Auctions & Boutiques
Two of the highlights of every National Specialty are the Live and Silent Auctions. The Specialty Committees never miss in bringing a wide range of really fabulous items, ranging from vintage PWD items to vacation getaways. The bidding can get quite competitive and exciting, making these events something you won’t want to miss! The Auctions are also a vital part of helping fund the many extras that make a National memorable.
Boutiques are a unique part of each Specialty where our very own members show off their handmade wares and where Regional Clubs offer their special PWD items for sale. Only PWDCA members or Regional Clubs selling Portuguese Water Dog related art, crafts, literature, and training equipment are sold at the Boutiques. Items are original designs and/or hand-crafted items. Come take a look and support our members and regional clubs.
