Da Costa Vista - Bracco & Spinone Kennel


We are happy to give you this picture report from our great trip to Italy, the origin country from our breeds Spinone and Bracco Italiano. And what a trip we had! Learned a lot more of the standard, work and character of our breeds and we are greatful for all we have experienced.
Thursday the 2. of December we fly to Amsterdam to join our friends Tina and Jaap for the drive to Italy friday. We are glad to have met Stefanie and Arjan again who picked us up on the airport, and Lisbeth who was staying in Tina and Jaaps house.

So friday we drove through Europe to enter Italy and Castelletto to book in our hotel Le Palme.
Saturay we enjoyed the company of the lovely people Nadia, Salvatore and Matteo, Kennel del Mucrone. The family of Nadir Guerrini have bred Spinoni for several years and have lots of experience and knowledge about Spinone. Sadly Nadir past away, so his daughter Nadia is continuing the breeding. Staying with them I learned a lot of things I will remember breeding and owning Spinone. We will remember your kindness and hospitality forever.

We also visited the professional dogtrainer Rebaschio, Kennel dell`Olltrepò. He traines and goes to fieldtrials with Spinoni and Bracchi Italiani with great succsess.

This same day we went to kennel Ludstar to discuss the future possibilities of breeding and to see their dogs.
