Oohlalah Bichons & Lagotto

Bichons are at their best when in constant company. Like most breeds, they do not do well when left on their own for long periods of time.
Good fencing is required as Bichons are very intelligent and will find a way out to be with you.
As with any breed, a warm dry place to sleep is required, where they feel safe and close to the family.
Our Air-conditioned Dog Accommodation & Grooming Facilities

A proper balanced diet is recommended for your Bichon. A quality puppy food as well as cooked meats like chicken, turkey and beef with rice and vegetables is also fine.
I personally use and recommend a good quality dry food, developed for small dogs as their base diet.
Regular grooming is required and is best to get your Bichon used to being brushed and groomed as a puppy. Start out slowly and reward your puppy after each brushing.
The dog’s face needs attention to keep the hair out of their eyes. Clip the hair around the stomach, bottom and tail area for hygiene. Clip around the paws, as if this gets too long, the dog may not walk properly.
Professional clipping is recommended in between home brushing and grooming.
