Upcoming Barbet Breeding

The dogs have synchronized their schedules this year, and we'll be having both litters within a short time this spring. We're excited to announce the second of our planned Barbet litters for 2015. Claire has been an amazing mom for her own litters, and tried to take over parenting of Solene's litter last year. She is such a great girl.
