The most difficult thing about the attitude of a Barbet is probably to come to one at all. The breed is so rare that only about 500 of them live around the world.
Anyone who still wants to go looking for a breeder, would also like to know how he can then give his protege a nice home in the future. A lot of exercise and employment are good prerequisites for this.
The Barbet: A nature boy
The Barbet loves and needs long walks, where he likes to use his fine nose and curious to inquire the area. If you would like to do him a favor, build tours to lakes, rivers or the sea as often as possible. As a water dog, the four-legged friends can not get enough of the cool water, and an attitude in which he often has the opportunity to splash, is very species-appropriate.
In general, he is a strong dog who enjoys a healthy health and is happy to be out in the wind and weather. Of course, with his waterproof fur he has the perfect conditions for it.
Attitude with a lot of employment
To keep him occupied, his owners should come up with something that fits in well with this enterprising, intelligent race. From retrieving training to agility: This dog likes to participate. But above all, it's important not to let this dog get bored. With a good mixture of many walks and demanding employment you ensure that the four-legged friend feels comfortable with you.
Family access is great for the dog, as he enjoys the closeness to his owners, especially to his favorite human, whom he usually chooses quickly. If you're holding a barbet, you should also remember to brush the curly Barbet every day. With too little care matted and knotted his fur, so that only the scissors remains to unravel it - and that would be a shame!
