After arriving in Canada from Croatia in late October 2015, Fasu quickly made his mark in the show ring, becoming the top winning Spanish Water Dog in Canadian history, and the first of the breed to earn an American and Canadian CH and then Cnd Grand CH. In 2017, he also thrilled us by taking the Award Of Merit in the Breed ring at the Westminster Dog Show.  From top European lines, he is a gentle, playful boy who has also shown his ability in performance events with a Rally Advanced title , and Novice Agility titles. Retired from the show ring, Fasu is very happy in a pet home as Brenda’s #1 cuddle buddy. Thank you Marika Fredrikson for this handsome and even tempered dog. Fasu is CKC, AKC and Croatian registered. Health clearances: Hips OFA Fair, PRAcd Carrier, eoPRA Clear, OFA Thyroid Normal, CHG Clear, Current CERF – Normal.

Jan 2007 – Aug 2018

The first Dual Champion (Agility & Conformation) SWD in North America, Chase earned titles in many disciplines in North America (Obedience, Rally, Started Herding, and CKC Agility, and CKC CH). He set the bar high for the number of titles for a single Spanish Water Dog. ‘Chase’ taught me more about working with dogs than all of my other dogs combined.  He arrived at 11 weeks of age in March 2007, and quickly demonstrated his desire to learn and work, and has passed his work ethic on to his offspring. Thank you Bethany Clark for this wonderful, wonderful boy.

ARBA CH Danby De Domus “Goli” (2000 – 2013)

(Turco De Domus X Tenca De Domus)

One of the first Spanish Water Dogs to be shown extensively in the US, “Goli” came to us at age 3 and inspired my passion for this breed.  He was the ultimate gentleman, and I thank Connie O’Hara for the privilege of allowing me to bring this dog home.  Goli and Chase are featured in an article in the February 2019 issue of The Herding Dog Digest.
