COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:  Belgium/France.

SPECIAL SKILLS:
  Family pet.

SIZE:  The shoulder-height may not exceed 30cm (11 3/4in) and the weight should be about 4kg (8 3/4lb).

COAT:  The silken coat consists of locks of spirally formed hairs.  There is no undercoat and the color is always pure white.

CARE REQUIRED:
  The coat should be combed thoroughly every day.  Occasionally, the coat of this dog will need a professional clipping.  In common with other dogs with such coats, the Bichon Frise is clipped to a specific style which can vary from country to country.  To keep the coat white, it will be necessary to wash the dog regularly with a recognized dog shampoo.  Check at set intervals that the hairs around the eyes are not causing irritation and use the special lotion for this purpose to remove any tear stains.  Clip excess hair between the pads of the feet and remove loose hairs and any dirt from the ear passages.  This breed does not shed hair.  Brush the dog regularly to remove dead hairs. 

CHARACTER:  These dogs bond very closely with their handler, though they can be left alone occasionally.  They are also pliable, cheerful, active, playful, intelligent, sociable, and sensitive.

TRAINING: 
Since these are bright dogs which quickly catch on to what you want them to do, there is no real problem in training them.

SOCIAL BEHAVIOR:
  Bichons are naturally sociable dogs which are happiest when they are part of a family which takes them everywhere.  This sociable trait also means that they are fine in the company of other dogs, pets, and children.

EXERCISE
:  This breed adapts itself entirely to the family circumstances.

SPECIAL REMARKS:  These dogs need intensive grooming or they look unkempt.  If this is a problem, another breed of dog should be considered.
