I am told they look a lot like me!
I believe it is extremely important that one gets a feeling for how a particular breed lives and gets on with others and lives in its environment. The Barbet being so rare, there are a lot of different types available.
If you like their look and lifestyle…then perhaps you may visualize a Barbet in your life.
There are videos on grooming, swimming, running…all about being a happy dog.
For lack of anything else they do for the Barbet, they keep my name in the limelight. What more can you, me,I ask of a club?
I do hope that at some point they tell us which BICP they are training for and when that activity will become formalized and added to the standard of our famous “BARBET DE CHASSE”…for which you do not need a hunting licences whether it be 7th with gundogs or 8th with retrievers. Trying to keep up with me, is no easy feat; me, I say.
Pretty soon, they will tell us…what me, I said 3 years ago…but they will say it “en français”! Big scoop.
…at least, not in France!
I have been training Froguette for hunting for 2+ years now and you have seen a lot of pictures here on this site, but never oh never has it ever been without respecting the game and the process of the activity along with the rules. I have never seen a hunter treat any animal the way is pictured in those photographs.
Just a BIG joke. BICPs I have attended, nothing to do with the barbet club, are run according to strict rules and professional behaviour and organization.
I have just seen some pictures on a social network french club breed page that are absolutely appaling and disgraceful for a breed club to publish. Totally shocking!!!!!!!!!!! to promote the Barbet as an uneducated duck killer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That is NOT what happens at any BCE or BICP and gives a very retarded image of hunting and of course how the Barbet works. Disgraceful and typical of the amateurish running of the breed.
