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 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. She was Select Bitch from the Veterans Class at the 2023 National Specialty.

Eddie is a gorgeous boy from our most recent litter. He is the 2022 Barbet National Puppy Stakes winner and the #2 NOHS Barbet for 2023 in extremely limited showing. Ed is taking some time off to mature and will be back in the ring in the future.

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, 2021, and 2022. Solene has always been shown very sparingly but she loves every minute of it. Now retired, Solene is our most special star.
