We went for a 2 hour photo shoot, check out the link: Mary Arango’s great photography: Was so much fun playing with kids in the grass and getting our photos taken.

June 2014: The puppies are growing fast; they’ve learned a lot, sitting for a treat, running through an agility tunnel, playing with a little teeter-toter, jumping in their toy box, searching for a scent in the yard and more…. currently working on down and how to walk on a leash.

the kids 4  These little guys are so adorable. Mom Olympia, keeps her babies in check supervising play and keeping everyone clean and fed. At just 5 weeks they’re using their potty area without any help, they come to a whistle or a soft voice and understand that nipping a human’s hand results in a whimper (from the human!) Outgoing, happy and curious. the kids

Information For Puppy buyers – Lagotto Romagnolo

You may have some questions about the Lagotto Romagnolo particularly as applies to a puppy. These are wonderful dogs and do well in families or with singles, they like to be with their people and will often choose to find a spot to lounge under your chair or next to you on the couch. They generally get along well with other pets and household animals as long as they are properly introduced; remember your current pet may not have experience with a puppy. If you have young children remember to supervise, no child should be left alone with a puppy. Your puppy can be rambunctious and can move very fast.

The Lagotto is an active athletic breed. While they are happy house pets with proper daily exercise they delight in work. These are good dogs for agility, truffle hunting, nose work, tracking,  obedience, dock diving, tricks, or other canine sports; they are quick to learn and eager to please. They love water and mud and love to retrieve. It’s important that your puppy have regular positive reinforcement and consistent learning of good puppy manners. You will need to teach them your approved way for fun and exercise, what to chew and what not to chew and provide them mental stimulation.

Your puppy will not have tight curls as seen on the adult but will be wavy; the curls develop as they mature with the full adult coat coming in over the first several years. The color of your pups coat will also change, an orange coat will change into a cream color, solid brown puppies change into a light tan with a darker undercoat. A brown and white puppy will change into a mostly brown roan coat.  A puppy with dark brown patches will have its patches turn lighter. There is great color change comparison chart from the Canadian Lagotto Club. If you are hoping for a particular color be sure and discuss this so you won’t be surprised at how the color changes.

Breeding Now Set For Feb. 2014

Comes cordis Olympia’s first breeding, Summer 2013 did not take, she will be bred again early next year Feb, 2014 to Terzo Kelo of Golden Comfort. We are all very disappointed that her first breeding did not result in puppies. She is very healthy and happy so all we can do is try again.

Please Inquire
Puppies available to approved show and pet homes upon notice.

This will be an exciting litter from a great line; dam imported from Comes cordis in Germany, sire imported from Golden Comfort in Switzerland.   Parents are athletic, healthy and beautiful representatives of the breed.

Olympia as a Puppy

My darling Olympia is my first Lagotto Romagnolo; she has an incredible thick curly coat, like soft wool. As a puppy she was bright orange, today she’s a striking cream with orange rimmed eyes and hint of orange on her back, her ears, around her eyes and mouth. When she’s clean you can see the outline of the orange pattern set apart from her pure white color. There’s no black in this breed so over time the colors soften.

She came home from Germany with the help of her “godmother”  tucked in a little Sherpa bag under the seat in the airplane. She was all wiggles and happy adventurer from the moment I saw her. Olympia adores people and she quickly lets you know it.
