I am not a professional groomer but I am the one who groomed my Bichon Frise
Characteristic Of Bichon Frise
I can assure you that they are very cute breed ^_^. Their looks depends on their groomer and their owner.
If the groomer did not know how to handle and groom a Bichon Frise then there will be a disaster on their looks.
They look different when you shave all of their furs.
Bichon Frise is not a well-known breed "but" nowadays people seems to recognize more about Bichon Frise. They're like a stuff toy. The funny thing here when you didn't take a Bichon Frise for a couple weeks or days of bath they smell like a stuff toy or no smell at all. Well its just my own experience.
Yes! They are. It is not hard to teach a Bichon Frise tricks but sometimes they are stubborn so when they do something not okay "We, the owners" let it go. On my case I do have one Bichon Frise who would love to do all the tricks she knew just to get my attention and I do allow it. She knew what the command and tricks name but instead of doing one she will do it all without waiting any command. Although sometimes I also need to do things on my way.
I am not saying only Bichon Frise is a cuddly breed of dog but it all depends. I got lots of Bichon Frise and they are all cuddly to me even the puppies ^_^. Try to imagine a pack of Bichon Frise that would kiss and hug ^_^ its a heaven lol.
Sometimes when I don't have time for them and I'm sitting on my chair in front of my desktop they will come to me and if I grab one of them they will kiss and sleep on my side or on top of me like a baby but sometimes they are heavy. Its not a good idea but I do allow it. I let them be on my top for a couple of minutes. ^_^
A snow-ball Bichon frise, hmmm that depends on their groomer, How they cut it and how they do their shavings. About being white well they are a white breed but sometimes they have a bluff, or apricot markings.
Black Eyes and Nose
The color of their eyes is perfectly matched on their fur color ^_^. Their nose is black but its not 100% black all the time. There are times that the color will change from black to pink and pink to black.
They are very demanding. Really, they are. Some will bark at me when they need something which is fine with me as long as I do understand what they need.
Like for example
Like to be the Center of Attraction
They love to be the center of attention and attraction. Anything they will do just to get your attention. Like I said before some of my Bichon will distract me just to cuddle them or if they just do what they want (tricks) just to have a treat on their mouth ^_^
Bichon got a characteristic that may or not be a good one and that is being stubborn and strong-willed dog. It may irritate you sometimes and sometimes they will defy an easy command but don't give up ^_^. Part of it is your own mistake. Like me I've got a mistake for allowing things that should not be allowed but I don't regret it all ^_^
They love to do things they wanted to do. So if they want to do that they will do things that needed to be done Like being stubborn and getting your attention or if distracting what you were doing.
This is the reason why they have such bad habits because we do allow them and we spoiled them hahahha.
No Foul Smell
Unlike other breed they don't have any foul smell. If the shampoo, cologne did not have any effect after hours or days then they will smell like a stuff toy or no other smell but it depends
If you go outside in a sunny day they will smell like that T_T but let the hour past and they'll be back to their normal scent
If you got a cologne/shampoo that will last for days then that's a good one ^_^
For me they are the best breed I have ^_^ not because they are cute and intelligent and let's be frank here all of the dogs have their own feature and looks and their own mind but there are few dogs or breed that will satisfy what you were seeking. As I said they have a bad habits but still I accepted them not because they got it but I cant resist them lol.
All of the dogs have their characteristic not just Bichon Frise ^_^ and if something is wrong its not because of the dog but its the fault of the owner.
