Bichon Frises may be among the happiest beings on the planet. We've been lucky enough to know several and each has been energetic, joyful, sociable, and loving. We understand from their owners that Bichons may be a bit headstrong at times and house breaking can be a challenge. It's also true that once you fall for a Bichon, you'll have a life long devotion to this breed, described by the Bichon Frise Club of America as "gentle mannered, sensitive, playful and affectionate."
Some of our favorite products for Bichons include:
Chicken Heart Treats
. Some of our Bichon friends have been rather picky eaters - but they've all loved these single-ingredient, made in America treats.
. Bichons love to play! So here are some toys that are great for tossing and fetching.
EZ Wrap Harness
. The EZ Wrap Harness by Bark Appeal is the easiest step-in harness, no choking and coughing on the next Bichon adventure.
Car Booster Seat
. Keep your buddy safely strapped in - and indulge his curiosity with a car seat high enough for him to enjoy the view.
. Tire your Bichon out by playing with Thinking Toys!
Choke Free Shoulder Collar
. One of the simplest harnesses ever keeps your dog secure while staying away from the sensitive throat and neck.
Stow Away Rain Jacket
. If your Bichon hates the rain (or you hate dealing with your dog's wet fur) you'll always be prepared for inclement weather with this foldaway rain jacket.
Bandana Collar Scarf
. Our friends Sunny and Casey were our models for these great accessories. Changes are easy - any collar just slips through the special pocket.
