Bischons are not as easy to house train as other breeds. They are very intelligent but not always cooperative.

Be patient as they can learn to be paper trained or go outside and they can even learn to go on cue. (although that requires a lot of patience on your part)

Crate training is a good way to house break this breed.

Bischone Frise need regular grooming. They do not shed so they are susceptibale to matting.

It is best to brush them on a daily basis and it is a good idea to take them for regular professional grooming. Their coat is what makes them so adorable, so keeping it looking good is really important.

The Bischon's plumed tail curls up over their back, which adds to their cuteness.
