The Spinone Italiano

"What is that?" For Spinone owners, this is probably the question we most frequently hear. This big dog, with its unique profile, strong build, thick skin, wiry coat, rough beard and large, cushy nose, is a distinctive animal. But what most often draws people's attention are the soft, sweet, almost-human eyes that gravely watch you from beneath its eyebrows.

The Spinone is a versatile hunting dog, which means that it is bred and trained to dependably search for and point game, to retrieve on both land and water, and to track wounded game on both land and water. While the Spinone was bred to hunt, it is a breed that can be enjoyed in many other activities such as showing, agility, obedience and therapy work to name a few. The Spinone also excels at being a family companion dog.
