Bichon Frise Information

The striking powder-puff appearance of the bichon derives from its double coat, with a soft dense undercoat and coarser, curly outer coat, causing the coat to stand off the body and even spring back when patted. It is a merry, agile breed, longer than it is tall, with an effortless trot. Its looks, combined with its fitness, enabled it to earn its living as a street performer. Its soft, inquisitive expression enabled it to worm its way into many hearts and laps.

Bichons love to show off, and they respond well to positive training but not harsh tactics. The Bichon is a naturally gentle, playful dog. Attending an obedience class will benefit both pet and owner. He loves activity and requires regular exercise. Highly intelligent and trainable, Bichons delight in entertaining their owners. Bichons also love to run - and they are fast! Your first ‘Bichon blitz’ will amaze you. If you have a yard, make sure it’s securely fenced and work hard on teaching your dog to listen and come when called.
