*Tillie earned all 17 points (15 are needed to garner the AKC Certificate of Merit) in the Best in Miscellaneous class, a fine accomplishment earned in 4 months of showing!  Since there are very few Lagotti showing in our area, we were lucky to be able to show against some of the very strong dogs in the various breeds recognized in the AKC Miscellaneous Group.  The Lagotto Club of America  http://www.lagottous.com/ is working towards full AKC recognition, and when all criteria are met we will be in the AKC Sporting Group. We are very proud to say that Tillie was one of the first 6 Lagotti in the US to be awarded the title of CM.
** Tillie's dam, Ginna, is one of the only Lagotti in the US with an OFA Exc hip rating

Tillie was bred on March 6, 2014, so we will be doing an ultrasound on April 3 to confirm pregnancy, and then the wait begins! We would be whelping this litter around the first week in May, with puppies ready to go to their new homes in early July 2014.

From this breeding we are expecting healthy, active puppies with outstanding temperaments, correct structure, coats and expression. Both Tillie and Apollo are very happy, social dogs, are quite affectionate and wonderful representatives of their breed.

As a professional dog trainer I feel it is very important to know what kind of dog you will be living with. I thought I'd share a bit about both Tillie and Apollo here.  If you feel a puppy from this litter would be the kind of dog you'd like to live with, please contact me at dogtrnr@mac.com to get on my puppy wait list.  If you are hoping for a Lagotto puppy some day, but aren't quite ready yet, you can still join my wait list and I will gladly refer you to other breeders who are members of the Lagotto Club of America http://www.lagottous.com/ for more information on our breed and Code of Ethics breeders around the country.

A bit about Apollo:


Very people-oriented and eager to please.  Very affectionate.  Gets along very well with Luna and Aurora.  Seemed to learn how to retrieve by watching our girl Luna - now he loves to play ball.  When new people come to the house after initially sniffing at them to explore, he usually warms up quickly to them.

Canine Good Citizen Test (passed) and basic obedience commands (sit, stay, rest, come when called); retrieving; jump hurdles; wait at doors; wait for food; we've done air scenting and tracking classes too.



And here's a bit about Tillie:

A lovely girl who sings when happy (she gets this from her dam, IGDM Ginevra, owned by Judith Tyler Martin of Shivaree Lagotto Romagnolo http://lagottoaz.com/), jumps up to say "hi" unless told not to, has a rocket recall, retrieves, hikes on and off leash, lays down, goes to her bed on command, waits at all doorways, digs like a looney tunes (like all good Lagotti should!) and loves to play in the agility tunnel. She's also a "zoomer"... will run around the house jumping from dog bed to dog bed, spins and moves on to the next. She is joyful and sweet and funny, and a pleasure to share our lives with.

Tillie and I have started K-9 NoseWork, which she, of course, excelled at ;) We will be starting up with NoseWork again once we are finished with this litter of puppies, as well as starting on some fun Rally games.
