  • Care

    The Bichon Frise is a relatively hypoallergenic breed that sheds very little. Still, these dogs' coats are far from low-maintenance. In addition to daily brushing, they require a bath and professional grooming every month or so to maintain their signature powder puff appearance. Bichon Frises also need regular nail trims and ear cleanings. And routine dental care—including at-home teeth brushing and professional dental cleaning—is essential for the long-term health of all dogs, regardless of breed.
