The cost of raising a puppy

The Investment in a Lifetime Companion

Congratulations! You've decided to welcome a Lagotto Romagnolo puppy into your life. These intelligent, playful, and hypoallergenic pups are known for their truffle-hunting abilities and their loving personalities. But before you bring your adorable new friend home, it's important to consider the costs involved in raising a Lagotto Romagnolo.

At Northwest Lagotto, we're dedicated to responsible breeding practices and ensuring our puppies find loving homes prepared for their lifelong needs. Here's a breakdown of some of the key expenses to factor in:

  • Initial Costs:

  • Puppy Adoption Fee:  The cost of acquiring a Lagotto Romagnolo puppy can vary depending on breeder reputation, pedigree, and location. Here at Northwest Lagotto, we invest heavily in breeding exceptional puppies with outstanding temperaments and health clearances.

  • First Vet Visit: Establishing a relationship with a veterinarian is crucial for your puppy's well-being. This initial visit typically includes a checkup, vaccinations, and deworming.

  • Essential Supplies:  Food bowls, leash, collar, bed, crate, toys, and grooming tools are some basic necessities to get you started.

  • Ongoing Costs:

  • High-Quality Food:  Lagotto Romagnolos thrive on a nutritious diet. Invest in high-quality kibble or wet food formulated for their breed and activity level.

  • Veterinary Care:  Regular checkups, parasite prevention, and potential unexpected illnesses are all part of responsible pet ownership. Consider pet insurance for peace of mind.

  • Training:  Lagotto Romagnolos are intelligent and eager to please, but they still require training. Group classes or a professional trainer can help establish good habits and communication.

  • Grooming:  Regular brushing and occasional professional grooming sessions are important for maintaining your Lagotto's beautiful coat.

A Lagotto Romagnolo is more than just a pet; it's a family member.  The love and companionship they bring are priceless. However, being prepared for the financial commitment associated with raising one is essential.
