History

History

An ancient breed, the Barbet is the likely progenitor of many modern dogs, including Bichons, Griffons, Otterhounds, Newfoundlands, Briards and Poodles. References to this French water dog, named for its characteristic “barbe” or beard, date back as early as the 14th century, though the breed is believed to be far older than that. Originally used to retrieve at sea, the Barbet’s thick wooly coat and webbed feet make him an ideal gun dog in swamps. Unfortunately, as breeds like the Poodle gained popularity, the Barbet was forgotten and nearly became extinct in the late 19th century. Fortunately, breed enthusiasts worked to preserve.

Personality

This brave and loyal dog is a loving pet and truly devoted to his family. Like any water dog; he enjoys a swim no matter what the weather. Eager to please; he loves a good romp outside and is easy to train.
