Bichon Frise: Crate Training

The crate is your Bichon Frise’s special private place. When your pet goes into his/her crate it is seeking a personal den-like space where he feels safe and can relax and should be left undisturbed. Your Bichon Frise’s crate should be large enough for your dog to stand up, turn around and lie down in. Make sure though it isn’t too large where he can go potty in one end away from where he lies down.

When you first bring your Bichon Frise home and he/she is out of its crate you want to keep an eye on it. Create barriers or use gates at entrances or exits to the room where you and your pet are if you are busy doing other things.
If possible do not leave your Bichon Frise in a crate all day long. Even though your pet may like its “little den” being locked up in one all day is sure to drive him/her crazy. If you work all day long find someone to come in and take your dog out for a lunch break or a long afternoon walk.

If you have to leave your Bichon Frise in the crate for extended periods of time, establish a regular routine. Such as…20 minutes after feeding when your dog needs to go… take your dog outside to potty before returning him/her to its crate.

Better yet find a space preferably a room without rugs for your Bichon. Place the crate or bed at one end of the room and housebreaking pee pads at the other end. Be sure to place plenty of toys in the center of the room to keep your pet occupied. Remember your Bichon Frise is a lively, intelligent loving little dog and he/she depends on you to keep him healthy, happy and safe!

Introduce your Bichon Frise to a regular routine as soon as possible. This is true for walks and especially outdoor potty trips. Return to a familiar spot and offer praise and treats to encourage good potty behavior. Have Fun!
