DCKLAGOTTO Winalla Pride

Upon extensive searching lineage globally in 2015/16, it has been apparent some Breeders are lacking in Health Protocol. In selecting your Lagotto, due diligence is extremely important. Choose a Breeder that is BFJE Clear, OFA Good Hips/Elbows/Eyes, Tested Good Coat (no short coat genes), LSD Clear, and conforming in all regard. Do not overlook the Health Protocol, insure your lagotto is coming from a home/kennel that is clear of Toxoplasmosis, Giarda, Coccidi and has a Health Certification. It not alright that your puppy/dog looks good and is from a Champion lineage if it is diseased or contaminated. such improper health may well cause years of grief for your lagotto, shorter lifespan, not to mention health costs, inconvenience etc. Always look for a reputable Breeder.

With Lagotto rare in Canada, we do not have old enough Breeders to put all our trust into good health without Vet certification, being on a Club does not guarantee good health or conformity. Ducketts are the oldest breeder of working lagotto in Canada, situated in Parksville, BC at Lagotto Romagnolo of Canada. Ducketts raise few, those they do, they insure Vet Certification and have excellent testing results. Registered with the Canadian Kennel Club, Canada’s trusted Club overseeing the well-being of Registered Dogs for over 125 years.
