Bichon Frise

Bichon Frise

Bichon Frise has existed for over 700 years, as descendants of Poodles and Barbet water spaniels. Spanish sailors introduced this breed throughout the world, and in the 16th century it became a favorite at the French court. In the 19th century, the Bichon Frise was often seen as a circus performer..

It is a popular therapy dog today due to its quick intelligence, eagerness to be with people, and trainability.

The Bichon Frise has the appearance of a white wool tot with black buttons for eyes and nose. It has long ears that hang down around its face. The Bichon Frise is a small dog weighing between 3.5 and 6 kg and standing between 22 and 30 cm tall..

When raised in a safe social environment, the Bichon Frise is a cheerful, bright, and friendly dog. Some Bichons dislike sudden touch, so it is not always ideal for a family with small children. They learn tricks and obedience routines quickly and are very active both indoors and outdoors. The Bichon Frise is a well-liked companion and show dog. These small dogs yearn for human companionship and should not be left alone for extended periods of time.

Care of Bichon Frise

The double coat, which is usually white, is its most distinguishing feature. This glossy coat necessitates thorough maintenance and cleaning. Bichon Frises are prone to ear infections and require routine ear cleaning.

Brushing: This dog needs to be brushed frequently due to his lengthy hair. Your Bichon Frise will remain in excellent condition with routine brushing. To eliminate dead hair and prevent the coat from tangling, brushing is required every day. Utilize the FURminator brush to remove some of the dog's typical undercoat without harming the coat. Use a massage brush to smooth out the skin at the base of the fur; your Bichon Frise will appreciate it and it will help spread the sebum.

If brushing your Bichon Frise becomes too time-consuming, you can give it a haircut and keep the fur short in what is called "a puppy haircut". Buy a quality trimmer like the Moser 1245 45W, which you can use with many types of blades that take seconds to change, and can handle trimming your Bichon Frise since they need a trim every 2 to 6 weeks.

Baths: Your Bichon Frise requires regular monthly baths to keep the clean white coat in good condition. Biogance White Coat Dog Shampoo has natural color-activating ingredients that deep clean the coat while keeping the coat white.

After a bath, it's critical that your Bichon Frise's coat is entirely dry. If your Bichon is wary of hair dryers, use a hair dryer that is designed specifically for animals and does not produce noise.

Your Bichon Frise can begin losing teeth at the age of seven, but you can play an important role in preventing this from happening. Proden Plaque Off can help prevent tartar and plaque buildup on its teeth, improve gum health, and eliminate bad breath..
