Gundog Achievements

We have LRCGB members involved in gundog work who have been flying the flag for our breed competing in Working Minority Breed Spaniel Tests and Assessments – news of these and placings can be found in the Gundog Tests and Assessments section. This section covers news and success stories of Lagotto in the gundog world outside of Tests and Assessments. If you have your own success story in the gundog field, please let us know …
