Barbet Accepted into AKC Miscellaneous Status!

From the minutes from the December Board meeting – Barbet – Recommendation to Advance to Miscellaneous. The Board reviewed a Sport Services department recommendation to approve the Barbet to advance to the Miscellaneous. The Board of Directors approved the Barbet to be eligible for recording in the Foundation Stock Service® (FSS®) program with a Sporting designation in 2007. The Barbet Club of America has met the requirements of the Recognition of New Breeds Policy approved in January 2004 by the Board of Directors. Following a motion by Dr. Battaglia, seconded by Mr. Arnold, it was VOTED (unanimously) to advance the Barbet to the Miscellaneous Class effective January 1, 2017. The Barbet Club of America is designated as the Parent Club for the breed.

Congratulations to each and every one of the supporters of the Barbet in America. By joining the Barbet Club of America, registering your dogs with the AKC FSS, and competing in AKC events, you have brought our breed to this exciting level. Thank you!!
