The weekend of September 14 and 15, a bunch of Club Barbet Canada members and their dogs spent the day at the PawsWay which is located on Toronto's waterfront. The PawsWay held the event in order to show the public a variety of puppies, what they will look like as an adult, and to give educational information that will help them to make an informed, responsible decision about which breed would be a good match for their needs.
Club Barbet Canada and the Barbet Club of America in co-operation with the Orthopaedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) are delighted to announce that the Barbet Health Survey is up and running on the OFA website.
This anonymous survey is maintained by OFA and is of tremendous benefit to our breed. You can participate and read more about this survey on the OFA site directly.
