This shot by Candid Canine Photography is the last appearance ever for a Barbet in the AKC FSS Group. Taken in Orlando during the AKC National Championship, our Marlee won a Group 2. As of January 1, the Barbet moves into Miscellaneous and the wider world of AKC dog shows! We are so proud of the advancement of this beautiful breed and look forward to showing a lot more in 2017. Local shows, favorite shows, new shows...America is open to the Barbet!

Marlee wrapped up the show year with another spectacular win, Best of Breed and FSS Group 2 at the AKC National Championship in Orlando, FL. Beginning in January, the Barbet moves on to the Miscellaneous group, making our AKC show opportunities much more accessible. We are so proud of our dogs and have enjoyed helping this beautiful breed get started with the American Kennel Club. Look for us around the dog shows as we make this next step in America!

Last weekend, little spitfire Hickory Tavern Final Grade CAA RN CGC THDN, also known as Fia, earned her AKC Coursing Ability Advanced title. From her first serendipitous lure course last May, Fia has become a fierce girl on the chase! Amazing to watch her in action. Congratulations to Leonard Tena for handling Fia to her CAA title, and to the entire Tena Family for their devotion to Barbet Fia!

|Canadian Grand Champion Hickory Tavern Secret Entourage|
Last Friday, our beautiful Marlee (Hickory Tavern Secret Entourage) added to her impressive list of wins by earning Best in Open Show under judge Jerry Watson at the Rock Creek Kennel Club show in West Friendship, Maryland. We are so proud of her since her mom Solene, grandmother Claire, and brother Micah all won Best in Shows in their AKC career. Marlee is the 8th Barbet to win a Best at the AKC Open Shows. We are really looking forward to showing her next year in the Miscellaneous class as the Barbet makes this next step in the AKC world.
