Key Facts About Bichon Frise Dogs

Jul 11, 2008
There is no doubt that Bichon Frise dogs are incredible adorable and it can take only one second to completely fall head over heals in love with that particular breed of dog. But before you bring home a Bichon Frise, it is important to know exactly what type of dog that you are dealing with, as not every dog is alike in their personality and what you can expect out of them.

It is important, as with any breed of dog, to make sure that you and that little puppy can leave together in harmony. So, before making that big decision to expand the size of your family, make sure that the lifestyle of the Bichon Frise and your lifestyle match up and you will have many years of happiness ahead of you. Make the wrong decision and you will either have to live with your regrets or find the dog a new home, which can be hard.

A lot of problems that people have when trying to pick a breed that is suitable for them are that they may live in the city or somewhere where there is not a lot of yard space or they may live in a tiny apartment. But luckily for them, Bichon Frise dogs do not require a lot of exercise and will do well in those locations or with people like the elderly who cannot get out that often.

Also, the Bichon Frise make excellent watchdogs, but not attack dogs as they will alert you to the presence of a stranger but they generally will not attack due to their lack of aggressiveness. Also, even if you currently do not have any other pets at home, you may someday get the itch to adopt again and there will be no need to worry as the Bichon Frise is very well behaved around other pets.

Now while there are a lot of wonderful qualities in Bichon Frise dogs, there are also a lot of things that you may not like so much and that really need thought about before bringing one home. This breed to notorious for having problems with housebreaking so this could mean extra messes for a while.

This means a lot of bonding time spent brushing and clipping in order to maintain the look of the Bichon Frise that we all know and love.

And unlike some dogs who seem to catch onto housebreaking with ease, the Bichon Frise need to take that little bit of extra time so patience is required. There may also be extra vet visits with this breed, as they are known for suffering from various skin conditions.

Now, if that was not enough to scare you away from the Bichon Frise, then this may very well be the dog for you.
