A Barbet is not a Poodle…

On the left is a Griffon Barbet and on the right is a Barbet Moderne ( Poodle type).

The standard was not  ever written for a Poodle…it has been modified several times to become a poodletype…The Poodle exists already. It was written for a GUNDOG called Barbet d’arrêt.

When you read here and there that the Vieux Barbet/Barbet Authentique and Barbet MODERNE are the same dog.. Then, you know that the person saying it is as blind as a bat. He or she has not a clue what he or she is talking about.
