Certificate and was also Best in Show at a SWD Specialty Show on one of our trips to compete in the breed’s homeland of Spain.

Otto is also now a father. He is the sire of two of the litters of pups born at Chanderhill in 2018. One of his sons, Finn (Chanderhill Alfredo), won Best Puppy in Breed on his UK Championship debut at LKA in December 2018 and was then Best Male Puppy at Crufts in March 2019. Finn has since gone on to make breed history, becoming the first male Spanish Water Dog to qualify for the Kennel Club’s Junior Warrant Award.

Another son, Cocoa (Chanderhill Cash The Cheque At Donjenki), was Best Male Puppy and then also overall Best of Opposite Sex (at the age of just 9 months!) on his Championship Show debut at the West of England Ladies’ Kennel Society Championship Show in April 2019 and went on to be Best Puppy in Show at the Spanish Water Dog Club UK Championship Show in June 2019.
