Solene won the FSS Group at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship in 2015, just a few weeks after becoming the first American Bred Barbet to earn a Certificate of Merit. In July 2020, Solene won Reserve Best in Show in the NOHS competition in Canfield, OH. Solene is the 2020 #1 Barbet bitch, qualifying in the Top 5 for Westminster for 2020 and 2021. In 2021, she is the #2 Breed and #3 All Breed Barbet, shown just a handful of times. Solene has always been shown very sparingly but she loves every minute of it.

Flynn is one of our stars at Hickory Tavern Farm. She is the first AKC Champion Barbet, an excellent dock diver, and a good water retriever. She earned her Certificate of Merit title at under two years of age. A 2021 highlight, Flynn won Best of Breed at the Morris & Essex Kennel Club show under Doug Johnson. She is a delightful personality!


Flynn was also one of the first high ranked Barbet in NADD with a personal best jump of 16'7". Flynn earned an invitation to the 2018 NADD Nationals in Orlando, Florida. Her daughter Jessa jumped 17'3" in her first year in NADD.

Flynn is the 2020 #1 NOHS Barbet, and the proud mom of three beautiful litters, an AKC Grand Champion., and Select Bitch at the 2021 Westminster Kennel Club.

Radar earned his AKC Championship in just 5 shows in the fall of 2021. He was always Best of Winners or Best of Breed and finished with a 5 point major in Orlando. We are quite excited to show this boy in 2022; he's something entirely different for us!
