Overview
This ancient breed originated in Italy and is extremely uncommon in the United States. A versatile and popular hunting dog, they excel in pointing and retrieving. The Spinone Italiano is an excellent swimmer that is suited for hunting on all types of terrain and in all climates. In addition to their hunting skills this breed makes a lovely companion.
Character
Often referred to as the Spinoni, this breed is a large, strong, and substantial dog with a distinctive appearance. In their hunting duties they exhibit great stamina and endurance and are also methodical and efficient. They are not considered a racy or flashy breed. As companions they exhibit a loving, sweet, and affectionate nature.
Temperament
The Spinone Italiano is exceedingly intelligent, exuberant, and cheerful. They take their hunting duties very seriously, but are lively and entertaining in the home environment. They thrive on human companionship and do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. They will suffer separation anxiety and will become bored and destructive. Spinone Italianos are excellent with considerate children and other household pets, although they do have a tendency to chase after anything that runs. The Spinone Italiano is generally quiet and is not suited for use as protection. They have a very patient nature and will return respect they are given.
Care
This breed requires weekly brushing as well as occasional professional stripping of the coat. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary to preserve the integrity of the coat. The Spinone Italiano is typically a healthy breed but may be prone to hip dysplasia, bloating, or an inherited disease called Cerebellar Ataxia which causes an abnormal gait.

Training
The Spinone Italiano is quick to learn, but may be stubborn about performing their master's commands. They have a mind of their own and often want to make their own decisions regarding tasks assigned to them. Spinone Italianos must have proper socialization training to prevent timidity.

Yes, the Spinone Italiano is a very friendly and family oriented breed of dog. Do lots of research before you go out and get a Spinone Italiano though. If you are able to attend a couple of dog shows, talk to the people that own them, meet a few of them and if any of them breed, talk to the breeders. You should always be in contact with the breeder before taking the next step in getting a dog/puppy.
