Lagotto Romagnolos take to obedience and working trails like '"ducks to water", which considering their origin as a duck retriever is appropriate. They are naturally precise with their movements and very neat, unlike a lot of other breeds. They love being in the ring and competing and demonstrating heelwork to music and also working trials. In working trials and trained correctly, they have no problems mastering the 6 foot scale (vertical jump), the 9 foot long jump (horizontal jump) or the 3 foot clear jump, despite their size. A Lagotto Romagnolo has already competed at an international level for the Swiss Obedience Team.
