I have to admit that working with 7 pups is a piece of cake, compared to having to deal with 11…So, tell me they don’t know what’s going on! They learn extremely fast and I have built them a frame to navigate in. “All” new owners have to do is follow up on it. Dogs are creatures of habit, and extremely rigorous…humans often mess them up, because they are not rigorous! The Barbet is a dog who thinks and you need to show them you know best or they will run you wild.
