Our sweet and gentle Solene is the result of a complicated breeding of Claire with Bango du Pre de Redy via frozen semen from Switzerland. At her first show at 7 months of age, Solene won the Jr Puppy Bitch classes, Regular and Sweeps, at the first National Barbet Specialty in Long Sault, ON. She won her first UKC Best In Show at 10 months, and won Best In Show in a large AKC show in Washington, DC. Her first litter, sired by CKC/UKC Ch Neigenuveaux's Gambit RE, also a UKC BIS winner, resulted in 9 gorgeous puppies that live throughout the United States. Her son Hickory Tavern Secret Liaison CM is the first American born Barbet to win a Certificate of Merit, which he won by winning Best in FSS Show at his first three shows! Our Hickory Tavern Secret Entourage is a Canadian Champion, and UKC Ch Hickory Tavern Secret Garden is the #1 Barbet in the UKC. Solene's second litter was sired via frozen semen from The Netherlands using the gorgeous Nuphar's Four Leaf Clover. Our Flynn is from this litter. It also includes our Swedish export Hickory Tavern Wishing Well 'Penny' who has earned her second level Rally title at just one year of age!
