Breeder Info: Hickory Tavern Farm Barbet

Breed(s): Barbet, Whippet

With more than 40 years raising and showing top quality dogs and horses, our lives have truly been enriched through the relationships that we share with our animals and the wonderful people we work with. We breed and show AKC Barbet (French Water Dogs) that are thoughtfully raised on our farm in Southwest Pennsylvania. Our puppies are very carefully placed in homes where they will blossom. We breed just one or two litters per year, and enjoy the friendships that we make through our puppy families.  Our Barbet breeding program is based on breeding sound, beautiful, and healthy dogs who are a joy to live with. Genetic diversity is of great importance, as is developing consistency within our litters. We are serious about having a line of dogs who are competitive at the shows and are easy to live with. Through 2016, we are the only North American breeder of CM winning Barbet. AKC Breeder of Merit. 2017 President of Barbet Club of America, Board member since 2009.
