Overview
The Bichon Frise is a gentle mannered breed that originated in the 13th century. They are versatile, hardy, and intelligent. The Bichon Frise was a favorite of French Royalty and today enjoys popularity as a companion pet or show dog.
Character
The Bichon Frise is lively and animated. They adore being part of a family. Their cheerful attitude is a true measure of this breed. They love to play but are not hyperactive. They thrill on constant human interaction. The Bichon Frise is a delightful and amusing companion.
Temperament
The Bichon Frise has an extremely appealing nature. They are highly social and are at their absolute best as full members of a family. They get along very well with other dogs and pets, and are excellent with children. They make good watchdogs and will bark to alert their family to visitors or danger. This breed is inquisitive and energetic, dignified and charming.
Care
The Bichon Frise requires frequent grooming. They are known as a high maintenance breed. Daily brushing is a must, as their coat tends to mat very easily. Professional grooming every four weeks is recommended to keep them looking their very best. They are prone to skin problems, allergies, ear infections, and deafness. Dental hygiene is extremely important to prevent tooth loss. They are sensitive to fleabites. The Bichon Frise is a breed that does not like to be left alone for extended periods of time and will suffer separation anxiety.
Coat
The Bichon Frise has a loosely curled outer coat, which is lined with a soft, silky undercoat. This double coat breed is typically all white is color as an adult, but may exhibit cream, apricot, or gray hairs as puppies. They are non-shedding and considered to by hypoallergenic. The Bichon Frises coat should not be wiry or overly soft.
Training
The Bichon Frise is an intelligent breed, but they typically are difficult to housetrain. They are slow to mature and males are generally slightly easier to train than females. Crate training works best for the Bichon Frise. It is important to be consistent and patient. They do well with obedience and agility training beginning at an early age. The Bichon Frise thrives on socialization and loves to perform tricks.
Activity
This breed is able to fulfill their exercise needs by adapting themselves to family activities. However, this is not a breed for a sedentary lifestyle. They enjoy daily walks and play sessions. They are well suited to apartment living provided appropriate exercise is given. The Bichon Frise loves to run and play in a securely fenced yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Bichon Frise puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

What is the difference in toy and teacup Bichon Frise and just regular bichon?

1 Comment

Anonymous

The difference between the two is the "toy" or "teacup" version of the breed was bred to be smaller then the original Bichon Frise, but in my opinion, they are already small dogs, so why do they need to be smaller?

Bichon Frise What weight is generally a female Bichon Frise full grown?

2 Comments

Anonymous

The average weight of the Bichon Frise when full grown is between 11 - 22 lbs. Females tend to be on the smaller scale then males, but it would all depend on the linage of the pup.

Bichons & people with allergies My daughter is turning 13 and has never owned a pet because of her allergies. She is very allergic to cats but is able to be around some dogs. I have heard that the Bichons do not shed and therefore are a good breed for allergies

I am allergic to cats and dogs, and I recently bought a bichon frise and I am fine with her, but then I bought a male havachon- bichon frise and havanese mix- and he is supposed to be 'hypoallergenic to, but my allergies have gone haywire, and my boyfriend is not allergic to animals normally, but he is allergic to my dogs....i say plural because, he could be allergic to their saliva if it is not the havachon he is allergic to.

I am also allergic to most dogs. But Bichons have hair and not fur, so they dont shed. The only time they lose their hair is if they happen to scratch and some comes out. But the short of it is a full Bichon should not be a problem for those with dog allergies.

I have had two Bichons and have not had a problem with either of them. I am allergic to cat hair or dander. Treat yourself to a Bichon Frise you will not regret at all.

Every dog is different, but Bichon Frise are known to be lively and happy little dogs. Although, they are calm when taught to be. The best thing to do is to teach your Bichon Frise to be calm when in the home so that he/she knows that play time is for outside.

My Bichon was so hyper for the first couple of years, he drove me nuts. I found that walking and hiking him to exhaustion made him a very calm dog. I would generally say they are calm for a smaller breed. They are very athletic dogs if you choose to hike and be outdoors with them. My Bichon loves being outdoors and can hike all day.

A well bred Bichon should ONLY be white. Peach or tan is a sign of poor breeding.

Bichons have mostly pink skin, but some have spots (like liver spots on humans). They tend to be more prevelant as the dog ages.

I have run into many Bichons near 20 years old. The oldest I have met is 21, and looked great. I think there are important factors to their long life: good breeding, good nutrition, exercise, and keeping their teeth clean.

you should take your bichon to see the vet. i don't want to alarm you because it could very well be nothing but on the other hand, our bichon had this sympton and it turned out to be pancreatic cancer. he coughed and gagged and we had no idea what was going on til we took him to our vet. I'm sure this isn't the case with your dog, but just to be on the safe side, have your baby checked out.

How often do you need to have a Bichon Frise groomed? Can you just let their hair grow long? I like a shaggy look. Can you have this with a Bichon Frise? Is it necessary to have the full fluffed hair around the head and the body cut short?

Take your dog to the vet for a check up. It may be something simple like the type of shampoo you are using. Be a responsible pet owner, don't self treat if you have no clue what you are looking for.

He's in a cage at night and I can't cope with it. He don't bark at night when in his cage but does when I go out. I use training pads but he just screws them up. In fed up if it. I take his food away between five and six and he goes to the toilet around 10pm on wards b4 we go to bed. What can I do to stop this mess. It's making me want to sell him. I also want to get the cage out of the way because it stinks of mess even when scrubbed and hosed down.
