Bichon Frise: Potty Training

To ensure that your Bichon Frise becomes a welcome member of the family good housebreaking training is crucial. Bichons are very smart dogs but can sometimes be a little difficult to housebreak so be patient through this process. The earlier you start good lifetime habits the better. It will be well worth your time.

Ideally puppies should be walked on a leash frequently at regular intervals until they are able to reliably control their bladder. For puppies under 12 weeks old take them out at least 6 times a day or every 2-4 hours. Provide frequent opportunity to eliminate in an appropriate place, a familiar spot is recommended then reward this behavior immediately.

The best method of house breaking is to take your puppy out within several minutes after meals, naps and playing. These are predictable times when bowel and bladder are most full. Immediately praise your puppy using an upbeat, light tone of voice to encourage your pup to associate praise with proper potty training.

House breaking your Bichon Frise may require a lot of time and patience to make the process become a habit. Some people recommend using crate training to be more effective.
