Barbets are mid size dog breed, it is smart, fun-loving, and affectionate and can be the perfect addition to any family.
Their fur is considered waterproof, but it still needs care, preventing it from getting wet and/or developing knots. Curly (can be just wavy or really curly), dense and wooly, they still protect you from the very cold waters of rivers, making your work easier and valuing your health. The barbet needs to be brushed daily and its clipping should be carried out at least every three months. There is no specific cut for the breed, and there may be variations according to where they live and the function they perform. When they are companion dogs, they are usually kept with a uniform length of hair. Although black is the most common, fawn, gold, gray and cream-colored variations are also accepted by breeders.
In addition to taking care of their fur and ears, the barbet does not require very special attention, which differs from other dogs. Daily brushing and ear inspections are essential, as are appointments at least twice a year with a veterinarian, up-to-date vaccinations and good nutrition.
