TagAlong Champions and Peformance Companions
TagAlong's first litter from the mating of our foundation Siena, CH Aviator's Peanut Gallery CD RA OA NAJ CGC CWD GROM bred by Lorna Coloccia and Gale Kostas with Drifter, GCH AM/CAN/INT'L CH Driftwood's Call Me SexSea AOM CGC owned and loved by Cam and Ron Salvary of Seaworthy PWD produced seven happy and healthy pupppies that will be seven in 2015. TagAlong PWD is very proud of our first Champions from Siena and Drifter: Ryder, GCH CH TagAlong's Salute to the Midnight Ryder CGC, owned and loved by Dorothy Hankinson and Savoy, CH TagAlong's High Tea for Two CD RE AX AXJ NF CGC WWD GROM.
Siena the foundation of TagAlong has been a life changing companion dog that has taught me many new things and introduced me to many new activites including conformation, PWDCA water work, agility, obedience and rally. I was very proud of her in 2012 when we earned two Courier Water Dog legs for her title. You can see Siena perform her Courier exercises in the following video. For those that love training and working in dog sports, the versatile PWD is a breed that can perform and be succcessful in many activities.
The Courier exercises demonstrated by Siena in this video include:
1- Boat to boat message pouch exchange
2- Retrieve float line boat to shore
3- Double directed dummy retrieve
4- Pulling net from opposite boat
5 - Buoy ball drop
Savoy has excellent working drive and finished her CH and earned both her Apprentice Water Dog and Working Water Dog titles by the age of 2.5 years. Presently she is training and competes in agility, obedience and rally, and hopes to try tracking. Savoy is fearless in the sea and has always had a natural affinity for the ocean. Here she is retreiving in the rough surf. Many water dogs I see today are losing their natural drive and ability to confidently approach the rough surf of the ocean.
In 2012 both Savoy and Ryder also produced their first litters. Ryder as an exceptional head and muzzle; as well as, a wonderful temperament. Savoy with her graceful movement and excellent hips is an eager working water dog who is happy in perofrmance events or just hanging out with her favorite people. We are happy to announce Savoy's first GCH and CH produced is Stella, GCHS CH TagAlong's Stella Maris' Compass Rose AOM co-owned with Victoria Morro and William Varr who have provided Stella a wonderful home and opportunities to excel in the show ring. Stella also earned an Award of Merit at the 2014 PWDCA National Specialty.
TagAlong's litter from Siena and Deuce in 2010, AM/CAN/INT'L CH Driftwood's Bacchus Dos RN CGC TDI, owned by Janet Lankester produced four boys and four girls. Our stars from this litter Sabato, CH TagAlong's Roman Holiday CD BN RE NA NAJ CGC AWD and Charlie, CH TagAlong's Holiday Gift from Logan CGC AWD, owned by Cindy Miner are training and performing in obedience, agility, and water work the true heritage and passion of the real Portuguese Water Dog who has a natural affinity for the sea.
