Bichon Frise Breed overview
The Bichon Frise, or widely known as Bichon, is a small dog famous for fluffy, curly white coat. They were very popular in France as a companion and performing dogs.
Bichons have a fluffy white coat which means that you have to groom it frequently. On the other hand, it rarely sheds. Their soft undercoats blend in with the coarse overcoat, which gives them voluminous texture.
They require lots of exercise in order to stay healthy and happy. You should walk them at least twice a day because they can develop behaviour problems if you leave them alone.
You have to groom it on four months in order to keep a healthy coat.
Bichons can reach the weight around 3 – 6 kg, while females can reach 23 – 28 tall and males about 23 – 30 cm.
