The Ancestor Of All Water Dogs

March 05, 2018

The Lagotto Romagnolo is ancient breed in Italy. It can be seen on 16th century paintings and some people even claim it has been around since the 7th century BC!
The word lagotto comes from lago, which means lake. Therefore, lagotto romagnolo means ‘lake dog from Romagna’. Indeed, the Lagotto Romagnolo is a water dog, believed by many dog experts to be the ancestor of all water dogs, including the Standard Poodle, the Otterhound, the Leonberger and the popular Golden and Labrador Retrievers.
Like other water dogs, it…loves water, of course, and is an excellent swimmer. And to facilitate this love for swimming, it has a dense, waterproof coat and webbed feet.
