November 2022: right now we arelooking for host families living within 30 minutes of Esch (North Brabant). These are males who are active within the breeding programme.
We are then looking for families who would like to contribute to maintaining and improving the breed. The dog comes to live with you and will come back to us for a mating when needed. As long as the male is used in the breeding programme, he will come to us every 10 to 12 weeks for a trim and once a year for the ECVO eye examination.
As a host family, you take one (or two) of our dogs into your family. These are often older dogs, aged between 1 and 6 years.
The dogs will just be part of your family and continue to live with you. Occasionally, they will come back to us to participate in the breeding programme. We always make written agreements about this in advance.
Our Facebook page keeps you up to date with the latest news about our dogs. Below is an overview of the most recent posts. By clicking on the link, you will automatically be redirected to our Facebook page.
Due to circumstances in the new family, this little lady is back with us. She is now 8.5 weeks old and looking for a nice family. If seriously interested, we would like to receive an email with detailed motivation and experience. [email@example.com] Rosehip's Dahlia … See MoreSee Less
The Lagotto is a rapidly, worldwide, growing breed in popularity and this is reflected in the increasing interest. Of course, we love to see that the breed we enjoy so much ourselves may also become a friend for life for others.
The Lagotto comes in a variety of colours, but never black. Of course, we understand that there can be a preference for a certain colour. However, we have learned over the years that the match between owner and dog is more important than the colour.
Imagine, you come to see the puppies and your dream is a brown dog. During the visit, the white doggie keeps coming towards you. Is the colour then more important to you than the interaction between your future friend for life and you as the doggie's new family?
If your answer to this is yes, then our advice is to enquire about a puppy from another breeder. Indeed, for us, the answer to the question is a definite No. We match puppies based on our observations of temperament during the weeks than the puppies are with us and the interactions with the various visitors we see during introductions to the litter.
Also known as the Italian truffle dog. With a distinctive curly coat which requires regular maintenance. Small to medium-sized dog. Intelligent, fast and agile. Sometimes a little reserved. Originally used for hunting the waterfowl, now known as the truffle dog.
