Default Barbet?

Welp, we met a barbet breeder at the expo today, and had a good long chat with them and now my mom is quite interested in them.

Anyone have experience with them?

Didn't even know what they were until google but holy cute!
They look like that big hairy elephant from sesame street lol

They have a very short temperament breed standard but hey, sounds good to me.

Even disposition, very attached to his master, very sociable, loving water even when very cold.

Seem a lot like portugese water dogs to me

Yah, they're a water dog/retriever Of course I can't for the life of me remember what breeder was there, but I googled another near here to look at pictures xD

We watched dock diving (and saw quite a few dogs going to Worlds!) and I think that had something to do with wanting one

The ones that I've met have had awesome dispositions! Calm and dignified but wonderfully friendly and warm.

Never met one, but I do like the similar breeds.

My old coworker has 2 of them. Loves them and has nothing but good things to say about them (and they aren't super dog savvy people at all--just wanted something 'non-shedding').



They came from a breeder in Canada and since they're so few and far between I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same person.

All I know is that she was mad at me for being sold out of raw tripe today.

I met two at the last UKC show - an adult and a puppy. They both seemed like nice dogs

We have a customer with one of those! They always call him a French Water Dog, though. He's a neat dog and seems very friendly!
