The Barbet needs to have hair over the eyes, so he cannot see…in order to protect him from the reeds in water ( I guess they jump out at him?!) and also to protect him from thorns…I never knew there were thorns in water. Working on my learning curve…As you see..they don’t need to have their eyes covered to protect them, but their body.Perhaps some overalls ought to do it…for a rustic dog…?The things you hear sometimes, do make you wonder.
Froguette is not hurt, we were just training to see what I remembered to do, in case of emergency.Tail injury and below a paw bandaged up.Now, will I be able to do it in a real emergency? I strongly recommend everyone to do the training. You really never know when it may be a question of life or death. Day training was really really interesting and Something I had always wanted to do. So, DONE!
