Laggotto Ramagnolo is pronounced like this Laggotto Rrro-manyolo.
Can you guess where they were originally from ??? ITALY! They use to be working dogs, or would search for truffles. Now that keen scent is gone from not doing work so forth. And use to be in packs.
Laggotto's are in the sporting group. They are easy to trian and very loyal to its' owner. They are well known for being smart and happy dogs, they are very athletic for dog courses but they do love to play frisby and take romps or long long walks. If you don't want to put them in competition than it's best you keep its' mind working. You could play hide and seek or look for mushrooms or chase, those were just some ideas. Becuase they are allergy friendly and smart , medium size and non shedding coat they are very popular in Europe, specialy Sweden. Many think it is a perfect dog others .... have they're own opinion.
Lagottos' are fine for apartment life, if exercised enough. It doesn't matter where you live actually, you just have to take themm for walks 2-3 times a day. If you have gardens and you still want your flowers then best to fence it off or they'll put where they think it's best. Dig! Dig! Dig! that's their nature, they can dig a good sized hole in a matter of seconds! In puppyhood you could probably train them out of it.
The Lagotto needs plenty of exercise. It loves to search for things and retrieve. They love to walk next to the owner and need good long walks. They are also good well known swimmers.Some have even tipped over water bowls and make big puddles or love to play in mudd and other gooey stuff.
Many have been known to live upto 16 years or more !!!
