My name is Jeremy Ludyka, I live in Cornwall, Prince Edward Island Canada and grew up in Sydney/Glace Bay, Nova Scotia. My plans for the future are to become a Veterinarian and do my training here at the AVC (Atlantic Veterinary College).
I first heard about the Barbet when it was introduced into the CKC (Canadian Kennel Club), in 2006. I then researched the breed for 4 years before I purchased my first female, Febe, from a reputable breeder in Quebec. Febe was born December 25, 2010 (who could imagine a better Christmas gift?), now has her CKC (Canadian Kennel Club) Championship and we are working on her CKC Grand Championship. Febe has also passed her CGN (Canadian Good Neighbor) testing.
I have purchased my second Barbet, a beautiful male that I got from Charamese Barbets in Somerset, England. Hunter was born April 4th, 2012 and came to live with us that summer. I also have shown Hunter at Maritime Dog Shows. I am working on getting Hunter his CKC Championship; he now has 9 points towards the 10 necessary for his the Championship. Hunter has passed his CGN testing ( Canadian Good Neighbor), and has his CFC Junior Championship. Hunter and Febe have puppies expected September of 2013.
I am currently a member in good standing with the CKC (Canadian Kennel Club), the Island Dog Club, and the Barbet Club of Canada. I handle my own dogs at dog shows.
My interests, other than my dogs and their well being, include raising, breeding, and showing poultry and fowl in the Maritimes. I currently am training Hunter and Febe to flush and retrieve.
