Grooming a Barbet
I was really pleased to see 'Buddy' a very sweet boy from Hallie and Cooper who is now 8 months old. His owner is learning how to maintain the coat himself and making a very good job of it. Buddy is quite amazing to groom, he is very patient and extremely tolerant and to be honest, just delightful. The owner is using a cordless clipper with different attachments to keep the body short but even, and they worked well on a clean matt free coat......it is possible to have a smart short coat on a Barbet without them looking shaved. Buddy is a credit to his owner.
