Welcome to the Lagotto Romagnolo Club of Great Britain
Founded in 1996 when the Lagotto Romagnolo was scarcely known outside of its native Italy, the LRCGB is proud not only to have established the breed in the UK but also to have pioneered the introduction of Lagotto worldwide.
We strive to ensure the breeding of dogs true to type and sound in temperament and health, following a strict code of ethics to protect and – where possible – improve the health and genetic diversity of the Lagotto. Within our breed, we are recognised worldwide for having a strong history as leaders and supporters of genetic research.
Whilst respecting the traditional work of the Lagotto as an ancient breed of duck retriever, we promote its role as a gundog – on land and in water – and honour its function as a specialised truffle dog. We show our dogs, and the breed’s versatility is further demonstrated by its involvement and success in many areas – agility, rally and obedience to name a few, added to which Lagotto make an excellent family pet. Please take a look through our website to find out more about the breed and about our Club.
We are here to support and help our owners, prospective owners and breeders by providing advice and guidance on all matters ‘Lagotto’. We hope you will join us at our events throughout the year, and if you need further information or advice, or if you have any questions, please contact us – we’re here to help.
