The Barbet Club of GB requires that all breeding stock is evaluated for Hip Dysplasia, elbow dysplasia and inherited eye diseases using one of the schemes available.

The Club strongly recommends that prospective puppy buyers only buy from breeders who have had both parents BVA/KC/ FCI hip/elbow scored and eye testing done (using the BVA/KC eye scheme). Breeding stock should also be DNA tested with satisfactory results.


The breeders below agree to fully health test their breeding stock and abide by the club’s code of ethics.
