Thinking of owing a Spinone, we can offer you advice and support to decide if they are the breed for you. Remember they are a working gundog and need plenty of mental and physical exercise. Things to consider before you take the plunge.

About The Breed

Taken the plunge? You now have your bundle of joy at home. What next. We can help you care for your dog throughout what we hope will be a happy and healthy long life. Grooming, feeding, exercise, first aid, teething, insurance, heights and weights, to neuter or not, you name it, we will have experience of it.

Caring for your Spinone

The Italian Spinone is an intelligent, tireless, and thorough gundog. As a member of the Hunt, Point, Retrieve group he is best suited to rough shooting but can adapt to beating or picking up. His training will be long and require patience! However, a working Spinoni is a much happier and fulfilled dog. Fostering this natural instinct will give you a keen, eager-to-please gundog, and a calm and content companion in the family home.

Working Your Spinone

We are very pro-active about Spinone health and work closely with the Animal Health Trust clinical and genetics teams to provide information for breeders and owners. We have a comprehensive database containing pedigrees and health information about Spinoni worldwide.

Health & Welfare

There are lots of things you can do with your Spinone, an active dog is a happy dog and a more healthy you. They love to be with you doing what you are doing. Work, show, agility, pets as therapy, reading, cani cross, guide dog, hearing dog, assistance for the disabled, obedience, heelwork to music, companion, the list is endless.
