Overview
The Barbet is a rare French Water Dog but is growing in popularity. This breed makes a wonderful companion dog to the whole family. Barbets are very versatile and excel in all kinds of venues, from dock diving to conformation showing. Great at agility, rally-o, field work and is willing to try anything you ask it to do. The Barbet likes to please its owners.
Character
The Barbet is a medium energy dog that will try to do anything that is asked of it. If you like to jog, it will be happy to join you, if you prefer nice quiet walks, the Barbet will like that too. The Barbet is a happy fun loving dog that enjoys the companionship of a family. The breed is very attentive and learns quickly. He is not the type of dog that should be left alone for hours on end.
Temperament
A loyal and affectionate breed, the Barbet is a soft tempered dog and should be treated as such. They do well with children of all ages and exceptionally well with other animals.
Care
The Barbet’s coat requires brushing and combing on a regular basis to keep it matt free. Bathing & trimming once every 8 weeks will keep your Barbet in top condition. The hair on the feet and in the ears need to be trimmed regularly.
Coat
The Barbet coat is a double coat, similar to the Bichon Frise. The coat is not harsh or wiry, like that of the terrier. The coat when clean is soft to the touch and odor free. The Barbet has hair and does not shed, however regular brushing and combing is needed to keep it from matting. It is recommended that the Barbet be kept at a shorter length to make the coat easier to handle.
Training
Because the Barbet is a retriever and wants to please, it makes them easy to train. A good breeder will require you to take a puppy obedience class, to teach the puppy parent good teaching skills.
Activity
Barbets are generally a medium energy breed, so they should have regular walks daily. If you choose to do more, they are enthusiastic participants.

How much do Barbet puppies cost?

The cost to buy a Barbet varies greatly and depends on many factors such as the breeders' location, reputation, litter size, lineage of the puppy, breed popularity (supply and demand), training, socialization efforts, breed lines and much more. Review how much Barbet puppies for sale sell for below.

The current median price for all Barbets sold is $2,050.00. This is the price you can expect to budget for a Barbet with papers but without breeding rights nor show quality. Expect to pay less for a puppy without papers, however, we do not recommend buying a puppy without papers.

Annual cost of owning a Barbet puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Barbets true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.
