I am very happy you found and take time to read our webiste. Get to know more about the Yakutian laika and Lagotto Romagnolo also of our dogs and their life.
Here on the main page I want to write you some basic information about the kennel, so you can decide if you are interested in it and want to read more or not and find someone else.
So where we started? Our first dog arrived in year 2013. Which was a Landseer male puppy. I did not plan to breed, only to have a male which can be used for mating if he is healthy and sucessful for show. However it turned out, that he has a lot genetic inherited problem, also his type and body was not the one I prefered in the Landseer. So he was castrated and become our family dog without having any litter. Why Landseer? I was obsessed with their personality, so lovely, loyal and friendly dogs. Totally ideal for a family even if they are begginers. They know what you want only from your body movement. Very smart and caring dogs.
I was able to find a female for sale after a year long search in a kennel which was altrough begginer but I loved how they treated and teached the dogs/puppies. Also they did health testing and was very friendly and helpful with everything.
Why did I stop Landseers? Because of the C-section... Yes... They can not give birth naturally. Well some of them can, but most of them cant. Even if I love them with my full heart I can not watch them be cut up on a table like a pig just because I wanted to make puppies. Its very risky for their life, and that is worth more than a litter.
Breeding dogs for me is more than a hobby. Its an Art.
We can parcipiate in something beautiful like creating a new life. A life which will make a family happy during bad days. Creating something as beautiful and as perfect as a dog. Not just create but improve it, try to make with healthy rising and feeding a life-long partner. Whose owners will be satisfied and happy.
The reason I searched for different breed? During that 2 litter I had of the Landseers I totally fall in love with the whole puppy rising thing. Even if it was harder because of bottle feeding and rising them without their mother help I enjoyed every minute of it. I was devasted when I decided to stop Landseer and I simply coudnt imagine my life without a litter.
Why Lagotto Romagnolo? My grandfather was a forest and animal lover, the most of the things I know about forest, mushrooms and wild animal I know from him. Altrough he passed away in my early child age, I remember spending hours in the forest, walking, meeting flowers, trees, picking mushroom and simply relax. And I still do. However as adult person, I have less time now for the forest, but I did not forget how wonderful nature is. This is why Lagotto was my choose in the first reason. They personality however is more active than a Landseer, they are perfect family dogs, loving, caring, smart and easily teach able, also very nice. I can not lie, but it was important for me that they can give birth naturally. So only in an emergency they need non-natural birth.
I meet the first Lagotto on a dog show when I was showing my landseers, they totally amazed me. A brown male and female. I dont know who was the owner, but thank you wherever you are.
Why did I choose an other new breed? The Yakutian laika? Because they are like a mini-landseer. Altrough they are clearly more active, that is not a problem for me. They nature is totally same, and they are working dogs too. Which I prefer more than a simple family pet. Doing an activity, which both owner and pet likes, are very important in a good dog-owner relationship. They temperament is totally amazing, very ideal for people who love to spend hours with their dogs, they are amazing in every way just like the Lagotto.
Our breeding goal? First and most important is to rise a healthy and happy family member, who can spend at least 10 years with their loving and caring family.
Altrough we are not proffesionals we do everything to make a well-behaved, standard, healthy, stable-minded dogs.
I do not breed dogs which for me do not fit into my breeding plan! I am not afraid to cut out from breeding a dog which is: - Not HD A or HD B - Not ED 0 and Patella 0 - Carrier for more than 1 disease (JE, LSD...) - Has allergy and different inheritable but not test-able problems. - Too much far away from the standard ideal body and head. - Has color fault which can affect his health too (deafness, blindness) - Is agressive or shy, not stable in head.
I am spending a lot time daily/weekly to educate myself to rise good Yakutian Laika-s and Lagotto Romagnolo-s. I do seminars and courses, with official certificates about it. Use microscope at home and do research on things which are possible at home. Read and learn, research as much as I can. Our puppies also get the maximum we can get. We use: - Puppy culture - Avidog - Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS) - Early Scent Introduction - Socializing with Noises, Dogs, People. - Using different objects: Nail trimmer, Dry blower, Grooming supplies, Household objects... - Teaching them early stack and show pose - Doing nose work ...and many many more. You can find videos uploaded on our webiste and Youtube too.
Lagotto Romagnolo is not a labradoodle, goldendoodle or any other doodle. They are purposfully bred dogs with specific reason. The Lagotto Romagnolo temperament and character is easily predicatble, good for begginers and olders too. But you need to keep in mind that they was bred to be a working dogs. There are some lazy dogs, in my kennel too. But most of them need regular moving, exercise, running and playing. Or they become stressed, bark, whine and start to destroy things.
