Max is our first PWD and our first show dog! We have been truly blessed! He is out of Pouch Cove heritage and was the pick of his litter. Max is the #2 ranked PWD of all-time in the AKC Grand Champion Point System and is  the second PWD to achieve Platinum Grand Champion. He has achieved Top-Ten status in Breed and All-Breed points in 2013 and 2014(#3 in both for 2014), 2015, 2016 and is on target to achieve this recognition for the 2017 calendar year. He was the Top Stud Dog and People’s Choice Winner for Top Twenty at the 2017 PWDCA National Specialty.

Over 2 years of serious campaigning Max has become a Group winning PWD. He has over 50 Group placements, 150 Best of Breeds and has won multiple Supported Entries. During his limited time off he has achieved his Rally Novice title, finishing with a High in Trial and qualified as a Pet Partners Therapy Dog(Complex situations). Physically, Max has classic PWD type with a massive head, prominent stop, powerful shoulders and front end and well developed hind quarters. He loves to show and is tireless in the ring but calm and well-mannered at Bill’s medical practice where he is a patient favorite(patients often schedule their appointments around Max’s show calender!!}. He is a tight black curly measuring 21.5 inches at the withers and weighs 60 lbs.

Tagalongs Stella Maris’ Compass Rose


Stella is our foundation female. She is 5 ½ years old and has been the queen of the house since her arrival from her breeder Benita Bottom –Svitchan. She is a medium build black curly with one white sock, a milk chin and slight white blaze. She is an escape artist and has found her way out of most X-pens and a few crates. She is also an expert counter surfer, so don’t leave anything edible within her reach! Stella started her conformation career at 6 months and finished her championship before she was 18 months old. She finished her Grand Championship before she was 2 and she is currently at the Silver level. She has won multiple Best of Breeds and has been a top 10 Best of Opposite for multiple years. In 2014 she won an Award Of Merit at the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America National Specialty as one of the top eight females. She had her first litter of 8 puppies (2 boys and 6 girls) on 10/29/15 and is an excellent mom! Stella was honored at being a top brood bitch (Fourth) at the 2017 PWDCA National Specialty.
