Every dog is the best dog or how a breed degenerates*

* tout est bon dans le cochon…or so goes the expression!

In the Barbet breed, there has never been any type of selection by the French breed club (except curls). Many conscientious breeders do the selecting themselves for lack of any assistance, but in France, it’s basically a “free-for-all”.Who can outdo the next one? Then, don’t wonder why the Barbet can and does look like absolutely anything under the sun.
