This year in France, on August 4th, there has been arranged a Symposium, it will be financed by the SCC (French Kennel Club) and will have experts giving answers to various questions that are being submitted now. Barbet owners and breeders from around the world will be in attendendance.
There will also be on the same day, the National Elevage, which is the French Barbet (and other Water Dogs) Clubs National Show. This has usually been very well attended with people from across the world. My pups will be able to enter the show in the puppy class, and also attend the Symposium. Worth thinking about (although I know the Olympics will clash with this event)!
