Lagotto Week

Lagotto Week in August - MyDogDNA Participating

Lagotto Romagnolo is a working dog of Italian origin. It is an ancient "breed"; Lagotto-looking curly coated dogs have been portrayed in narrative images, describing fishing and hunting, found in Etruscan tombs. Originally, this multi-talented dog has been a reliable guard dog and hunters' loyal helper (as a retrieving dog) for the people in the lowlands of Romagna region, valley of Comacchio and swamps of Ravenna. Lagotto has a very good sense of smell and it was already in those times used for searching truffles.
