About the Breed
The Bichon Frise is of Mediterranean ancestry. These lively and affectionate dogs found their way from the Mediterranean area to the Canary Islands, specifically to the Island of Tenerife as early as the 1300s. They are believed to have been the traveling companions of Spanish sailors, who may have even used them as items of barter. Known as one of the gentlest and sweetest breeds, these affectionate lap dogs who were once fit for royal entertainment, love to be the center of attention. They are happy-go-lucky, loving companion pets.
Appearance and Grooming
The Bichon’s coat is non-shedding, however, that doesn’t make this breed hypoallergenic. The non-shedding coat means there is less dander in the environment and sometimes fewer allergic reactions. But Bichons still produce dander, and can still cause allergic reactions. They are small, sturdy dogs with slightly rounded heads. The muzzle is somewhat pointed and has a slightly pronounced stop. The round eyes are black or dark brown. The ears are dropped and covered in long hair. Although they are predominantly white dogs, this breed also comes in colors of cream, gray or apricot. This dog should be regularly groomed every 4 to 6 to weeks to keep its coat soft and clean.
These self-assured and independent little balls of fur are about love and affection. They are sociable by nature and thrive in the company of people and other pets. Though not a barker or yappy by nature, if these dogs are not socialized early on they can exhibit signs of small dog syndrome which can lead to high levels of anxiety.
Bichons love to be with people most of all, and should not be left on their own for more than 4 hours each day.
Family and Companionship
The Bichon can be a wonderful addition to the family, though this may not be the right breed for families with young children or rambunctious older ones. These pups can easily be injured if play is too rough or even snap at a child if they're frightened. Because they love to be in the presence of company these dogs will do especially well in an environment where someone is always around.
They may be small, but these dogs are incredibly active. They need daily walks and play. Please do not substitute all play as ample exercise as their primal instincts still require them to walk. They will do well in a fenced in yard or larger play area where they can freely romp around.
Training and Socialization
The Bichon is an intelligent dog and is generally obedient and easy to train. Because of their ancestral history and entertaining for royalty, these playful pups love to learn tricks. While tricks are great, it is recommended that obedience training should come first in order to build a bond while establishing rules and structure. Since these dogs in general, are considered lap dogs, they tend to be clingier than many other breeds. Early socialization will ensure a confident and healthy, happy puppy.

My son actually bought my Bichon for me. I have cancer and he thought I was depressed and needed a puppy. I live in Michigan. He was 8 weeks old, Bichon Frise. He had all his shots, was well taken care of. I received 3 or 4 calls checking on him after we brought him home. He is just adorable, we were very impressed with Premier Pups and I would purchase again.

Roy, now milo, has been a great dog. He is lovely and sweet but he also bites a lot and barks. But maybe it’s because he’s teething. He’s super playful and energetic. He can fall asleep anywhere anytime and we just love him sooo much. He came into our lives at just the right time!

Achilles came to us with just 2 months and he was only about 2lbs. He was the best thing to happen to our family. He is so playful and is just a bundle of joy with a lot of personality. Premier pups did a great job with everything and were always in contact with us during the first few weeks of us having him to make sure that everything was going well. They were great and I am happy that I was able to find them and get Achilles from them. If I ever want to get another puppy I will probably get one form them again and will be sure to recommend them to any family or friends. Thanks!
