Join Our Club

The Lagotto Romagnolo Club of Canada consists of a small group of people who are deeply devoted to the welfare and advancement of the Lagotto Romagnolo in Canada and throughout the world.  Together, we strive to encourage our members to accept the FCI standard of the breed (as adapted by the CKC) as the only standard of excellence by which the Lagotto Romagnolo should be judged.

We aim to protect and advance the interests of the breed and encourage respectful and friendly competition at shows and trials.  All of our members are expected to be responsible dog owners and promote the interests of the breed by sharing information willingly and truthfully.
