Barbet CHIC Requirements


These are the required tests for a Barbet to be listed on OFA's CHIC database. Remember, dogs do not need passing scores for a CHIC number. The goal is an open database where all results are known. No dog is perfect, and the knowledge of these tests helps us breed dogs more safely.
