Disadvantages of the Bichon Frise

We are familiar with three toy dogs in our daily life. We should all know about them. For example, the Bichon Frise, the mini schnauzer, and the teddy. These three kinds of dogs are very popular among family companion dogs. Because of their small size and white hair, they are sought after by many women. Therefore, before raising the Bichon Frise, many people will habitually want to know, what are the advantages and disadvantages of the Bichon Frise dog? Can you bear these and raise them? The practice is the hard truth. As a pet companion dog, the Bichon Frise is very qualified and excellent, but the Bichon Frise dog also has some shortcomings, but the real love of the Bichon Frise dog, I believe this does not affect you But the determination to take care of it. Therefore, as long as parents master certain methods and skills of raising dogs and know how to treat and take care of them, it will be easy for you to raise Bichon Frise dogs.


1. Thin and sensitive limbs

Due to its thin bones, Bichon Frises is relatively easy to have a bone fracture. Therefore, it is not allowed to carry out vigorous fitness activities to prevent some climbing, standing up, bouncing, and other postures. The owner must be able to give the dog some calcium tablets to promote the body’s bone strength.

2. Stubborn about snacks

Bixiong is a greedy little dog. If you give it a look, you will find a way to get it from the owner’s house. Moreover, there is no control. If you dare to give it, you dare to eat it all the time, so it often fails to digest well.
We feed Bichon Frise dogs to cultivate good eating habits, feeding mainly eat less and more meals, snacks only appropriate.

3. It’s hard to clean though the hair is short

It’s white and beautiful, but it’s really a headache to wash it. If you don’t pay attention to it, the hair will turn yellow very easily, and the hair quality is poor and not smooth. The owner must always tidy up, clean up on time, cut and repair, and select the special bath milk for puppies. The owner can also choose to feed some salmon, cooked egg yolk, and deep-sea fish oil, which can beautify the hair and protect the color.

4. Weak constitution

Because it is a small and medium-sized dog, Bichon Frises can’t do too much physical exercise, and the gastrointestinal level is more sensitive. Therefore, it is necessary for the owner to carefully feed the bear, select high-quality dog food as far as possible, and do a good job in pest control and pre seedling work on time. For the bear with a poor gastrointestinal tract and easy to get sick, the owner can moderately feed the dog with probiotic powder, increase the total number of probiotics in the intestinal tract, inhibit and kill harmful bacteria, prevent intestinal bacteria confusion, promote the dog’s appetite, and prevent nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, severe constipation, and other diseases.


5. Congenital developed lacrimal gland

Bichon Frise dog congenital lacrimal gland developed, and its nasolacrimal duct is short, coupled with the diet structure problems, very easy to produce tears, not beautiful. The owner should pay attention to the dog’s living environment and daily necessities. He should clear the ear hole and trim the hair near the eyes on time.

Among the three toy dogs, the Bichon Frise, the mini Schnauzer, and the Teddy dog, the IQ of the Bichon Frise dog are really behind the other two breeds, because the Bichon Frise dog is not as alert as the other two dogs. If the Teddy can be used to visit the home, the Bichon Frise may be slightly inferior to it. In addition, both Teddy and Schnauzer are terriers, so by contrast, they are more likely to shed hair than bears and need more patience in their care.
The Bichon Frise dog is very dependent on its owner in daily life. It is very clingy, because it is eager for parents to give it more attention and love, and hope to be accompanied by the owner all the time. So by contrast, the Bichon Frise may not be as independent as Teddy and Chenery and not as strong as they are. If you enjoy being clingy and dependent on your dog, it’s better for you to raise than a bear dog.
