Bichon Frise: Bichon Frises and Children

Bichon Frises are fond of children and get along well with them if they are treated with love and respect. Since the Bichon is a small and gentle dog you want to make sure that children understand that this cute cuddly looking little dog may look like a stuffed animal but is actually REAL and has to be treated carefully like any living thing.

If you are thinking about bringing a Bichon Frise into your family give some consideration to the age and nature of your child or children . To ensure the best chances for a successful experience you want a good fit between your child and dog. Bichon Frises are affectionate,intelligent little companion dogs so they could be a perfect match for the right child. They are playful and energetic and need a moderate amount of exercise, such as walking. They may not be the best choice for a household full of high energy toddlers or rambunctious adolescents.

If you’re introducing a Bichon Frise into a household with real young children keep a close eye on their interaction with the dog. Teach children how to handle and play with the dog in a gentle manner that won’t alarm or hurt him. If you cant try to find a dog who has been raised around kids and is known to get along well with children. An adult dog who has lost some of that excessive puppy energy may be a better choice for a younger child too.


Make sure your Bichon Frise is treated with care and respect by children and that they don’t tease or torment their pet. If your child is old enough and interested in learning some basic commands and tricks that will strengthen his/her relationship with the dog and boost your child’s confidence too.

Involve children in care and responsibility for your pet. You can make a chart for daily care that includes providing fresh water, feeding, walking and playing. Make sure all children understand that giving their Bichon Frise ‘people food’ is dangerous since dogs are allergic to many things we eat and can make their pet sick or worse.

We all remember that Lassie was Timmy’s best friend. Having a pet can be an amazing experience for a child besides teaching responsibility and respect for life where else can you find such a loyal and faithful companion who is always so happy just to see you?
