Northwest Lagotto | Mission Statement
To be an ethical, active and involved breeder in good standing with the American Kennel Club, the Lagotto Romagnolo Club of America and the LagottoFoundation while promoting this special breed by producing healthy, unique, top quality dogs, with a focus on sound temperaments, increased genetic diversity, and disease free puppies. From birth, we nurture our puppies in an enriched environment that increases the health, intelligence, and emotional stability of the Lagotto Romangolo Dog through early neurological stimulation and puppy culture. We do not linebreed or inbreed our dogs but outcross all of our Lagotto Romangolo to preserve genetic diversity. We strive to produce puppies that are healthy, highly intelligent, mentally stable and capable of going into any type of work, sport or family life desired by their owners.
The dog comes first at Northwest Lagotto’s. We believe that raising highly intelligent and social Lagotto’s begins with an enriched home environment rather than keeping them in kennels. We maintain our dogs in a manner that respects their needs and their right to live a fulfilling life. They are family.
We believe that Lagotto make great family members. We only breed dogs that have proven themselves day in and day out in our home, our local town’s streets, in businesses, traveling, and during family gatherings. We will achieve our aim through clarity, honesty, and a complete dedication to the following:
1- Breeding only the best, show quality, proven family companion and working Lagotto’s.
2- Providing early stimulation to all puppies through Early Neurological Stimulation and Puppy Culture.
3- Providing lifetime support to all owners of our dogs.
4- By outcrossing our breeding pairs. Please read "Our thoughts On Linebreeding" page.
