    Articledog breed guidesSunday 27 October 2013

    Bichon Frise dogs are a popular choice in Britain and other countries. With a lifespan of about 15 to 20 years, a Bichon is a long term commitment.

    This small dog is known to be a good companion, so to learn more about Bichon Frises, see the following.


    The Bichon Frise dog breed originates from the 13th century and was favoured by the French Royal Family. Today, these dogs are known to be gentle, intelligent and hardy creatures, ideal for companionship or showing.

    These dogs are widely chosen for their lively and animated personalities. This breed loves to be part of the family and enjoys playing, without being too much to take. Human interaction is something that Bichons really value. 

    These dogs are highly sociable and get on famously with children and other pets. However, they also make for great guard dogs and bark to let their family know of visitors.

    A Bichon Frise needs plenty of grooming. In fact, their coats need brushing every day! It is also recommended that these dogs are groomed professionally once a month. Dental care is another area that needs particular focus. This breed is prone to skin issues, allergies and ear infections. 

    These dogs can suffer separation anxiety if they feel like they have not spent enough time with their owners. They love to play and exercise, so as long as a Bichon Frise is given the opportunity to do this, they can live in most types of home.
