Show homes is how Laodicea Lagotto exists.   See, Geoff would have at least six Lagotto live with him; however, Miranda has imposed the limitation of two dogs to live in the home (2 is actually stretching that a bit).  So, in order to keep a healthy breeding and showing program in Geoff’s life, he has reached out to people that would like to become show homes for Laodicea Lagotto Romagnolos.  This means that the show home raises a healthy Lagotto bred by Laodicea, and Geoff can show the dog in conformation and retain the breeding rights.

At this point we have a number of show homes, but we are always up for more opportunities.  We typically look for people that have the right environment for Lagotto Romagnolo’s  to thrive recognizing that they thrive in a plethora of settings. We have found that kids have a big impact on the development of our dogs.  Our desire is that we also have owners that live in the Fraser Valley, although we have been known to have homes in adjoining provinces and states – logistically it makes more sense to have them close.   

The typical agreement allows people to have a dog, where they cover the normal expenses of a pet, all other expenses are that of Laodicea Lagotto Romagnolo.  If you are interested in such an agreement, please don’t hesitate to contact Geoff at 604-600-1841.

Being a show home has been a great experience.  Loving our dog in our home and giving her a normal family life, but also having the support of Geoff as a breeder is the best of both worlds!  Two litters in, we know first hand our family dog is also well taken care of in the home of another family while she is whelping her puppies; and the great support of Geoff is for the dog health and training has been so helpful.
