Barbet to standard*

User comments

The Barbet standard has been modified several times in the last 30 years…and each time application was immediate by the questionable management of some . The  b-Barbet is a dog with a mustache and a beard with a wooly curly coat. That is  precise enough, isn’t it for a rustic gundog..pfffffffffffft. It’s called “genetic diversity” and the full spectrum is not represented here. With less than 50 births per year in France, for the last 30 years, strict observation of the standard is really of utmost importance, so they say. They? no comment.   * Lambs to slaughter…R Dahl.

This is Clyde Jr…in Sweden.His father is Cooper de la serve de la chapelle d’Alexandre. Un petit “air de famille”!  When you look at the pedigree, you understand that, too.

Thank you for the magnificent pictures…

 

 

 

It’s all in the head…but I am looking for the common denominator!

Hercule di Barbochos Reiau di Prouvenco.

It is an extremely hard job to try to set the lines and show how they evolve  for it is not always easy to get photographs. I want to thank the owner of Cilla for contributing to the Barbet’s history…with a capital B.

NB There is poodle (+) in all of these dogs, but not in Hercule.

Love to see their eyes, don’t you?!

If you read this in French, you should be able to get an adequate translation into your language.Where it says ,A European History, you will see that it says that :…Barbet amateurs notice some similar characteristics between the 2 breeds…as we speak, I am reading JC Hermans “ANTHOLOGIE DES CHIENS D’EAU ET DES RETRIEVERS, vol 3, p168 and it says, “Les Barbets…un instant ces chiens ont porté le nom de griffon Boulet parce que…”
