Colors in the breed

- from Laura Tanos, Italy

Thank you to Laura Tanos from Italy, a veterinarian and an icon in the breed to help us understand colors and their genetic components in the breed.

This article is not a detailed discussion of dog color genetics, but rather a practical summary to help understand color transmission in the Lagotto.

This very well written article helps to explain questions that many people have about our breeds colors. There is often discussion on ‘breeding for colors’ and it is our position that there are far more important concerns for good Breeders to focus on when producing healthy dogs that fit the standard for the breed.
