All You Need To Know About The Bichon Frise Puppy

A good-size Bichon will stand a shade under a foot tall at the shoulder. The breed’s glory is a white hypoallergenic coat, plush and velvety to the touch, featuring rounded head hair that sets off the large, dark eyes and black leathers of the nose and lips.

Bichons are adaptable companions who get on well with other dogs and children. Alert and curious, Bichons make nice little watchdogs but they are lovers, not fighters, and operate under the assumption that there are no strangers, just friends they haven’t met yet. Their confidence and size make them ideal city dogs. Bichons train nicely and enjoy performing for their loved ones. Finally, there’s the happy-go-lucky Bichon personality that draws smiles and hugs wherever they go.

With compact bodies, baby-doll faces, and fluffy white hair, Bichons are a very appealing breed whose looks are enhanced by a perky, good-natured disposition.

The Bichon, as he’s affectionately called, is related to several small breeds: the Coton de Tulear, a dog who originated off the African coast on an island near Madagascar; the Bolognese, bred in northern Italy near the city of Bologna; the Havanese, from Cuba; and the Maltese, developed on the island of Malta in the Mediterranean. Bichons also appear to have originated in the Mediterranean and to have been taken along on trade routes into other countries. bichon frise puppies for sale

Bichons may be small dogs — large specimens reach barely a foot in height  but they’re hardy. Despite their diminutive size, they’re not classified as a Toy breed by the American Kennel Club; instead, they’re members of the Non-Sporting Group.

Bichons are always white (although puppies may be cream or pale yellow), with black eyes and black noses. Their arched necks give them a proud, confident look, while their well-plumed tails curve gracefully over their backs. bichon puppies for sale

If you’re looking for a wonderful family pet, consider the Bichon. This dog loves to play. He’s always happy (except when left alone for long periods of time), and his demeanor is affectionate and gentle.

Because they don’t shed like other breeds, Bichons often are recommended for people with allergies. This is something you should discuss with your allergist, since not everyone reacts the same way to a Bichon. Before making a commitment to getting a Bichon — or any type of dog — be sure to spend some time in the presence of the breed if you have allergies.

Bichons have a reputation for suffering from separation anxiety. If you must leave your dog home alone for long periods of time, this may not be the dog for you. Bichons don’t just like to be with their families, they need to be with their families. They adjust well to a variety of lifestyles, as long as they don’t have to spend too much time alone.

Because of their small size, Bichons are good pets for people who live in apartments. But they do have a lot of energy, and they need daily exercise, including walks and games.

Bichons are intelligent and love to learn tricks, and they’re highly trainable. When training, you need to be firm but gentle. Harsh corrections and scolding will break a Bichon’s heart. Many Bichon owners train their dogs for obedience, agility, and rally competition. Both dogs and owners enjoy this activity, and it’s a good way to bond more closely with your Bichon. Another activity that brings out the best in the Bichon is therapy work. Because they’re gentle and sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face, they make perfect therapy dogs for visits in nursing homes and hospitals.

Bichons generally get along well with other animals and people, but they will alert you when strangers come to the door. bichon frise puppies for sale florida

Highlights Of Bichon Frise Puppy for sale

Bichons can be difficult to housebreak. Crate training is recommended.
Bichons don’t like to be left alone for long periods of time.
Bichon Frise puppies are tiny and should only be handled by children under careful adult supervision.
Bichons are intelligent and cunning. To help your Bichon be the best companion possible, obedience training is recommended.
Grooming is a must! Be prepared to pay for professional grooming. Highly motivated owners can learn the technique, but it isn’t easy and requires a lot of time.
Bichons can be prone to skin problems and allergies.
Because they’re cute and small, you might be tempted to overprotect your Bichon Frise. This is a mistake and can lead to your dog becoming spoiled, shy, and fearful. Be watchful for dangerous situations, but teach your Bichon confidence by acting confident about his ability to cope with people, other animals, and situations.
To get a healthy Bichon, never buy a puppy from an irresponsible breeder, puppy mill, or pet store. Look for a reputable breeder who tests her breeding dogs to make sure they’re free of genetic diseases that they might pass onto the puppies, and that they have sound temperaments. 

History oF Bichon Fise Puppy

As with many dog breeds, the exact origin of the Bichon Frise is uncertain. Common belief holds that the Bichon descended from the Barbet, a medium-sized, woolly water dog, and that the word Bichon is derived from barbichon, which is the diminutive of the word barbet. The Barbichon family of dogs includes the Bichon Frise, the Bolgnese, the Coton de Tulear, the Havanese, and the Maltese. All originated in the Mediterranean and have a similar look and disposition. bichon frise puppies for sale in pa

The earliest records of the Bichon Frise breed date from the 14th century, when French sailors brought the dogs home from Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands. It’s thought that Bichon Frise dogs had been taken there by traders who used the Phoenician trade route, and that the Bichon Frise originally developed in Italy.

Still other historians believe that Spanish seamen brought the breed to Tenerife and, in the 14th century, Italian (rather than French) sailors brought them back to the continent. According to this version of the story, when the French invaded Italy in the 1500s, they brought many Bichon Frise dogs back to France as war booty.

Regardless of how the Bichon Frise arrived in Europe, the breed quickly became a great favorite with nobility. Bichons were popular in royal courts during the reigns of France’s King Francis I and England’s King Henry III in the 16th century. King Henry III was so fond of his Bichons that he carried them wherever he went in a special basket that he hung from his neck. Bichons became favorites of Spanish royal families and even of such painters as Goya, who included a Bichon in several of his paintings.

Interest in the Bichon Frise remained strong during the rule of Napoleon III, but then the little dog fell out of favor with royalty until the late 1800s. By that time, it was considered a common dog, sometimes owned by organ grinders or circus performers and sometimes trained to help lead the blind. Had it not been for the Bichon’s intelligence and appeal, the breed probably would have become extinct during this period.

After World War I, however, French breeders became interested in the Bichon and worked to preserve the breed. The official breed standard was adopted by the Société Centrale Canine of France on March 5, 1933, at which point the little dog had two names: Tenerife and Bichon. Later that same year, when the Bichon Frise was recognized by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (an international kennel club), the FCI president, Madame Nizet de Leemans, renamed the breed the Bichon à poil frisé (“Bichon with the curly coat”), and the moniker was anglicized to Bichon Frise. On October 18, 1934, the first Bichon Frise was admitted to the studbook of the French Kennel Club. bichon frise puppies for sale

Bichons Frises first were brought to the Untied States in 1956. The breed became eligible to enter the AKC’s Miscellaneous Class in September 1971 and was admitted to registration in the American Kennel Club Studbook in October 1972. In April 1973, the breed became eligible to show in the Non-Sporting Group at AKC dog shows. In 1975, the AKC recognized the Bichon Frise Club of America.

Size Of A Bichon Frise Puppy For Sale 

Males and females stand about 9 to 11 inches tall and weigh 7 to 12 pounds.

Personality Of A Bichon Frise Puppy 

A cheerful attitude is the outstanding trait of the Bichon’s personality. This dog loves to be loved, enjoys being the center of attention, and is adept at charming his family, neighbors, groomer, or veterinarian with his winning

personality.

The Bichon has a playful, independent streak, but that doesn’t mean he likes to be alone. In fact, this breed hates being alone and commonly suffers from separation anxiety if left alone for many hours. In such situations, Bichons may become destructive, chewing and tearing up anything in sight. Obviously the Bichon is not a breed of choice for people who are away from home for long periods of time (indeed, no dog is). bichon frise puppies for sale in california

The highly intelligent Bichon needs to be taught proper canine manners, so it’s essential to sign up for obedience training, beginning with puppy classes. Bichons are quick studies, so taking them to such classes can be very satisfying. They’re also good at tricks and some canine sports.

Temperament is affected by a number of factors, including heredity, training, and socialization. Puppies with nice temperaments are curious and playful, willing to approach people and be held by them. Choose the middle-of-the-road puppy, not the one who’s beating up his littermates or the one who’s hiding in the corner. Always meet at least one of the parents — usually the mother is the one who’s available — to ensure that they have nice temperaments that you’re comfortable with. Meeting siblings or other relatives of the parents is also helpful for evaluating what a puppy will be like when he grows up.

Like every dog, the Bichon needs early socialization — exposure to many different people, sights, sounds, and experiences — when they’re young. Socialization helps ensure that your Bichon puppy grows up to be a well-rounded dog. Enrolling him in a puppy kindergarten class is a great start. Inviting visitors over regularly, and taking him to busy parks, stores that allow dogs, and on leisurely strolls to meet neighbors will also help him polish his social skills. bichon frise puppies for sale

Health Of A Bichon Frise Puppy 

Bichons are generally healthy, but like all breeds, they’re prone to certain health conditions. Not all Bichons will get any or all of these diseases, but it’s important to be aware of them if you’re considering this breed. bichon frise for sale texas

If you’re buying a puppy, find a good breeder who will show you health clearances for both your puppy’s parents. Health clearances prove that a dog has been tested for and cleared of a particular condition. In Bichons, you should expect to see health clearances from the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) for hip dysplasia (with a score of fair or better), elbow dysplasia, hypothyroidism, and von Willebrand’s disease; from Auburn University for thrombopathia; and from the Canine Eye Registry Foundation (CERF) certifying that eyes are normal. You can confirm health clearances by checking the OFA web site (offa.org). bichon frise puppies for sale

Bladder Problems: Bladder stones and bladder infections: are not uncommon in this breed. Many factors can cause bladder stones, including excessive protein, magnesium, and phosphorus in the diet or long periods of time between urination. Bladder infections can be traced to bacterial or viral infections. If your Bichon needs to urinate frequently, has bloody urine, or seems to have difficulty urinating and loss of appetite, take him to the vet for a checkup.
Allergies: Allergies can afflict Bichons due to several different causes, including contact allergies and food allergies. Bichons are well known for being sensitive to fleabites as well. If your Bichon is scratching, licking at his paws, or rubbing his face often, suspect that he has an allergy and have him checked by your vet.
Patellar Luxation: Also known as slipped stifles, this is a common problem in small dogs. The patella is the kneecap. Luxation means dislocation of an anatomical part (as a bone at a joint). Patellar luxation is when the knee joint (often of a hind leg) slides in and out of place, causing pain. This can be crippling, although many dogs lead relatively normal lives with this condition. bichon frise for sale texas
Vaccination Sensitivity: Some Bichons are affected by this sensitivity, and many suffer even from routine vaccinations. Symptoms usually include hives, facial swelling, soreness, and lethargy. In rare instances, a vaccine-sensitive dog will develop complications or even die. Watch your Bichon carefully for a few hours after he’s been vaccinated, and call the vet if you notice anything unusual.
Hip Dysplasia: This is an inherited condition in which the thighbone doesn’t fit snugly into the hip joint. Some dogs show pain and lameness on one or both rear legs, but others don’t display outward signs of discomfort. (X-ray screening is the most certain way to diagnose the problem.) Either way, arthritis can develop as the dog ages. Dogs with hip dysplasia should not be bred — so if you’re buying a puppy, ask the breeder for proof that the parents have been tested for hip dysplasia and are free of problems.
Juvenile Cataracts: Cataracts sometimes develop in relatively young (less than six years old) Bichons. This is thought to be hereditary. When buying a Bichon Frise Puppy, be sure to ask if the breeder her breeding stock is certified by the Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF), and ask to see the certificates yourself.

Care For A Bichon Frise Puppy 

Bichons are active dogs but do well as apartment dwellers with proper exercise and play — and they live to play. Don’t leave your Bichon alone for long periods of time. To prevent destructive behavior, the wise owner leaves the Bichon in a crate when leaving the house for even a short time. bichon frise puppies for sale near me

Feeding
Recommended daily amount: 1/2 to 1.5 cups of high-quality dry food a day, divided into two meals.

NOTE: How much your adult dog eats depends on his size, age, build, metabolism, and activity level. Dogs are individuals, just like people, and they don’t all need the same amount of food. It almost goes without saying that a highly active dog will need more than a couch potato dog. The quality of dog food you buy also makes a difference — the better the dog food, the further it will go toward nourishing your dog and the less of it you’ll need to shake into your dog’s bowl. 

Keep your Bichon in good shape by measuring his food and feeding him twice a day rather than leaving food out all the time. If you’re unsure whether he’s overweight, give him the eye test and the hands-on test. bichon frise puppies for sale near me

First, look down at him. You should be able to see a waist. Then place your hands on his back, thumbs along the spine, with the fingers spread downward. You should be able to feel but not see his ribs without having to press hard. If you can’t, he needs less food and more exercise.

Bichons, like many small breeds, are prone to urolithiasis (stones in the urinary tract). Diet is an important part of treating and managing this condition; therapeutic diets and increased water intake can help prevent and control it.

Coat Color And Grooming Of A Bichon Frise Puppy 

The Bichon Frise is a double-coated breed, always white. The soft and dense undercoat and course outer coat combine to create a soft but substantial texture. The coat stands away from the body, giving it a powder-puff appearance. The most popular trim for a Bichon follows the lines of the dog’s body, leaving the coat long enough to give him the signature “poufy” look.

Bichons have a reputation for not shedding, which isn’t exactly true. All creatures with hair shed. With double-coated Bichons, however, the shed hair is caught up in the undercoat instead of falling to the floor. If this dead hair isn’t removed by brushing or combing, it can form mats and tangles, which can lead to skin problems if left unattended. bichon frise puppies near me

Grooming a Bichon is not for cowards: this is a high-maintenance breed. You’ll need to allot considerable time for grooming and bathing: you should brush him at least twice a week or more, and you’ll need to bathe him whenever he gets dirty in order to keep that white coat clean. Be sure to make sure the coat is free of mats and tangles before bathing, or the mats will tighten and become nearly impossible to remove. bichon frise puppies near me

You should check your Bichon’s ears often to make sure they’re clean. Sometimes it’s necessary to pluck out the hair that grows in the ear canal (which a groomer can do if you don’t feel comfortable with the job). If you notice a buildup of wax, redness, or a foul odor, or if you dog is scratching his ears and shaking his head, take him to the vet to be sure he doesn’t have an ear infection.

Most Bichon owners take their dogs to a professional groomer every four to six weeks for a bath, brush, haircut, nail trimming, and ear cleaning. If you want to learn how to groom your Bichon yourself, check out the many good grooming books and videos on the market for instructions.

Keeping a Bichon’s face clean and trimmed is important for health as well as looks. Mucus and discharge from the eyes tend to accumulate in the hair that grows around the eyes, and eye problems can result if you don’t clean the area regularly.

Tearstains are common, as a result of eye problems or even food allergies. Because Bichons are prone to a number of eye diseases, it’s best to have your vet check your dog if tear staining becomes a problem. Bichons are prone to blocked or small tear ducts, eyelashes that grow toward the eyeball, or eyelids that turn inward and cause the lashes to rub against the eye. Your vet will be able to determine if any of these conditions, or something else, is causing tearstains.

Brush your Bichon’s teeth at least two or three times a week to remove tartar buildup and the bacteria that lurk inside it. Daily brushing is even better if you want to prevent gum disease and bad breath. bichon frise breeders in texas

Trim nails once or twice a month if your dog doesn’t wear them down naturally to prevent painful tears and other problems. If you can hear them clicking on the floor, they’re too long. Dog toenails have blood vessels in them, and if you cut too far you can cause bleeding — and your dog may not cooperate the next time he sees the nail clippers come out. So, if you’re not experienced trimming dog nails, ask a vet or groomer for pointers.

bichon frise puppies for sale florida

Begin accustoming your Bichon to being brushed and examined when he’s a puppy. Handle his paws frequently — dogs are touchy about their feet — and look inside his mouth. Make grooming a positive experience filled with praise and rewards, and you’ll lay the groundwork for easy veterinary exams and other handling when he’s an adult. bichon frise puppies near me

As you groom, check for sores, rashes, or signs of infection such as redness, tenderness, or inflammation on the skin, in the nose, mouth, and eyes, and on the feet. Eyes should be clear, with no redness or discharge. Your careful weekly exam will help you spot potential health problems early.

Bichon Frise Puppy Children And Other Pets

Bichons are good family dogs and wonderful companions for children. They enjoy palling around with kids, joining in their games or sitting in their laps. They’re very tolerant of the noise and commotion associated with children.

As with every breed, however, you should always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party. Teach your child never to approach any dog while he’s eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog’s food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child. bichon frise puppies for adoption

The Bichon enjoys the company of other dogs, as long as he receives his fair share of attention from his owner. With proper introductions and training, the Bichon can get along with cats and other animals.

Unless you have purchased a show quality Bichon Frise puppy and desire to raise a litter of puppies, your preference as to the sex of your puppy is strictly a personal choice. On the whole both sexes make equally good pets.

Unless you want a truly cuddly companion puppy then consider a male.

It is my experience and that of the other breeders that I have contacted about this gender difference. We all agree that MALE Bichon puppies make cuddlier pets. The other breeders that I contacted all agree that the males they owned liked to lay around just being held and cuddled while the girls were more reserved and aloof.

This is in no way saying that girls don’t like to get a hug or kiss but they tend to be more moody about it and it is strictly on their terms. They can also be positively snooty if they have been slighted, where the boys just forgive for a belly rub.

The girls seemed to be disturbed by the extra heat and couldn’t get comfortable after a short while and like to get their attention with their feet on the ground.

Monty, on the other hand is the cuddliest dog I have ever met. He just thinks it’s his due and has quite an attitude about it. The girls like to hug and cuddle for a minute but they are more independent that the boys. I guess it is because girl puppies become future mom’s and the Monty’s of the world only have to be cute and cuddly, irresponsible bits of attitude.

Life wouldn’t be the same without my white “lap-mop”, Monty.

Mysti is a quiet doll; she is gentle, quiet and aloof. Sassy Rose is always outgoing and the champ of happiness. Katie is ever the quiet lady while Lacy and Suzie are still happy-go-lucky, noisy, bouncy young girls. Tess is the ever so sweet Grandmother. Still, none of my girls want to sit and just quietly cuddle on your lap like my Monty.

Bugsy and Monty are both great listeners and wonderful lap companions. They will quietly lie there for as long as they can. Just soaking up the attention for the time when you have to move.

Monty will always be our personality plus with a cuddle. Now that he has retired he is still the baby cuddle bunny like he were a tiny baby. Bugsy and Duke are now settling into adult hood with extra time to listen to my confidences and a great snuggle.

It’s impossible for us to spend 100% of our time at home with our pet Bichon Frise, despite wanting to do so. It also isn’t possible to take them along wherever we go, including work and school, places where the whole day is usually spent. Therefore, it’s essential to ask, “how long can Bichon Frise be left alone?” Bichon Frises are definitely social dogs, but you might be surprised at the amount of time they can handle being on their own.

 

So, How Long Can A Bichon Frise Be Left Alone For?

Adult Bichon Frises (1-year-old+) can be comfortable on their own for 6-8 hours. If your Bichon Frise suffers from anxiety disorders, particularly Bichon Frise separation anxiety, he shouldn’t be on his own for longer than 5 hours prior to you giving him extensive training so he can cope for 6-8 hours.

If your adult Bichon Frise can remain at home on his own and enjoy it, you don’t need to worry when leaving him home alone. However, if he’s not an adult and/or faces anxiety problems, you need to take specific steps to train him to cope prior to leaving him home alone.

Of all the dogs I have owned, the most social are Bichon Frise, making it hard to assess how they will cope when left at home on their own for any length of time.

The age of your Bichon Frise and his state of health are the two main factors that will help you make this decision because it’s not black and white. Depending on his age, you’ll have to consider not leaving him on his own for long periods. A quick trip to the post office or store is generally fine but spending all day at work could cause problems in the initial stages.

This table will help you to make decisions regarding how long you can safely leave your Bichon Frise at home on his own, based on how old he is and assuming he doesn’t have any issues with anxiety.

Bichon Frise’s AgeMaximum Time Alone
8-10 weeksI hour
2-3 months2 hours
6-12 months4 hours
12-18+ months6 to 8 hours

When your Bichon Frise puppy is still very young, it’s vital that you never leave him on his own for more than an hour as a maximum. At this age, he hasn’t yet learned how to control his bladder. Lack of potty training can mean little messes if you don’t get him to his toilet spot in time. However, there may also be other problems manoeuvring this world which is all very new to him and it’s up to you to help him learn everything he needs to know.

After your Bichon Frise moves past those first few weeks and becomes 2 months old, you can trial leaving him alone for two hours. This should normally be plenty of time before he has the urge to visit the bathroom, but will also give him time to explore his surroundings and gain a little independence.

Once your Bichon Frise approaches adulthood, you may not have to deliberately leave him alone as he’ll slowly be gaining some independence. Four hours is the ideal number of hours to let him be alone and, if he has a good temperament and is well potty-trained, you can even consider stretching this out a little more.

 

Once your Bichon Frise is a complete adult in every way, you should be able to leave him alone to enjoy his own company for 6-8 hours without any concerns. He’ll be very self-aware regarding when and where he should make use of the bathroom. He’ll also feel happy and independent whenever he’s left alone.

Regardless of how happy and content he may appear, even after the 8-hour point, never leave him alone for over eight hours. Even if your Bichon Frise doesn’t show any symptoms of bladder issues or separation anxiety, he’s in need of your guidance and social contact. Unless you have given him an exceptional amount of training, NEVER leave him alone for more than the stipulated eight hours.

Bichon Frises are fairly intelligent. This makes training them relatively easy as long as the right methods are used and there is some consistency. When it comes to potty training, the dogs are intuitively great at personal grooming and hate messes which is something you could take advantage of for more effective training.

Bichons are extremely easy to please. All it takes to make them happy is good food, lots of hugs and plenty of positive verbal affirmation. You could very easily use these tools to your advantage while training the little one. Just give them a “good boy” here or a treat there every time they finish going potty in the right place.

Don’t be too harsh when training a Bichon when and where to go potty. These dogs have very sensitive emotions and do not react well to aggressiveness. Shouting at them or punishing them will only set you back when it comes to training.

Instead, if they start to regress or get stubborn, just exercise patience, and assert your dominance without being too harsh. This will eventually wear them down and they will start to do things the right way especially if the treats are still on offer.

Their natural intuition and intelligence also extends to their love for routine. They work well with schedules which definitely makes potty training easier. Just make sure to establish a strict routine and actually stick to it and the dog will too.

This is what makes training tools like the BLUETREE Potty Training Dog Doorbell very effective when housebreaking a Bichon. The dog will eventually learn the routine and even remind you using the bells when they need to go.

 

The Bichon Frise is always a joy to be around… friendly, sociable, loyal, and a happy dog altogether, this small size breed is an ideal apartment dweller who loves the company of both small children and elderly folks. While their tiny physique makes them even more adorable, they often display signs of temperament disorders, indicating that something is not right. As a Bichon Frise owner, you should know that obsessive barking and destructive chewing are not part of their innate personality and need to be addressed accordingly. Let’s find out which of the symptoms should alert you that something may be wrong and learn how you can avoid them.

The Bichon Frise is a quiet breed, so if he is barking uncontrollably you should know there is an underlying problem that you need to deal with. When you have a barking Bichon, the worst things that you can do is overwhelm him with excessive cuddling or harsh punishments. Both of these reactions will only make things worse for you and your little furry friend. Due to their affectionate, sensitive, and gentle nature as well as their small appearance, it’s easy to understand why most owners baby their fluffy little breed each time they start barking or acting in an inappropriate manner. But just as spoiling or indulging your children each time they misbehave can have unpleasant consequences for the future, your Bichon Frise will continue to bark until they get their way. The thing is, you induce your dog’s behavior, but you can also stop it.

Separation anxiety is also common in Bichons. More than most other breeds, the Bichon Frise needs a great deal of companionship and does not like being left alone for more than a few hours. If you are a person who travels a lot then this is not the right breed for you, since you’re only setting them up for obsessive behavioral reactions such as chewing, barking and crying. Other triggers could include moving to a new place, cases of previous abuse and a defensive behavior due to their petite structure. Bichons tend to bark more in order to get their master’s attention, warning anyone from taking their food and assuming an aggressive posture to avoid possible intruders. Although they do have an independent streak, the Bichon Frise is rarely dominant nor aggressive in nature. Most of their negative temperaments are generally human-induced, which is why controlling your dog’s behavior and understanding the reasons behind it will save you plenty of headaches along the way.

When you first set eyes on a Bichon Frise, you might think, “that’s a cuddly looking dog,” but with some dogs, it doesn’t always work out that way. With Bichons, it does: These charming, friendly and intelligent companions are soft and sweet, naturally social and get along with the whole family—even other pets. Easily trained and eager to please, they have a gentle and affectionate manner. Just don’t forget to give them attention—and lots of it. They crave human companionship and can suffer emotionally if neglected.
A lapful of charm in a cotton-ball cloud of curly white hair, the Bichon Frise is one of the sweetest and most affectionate of dog breeds. He loves to be the center of attention, which isn’t surprising given that he used to be adored by royalty and performed tricks to the roars of the circus crowds. His dark eyes sparkle with mischief, but like his cousins the Havanese, the Maltese, and the Coton de Tulear, he pretty much uses his powers for good. Letting his have the softest bed and just one little bite of your dinner makes you both happy. But don’t expect a Bichon to be “perfect” from birth – the Bichon is not a wind-up toy: he can be a challenge to housetrain and needs to learn his place in the family.
The fact that Bichons were born to cuddle doesn’t mean they don’t need exercise and training; they do. Suggesting that you never indulge your Bichon is pointless, but make sure that your training on the important matters – such as nipping, snapping and barking – is gentle and consistent. Don’t turn your bold, happy dog into a yappy tyrant.
While the Bichon can be a wonderful family pet, this may not be the right breed for families with young children or rambunctious older ones, especially if you have one of the smaller Bichons. They can easily be injured if play is too rough, or even snap at a child if they’re frightened.
You may have heard that the Bichon’s non-shedding coats make him a “non-allergenic” breed, but that’s not true. It’s a dog’s dander – flakes of skin – that triggers allergic reactions, not the coat. The non-shedding coat means less dander in the environment and sometimes fewer allergic reactions. But Bichons still produce dander, and can still cause an allergic reactions. Any breeder who tells you their dogs are “non-allergenic” should be avoided

Life doesn’t always go according to plan and there will be times when you have zero choice but to leave your Bichon Frise home alone for over eight hours. This creates a challenge for both you and your dog to face. The positive news is that Bichon Frise are listed as being among the wisest and fastest learning dogs in the world. Even if he must be alone for over eight hours, he’ll cope because of the extra training you have given him. Taking care of a puppy while working takes lots of planning.

When you teach your Bichon Frise to stay home on his own for a longer period (a maximum of 10 hours), there are two vital considerations to bear in mind:

Does he have access to everything he needs?

Here are a few simple suggestions he should have:

A comfortable bed.
Plenty of water and food (depending on the weather).
Make sure he has favourite toys to keep him amused.
Plenty of space to walk around.
Access to his toilet by using a pee pad or going out through the dog flap and using his outdoors bathroom.
Leave some lights on so he can see.
Play background or soothing music in a low volume.
When you have to leave your Bichon Frise at home alone for any length of time (to an absolute maximum of 10 hours), you can follow these guidelines.

If your Bichon Frise suffers from separation anxiety, you have more challenges to cope with when you ask the big question – “Can Bichon Frise Be Left Alone During The Day?”

Prices for Bichon Frise pups range from $550 to $2500 with a median of around $900.

The key determinants of price are the parental history and the breeder reputation.

Pups of champion Bichon Frises can fetch a premium of up to $1500 and more. Breeder reputation, likewise, could add a few hundred dollars to the price.

Similarly, a Bichon Frise from a shelter will save you some money. The adage, “you get what you pay for”, is probably applicable in this context.

Are Bichons Expensive?

Though they are not the most expensive dog breeds on the market, Bichons are pretty pricey. If you buy yours from a reputable breeder at a young puppy age, you could spend as much as $700 and upwards.

The price goes up significantly if you want a purebred from a supreme and competitive bloodline.

One of the main reasons why these dogs are so expensive is because of the hype surrounding their aesthetics. They are considered accessory breeds alongside other popular options like chihuahuas and yorkies. The hype in turn creates demand for the relatively rare breed which is why they can be so incredibly expensive.

In addition to being visually appealing, Bichon Frises are popular for their hypoallergenic coats. This is because they do not shed a lot or have a lot of dander. So if you have dog allergies and would like one anyways this is definitely a breed worth looking into.

Owning a Bichon Frise obviously comes at an astronomical cost. However, the numerous perks of owning one definitely make them a worthy purchase. You just have to take the time to understand what you are getting into and be ready to invest the time and effort to train your doggy to be the perfect pet.

While the initial purchase price is pretty steep, Bichons are relatively low maintenance. They do not shed a lot and so you only have to invest in grooming maybe once every month or two. They are also generally very healthy dogs who live pretty long, which reduces your vet costs by a whole lot.

If you do not want to spend thousands of dollars for the breed, there are ways you could get a Bichon for cheap.

Adoption a Bichon Frise from a rescue is your best option whether it is directly from a previous home or through a shelter. There is not always much of a guarantee of success in these cases but it is definitely worth checking out if you want the dog on a budget.

 

 

Bichons are a relatively healthy breed which is not common for small breed dogs. However, they do suffer from a variety of conditions. These include:

Skeletal Problems
The most common ones here are patella luxation and hip disease. Good nutrition could help prevent or at least reduce the severity of these conditions. An option is to provide your Bichon nutrition to nurse their hip and joint problems with specialized dog food like the AvoDerm Natural Advanced Joint Health Dry Dog Food.

Adding in some dog supplements like the Doggie Dailies Glucosamine Soft Chews would be helpful as well. These food products stand out with their special bone and joint health formulas that contain elevated amounts of ingredients like glucosamine and chondroitin.

Weight Issues And Metabolic Conditions
These include obesity and diabetes often due to overeating and consumption of high-fat diets. It gets worse with age as they get less active. They may also suffer from being underweight and from conditions like hypoglycemia often associated with physical and psychological conditions that reduce appetite.

Allergies
Despite being hypoallergenic, Bichons suffer from several allergies of their own including allergies to fleas, ticks, pollen, dust, some fabrics, and chemicals in grooming products.

Genetic Conditions
These are serious and often life-threatening conditions and include heart malformations and portosystemic shunts. Fortunately, they are not very common and if caught early enough can usually be corrected surgically.

Despite all these health issues, Bichons live for 12 to 15 years which is a lot for a dog. The conditions are also rarely deadly. In fact, Bichons die from things like cancer and general old age. Trauma is also implicated as a common cause of death but it can easily be avoided with proper training and vigilance when letting the pooch out.

Bichons may get a bad reputation for being too feisty but they are generally very good pets to have around in the house. To give you a better idea of what you have to look forward to, here are some major pros and a few cons you will have to live with having them in your home.

Pros
Friendly And Affectionate
Bichons are super social and will make friends with anyone or any other pet that they feel comfortable with. You just have to take time to socialize them. This affectionate nature makes them ideal family pets as you know they will love you as much as you love them.

Easy To Train
Bichons may be stubborn but they are intelligent and very easy to bribe with treats. So training should not be too much trouble. In fact with consistency and the right techniques you should have the pooch housebroken in no time.

Hypoallergenic
This makes them ideal for any owners, family members or guests who may be allergic dog fur or dander as the breed does not shed a lot.

Cons
Bark A Lot
Bichons bark a lot and this can be quite annoying for both you and your neighbors. They do this for a myriad of reasons including boredom, anxiety and even pain. The best way to deal with this is through training as well as identifying and mitigating the original problem.

Can Get Aggressive
Bichon Frises can be aggressive especially when they feel threatened. This is why a number of them end up abandoned at shelters. Fortunately, this is not a part of their nature and is often a reaction. So if you remove the trigger and teach them how to adapt you should have no problems.

Bichons are known for being very needy. The little white furball will literally follow you around the house and insist on being as close to you as possible. They do not like to be separated for whatever reason or whatever time period and will often throw a fit if they feel they are not getting the attention they so desperately crave.

To understand the reason for this behavior, you have to appreciate their highly affectionate temperament that these dogs tend to have. Bichons love to cuddle and play and hang out with their owners. It is how they show love and how they receive it. So if they follow you around everywhere and seem to want more attention than is reasonable it is because they are trying to bond with you. A little accommodation here will go a long way.

They are also not very independent. While Bichon Frises can be left alone, they hate it and will often sulk and whine all day long until you come back. Again, this is more about emotional attachment than it is about their inability to take care of themselves. For this, you just have to train them and be patient. Eventually, they will learn the need to let you go because they will understand that you always come back.

Finally, Bichon Frises tend to be needy as a result of their psychological predisposition to anxiety issues. They are very timid and are therefore easily traumatized by anything from loud noises to harsh treatment. They are also vulnerable to separation anxiety after early removal from their litters. In these cases, a calming supplement like hemp, melatonin or essential oils plus a little bit of patience will do the trick.

Before getting a new puppy, you’ll need a new puppy checklist of things to buy for a new puppy, and you will need to have them before you bring him home.So you need to get organized, gather your new puppy supplies, puppy proof your home and decide what your house rules will be.

It’s important to do this BEFORE your new pup arrives, so that the transition will be smooth. You won’t want to run to the store at the last minute for puppy supplies that you forgot to get.

The new puppy checklist isn’t long, and having these things on hand when your new kid arrives, will help him to be comfortable and it will make your life a lot easier.

Items for Your New Puppy

While this puppy shopping list will include the absolute necessities, you may think of other items to add to your new puppy checklist:

Puppy Food – Find out what food your puppy has been eating at the breeder’s or the rescue shelter, and buy a bag of the same kind of food. You can switch his food later to another brand or type of high quality puppy kibble, but you should start him on the dog food that he’s been eating. Switching foods should be done gradually, not all at once.
2 Puppy Bowls – You’ll need a bowl for food and a bowl for water. They don’t have to be fancy, but they should belong just to your puppy. Make sure that your dog’s bowls are not tippy. While you’re at it, consider buying a mat to go under your dog’s bowls. Dogs can get pretty sloppy when eating and drinking, and a mat will help keep your flooring nice.
Safe Puppy Chew Toys – You only need to have one or two toys for your new puppy. Make sure that you have something that he is allowed to chew on—and that is safe for him
Puppy Collar and Leash – Purchase a soft nylon or cotton collar. You’ll need to work on getting your puppy used to wearing a collar right away. Puppies can wander away, and you definitely don’t want to lose her! Make sure you get the right size. You’ll have to measure her neck to do this. In addition, you should have a leash, so that you can keep your new puppy safe when outdoors with you. I like a harness for taking walks, as this stops the pulling that most puppies are prone to do.
Crate for Small Dogs – Your new puppy needs a place to sleep and a place to feel safe. Make sure your puppy has a nice safe place to sleep because your first night together can be long and frustrating. His new crate doesn’t have to be fancy, but you need to have this before your puppy arrives. Trying to do without it, will result in accidents on your carpet and floor—and a lot of frustration!
Dog Brush and Comb – Bichon Frise puppies need to be groomed daily, even though they are still puppies. At the least, you’ll need a brush and comb. A de-matting tool is helpful, as well.
Washable Dog Blanket – This will help your puppy feel comfortable and loved. As she gets older, she will still love to snuggle on her warm, soft blankie!
Cardboard Box Lined with Newspaper – you can use this to transport your puppy home in the car. It’s the safest way to have him travel, and he should be comfortable in the box, as well.
Puppy Treats – You will want to have some little treats on hand so that when you begin to work with your puppy, you can reward her.
Be Prepared for Your New Puppy
Bringing home a new puppy is not a major undertaking. But it is important that you get organized and get your puppy supplies before you actually go to get your new puppy.

Doing so, will help you be ready, and your puppy’s acclimation to his new home will be sooo much easier if you are prepared!

One of the best things that you can do to be prepared is to familiarize yourself with Doggie Dan and his fool-safe puppy and dog training methods.

Dan will show you how to work with even the most stubborn or aggressive dogs. And his methods are gentle and proven.
