History

The history of the Lagotto Romagnolo dates back to 16th century Italy, where these water dogs were used for hunting waterfowl in the marshes and wetlands of the Romagna region, which is present day Emilia-Romagna in Italy. Their excellent sense of smell also earned the Lagottos the task of sniffing out truffles, a culinary delicacy in Italian cuisine. The Lagotto Romagnolo existed amongst mixed breeds for centuries, until a group of breeders and fanciers got together in the 1980s to establish the dogs as an official breed. The Italians still depend on the Lagotto to hunt truffles but, here in North America, he’s known as a good family companion.

Personality

The Lagotto is known for his gentle manner, affectionate personality and will to please. He lives life as if everyone is his best friend, and makes a good companion for children and other animals. Training is a pleasure since he loves to please and listens well. His intelligence and keen nose make him a good retriever, too. The Lagotto is happiest in the great outdoors where he can explore, dig, and play with the family and other dogs. He is also fond of swimming and excels at competitive sports. His high energy and stamina is balanced by a mellow and easy-going nature.
