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 are truly having such a great time raising this litter of puppies. They are an absolute delight! Each of the pups have lovely personalities and we are pleased with what Billy x Lexi have produced as it is thus far a very uniform and typey Barbet litter.
During the past few weeks the puppies have continued to enjoy playing on the different environmental toys that are put in both their indoor and outdoor pens. One of their favourites is the tunnel which they enjoy running through and jumping on. In addition to using the potty box to eliminate in, they also make several trips outside to potty - good bathroom habits are well under way. They have had many visitors over the last few weeks, delighting them with their antics and impressing them with their sweetness. Car rides to new places have been uneventful with little to no noise from the little ones. Their temperament testing is now complete as well. We are happy to say that they have taken every new experience in stride!
The puppies eating outside at 5 weeks
They love the swing too! 6 weeks old.
Summer is a great playmate - 6 weeks
Ron - splashing in the water bowl at 5 weeks
With the weather being so warm there is often water for them to play with in their outdoor pen and they take full advantage of being able to wade and splash in it. In fact they will resort to splashing in their drinking bowl if nothing else is available!
Backyard play at 7 weeks
Frozen beef windpipes are greatly enjoyed

Soon they will be departing for their new homes and we will treasure the remaining time we have with them while they are still in our care.
