Bichon Frise: Early Potty Training Is Recommended

Sep 16, 2008
The Bichon Frise needs to be given proper Bichon Frise training to ensure that he does not become a problem pet. If Bichon Frise potty training is not properly given, it can lead to developing problems such as becoming too aggressive and even taking to biting people and things. Though he is easy to housebreak, there is yet a popular misconception that the Bichon Frise is hard to housebreak. Yet, with patience and perseverance there should not be any difficulty in getting him to potty in the proper spot.

Nevertheless, despite being very intelligent, the Bichon Frise may not always co-operate when being potty trained though it is not impossible to housebreak him, provided you plan ahead and use the right training method. It is thus necessary to use love and affection and a gentle tone of voice when imparting Bichon Frise potty training because these will ensure the desired results as opposed to being negative and punitive which will only lead to further problems with your Bichon Frise.

The Bichon Frise may sometimes prove to be a bit difficult to potty train, though after you show some patience and also understand the basic principles of Bichon Frise potty training, you should not find it hard to get him to do as he is told. Once you use the right approach and begin Bichon Frise training as early as possible, Bichon Frise potty training can prove to be quite simple as well as effortless, and soon your pet will have learned his first and most important lesson in remaining clean.

In addition, it is not right for you to scold your dog or punish him if accidents happen, because dogs are naturally very clean and will generally follow your instructions provided they are given in a calm and gentle voice, and they are also rewarded when they do the right things. Also, your Bichon Frise potty training efforts will only begin to show positive results after your puppy has attained the age of six months, which is when they start to remember their habits, and will thus be able to associate leaving their crate with having to eliminate.

There is no denying the fact that Bichon Frise potty training is something that will require you to be patient and it will also take time before your Bichon Frise training methods yield results. Along the way there are bound to be accidents, which you should take in your stride and persevere with compassion rather than anger, and cajole your Bichon Frise rather than punish him.

Next, you should pick a spot for your Bichon Frise where he should eliminate and then take him there each time you feel he wants to potty as it will teach him where to go when he gets the urge to relieve himself.

Also, the better Bichon Frise potty training methods are those in which he is not rewarded with food, rather he should be rewarded emotionally followed by some patting as well as rub down. The point is that if you reward him with a treat it is just going to be another trigger for him to want to potty once more.

In any case you need to, when such accidents take place, note down the circumstances and try and rectify the reasons behind such accidents.
