  • Care

    Because their coats are hair and not fur, Lagotti Romagnoli make excellent pets for people with allergies. Plus, minimal shedding means they only need to be brushed once every 1-2 weeks. However, Lagotti Romagnoli do need regular haircuts, ideally from a professional groomer. All dogs' nails wear down during daily activity. But they still require regular inspection and occasional trimming to prevent pain and other problems caused by overly long nails. Maintaining good dental hygiene is also important for the overall long-term health of your Lagotto Romagnolo. In addition to professional cleanings, aim to establish an at-home dental care routine that includes teeth brushing and dental chews or treats.

    Lagotti Romagnoli need a high-quality diet that's appropriate for their life stage (e.g., puppy, adult, senior) and activity level. To prevent them from becoming overweight, keep a close eye on their food portions. And be sure to take treats into account when tracking their daily calorie intake. As a guideline, treats should make up no more than 10% of a dog's calories.
