You may have no inclination to train your Barbet puppy to be a working gundog, however I would still thoroughly recommend that you read the following slim volume, if possible before your puppy arrives . . . it is a real  revelation! Although written by a gundog specialist the vast majority of the content is applicable to ALL breeds.
"RESPECT AND LEADERSHIP IN DOG TRAINING AND RELATED ARTICLES"   by Anthea Lawrence   ISBN 1-41205478-8 published by Trafford and available from Amazon where, although recently out of stock, it is now available again.

For anyone embarking on training a pup to the gun I can also recommend Anthea's other three book. The writing style in all four books is most enjoyable and the training information is both detailed and extremely helpful . . .  and YES . . . I have read all four volumes several times!!
