Lagotto Ramagnolo Puppies
Description: The Lagotto Romagnolo (pronounced lag-oh-toe roman-yolo) is a small to medium sized dog with thick curly fur and a bright, happy demeanor. They come in colors of brown, white, off white, and orange. Like a poodle, their fur is hypoallergenic, and they hardly shed a hair. Their drop ears are triangular but round on the ends, and their faces are full of curly fur. Loyal and obedient, the Water Dog of Romagnolo was previously used as a hunting dog, and currently used as a truffle-searching dog. Truffles are a form of edible fungi in Italy. This is the only breed used for this purpose, but he does a good job at it! Romagna Water Dogs are bred for searching things out, and their keen senses prove their worthiness in the field. They are agile, affectionate and loving. The Lagotto Romagnolo is trained easily, enjoys the company of his master and will gladly accompany you on a long walk around the block. Adaptable and intelligent, the Lagotto Romagnolo is a friend to all.

Care and Training:
The Lagotto Romagnolo should not be brushed in the show ring. Their fur should
retain its curl, but not be too long to overshadow the body line. Lagotto Romagnolos'
coat should be trimmed once a year, and should be separated without tearing,
as it will mat easily. Some say the coat should be brushed regularly, while
others disagree and believe it should grow as it is as a working dog. The coat
is preferably 1.5 inches long all around. Lagotto Romagnolos are eager to learn
and are easy to train. They should be trained with positive reinforcement, and
they shouldn't be too difficult to work with. They also need regular daily exercise,
as they can become obese. They would greatly benefit from long daily walks and
play sessions with their owners, and would greatly enjoy them as well.
Health Issues: Although a healthy breed, some health concerns include cerebral anomaly and hip dysplasia.
Life Span: 11 - 16 + years.
