    Smile 11 week old bichon frise

    I have got a male Bichon Frise who is 11 weeks old. His name is Bailey. Trying to crate train him...driving me round the bend, but things are getting easier!

    Looking forward to chatting.

    Debbie

    Hi Debbie, i have a 2 year old male Bichon called Riley. They are great companions! One thing i would advise is to mkae sure they are groomed regularly. I groom mine myself but if left too long it can be a nightmare! I havent crate trained mine but im sure at first it is hard.

    Hi Amanda. We brush Bailey every day, so we have not really experienced any major tangles yet! We bath him once a week, but have taken him to the groomers once, but just for a gentle introduction. He is going to get a hair cut in about 2 weeks time, which will make the daily brushing even easier. We have not left him alone and awake in his crate yet, but are starting to introduce it this week for short spells at a time. Hate the thought of leaving him home alone, but need to get on with shopping etc during the day, rather than wait till the husband or kids come home !

    Hi there... I am also a Bichon owner. Humphrey is 5 months old. We live on a farm and he just loves rolling in the dirt and (yuck) eating horse and cow poo. We have him in a crate overnight and this works well, although he wasn't too happy to begin with. At the moment he has infected ears. We have drops to put in them which he absolutely hates. The drops make the hair around his ears greasy so that part of him is even dirtier. Thankfully he quite enjoys his bath. Up to now I have been grooming him but he gets his first professional wash and cut this Friday. We leave him home when we go shopping etc. He can get into the house via his doggy door and we leave the radio on and make sure he is distracted with toys or a treat before we go out the door. He plays with our alpacas and mini ponies. We were worried at first that they would kick him but they seem to realise that he belongs to us and are very tolerant of him. The other day he rolled over on his back and one of the mini ponies licked his tummy. Oh, and he also thinks he's a cattle dog and helps us round up the cattle. More often than not he splits the herd.

    Hi everyone. I have a cavalier king charles spaniel called Bumble, and he has feathers, and you have to brush him about three times a week. He also gets lots of mats in his ears, so i have to brush those everyday! My friend has a bichon x cavalier, and she has to be cut every month. She also gets mats, and when i looked after her for a week, i had to brush her everyday to get rid of mats. U can get special Bichon brushes and grooming supplies from your dog groomer. Why not ask? Hope this helps.
