For almost 4 years many people have diligently worked to make changes to our Breed Standard. (Click here for timeline) I thank everyone for his or her effort to bring us to a ballot. We now have two options, either vote YES or NO.
After the ballots are counted I would love to have the same passion and energy exhibited over past few days focused on these and other issues within our club committees.
We are Lagotto Family, and all share a desire to protect and advance the health and welfare of our Fur Babies.
Please bring your ideas and needs to me and let’s find a place at the table for everyone. Together we can better understand and improve our breed!

The Lagotto Romagnolo is a small to medium sized dog with thick curly hair and a bright, happy demeanor. The breed originates from Italy and was first used to hunt waterfowl. Since the 19th century it has been specifically bred to hunt the underground tuber known as the truffle.
As a working breed, the Lagotto needs frequent mental stimulation and physical exercise to be happy and content. If properly socialized they get along well with dogs, children and other small pets. The breed comes in various shades of brown, with or without white, orange, with or without white, off-white, white with brown or orange patches, and brown roan. Tan markings are allowed.
