Lagotto are well suited to the demands of Agility. They have the intelligence and trainability combined with the athletic ability required. Most importantly they usually think it is great fun! Even if you are not intending to compete in Agility, training is a great way to exercise your dog’s body and mind – and yours! It also builds the bond between you.
Despite being a numerically small breed, Lagotto have seen success in Agility competitions; most notably qualifying a team for the Medium Team competition at Crufts 2009
The Club holds training workshops, which cater for all levels.
