The AKC's Miscellaneous Class is just that. . . miscellaneous dog breeds that are moving towards a more refined classification. So, unlike other AKC groupings like the Terrier Group or Working Group and even the Non-Sporting Group where one can gain further insight from the grouping the dog breed may be in, the AKC Miscellaneous Class gives us little insight. Thus, we must turn to other facts we know about the Barbet to determine if a high-protein dog food is right for the Barbet. For example, we know that a Barbet is moderately active and has a friendly demeanor. More importantly, we know that the friendly, bright, sweet-natured Barbet is moderately active when it comes to energy. Thus, the Barbet needs proper diet and exercise to keep it closer to the 35 pounds side of their recommended 35-65 pounds weight. A high-protein dog food for the Barbet would be an optimal choice!

The Barbet is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Barbet could benefit from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in high-protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of a moderately active Barbet. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Barbet. In fact, dogs that don't receive enough protein can actually experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, a high-protein dog food that's optimal for the Barbet is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a moderately active Barbet.
