Latin question

I am skipping way ahead in Wheelock for this bit of grammar, so I am probably getting it all wrong. If I wanted to say "watchdog", I would do something like this:

genitive of dog: canis -> canium (gen plural)
nominative of watcher: custos -> custodes (nom plural)
watch dog = canis custos (sing), canium custodes (plural)

Or I am out of my mind and you, dear reader, will kindly explain to me that I have misunderstood.

Man, I should just find a class somewhere and take it.
