I found the love of my life at Linda Kennedy's Kamolot Kennels almost 8 years ago. Tessie, my Portuguese Water Dog, is the most loving, funny, loyal and friendly dog. With all the awful things we hear now about puppy mills, I drove from Massachusetts to Canada to check out Linda's kennels. The kennels were immaculate, the papa and mama dogs as well as the puppies were happy, healthy and beautifully socialized and well cared for. I can't say enough about what a careful breeder and dog lover Linda is and how well she cares for her dogs. Linda also posts some great advice about dogs and PWD's in particular all the time. I was so fortunate to have found Kamolot Kennels. Tessie is growing older, as am I, and she is my constant shadow, friend and mischief maker. She makes me laugh every day. If you are looking for a well bred, socialized and happy dog, you can't go wrong in welcoming one (or more) of Linda's little pups into your life. Kathie Zambernardi
A quick report on Tucker: quite simply he is the best dog i have ever had. Smart, eager to please, gets along with other dogs and on our company website has his own video "Pull Up - A Tucker Perry-Miller video". I am just about to head to the dog parkin a few minute as the weather is getting warm for the first time in a week. I bought this really great old place in Virginia on 20 acres and Tuck loves it, the only thing missing is a pond. Will start to spend time there next summer.Hope your still breeding PWD's, when time comes for anotherbut also hope that, that day is many many years away! Thanks once again for raising such great dogs!

Happy New Year Linda (casa O'KamolotKennels), We wanted to end 2015 by saying thank you to you and Dave for the wonderful job and dedication you have towards breeding such beautiful (PWD) dogs. Everywhere we go people always stop and ask us what type of dog Sigmund is and how physically beautiful he is. At the dog park people are amazed at his temperament and disposition which of course makes us proud. This is a compliment to you because of the love, hard work and dedication you have given this breed of dog for generations. We've attached a few pictures of Sigmund because we know how you love to see your babies doing great. Thank you again for this beautiful furbaby!! Sincerely, Laura & Chris Chase

Owner of Edna and Pearl : Our experience with Kamolot Kennels and Linda Kennedy could not have been better. After several meetings, she sent me photos of her recent litter. I immediately feel in love with my Edna. We couldn't wait to sent her a deposit to secure Edna as our own! Linda sent us videos and photos as she grew and called her by the name we selected when she spoke to her while she was growing with her litter mates. By the time Edna was old enough to be with us, we were all good friends! Edna, Linda and my family. We called Linda as soon as we got home and spoke to her frequently in the very early days. Linda was a wealth of information and made Edna's transition a smooth one. Edna is five years old now, and I can't imagine our family without her. Edna is the caregiver/nursemaid when any of us are sick, she is the clown when she thinks the house seems a bit too quiet. She is a great dog! Last year we also took in Black Pearl as Linda could not use Pearl in her breeding program,due to a minor health issue so my mom and I drove up to get Pearl stayed with Linda and Dave overnight and drove Pearl back home ! Pearl has fit into our family well ! the girls picture below

Christmas Eve 2014 was the day Greg flew to Toronto to bring Ella home to NS. She is by far the best mutual Christmas gift we ever shared. Ella enjoys waterfront living in Halifax and has a very active life. We did a lot of research before settling on a PWD, as we wanted the right match for our Springer Spaniel and our life style. Ella brings us such joy, her cuddles and her multi octave barks are unique and we are learning what she is saying and often it is something along the lines of food or play. We have two dogs now and sometimes talk about "our next dog", and we both agree that the PWD is the frontrunner; when that time comes we will get on a plane and meet Linda at the airport and a new realm of PWD joy will unfold".

Webster, The MacDougall Family, Hampton ON. We were fortunate to find Kamolot Kennels and Linda Kennedy after researching PWD's for the newest addition to our family. Webster has given us 10 years of joy, laughter and love. He is the social dog of our small village and other families bring their puppies to our house for socialization. Webster is playful, energetic and everything a great dog should be. He is the classic water dog - a constant swimmer and jet ski enthusiast. The Kennedy family were helpful and informative throughout the puppy process and have checked in many times over the years to see how Webster is. Kamolot Kennels raised a healthy, happy puppy who has been a wonderful part of our family. I can not recommend Kamolot Kennels enough! Thank-you Linda!
Good morning Linda, Your website updates look great, lots of work! I wanted to share some pictures of Charley and a testimonial if you would like to use. Enjoy! In February 2015 we welcomed Charley into our home and quickly into our hearts. He has taught us so much, including how to make everyday an adventure. As first time owners and not being too familiar with the Portuguese Water Dog breed, we were so fortunate to have Linda from Casa O Kamolot be our connection. From the first time we spoke to her she was friendly knowledgable and honest. We could not be more happy with our Charley, his personality is amazing. He loves to be active, playful, socializes well with other dogs and gives the best snuggles. If we had it to do over, we wouldn't change a single thing. Jennifer, Stephen & Charley
Pademay It's been a few years we knew our next puppy would be a Porty. We visited Kamolot Kennels where I fell in love with Sultan, one of Linda's male PWD. He stood tall and proud and had a demeanor I could not forget. We visited Linda on several occasions and she was always Welcoming, Honest, Informative, Trusting, Co-operative and very Accommodating. My 3 girls; 8, 10, & 12 at the time, pooled in all their allowance, gift money and worked hard at accumulating funds in a puppy jar. We visited Sultan's 1st litter and my girls were excited to exchange their puppy money jar for one of Linda's puppies. Linda accepted the many loonies and toonies and was very thoughtful in considering the allergies of one of my daughters. Pademay has now been with us for almost 2 months and we couldn't be happier! What a wonderful addition she is!! She's been the easiest puppy I ever had: sleeps at night, eager to please, walks right at my side, comes when called, sits to get her food, always looks up at us with kind, smart, eager eyes. My girls describe her as - Fun, Loving, Smart, Energetic, and most of all Huggable. Their favorite things to do together are: Hug her, Chase her across the yard, Sit with her on their laps and watch her reactions when she sees things for the first time.
Linda, Thank You for being a part of adding such joy to our family.
Larry and I first met Linda Kennedy by telephone - we were mourning the sudden death of our most-loved dog, "Jackson". After a long conversation covering our experience with dog breeds, our home environment and lifestyle (all of which are crucial to making a wise decision), we visited Linda at her home in June 2017 in order to pick a Portuguese Water Dog puppy. "Rufus", who was our pick, is from the "Ivy" and "Baxter" mating - it was a difficult choice given how lovely all of the puppies were. Rufus came to our home after much love and professional care from Linda -- he is not just beautiful but is extremely healthy and an excellent representation of this breed. Because of Linda's puppy care, his transition from her home to ours was very easy for him -- Linda assured herself that we would look after Rufus just as she would; she truly loves every dog. He is now about 7 months old and brings joy to us every day. I whole-heartedly recommend Linda not just as a trustworthy and reputable breeder, but as a truly fine person.
