Lagoti at least goes back to Renaissance Italy, where they were tied up as working waterfowlers on the marshy lands of Ravenna. ("Lago" stands for Italian "lake".) For many years, though, Lagoati, blessed with an extraordinary nose, has been used in the Italian country to snuff out truffles, a tasty and expensive delicacy. Although many breeds can be trained on truffles, the Lagato is generally considered the best truffle dog in the world.
