Closely related to the Havanese and Bichon Frise, the Bolognese originated in Italy during the 11th century. A favorite of Renaissance nobility, this breed was often presented to Belgian Royalty as gifts. With the passing of nobility the Bolognese nearly became extinct. The breed was restored and revived by Gian Franco Giannelli and is quite rare in the United States.
The Bolognese are small, sturdy, and compact. They are extremely docile, exuberant, and devoted. This breed is highly intelligent and possess a pleasing disposition and vibrant expression.

Does your dog bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
The Bolognese breed does best in a home with older considerate children. They do well with other animals. The Bolognese form very close bonds with thier family and suffer from separation anxiety if ignored or left alone for extended periods of time. If separation anxiety occurs this breed will become destructive and bark incessantly. They are easily intimidated and are shy and suspicious toward strangers without proper socialization. This Bolognese breed makes a good watchdog due to keen eyesight and acute hearing.
Daily brushing of the Bolognese is required to prevent matting. Monthly grooming is recommended. Due to the rarity of this breed and limited human intervention, the Bolognese have no health issues.

New dog owners, much like new parents, often have trouble deciding when it is necessary to seek medical attention for their dog or new puppy. The most basic rule of thumb is, if your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet. When is it time to see the Vet?
The coat of the Bolognese is long, dense, and fluffy; covering the entire body from head to tail. This is a single coat breed that sheds little to no hair.
Early socialization and obedience training are a must. Bolognese are quick to learn but there may be difficulty in housebreaking. The crate training method is recommended. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, and consistency. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Bolognese puppy. However, if you’re looking for not just a housebreaking method, but are also interested in adapting your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons, crate training is for you.
The Bolognese will do okay in an apartment provided they are given time and attention and are not left alone for extended periods of time. This breed thrives on companionship and benefits from a daily walk or free play in a small yard. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy. You can help your pup learn to be friendly by properly socializing him/her to new people, places, and experiences.
Help reduce the number of Bolognese 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. Even the most responsible puppy owner makes mistakes. Read up on these 15 common dog owner mistakes. Sometimes it just takes changing your own behavior to make your dog a little angel.

I live in WV and I go to school from 7:00 to 2:30. My mom stays home, with 3 younger siblings. If I got a Bolognese puppy would it be good for my family?

The Bolognese Dog would do fine in your family home. Just make sure the dog gets the exercise he/she needs every day and they will be happy to play with the family when your siblings get older. An adult dog would be the best thing for your family, as raising a puppy takes a lot of work and it is not fair to expect your mother to raise four children and a puppy.

I am looking for a small dog that is smart and won't destroy everything! I have school from 6 to 2:30 would a Bolognese dog be the right one for me and if not what kind of dog should I get?

The Bolognese Dog should be fine for yourself. But remember, an adult dog that is well trained and well exercised will not be destructive. But crating your dog will give you peace of mind knowing that the dog is in a safe place at all times.

A puppy in general is not for you. Puppies need a TON of socialization time, exercise and work put into them. An adult dog is what you need. But not a Bolognese Dog, as they need at least an hour of exercise a day. Unless you plan on adopting an adult or senior dog, do not get one, as most breeds of dogs need at least an hour a day.

Anonymous asked:
Does the Bolognese bark its head off when a leaf blows by? I have an older dog who is a senior, will this breed go crazy at her too?

1 Comment


Unless you've met a Bolognese Dog that has barked at a leaf when it blows by, your assumption makes no sense. No well trained, well exercised, socialized dog will 'go crazy' over a leaf blowing by. If you plan on getting another dog while your senior dog is alive, please do introductions slowly and understand that your senior dog was there first. He/She deserves as much time if not more as the new dog.

Anonymous asked:
Is it normal for Bolognese puppies to eat their stool and is it harmful?

1 Comment


Any time a dog starts eating its own feces (or any feces for that matter) it signals that there is a nutritional lack. Take a look at what you are feeding your dog. Get away from Kibble. Look at what a dog would eat in nature if it was wild (meat and vegetables, no grains). A dogs digestive system is not set up to digest grains. If a dog is properly fed, the stool does not have any smell. Check into the "BARF" diet. If your dog eats feces for an extended time, it can become a habit, which will be hard to break.
