Breeding rules...and then some. envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 13/03/2012 @ 21:42
There has never been any kind of inbformation given to any country, from the French club which is the reason why everyone went off on his own and arbitrarily decided how the breed would be handled. This having led to the mess we now have in our hands:
-Kennel Blindness
-Dogs being overused up to even 4 times in one year
-Over 100 studs available( but not used) with a concentration on ones being used ONLY if the have tight curls regardless of the rest of the body
-People wanting dogs available in their back yard
- A country making it impossible to use any studs seeing that stud fee is 210 to 240€ plus same per pup for a male that has doen nothing? Who can afford it??????unless you sell dogs for over 2000€????????Who does??????

Of course we must mix as many dogs as possible........easy to say.

Million dollar questions. envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 13/03/2012 @ 10:46

From left to right:Thelma, Floirac Déjà Vue,Coccolina, French Lover, Compay II and Booly Wooly.
How many descendants do you have who have reproduced ( except Floirac and French, still a bit young)
and how have you contributed to the gene pool?

I think we're getting up there in numbers of pups who have your blood! What do you think?
Are you ready to welcome another bloodline into our home? Think about it and we'll talk.

All decisions are team decisions because all the dogs I own are under my roof*,not, it makes for a lot.That is my choice.

* except Ulysse di Barbochos Reiau de Prouvenco and off-spring Billabong du Pré de Rédy, now French registered so he can contribute to the gene pool. A little political statement: I am totally against using and re-using the same male, over and over and several times in the same year.There are more and more examples and another one coming soon.

Statistics are now showing that this is a fact and not at all good for the breed.Why does everyone run to the same male when some have never been used? That's suicidal for the Barbet and its survival.

All brown. 5 males, 5 females, all with more or less white.
Bravo Ela!

Barbet Canada: National show this weekend envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 11/03/2012 @ 07:05
Barbets, Barbets, Barbets...Years of work for the breed's survival starting to pay off!Very very nice write up, too!

( ps: the photo shown IS a the way! not a Barbet!The Barbet is after! )

Floirac at the top of the cage! envoyé par Elaine Fichter le 05/03/2012 @ 21:25

Floirac Déjà Vue posing with Jennifer, on the cage where they spent a part of their day. With soooooooooo many people coming by and putting their fingers in the cages, it's hard for them to have to accept this type of activity.If someone wants to see them up close, no problem!
We let them rest in the cage, knowing that they need to perform in the ring," work" for the breed. That's their reason for being there, although I know they would rather be chasing after ducks, but they will do anything to make us happy, even play buffooons.
They are justly rewarded when they go home and welcomed by the others...who have already paid their dues.

Notice the nice banner placed on the cage. It features Chesara de la serve de la chapelle d'Alexandre next to Chaman, the brown Barbet.
It certainly got people interested!Thank you Dr Geissant for your hard work for the Barbet.

A bit of "hurry up and wait", but when it was time to shine, we shone.
Came in 2nd behind the Braque Saint Germain as we did last year also, and I agree that when showing a rare breed, regardless of how rare it is, judges look for homogeneity in the subjects shown.No scoop on that!

Merci Jennifer, Caroline, Pascale et Patrice!

The comments about the Barbet from the President of the SCC:

the Barbet must be solid, you must feel the strength in the bones, have a wide head, "regard franc"( confident!), good character strong( not wimpy) enough to be able to retrieve in difficult situations in water, ponds. His coat must be light and easy to manage, again to be able to get out of water easily and get bramble off so that pices don't get stuck in his coat. He must have good round powerful feet.

The Barbet is evolving in numbers, thanks to births in foreign countries.
( I was told that by several judges recently who have judged the Barbet in Scandinavain coutries, especially.

The banner posted by the club, certainly drew much needed attention and we heard many comments about how many had never heard of the breed...700 000 visitors in just over one week. The Salon de l'Agriculture(Concours Général Agricole) is THE place to be, even for politicians.

I was of course, happy to see that some judges heard( listened) and hopefully will apply what was said about the breed and the interpretation of the standard.
