The Bichon Frise is the only purebred dog I have ever shared my life with. The breed is lovable, happy and easy to train. I have 25 years experience and research into learning about them. I know its important to give them training, good nutritious food, and maintain their coats often with brushing and bathing. But the most important aspect of bring this breed home is to understand they are a true companion breed and should not be left alone for long periods of time, especially puppies. Luckily, I have always been able to be there for my Bichons 24/7. They are family. They give people we meet many smiles and laughs and I am very proud of them as I am my own kids.
