As a way for you to learn more about what can be expected from our puppies, please read this to the end.
Also, watch the videos at the bottom of this page for visual reference.
Once you have finished and are still interested in owning one of these remarkable dogs, please text me @ 317-507-1991 to set up a callback time for us to talk and arrange for you to receive photos of available pups.
I do train with the dogs most of the day, so a text is the fastest way to reach me. Please be patient as I am usually able to respond within 1 business day. During shows and obedience competition season, we are often unavailable on the weekends. But don't fret...it is very important to us that you and your future Lagotto be united soon!
Puppies go home microchipped, and have been appropriately wormed and vaccinated.
10 WEEK Training (additional)
Puppies are crate trained and can maintain relief needs for 6-7 hours if the schedule is followed.
Puppies arrive with an audible cue awareness (we happen to use a clicker) and understand the following commands at a kindergarten level. Meaning under low distractions and for low durations and must be rewarded with every command.
-Walk on a leash
We use operant conditioning and clickers for markers. Please see video below for examples
We do also have young adults in training for obedience and diabetic alert dogs available.
Deposits are $2,500 and are refundable in the event we can't provide a puppy in the agreed upon contractual time frame.
Balance for puppies is due at 7 weeks after temperament testing is done and a suitable puppy is selected.
NOTE: NO PUPPIES ARE SOLD VIA TEXT OR EMAIL!
Temperament tests are formal, videotaped, and will be available on YouTube.
Temperament matching is very important. We are not identifying "bad puppies", we are identifying the characteristics of each pup. This allows strategies in raising them so they can reach their full potential. We will not pick your puppy for you unless asked, but we will have an individual profile them to help you make the best choice.

Lysosomal Storage Disease

They are raised in the home and underfoot.
They are loaded on a clicker (Marker) and begin crate association and leash walking at 7 weeks.
Puppies leave at 8 weeks if picked up.
