The LRCA is the AKC parent club for the Lagotto Romagnolo. We work to preserve and protect the Lagotto Romagnolo and provide education, guidance and mentorship to all who are interested in the welfare and advancement of the breed.

The Lagotto Romagnolo is a small to medium sized dog with thick curly hair and a bright, happy demeanor. The breed originates from Italy and was first used to hunt waterfowl. Since the 19th century it has been specifically bred to hunt the underground tuber known as the truffle.

As a working breed, the Lagotto needs frequent mental stimulation and physical exercise to be happy and content. If properly socialized they get along well with dogs, children and other small pets.  The breed comes in various shades of brown, with or without white, orange, with or without white, off-white, white with brown or orange patches, and brown roan. Tan markings are allowed.

2024 Calendar


It’s our annual call for photos to be included in the 2024 calendar.   Lagotto do it all and we need pictures of them doing it – Lagotti strutting their stuff in the show ring, running agility courses, dock diving, being silly, finding truffles or just about anything else this breed does, including being fabulously, adorably cute!  Almost 100 pictures are needed to produce the LRCA calendar, so send yours in!

 The photo winning the coveted cover position will receive a free calendar!

Kan Trace Kennel and Orca

“The Lagotto Romagnolo Club of America (LRCA) recently learned that an article was released in the AKC Gazette that included comments about Orca. That article was not reviewed or approved by the LRCA Board prior to release, and we were dismayed to learn of its contents. LRCA apologizes for this situation.”    “Kan Trace Kennels and Orca have been unbelievable ambassadors for Lagotti, and we celebrate their win at Crufts this year! Orca’s career and presence in the show ring have garnered the respect of hundreds of judges, spectators, and fanciers, and we as a club salute Kan Trace Kennels, Ms. Sinkovic, Mr. Booth, and Mr. Malzoni for their accomplishments with Orca stateside and abroad.”
