Italian-Bichon Breed Maintenance
The Italian Bichon is very unlike to have the dense, long coat of the Bichon Frise. They are typically seen with coats that are more fine and sparsely distributed throughout their body. If these dogs inherit more of a Bichon coat and appearance then it is possible that they may be hypoallergenic. Their coats can be brushed with a soft bristle brush at least once every 2 weeks as they aren’t really prone to matting but can trap a lot of dirt in their fur. Their teeth need to be cleaned weekly, ears need to be monitored and cleaned regularly and nails need to be trimmed if not worn out. Bathing should be done when needed, but most often, owners can choose to simply use a damp cloth to wipe dirt off their dog.
