Bichon-A-Ranian Breed Maintenance
The long and fluffy coat of the Bichon-A-Ranian will look best if brushed daily. Bathe these dogs when necessary. Maintenance may be different, depending on which parent it adopts its coat from. If their coat is curly like the Bichon Frise, it will require grooming more often than that of the straight coated Pomeranian. The Bichon Frise is prone to skin allergies and other problems. Therefore, it is important to keep on top of the coat care. They have fur that could get tangled when in water, so always brush them before bathing. Those hybrids more similar to the Pomeranian will need to be brushed twice a week at minimum to remove tangles and debris from their fur. To keep their coat neat, trim the fur around the ears, rear, face and feet. Small breeds such as these are prone to dental diseases, and therefore brushing their teeth at least two or three times a week is a must, although daily would be best. Clean your dog’s ears weekly as well, and clip their nails monthly.
