After many years of sharing our Barbet news and writing about the growth and development of our Barbet puppies we retired the blog at the end of 2020. All of the past entries remain posted so feel free to take a look around and scroll through previous posts to get a feel for the breed, our dogs and how we raise our litters. More information about the Barbet (French Water Dog) can be found on our website: www.northrockbarbets.com
We had a wonderful week with the puppies. The weather cooperated and we had several trips outside where they were able to run around the yard, explore the shrubs and hedges and play with the big dogs. They also enjoyed playing in the pen we have set up outside.
Having a quick snack
Their indoor space has lots of toys for them to play with, especially things to chew and gnaw on as they have been busy teething. Here is a video of the pups playing.
New experiences continued this past week for the litter. They continued to have meals in different rooms in the house.
Dinner in the laundry room while the dryer was going didn't faze these puppies.
There were more visitors and car rides, they were tattooed and the puppies also had their first baths this week.
Their personalities are really emerging and it's been fun watching them interact with one another and their environment. They are curious and delightful little puppies and it is such a joy getting to know their individual temperaments.
