Water retrieve with 2 dummies. Dog must fetch one, bring it out and go back for second one. Good girl, Froguette!







Thank  you Retriever Club de France, section de l’Ain, for having us and for the photos! ( Valérie)A very nice afternoon spent.

A neutral site for a French breed? Respect our work, please!


An extremely biased history of a dog called the poodle and not the Barbet breed…which calls the Vieux Barbet a fantasy? A neutral site for a French breed?, and not a swiss one, with only references to Jean Claude Hermans and his modern Barbet…as HE himself refers to it, is hardly what you can call neutral, Mrs ZUBER….with all due respect? vieux barbet http://www.vieuxbarbetfrancais.com/breeding-out-the-poodle-not-in/

Correct me if I am wrong, but my Barbet site was the first to give information on the breed in English…with almost 350 000 visitors since 2006.


Then, perhaps Mr Seguela’s site ought to have some attention?

http://barbet.free.fr And last but not least, when you are a neutral site, you accept both sides and all dogs IF there is only one Barbet*? and not just yours? Especially for a storiette you did not even bother to write, but Jean Claude Hermans did foir a MODERN Barbet as mentionned in your austrian “history”?


The history we all thought was ours, is not!

Neutral means we all contribute and not just you.

Vieux Barbet treasures, from my archives!

Barbets_Ursus_Udine Georgy7


On the left, Ursus and Udine di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco and on the right another photo of the U-litter at the Leobonnerie. In the photo is Ashley, my poodle, Mollymae, Thelma now going on 12, Poppenspaler’s Vincacao ( who recently passed away at age 14) and some of theU- litter pups. What a nice souvenir. That day we were working on them going to water…Miss you, Georgy. One of the most generous, kind-hearted men I have ever met. Your “legacy” lives on in these litters born in Poland and Finland.

…thank you Inge, for sharing so much.

Le chien berger de Crau


Un très joli document qui date de 1958. Si vous regardez de près, vous verrez quelques chiens dont un ou 2 qui vous feront penser au Barbet. Oui, dans le Barbet de Camargue/ Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco…de Mme Pêtre, il y a du chien berger de Crau: une race rare aussi, ancienne qui figure dans des documents historiques dès 1850. Je vous les retrouverai!
