Hevnsent Lagottos - Lagotto Romagnolo - Mount Camel, VIC
Hi, we are a Lagotto Romagnolo breeder in Central Victoria.
We've spent a lot of time learning how to breed good dogs and rear good puppies. Our parent dogs are carefully matched using whatever health and temperament information we have available. This includes sending saliva swabs to Finland for a full genetic analysis! We also pay careful attention to the health and welfare of our adult dogs. Our mums and dads are fit, healthy and happy. They live in comfort, eat a nutritionally rich and diverse natural diet, enjoy hanging out on the farm and get to frolic on the farm and swim most days.
Our pups are born in the house and we monitor them closely until they are big enough to go out into a special complex built close to the house. Rearing them outside means that they never learn to toilet indoors and are less likely to develop separation anxiety when they need to spend time alone as adults. Before they leave our home all pups are vet checked. They are also well socialised and have experienced many small environmental challenges. Our pups run up and down hills, fall into ditches, play with cardboard boxes and plastic tubs, jump in puddles and climb in and out of buckets and ice-cream containers. This makes them very sociable as well as resilient and confident.
In the first half of 2020 we were inundated with requests for puppies and adult dogs. Due to this unprecedented demand we've temporarily closed our waiting list and stopped farm visits for anybody not already on the list. We really love talking about our dogs and having visitors but we simply don't have enough hours in the day to fit everything in at present. For now, we are asking people to join our mailing list (click the 'instagram' link above - it'll take you right to the sign up page!), which we will use to update you on the waitlist reopening and anything else exciting that happens with the dogs that might interest you.
