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.
