It doesn’t shed

March 05, 2018

The Lagotto Romagnolo has a soft, wooly coat which, like the poodle’s, is hypoallergenic and doesn’t shed. This means that the hair grows continuously and therefore, regular haircuts are required. Otherwise, the coat will become twisted, matted and coarse, making the dog appear dirty rather than rustic, which is how it’s supposed to look.
When groomed to show standards, the Lagotto Romagnolo’s coat should never be shiny, its fur never clipped short or brushed out – it should be at least 1 ½ inches thick – and the curls should be evenly distributed so that the coat matches the silhouette of the dog.
Other than the trimming, the Lagotto Romagnolo doesn’t need much – just a bath every month or so – before which, the fur should be combed and after which, the ears should be cleaned.
