We have received the designation of 'Breeder of Merit' from the American Kennel Club!

We are proud of the dogs we breed and are happy to be recognized for our efforts. The Breeder of Merit program selects from breeders who “demonstrate a commitment to the AKC Community, dedication to their breeds, and actively promote the sport of purebred dogs. The AKC is proud to recognize AKC Breeders who are dedicated to breeding beautiful purebred dogs whose appearance, temperament, and ability are true to their breed. These breeders are the heart of AKC.”
The following must be met in order to be accepted into the program:

Huge congratulations! So exciting to know that the AKC confirms what Bill and I have known about you for a long time - you're the tops! I am constantly bowled over by the sheer energy you devote to binging more wonderful Barbet pups into the world.
