James Stephen (Steve’s) involvement in the dog world began in 1988 when, together with his wife, they purchased their first Australian Cattle Dog. Success in the ring quickly followed. Some 100+ Champions and many Best in Shows later, he is proud to say that the name TAGETARL is acknowledged worldwide for top quality ACDs. Steve is also known as a breeder of BIS winning Stumpy Tails, Silky Terriers and Australian Terriers, both at all-breeds and specialty level. Tagetarl bred the first Supreme Ch Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog and also the first Red ACD to become a Supreme Ch. Steve’s philosophy is to breed the complete dog. One that excels in conformation, breed type, soundness of temperament and correct breed movement.
Steve has long been involved with dog administration, having served in executive positions on all-breeds and obedience clubs and a past councillor on the North Australian Canine Association (Dogs NT). Steve saw these responsibilities as a positive way to contribute his time and expertise to assist fellow dog people. Steve has assisted as a breed mentor to many neophyte breeders both here and overseas.
Steve is a tradesman and has been in senior management for over 25 years. Steve approaches all judging appointments as not only a responsibility but also, and most importantly as an enjoyable pursuit.
To date Steve has judges in most states within Australia. He sees judging as a fantastic opportunity to meet new people with similar interests and commitments.
