Bichon Frise: Would You Like to Parent a Bichon Frise?

by Jonne Hubin


 
Let's face it -- Bichon Frises are adorable, incredibly appealing, white fluffy show-stoppers with a delightful, almost human-like personality!  They love to play, and make loyal companions, having a strong desire to interact with their caretakers.  It sounds like a dog for everyone -- right?  Not really.
 
Bichon Frises are not the pet for parents who do not have a lot of time to devote to their dog, who do not have patience to clean up varying numbers of "accidents" during training, and who want a trouble-free bill of health.  These animals need and thrive on loving attention whether it's throwing a ball, playing with them and their toys, including them on your errands,  giving them massages, or talking with them. That means having time available for them.
They are not usually quickly housebroken. A few evidently never are able to achieve this.
 
So the parent of a Bichon Frise should not expect perfection in toilet training, but should encourage the dog whenever possible.  Health problems can be more prevalent in this breed, especially  joint, digestive, and skin issues.  Thus it becomes important to make sure their diet is very nourishing and  illnesses are promptly attended to.
 
In view of the above, what describes a prospective parent of a Bichon Frise?  First and most important, being loving and keyed into meeting the emotional and physical needs of the dog. And secondly, having patience and understanding when the dog makes mistakes, and not demanding or expecting perfection in him or her: If you show a relaxed, positive, and sensitive approach to parenting. Your efforts will be amply rewarded!
