Here you can read what now defunct club says about the 2 types of population. One: the Poodle type, re-incarnated by JC Hermans which has nothing to do with the old breed.It’s called a BARBET MODERNE. Nothing to do with the standard OR HISTORY.
The other: VIEUX BARBET=> is the historical one, threatened with extinction because many have not a clue of what they are talking about…Fighting has gone on since 1980’s and it does not look like it’s about to change. I am one of the few to have archives on the real breed and my work along with some others’ is certainly not appreciated. that is life, but I maintain facts are facts and lies are lies.
Medication seems to be doing well..he’s not been ill in nearly 2 months. A record. Fingers crossed and hugs to his best supporter in Sweden, Camilla!
Iabada 2018 ( Isabeau von der Leibrücke) and Moustache 1886.
…but can you see it? Do any of the other “waterdogs” look like this one? Negative. Breed for health, of course, but not for mutts or Doodles! Otherwise send people to buy a Labradoodle or a Poodle. Continually breeding for 0% is not going to get anyone anywhere…
Here’s another example, below:

GuyGuy is taking his medicine for his gallstone, eating sometimes more sometimes less and I spend the time to make sure he does. We are now testing some homeopathy that could help him when he moans and is in pain. He IS a real trooper and so sweet. Every day, I am blessed to have him.
