Morena Lagotto Romagnolo Kennel

About Kennel

Main Page

I got my first dog when I was 11, as luck had it it was Kerry blue terrier. Athletic, curly, and wickedly smart girl that was outgoing and protective at the same time. I had to learn how to groom, train, exercise, create nutrition meals and keep this magnificent creature happy, occupied and under control. My interest in dogs’ sports has begun with Kerry and later on I have acquired interest in genetics and preservation of historic breeds, which is a combo of art and science in my opinion. Over the course of the years I’ve worked, bred and shown several cats breeds, as well as to toy poodles and Australian Shepherds. And, of course, my latest loves are Lagotto Romangollo. My priorities are, and always has been, – temperament, health and aesthetic beauty (luckily Lagotti don’t need any extra help with the last). Recently, my daughter Sofiya, took interest and has become my partner in conformation showing, nose-work trials, trick training and puppy rearing.

History of breed

Lagotto Romagnolo

Lagotti go back to at least Renaissance Italy, where they were bred as waterfowl retrievers working the marshlands of Ravenna. (“Lago” is Italian for “lake.”) For many years, though, Lagotti, blessed with an exceptional nose, have been used in the Italian countryside to sniff out truffles, a tasty and expensive delicacy. Though many breeds can be trained on truffles, the Lagatto is generally considered the world’s finest truffle dog.

Customer Reviews

Olga is an excellent breeder to work with. She takes great care in breeding dogs, raising puppies, and offering support to owners after the puppies leave her home. Olga worked with me to find a puppy that fit the temperament I wanted and that would also do well in the show ring. Olga has also offered lots of support to me as I started my puppies show career to help us be as successful as possible. She took great care in the puppy raising and as someone living local, she allowed me to interact with the puppies and bond with the puppy I got before he was able to come home. She took excellent care in the health of the puppies and making sure health clearances were done before they went home with new owners. And Olga takes great care in the puppies and owners after they leave her staying in touch with owners and offering support. I could not have asked for a better puppy buying experience than what I had with Olga. This whole experience not only shows how wonderful of a breeder she is, but also a wonderful person. If she were to breed Australian Shepherds, I would happily get another puppy from her in the future. Working with Olga, you will get an excellent puppy, have an excellent experience, get lots of support, a mentor, and also a friend. Thank you Olga! I absolutely adore my puppy and appreciate all you have done for us!

In December 2020 we bought a beautiful black tri Aussie puppy from Olga Leydan/ Morena Kennels. Aside from getting a gorgeous happy, healthy, well-adjusted pup, Olga was there every step of the way through the entire process, updating us on doctor visits, and his growth and behaviors via emails, text messages, and many wonderful photos and videos. We were also informed about proper Aussie puppy diet and care, necessary vaccinations, training, and what to expect from our puppy in general. Olga helped us register our puppy with AKC, and explained what opportunities would be available for him. Our puppy arrived happy and healthy, immediately ready to play and start his new life with us! We are forever grateful to Olga and Morena kennels for our beautiful boy, Beau!

I bought a puppy from Olga in 2019. She was very professional throughout the whole process. She helped me chose a puppy with the right temperament for my needs. She helped with delivery. She showed me the basics of grooming. Whenever I have questions about anything related to this dog such as training, feeding, grooming, she is always happy to help. If I decide to get another puppy I will definitely look at Olga’s available litters first.
