We are now accepting applications for Spring/Summer 2023 puppies!
At Lagotto on the Hill, we want to make sure that every puppy has a suitable forever home waiting for them to arrive. In order to accomplish this, we only breed puppies when there is enough qualified families waiting for them to arrive. This is why we have a puppy waitlist.
Over-breeding is a problem for the dog world. A patient approach is necessary so that no puppy is ever placed without careful consideration, an understanding of the breeds needs and our diligence to find the best fit for both the puppy and the home that awaits them.
When we receive a puppy application, we will review it and contact you to set up an interview.
After this process a potential owner may join the waitlist for a puppy.
If you are interested in a puppy from Lagotto on the Hill and want to be considered for a spot on our puppy waiting list, please fill out the Pre-Puppy Application Form.
If a puppy is not the right fit for you currently, it may still be possible to find the right dog. From time to time, our breeding program offers us opportunities to place adult dogs into a family.
This could be a dog who needs a Guardian Home for our breeding program, or a dog who was held back to watch as a potential show prospect that didn't pan out. There are also very sad situations where a dog ends up alone and in need of a family through no fault of their own.
If you are interested in an adult dog from Lagotto on the Hill and want to be considered if the opportunity arises, please reach out and Contact Us so that we can discuss it together.
Our litters are whelped and reared in our home and are socialized with children, other dogs and new people every day.
We raise our puppies with the Puppy Culture Program to ensure that your puppy has the best possible start in life.
Our puppies at Lagotto on the Hill are part of our family before they become part of yours. As such, we take great pride in creating a safe, healthy and loving environment for their early development. Likewise, we take care in ensuring they are placed with suitable, loving families.
This form is designed to ask questions in order to help you and Lagotto on the Hill decide if a Lagotto Romagnolo is the right breed for you. We will gladly work with you to select the right puppy for you.
Upon receiving this application we will be in touch with you through email or phone within 7 days.
