Covered in long, curly hair, the Barbet requires an owner who is devoted to maintaining the coat throughout the life of the dog. The non-shedding hair in no way means no grooming. It means more! Just as your own hair tangles and mats without frequent brushing, so does a dog with a non-shedding coat. An arsenal of combs, brushes, and time will keep the Barbet looking his best.
