Attending an obedience class will benefit both pet and owner. He loves activity and requires regular exercise. Highly intelligent and trainable, Bichons delight in entertaining their owners. Bichons also love to run – and they are fast! Your first ‘Bichon blitz’ will amaze you. If you have a yard, make sure it’s securely fenced and work hard on teaching your dog to listen and come when called.
