character Lagotto Romagnolo

meglio maschio o femmina

Male or female puppy? a look over to the Lagotto Romagnolo.

This is the most common question. A must for those who have never had a dog in the family. Who is looking for a dog as a friend and has fear of not to be able in the management. Understandable doubts that are deeply convinced do not depend on the sex of the puppy. The color of the puppy’s hair and how will be his adult cloak is the question that follows in the special ranking of frequently asked questions.

A dog is beautiful for his structure and morphology. The bearing and proportions, but above all must be a clever dog and of excellent character.

About the sex of the puppy the request is aimed to looking for a dog generally more quiet and that does not take advantage of the inexperience of the future owners. Sometimes the rumors, often false, to suggest the choice. Right information and considerations from other breed its can become a real nonsense for the breed Lagotto Romagnolo. Differences between the two sexes are there, let’s analyze it referenced to the Lagotto Romagnolo.

Lagotto Romagnolo female versus Lagotto Romagnolo male

The body

In some breeds the difference in tonnage between the male and the female can be really important. Sometimes even 10kg of muscles. It can lead to problems in the management of walks, for example. Even if a dog at leash should never pull, who is at the first experience with a dog thinks do not immediately able to handle this situation. Even the powerfull of a male can leave doubts. For the Lagotto Romagnolo the difference is not so considerable. For the breed standard the male is 2 cm taller and 2 Kg more weight.

The Beauty

It is more beautiful the male or the female? I have no doubts about that!
A beautiful male specimen is superior to a beautiful female. Of course if the male is a little bit ugly than it is better a beautiful female.I can’t choose even this time!
I would not be able to give advice on beauty based on the sex of a puppy. We have to see every puppy and if one has intentions to participate in show we will have to choose according to the morphological characteristics. Surely it is not a choice that can be made with puppies of one or a few weeks old.

Character and intelligence

Here the arguments are more abstract. We are not talking about centimeters or pounds or proportions.
We would like to determine our ability to have an excellent relationship with our dog based on the attitudes that the puppy should have based on sex. I think two sexs have some character differences, I am not so sure its are which one prefer future families. I believe, the female has more intellectual abilities especially in youth. The male is more clumsy and sometimes more instinctive. With the growing it can change. The female of Lagotto can become more complex. I think it depends on the arrival of the first heat. The management of hormonal changes can influence a phase of the character growth. Physical disrupting sometimes affect the mood of the dog. The male is generally more constant and when he exceeded the adolescent he has a behavior of easier interpretation.

The heats of the female

The female’s heat often moves definly the choice of the pet puppy according to the sex. The females go in heat twice a year and for twenty days we will have to be careful in our walks.
The signs will be clearly visible in home and we must be careful to our garden it is not accessible to male dogs. Especially during our absence. Not everyone is in favor of sterilizing their dog. Taboos must be exceeded to appreciate the benefits of sterilization.

A female not involved for reproduction should always be sterilized. In the interest of the dog’s health.

With sterilization the heats disappear and there are also some character benefits that I mentioned above. And again, we will no longer be able to choose the Lagotto puppy based on the sex.

Can you choose a pet Lagotto puppy based on sex?

Who has had other dogs often asks for the same sex of puppy. A good choice if we enjoyed it.
Even if the dog was from another breed. If there are other dogs in the family the choice of the sex of the puppy can be obliged. For example, to avoid unwanted couplings or becoese we know our dog is particularly aggressive with same sex dogs. The choice of the sex of the puppy can also be made for personal considerations: “In The family I only have males human, enough! I want a girl! “or otherwise. How to blame them Ahaha. Excluding these special cases and others that at the moment escape from my mind, when we decide to enlarge our family with a puppy of lagotto we must know a lot depends on the relationship we will be able to establish with our Lagotto.

The relationship with your dog makes the difference, it is rarely a matter of sex. Our dog will trust us and we must always merit his trust and demand mutual respect.

Within the same litter we see puppies more lively or enterprising, those who arrive first to the solution and other who are more rebellious. More dynamic puppies and more calm. Character aspects that in the following months of coexistence with their new companions of life will be exalted or reduced. In the family will change the education and also the stimuli. Until the patience of future families allows us, we try to delay the association puppy-family. We want to collect as much information as we can to seek in everyone’s interest to create the right couple. Then arrive the moment that the desire to know how the puppy grows and who he is, becomes unstoppable and rightly we give up. Once the puppy leaves the mother and the brothers, and we too, the situations change. Puppy will have more spaces to give the best of himself, new friends and all the spotlight on him.

We have an unique certainty, we have given each puppy the basis for an excellent growth with beautiful families.

When to take the puppy?

In terms of the law accomplished on the 60th day of age, the puppy can be yielded. But is the puppy really ready to leave mom and siblings? The litter from the sixtieth day onwards shows important changes. It is analogous to what the families notice when they pass the moment of initial settling their puppy explodes in all its splendor. It is a process of growth that starts slowly from the seventh week. With increasing motor capacity increases the intensity of interaction and in an increasingly strong and decisive until the twelfth week. Until the eighth week the litter must be serene. Do the first experiences without exaggerating, adapted to their age. Without too much noise or frenetics.

Between the eighth and tenth weeks of life The puppy knows a new feeling: fear.

It is important to be able to follow our puppies during this period. Mommy helps us and our attentive eye does the rest. We are in the environment where the puppy has grown and it is easy to see if the whole litter proceeds uniformly in the growth of character. It is a delicate phase that must be held close to the mother and the people who have always reassured the puppy. Sometimes it is enough a sudden noise or a sudden movement, and here all together they look at you with a thousand exclamation marks:

Now what happens!?!?! No villains!!! Let’s do a little racket!

It kind of works like that. Maturation times vary from litter to litter. Often they also depend on the breed. In any case, there is always the time when the awareness of fear comes up. In Nature The feeling of fear plays an important and also vital role. The darers face the danger without fear and often get into trouble. In this period is mainly mum Lagotta to give important lessons of life to their puppies.  His boys in the face of unexpected reactions feel fear and are put back to the rules of Mother. Exaggerated games or eat in the bowl of MOM are some examples that MOM Lagotta prohibits. Instead we must avoid that the Lagottino perceals with terror situations that in the future will be completely normal. Other dogs, people and children for example. We want balanced Lagotti and for this we seek balance even in the puppy. Knowing the feeling of fear is important. It will not have to be overwhelmed by turning into terror, much less ignoring it by becoming a rash.

The character of the dog is formed in good and bad for a long time by the experiences made during this period.

On the day that the puppy changes home, as much as we commit all to make it as stressful as possible, it is a strong experience for the puppy. It can take days to settle. The loss of appetite and diareas are fairly normal events in the first week in the new home. For this reason we entrust the puppies after the 70 days of life. In this environment the puppies are at ease, the place where they were born and raised and will also be the place where to overcome brilliantly the first signs of fear. The Lagotto Romagnolo is a breed of dog that easily tends to the fear and confidentiality of the puppy. It is all too easy during this period to mark negatively the puppies of Lagotto Romagnolo that difficult and with so much effort can be recovered. A Lagotto Romagnolo grown and bred properly is a special dog with features that will have to remain in him throughout his life.

Entrust a puppy after 12 weeks

There is a time window in the bibliography that represents the best time to entrust a puppy.

Exceeded the period of the feeling of fear that arrives approximately to 70 days of life the puppy will accumulate experiences. Until 12 weeks the puppies are sponges that from every situation I learn spontaneously and immediately.

After 70 days it is the ideal time to leave the farm and enter the new family.

Here you will start to meet new people and environments. The process of socializing and character training continues up to 4 months of age. Traffic noises and cars if it will be a puppy that lives in the city. and other dogs, adults and puppies like him. Games made under the watchful eye of his new family. For the respect of the hierarchies will have to locate his pack leader. Learn to respect the rules of the family and the basic commands that will soon lead him to be a polite and happy dog Lagotto representative of his race.

Taking a puppy at 70 days of life is a good choice, often the best to have a happy and pleasant Lagotto.

Yielding puppies abroad means educating them and starting them to new experiences awaiting the vaccine against rabies and passport. expatriation procedures for a dog are not the same in all European countries. Although we have requests for our puppies from other European countries and not only do we only give them up if we can follow them in their growth. We look first at the welfare of our puppy. We entrust the puppies only to those who can come to take them in breeding. We don’t ship them for sure! If a puppy stays with us for a longer period we will take care of its character growth by starting it to as many experiences as we can.

Paying the utmost attention to the socialization of puppies is essential.

During the time that the puppies are in breeding, the foundations are laid for their adult character. Well socialized puppies that as adults will be Lagotto Romagnolo balanced.

Working on the character of the litter is expensive in every sense. It takes passion and seriousness.

We have to be there every day and commit ourselves to increasing the puppy’s wealth of experience. Experiences he will carry with him for the rest of his life.

In the growing phases of the litter, there comes a time when every novelty is taken from the chest by the puppy. It won’t always be like that. That’s why it’s important to be there when your puppy is ready for the new.

How the puppy’s character is formed

The character of the Lagotto Romagnolo as an adult depends on many factors. Genetics plays its part. Knowing the character of the parents is one of our tasks. The character passes from parents to children, and this is the first brick to put in for the character and health of the puppies.

Then comes our time. Following a path of growth that is not only about food. The puppies from the first days of life will have to be handled.

Simple passive exercises that stimulate brain development.

And then they will have to attend men, women and children. Familiarize yourself with the noise of the house.

And then get to know other animals, other dogs. Dogs of different breed and sex, their world must soon expand.

Puppies go through a phase where they are open to everything. They gladly accept the reproaches of adult dogs, of their mother and quickly, without fear, they distinguish between what is to be done and what is not.

Putting the nose in the bowl of the pack leader is something not to be done, even as an adult.

By frequenting other dogs, they learn this at the right time here. No adult dog would bite a puppy, but education is demanded. Now is the time to learn.

It is depressing for puppies to see only the person who brings them food two or three times a day.

It’s depressing to think of puppies raised this way.

Breeding beautiful puppies for character

Our Lagotto Romagnolo puppies grow up at home.  We want them to meet people and children from birth.

Our puppies stay at home even when living together becomes difficult. We extend their stay at home until the puppies are physically and mentally ready to stay out with their mothers.

Once the puppies can live in the garden, new experiences will begin.

They will know the pack leader, the adoptive father of all our puppies. This is very educational for them. All out, all together to get strength, games and fights between brothers and then all on the adult dogs. You are a spectacle!

With the game the puppy gets carried away and enthusiastically faces life.

The mother must always be present. It is she who educates and helps her puppies in moments of fear. Everything happens naturally with the mother.

The presence of the mother gives security to her litter. Going out of your kennel, walking in the garden is easier for the puppy.

The imprinting phase lasts up to about 12 weeks. Our puppies are already in their new families. Now it’s up to them to continue with the puppy’s education. We will always be there to help our puppies and their new family.

A happy and cheerful Puppy of Lagotto Romagnolo, and sure of himself will always know how to face life with the right momentum.
