“In recognition of the versatility, achievement and drive of Portuguese Water Dogs in partnership with their humans”

The STAR Award

As many of you know, we announce the Lloyd D’Augusta Star Award recipients annually at the PWDCNC’s Annual Meeting, scheduled on Sunday, February 28, 2021. This distinguished performance award is presented as recognition of the versatility and working drive of Portuguese Water Dogs.

The award was named in honor of our longtime club member, Lloyd D’Augusta and his beloved companion, Star.

This year has been full of unprecedented challenges for all of us. The constant is our love and desire to work in partnership with these amazing dogs. Many of you have found ways to continue this and achieve new goals. We want to make sure these efforts are recognized.

There are two awards and trophies—one recognizing Lifetime achievement, and the other recognizing Annual achievement. The PWDCNC also commissioned a beautiful perpetual trophy that includes each of the winner’s names. Careful attention has been taken to ensure all eligible titles are addressed on the application.
