The following list denotes breeders who are confirmed Members (and Officers/Committee Members) of The Lagotto Romagnolo Club of Great Britain, who have signed a declaration to abide by the Club’s Rules & Regulations including Section 15 – Breed Specific Code of Ethics.
Whilst the LRCGB does its utmost to ensure that our Breed Specific Code of Ethics – including health testing – are met, it is also the responsibility of prospective owners to undertake their own independent checks when contacting breeders. Guidelines on compulsory health tests can be found within the Breed Specific Code of Ethics. The LRCGB will carry out routine checks on health certification but if a prospective owner has any concerns regarding anyone listed below we ask you to raise them with our Honorary Secretary, Julie Nelson.
When looking for a puppy, ask for information on the status of both parents’ JE (Juvenile Epilepsy) and LSD (Lysosomal Storage Disease); together with hip scores and the results of the BVA eye screening. Further details on health, including other items where health testing is not compulsory, can be found under the Health section of our website. It is also important to consider the temperaments of the parents and the puppies, and whether the puppy being offered will suit your lifestyle and requirements.
This is not a full list of breeders (as some prefer not to be listed). If you have any queries, or would like to enquire about stud dog availability, please contact our Honorary Secretary.
COVID-19: Puppy Availability
The LRCGB is unaware of any Lagotto puppies either available or planned at the present time. The current restrictions on travel and social distancing make it impossible for bitches to be taken to be mated in the normal way. Responsible breeders would also be unwilling to sell puppies to unvetted homes, and prospective owners should also want to get to meet their breeder, visit the puppies and see them with their mother – all impossible until restrictions are lifted.
The LRCGB’s Puppy Advisers remain happy to answer questions on the breed and the suitability of a Lagotto to your circumstances. We recommend that you watch the website for any update on a return to normal, and always welcome potential owners and their families to Club events, to meet the dogs as well as their owners and breeders.
