On November 27, a breed seminar for the Barbet was presented by Florence Erwin from Club Barbet Canada.
It was a small and intimate group that consisted of a few judges and several new breeders. Three dogs were presented. It was explained that there was no perfect dog and the participants were showned what the faults were on the dogs presented. There was a great question and answer period with a good session with the judges being able to have their hands on the dogs.
A member of Club Barbet Canada was present at the AKC "Meet the Breed" event in New York city. Claire(Ch Neigenuveaux's Ermagarde) and her owner Judy McMaster Descutner were there along with Tracey and Tug to answer the many questions from the enormous crowd present during the two days of this AKC sponsored event.
