The Bichpoo is also known as a Poochon or Bichon. This breed is a mix between a Toy Poodle and a Bichon Frise. The Bichpoo originated in the 1990s in Australia and was bred specifically for families that were searching for an active dog that was calm enough to be around children and other pets in the household. The Poochon’s parent, a Toy Poodle, was first bred in Germany and is a bright and athletic dog who makes a great companion. The Poochon’s other parent, the Bichon Frise, is originally from the Mediterranean.
With an upbeat, lovable, and friendly personality, the Poochon is a joy to be around. They inherited their warm temperaments and easy-going personality from their parents. They are also very intelligent dogs, many thanks to their Poodle parent. This kid-friendly dog makes a great family pet and even does well with other pets in the home.
The Poochon can be found in a variety of stunning colors. The most common are solid tan, apricot, black, grey, and cream but can also be found in different blends and variations of these colors. Making sure to take the time to properly groom the Poochon is very important. Daily coat brushing will prevent matting and knots from occurring. Should his coat begin to form knots, consider applying a small amount of dog anti-tangler spray and gently work the mat out. Bi-weekly baths will also help keep his coat looking its best.
Pooches, especially when puppies, are very energetic and need a lot of energy. Feeding him high-quality dog food two times a day is a good way to properly fuel his growing and active body. Many Poochon owners tend to serve their dogs meals every twelve hours. This has shown to be a good balance of nutrition. Proper teeth cleaning for your puppy is also very important for his health and should occur three times every week.
This breed of dogs is more like toys and so they could be 9 to 14 inches when they’re fully grown.
Every dog needs their daily exercise and the Bichon Poo is no exception. You could exercise them for 20 to 40 minutes daily.
