The epitomy of elegance...Barbet way envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 06/10/2010 @ 20:49
Hard to get him out of the water!Booly Wooly...
The Barbet is known as a rustic, very unsophisticated dog...the sophisticated part of the generic "Barbet" went to to poodle...ouf!!!
They wouldn't say "crotté like a Barbet" were he a sophistcated dog, now would they?
Here is this photo taken this morning after him retrieving the dummy for 20 or so minutes, he still want not completely wet. It does take him a while to dry. ...makes me laugh when I am told a barbet is "sprizted" before he goes to a show as an overgroomed waterdog. 100 liters of water? is not even enough.

Beware of sources of information where there are no names on who said it. There is a lot of false information circulating about the breed and not from very reputable sources. Someone who is proud of what he has researched signs his name. I am talking research, not slander. The Barebt being a French breed, the information is in France. Anywhere else it is adapted to local culture.
Always crosscheck what you hear with another source. The information should be verifiable to be true, if not, beware. There is one Barbet,historically, but so many different versions that it is quite obvious, that along the line..;something happened to the Griffon the standard was written for. How many have ever seen an "elegant" griffon? Honestly?
http://www.chiens-des-champs.com/race%20de%20chiens2.html The Barbet is capable "at the occasion" to bring back a duck? The Barbet is a hunter and is supposed to do that. That's his reason for being. The above Barbet is no Barbet blood in her. False information? Look at the pedigree, below. This one is not even homemade.
