Bichon Frise Behavior

The Bichon Frise does not need to flirt to win your heart. In fact, it does not have to try at all. You can’t help but fall in love. Its sensitive and affectionate nature stirs the same feelings in you.

One of the reasons people buy dogs is to feel safe and protected. With a Bichon Frise, however, something about those expressive eyes and its winning ways make you want to be the protector. Even those who declare themselves to be non-animal lovers will think twice when a Bichon Frise is introduced to them. Provided it receives tender, loving care, the Bichon Frise rarely displays a temper tantrum.

Is it a high maintenance dog?

You wouldn’t think it once lived among French royals and Italian nobility. It may look like a princess with its white soft curly hair, but it certainly does not behave like one. This breed is content living indoors either in a palatial home or small city apartment, and does not require any vigorous running in wide, open spaces to unleash its energies.

Bichon Frise and Children

Potential pet owners usually worry about how a dog would get along with small children. The Bichon Frise, if socialized early on, is the ideal playmate. Given its lively and energetic qualities, it bonds easily with young people. Many breeders will point to its consistent cheerfulness as its most outstanding trait. They generally also get along with other household pets!

The pleasant temperament of the Bichon Frise, however, must not be challenged. Children must be reminded that they should not handle their pet roughly. Aggressiveness is not ingrained in this breed. An article on the web site of the Bichon Frise Club of America said that “even good genes will not tolerate bad handling”, so when they feel provoked, well-behaved Bichons can turn into biters, displaying some degree of aggression.
If the Bichon Frise begins to be consistently aggressive, the manner in which children and other individuals treat it should be closely examined. Constantly teasing the Bichon Frise, rough playing, taking toys away or interrupting meals can annoy your pet. Even humans don’t tolerate such inconsiderate behaviors!

Leaving the Bichon Frise Alone

In dog parlance, there’s a phrase used often – separation anxiety. Many breeds manifest this quality, and the Bichon Frise is no exception. Because it is a companion dog and thrives on human company, it cannot be left on its own for long periods. While it can be left alone for a few hours, day-long separations go against his inner nature. The good news is he can be trained. For a Bichon Frise NOT to feel true separation anxiety, proper training with the assistance of an expert obedience trainer should be considered. Leaving the Bichon Frise alone must be done gradually – a five-minute separation initially, and then increasing the duration until your pet is comfortable about being alone.

Adaptability - Part of Bichon Frise’s temperament

The Bichon Frise’s temperament is remarkable. Owners find it easily adapts to new surroundings and new people. Thanks to his sociability, this breed’s friendly and eager-to-please temperament makes it bond effortlessly with new owners.

The Bichon Frise loves to be the center of attention. Give it all the attention you can, and it will reward you with a generous sprinkling of happiness dividends for many years!
