A Barbet is a classic French waterdog known for its intelligence and speed.
Barbets thrive in an energetic and optimistic training setting where they can express themselves fully.
These water dogs nearly died out during World War II, despite their original purpose of hunting aquatic game.
These days, they're something of a rare breed.
Their initial purpose in life was to herd sheep in Australia,
a task that makes full use of their intelligence and heightened state of attention.
With the right training, they have limitless potential for learning and usefulness.
