As part of our club’s goal to preserve and protect our breed we encourage Barbet breeders to complete the recommended health tests on their Barbets and to share the results of these tests on a public, searchable database.

An archetypal water dog of France, the Barbet is a rustic breed of medium size and balanced proportions. He has a long, dense covering of curly hair, a distinct beard, and a cheerful disposition.
The BCA is working to preserve, protect, and promote the Barbet by providing education, recognized events, responsible ownership, community, and assistance in rescue.
