The Lagotto Romagnolo has a mild temperament, a balanced character and is linked to its master. Loyal and loving, he is an ideal pet dog for the family and suitable for children. The picture of the Lagotto and the Child on the cover is of our “Valle dei Medici Heros” in the Yago house with our nephew Ettore and kindly granted by his family.
The Lagotto since he was a puppy loves to play. For training he uses this temperament. He can carry out the most demanding obedience commands without any effort.
At its origin the Lagotto Romagnolo was an excellent dog to bring back. This characteristic of his is still very much alive today, we can spend hours throwing an object at him and having him brought back to us.
Its intelligence, mild temperament and lack of aggressiveness make the Lagotto a very appreciated dog by families.
The Lagotto Romagnolo is not a demanding dog. It knows how to stay in its place until it is decided that its time has come, provided that it arrives anyway.
The Lagotto Romagnolo is defined as a working dog. In reality, it is a dog that knows how to please its owner, which is why we find it in manifestations of agility, obedience. Whatever the job for Lagotto Romagnolo is, it’s a game.
Particularly suitable for children and recently recommended for pet-terapy.
With its small size it is suitable for living at home, it is not a barking dog. Its diffusion in Italy but also abroad, is having an exponential growth, thanks to its increasingly appreciated qualities as a companion dog.
The Lagotto Romagnolo does not change its coat. Its thick and curly hair is not lost at home. Its coat has a constant growth that requires a couple of grooming per year. Also for this characteristic it is a dog increasingly sought after by those who live in flats.
Personally, I happened to see a dreadlocks style pond. Although it attracts the attention of all passers-by, let’s say it’s not exactly the best.
The Lagotto Romagnolo does not like to be scolded at all. He gets touchy, and when it happens that we have to scold him, we must never exaggerate. He understands at first and if we insist, it offends his fine intelligence.
With these qualities, the abrupt and snappy bosses are unable to have any relationship with Lagotto Romagnolo. Often with no dog, but with the Lagotto they are really incompatible.
The Lagotto Romagnolo is endowed with enormous patience and intelligence. Qualities of which it is fully aware and for this reason it knows how to wait for the moment of play or pampering.
It can stare at you tirelessly for hours with languid eyes, and when called for two caresses or to play or for a walk, in a few moments it becomes very active, wags its tail and shows all its happiness.
Ideal for children because they can become inseparable playmates.
Sharp enough to understand from your outfit what is about to happen…get out, and go!!!
