About the Barbet
Like all water dogs, Barbets, which are used to hunt wildfowl, are more than simply retrievers. They will locate and flush out game hiding in water vegetation, retrieving it after it has been shot.
They are not afraid of the cold, entering the water regardless of the weather. Their favourite medium is water which they are wont to splash around in for work or for pleasure.
