Kennel Club- Barbet Application.
Following the rejection of our initial application for the barbet to be entered on the Kennel Clubs` Import Register, we have now submitted our second application. As the Kennel Club does not publish the criteria that are required for successful entry to the 'Import Register' it is hard to tell whether you have done enough. While we were understandably disappointed with our first refusal, we are in for the long haul and after further consultation with the Kennel Club and general advice from friends who prepare presentations professionally we have now submitted our second attempt. The 60 page booklet gives an overview of the barbet as it is today and is truly an international effort with contributions from around the world so thank you those who gave their time to help our cause. The application process is not a quick one and so it will be well into 2008 before we find out how we have done. Until then we will keep our fingers firmly crossed.
