This is an unusual breed you may not have heard of, so we’ve compiled some Barbet photos here so you can get a good picture.
The Barbet is a very new dog to the AKC, and looks like a poodle. It comes in a range of colors and is almost hypoallergenic, so if you’re looking for a dog with low shedding that will be good for your allergies, look no further. They’re fairly large dogs, though by no means giants, so if you want a big cuddle buddy that doesn’t take up too much space, they could be a good bet for you.
They’re very intelligent, so you can look forward to a dog that is easy to train and picks up on things like potty and crate training easily. As long as you’re meeting their exercise needs — which can be considerable — they’re a calm dog to have around the home. If you have small children or other animals, they’re an ideal breed to introduce to the home. These dogs are very gentle, devoted, and loving, so you shouldn’t have to worry about aggression issues.
Like any other dog, however, to make sure your dog is living up to their full potential, you should make sure you’re meeting their physical and mental needs. Frozen KONGs, snuffle mats, and other enrichment activities will help keep a Barbet calm and happy. There’s nothing more rewarding than a content, lazy dog!
