Keep the Breed Healthy!

The Lagotto Romagnolo is generally a healthy breed but does have some serious and even potentially deadly diseases.  

Health testing is the most important tool every breeder should use when selecting dogs to breed. Without knowing the genetic & structural health of dogs to pair the probability of serious health issues the progeny increases. 

It is the breeders responsibility to test all dogs and to openly share results but at the same time the puppy buyer is responsible to ask about each important test and to require verifiable proof of the results.
