Barbet |France|

Barbet |France|

This rare French breed is believed to trace back to the fourteenth century when it was developed primarily for hunting water game. These dogs are superb hunters with a highly refined sense of smell that allows them to find game hidden in vegetation and along river banks. They are used for pointing, flushing, and retrieving and are particularly hardy dogs able to withstand cold and cold water due to their distinctive coats. Their thick, waterresistant coats form a beard on their chins—the French word barbe, meaning “beard,” giving rise to their name. They have excellent temperaments and can make great companions, though they thrive when working and need plenty of exercise and diversions.
