Bichons also need regular exercise, and not just when the sun is shining. And a consistent basic education does not harm even the smallest dog! However, you are quite comfortable with a few smaller laps a day. Above all, it is important to them to be close to their caregiver and to receive a lot of attention and affection!
If you have small children or are more of a sporty type, you should opt for a strong Havanese rather than a three-kilogram Maltese! There are very different breeding lines in all Bichon breeds. Depending on the attitude of the breeder, the size and weight of the adult animals can vary considerably. When in doubt, you should visit several breeders to find the dog that suits you best.
If a breeder who values particularly filigree animals does not want to entrust you with a puppy, he will have his reasons for doing so! Feel free to ask him about it. If in doubt, it is better to do without a dog of this breed altogether!
In terms of health, some Bichons tend to have problems with their intervertebral discs. Many are very picky eaters, easily prone to diarrhea and the occasional problem with blocked tear ducts leading to ugly brown marks under the eyes. Teeth also need special care. The very small and light specimens in particular are prone to tartar and premature tooth loss.
