This cotton fluff ball is so plush and perky you can't help but smile when it's around. Bichon Frise (pronounced BEE-shawn FREE-say) translates to “curly lap dog". Bichons are known for their soft and velvety-white hypoallergenic coat. In the past, Bichons were pampered pets for the French rich and elite. This pup has a big personality, loves to be the centre of attention and is well suited for the spotlight. Bichons thrive as show dogs where they get to show off their ability to learn tricks, and will also entertain your family at home. Fluffy-faced and button-nosed, Bichons are playful, intelligent and very social. You won't have to worry about it around kids or other dogs, and it will become BFFs with the housekeeper and mailman. It’s very important to teach your puppy “potty”, as housetraining can be very difficult. Because of their size, Bichons make good pets for apartments, but that doesn't mean it likes to be left alone. In fact, this breed often suffers from separation anxiety. You'll love your Bichon so much you won't want to leave it, and would rather take it everywhere it will fit. Cheerful and sometimes mischievous, this compact cutie will bring sunshine to the cloudiest day.
Daily kibble serving
Since Bichons are only moderately active, they don't require a ton of food to fill them up. The recommended daily amount is 1/2 to 1.5 cups of kibble per day. Bichons thrive on a protein-based diet that contains lots of healthy fats. Food specially made for small dogs is easier for them to consume. It's a good idea to avoid this by breaking up meal time into multiple events. If you leave a bowl of grub out all day, it will likely get devoured in one sitting. It’s important your Bichon doesn’t overeat! Bichons can be prone to sensitive digestion and food allergies. If you notice your pup shying away from food, talk to your veterinarian to find a solution.
