In this litter, there are companions, and dogs with natural retrieving instinct.The one and the other are complimentary. I am vvery happy, after 1 year of waiting, to see that they correspond to my selection work and what I think my Barbets should look like and they are all healthy and very affable and caring companions. This was a litter of 11, and they are all lovely!

My reason for being in the Barbet world

You can recognize the line. Slight variations, but true to the “old breedtype”. This took years of cooperation and trust, to produce or reproduce the type. We are right…. on target.Guess which one is Iabadabadoo? Her sister is there too and they all have Coccolina in their pedigree. Nowadays more and more Barbets have Coccolina in their pedigrees ( for obvious reasons)!

Something old and something new!

“My late female Steenbrak (Old Dutch hound) Boukje on the left and on the lithography by Verboeckhoven, standing next

to …her portrait, you can see a most similar “chien courant” (scent hound), in the middle an old type of local épagneul (longcoated pointer) and a “Barbet”.( text written by a friend who noticed the ressemblance…). Leendert Bosman.

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.
