Categorization of breeds from 1907 by french author Larbalétrier, Albert. “Barbet” is used three different times as a part of breeds’ names. Barbet ou caniche (that is what we now call Poodle) was different breed than barbet-griffon, for which the standard was written and is now called simply – Barbet. Should give some explanation to doubts concerning the origins of the breed and its naming (Griffon of course).
