But they can actually be used in other fields such as guide dogs. The Spinone Italiano's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet, working dog The Spinone Italiano dog breed can be an active one but it prefers to take things slowly. It is characterized by its slow trot that doesn't aim to just run off. It is a gentle breed that has had a millennia of interacting with humans. They can be trained easily as long as they see a purpose in it. Spinone Italiano are friendly towards strangers but they will defend their family if under direct threat. They are affectionate towards those they know and are very patient.
