The breed club commissions health surveys of Spanish Water Dogs to assist in identifying any new, previously unreported conditions, along with any existing known conditions in order to establish the scale and effect on the breed as a whole. 

The survey comprises a number of questions that current owners of Spanish Water Dogs are asked to respond to, with the results being based on those responses received within the allocated time frame. 


The survey benefits breeders by informing them of issues within the breed, allowing them to test for conditions and try and breed them out to maintain the health of the SWD's.  It also informs both the Spanish Water Dog Club and the Kennel Club
