Junior Affiliate Program

The Junior Member Program's goal is to promote the participation of juniors with Portuguese Water Dogs in AKC and PWDCA events as well as to support participation in the PWDCA and its regional clubs. This program hopes to establish mentoring relationships with juniors and interested PWDCA members with the goal of sharing knowledge about the breed and encouraging activity in club events. As well, this program hopes to promote camaraderie among our junior members.

  • Highlighting our juniors' knowledge and achievements with articles in the award-winning club magazine, The Courier
  • Expanding methods of communication between our juniors and PWDCA members
  • Sponsoring juniors' activities at PWDCA events such as the National Specialty
  • Regularly updating our website with helpful juniors' links including links to the Deyanne Miller Scholarship page

The Junior Member Program will remain supportive and encourage our juniors, whenever possible, to maintain enthusiastic interest in the sport of dogs and with Portuguese Water Dogs in particular, as they are the future of our breed.
