A lot of debating again from people justifying the shaving of a Barbet. A Barbet has a long wooly and curly with undercoat that you never brush out completely to protect him( according to the standard).
Because the coat is made of open curls and not tight poodle curls, when he shakes, most gunk comes out as you can see on the ground in these photos.
Then, you just brush out the rest and in 15 minutes, he's all new again.
Don't forget to let jhim swim to get the curls back!
