Welcome to Hickory Tavern Farm! For more than forty years, we have bred and shown top quality purebred dogs and horses. Our Barbet are proving themselves in the show ring as America's top winners. With a thoughtful approach to combining the best bloodlines, we strive to produce Barbet and Whippet puppies that are outstanding examples of their breed. Breeding infrequently, our pups are making their mark!

Flynn had a really good week in Orlando at the AKC National Championship. She won Best of Breed twice including Group 1 at the Barbet Club of America Open Show under highly regarded judge Jamie Hubbard. This was the largest entry of Barbet ever assembled in the US, and with this win Flynn finished her CM title. Flynn is the 7th dog we have bred who has won a Certificate of Merit. 

But we have a ton of fun with them!

This handsome little guy is Roger, our newest addition! We are so excited to be part of the Heronsway family of beautiful dogs. At Roger's first three shows, he won Best Puppy in Show. Thanks to breeder Anne Bowes for sharing this special pup with us. We look forward to many wonderful experiences in the Corgi ring.

Back at the beginning of Hickory Tavern Farm, my first good dog was a Pembroke Welsh Corgi. My first show dog was also a Pembroke. I earned Agility titles on our Corgi, Bob, several years ago, and now I'm returning to the conformation ring with a very promising young dog. Exciting times coming full circle!
