    I bought this book to assist with the training of our new Bichon. Our puppy is still only 13weeks but the information in the book is excellent. I have had dogs before and the Bichon is unique in many ways. The book has helped is to discover this and look for the signs in his behaviour. I recommend this book to anybody considering or who have just bought a Bichon puppy.Ricky

    This is an excellent book for anybody embarking on Bichon Frise ownership. I have always shared my life with these great little dogs and find them to be highly intelligent companions. This book offers advice on every aspect of their care,not just the physical considerations such as feeding and grooming,but very inportantly keeping these fantastic dogs mentally stimulated and happy.The book is very well set out and easy to follow with lovely illustrations.Whether you are considering buying a Bichon for the first time or are an established owner of this breed you will find everything you require to give the best home and care to these dogs.

    This is a very good book as it includes the personality traits that so many other books miss out.Bichons are very sensitive to any danger and have the memory of an elephant.Our current Bichon has her food on a chair,she is a shy eater and prefers to be away from the other dogs at mealtimes.One thing we have found is that by giving only fresh meat and a "good" mixer our Bichons never have the skin complaints we read about and hear about.We have found that Bichons are not greedy eaters.Once they have a meal then that is all they want,so it is comparatively easy to keep them at a steady,healthy weight.There are excllent tips in this book that will help the novice and not so novice.Just love your bichon as much as possible.Hold them,cuddle them,walk them,talk to them.I don't think you will ever see lovelier eyes than a Bichon's.To finalise with a true story,Lottie our eldest,tells us when something is wrong!She always begs our attention by huffing and puffing & racing back and for - if things are not as they should be say for example in the garden.One Winters evening she kept coming to us in a frantic state,asking us to follow.Eventually we put our coats on and with torches followed her to the garden,then up the path to the Summerhouse.We were puzzled as all around seemed quiet; but, as she was frantically telling us something was wrong we decided to open the chalet,and Lottie rushed in.There on the floor, quite motionless was a large Koi Carp that we had isolated in a deep tank earlier for some treatment.(The Summer house doubles up as the fish hospital!)The Koi must have somehow jumped out, and we could see that it had been flipping about by the dried up marks on the floor.Sadly by now the Koi was totally lifeless,assumed dead!!... Lottie kept nudging the fish and we thought we could see a very,very slight movement ~~ so my husband put it carefully back into the water.The fish lay motionless on it's side for ages.My husband kept putting it upright and rocking it gently in the water,and suddenly it started to move.Everytime my husband let it go the Koi went back sideways,so this rocking motion was kept up for an hour or so until the fish was "sort" of upright but floppy.Eventually, to cut a long story short, the Koi was put back into the pond the next day,where it swam with a definite tilt,and seemed drunk for about 3 weeks.One day it swam upright and then never looked back.We called the fish Lazarus,and he is one of the biggest Koi we have now.So dear little Lottie saved the day for Lazarus,the fish who was technically dead.Please belive me when I say the above is 100% true, it is just an example of the intelligence and pesistence of a Bichon.Buy this book with confidence!

    this book I found very helpful, and still am. with not having this breed of dog before.The way these little dogs think & behave,their moods.This book helped me understand them & they began to respond better, as I was ableto stay in control, any worries I just looked it up in the book.

    This is a great book, lots of information for the beginner. It has good explanations and photos, my dad gets on really well with it, he watches the DVD provided and follows the instructions to train our Bichons.It feels a little dated but would still recommend.

  • By Sal on 10 November 2013

    Excellent information in this book. There's nothing it didn't cover for me and what I needed to know after adopting to ex puppy farm Bichon's.It even had the cd still with it which I was surprised about! All great stuff!

  • By Grateful reader on 31 October 2016

    Not too bad but not as helpful as I was hoping. I have heard lots of reports that Bichon's need special training as they are 'different' from other dogs so I was hoping for more information in this respect, I was disappointed!
