Bichon Frise Characteristics

Bichon Frise will have no problem being your happiest and most enthusiastic furry companion. They’re an energetic, playful, and smart breed that is loved by all. With its smiling face and charming attitude, this breed is a perfect introduction to dog ownership for beginner dog parents and apartment dwellers alike.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Responsive

Often mistaken for Teacup Poodles, the Bichon Frise typically stands at around 9-11 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh between 7-11 pounds.  Often with white, black, or brown coats, Bichons are rumored to have originated in the Mediterranean and to have been taken along on trade routes into other countries. Despite their small stature, they're not classified as a Toy breed by the AKC; instead, they're members of the Non-Sporting Group.

 

Because they don't shed like other breeds, Bichons often are recommended for people with allergies. You may want to consult a doctor before purchasing one, however, because not everyone reacts the same way to a Bichon's hair. Like other small breeds, Bichon's can be trained easily to perform well at agility, obedience, and other competitions. This breed also excels in therapy work due to its gentle nature and doll-like appearance.

 

Many people are likely to overprotect their Bichon Frise due to their size and cuddly nature, but this can ultimately make your dog more fearful and spoiled. It’s good to be mindful of dangerous situations that your dog might be in, but allowing your dog to navigate encounters with other dogs, animals, and people without interfering unnecessarily will help instill your dog with confidence.

How dog-friendly is New York?

New York is a hugely diverse state, with New York City providing a contrast to more rural and suburban communities upstate. With this diversity comes a real range of standards for puppy and dog care. 


A study by Pawsafe ranks New York as the 32nd most pet-friendly state in the country. According to Safewise, New York has the third-highest percentage of pet-friendly rentals, behind Florida and Washington. An estimated 44% of all rentals are pet-friendly. However, only 27% of New York residents own a dog. This is a solid amount below the 40% average among all U.S. households. 


Are cities in New York dog-friendly?

A study by WalletHub ranks the top 100 U.S. cities for how pet-friendly they are. The study looks at metrics like pet care provider costs, walkability, the number of pet-friendly apartments, veterinary care costs, and animal welfare laws.

Buffalo

Buffalo and New York City just make it on the list as the country’s 86th and 90th most pet-friendly cities.

The city of Buffalo also has a healthy amount of dog-friendly parks. According to the TPL, the city has the 58th most dog parks per capita with 0.8 parks per 100 residents. There are plenty of off-leash parks and features for your dog to enjoy. 

New York City pups

While it can be a challenge to raise a big dog in a little NYC apartment, the city does have some amazing perks for pet lovers.

Research from the Trust for Public Land (TPL) shows that New York City has the 27th highest number of dog parks per capita, with 1.7 dog parks per 100,000 residents. Many of these parks allow dogs to run off-leash between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m. 


There are 28 off-leash dog runs in Manhattan alone. Many are separated into areas for small and large dogs and some have water features to keep your pet cool. You can use your early morning walks to find some new friends for you and your pup.

According to NYC Dog Data, the top dogs in the city are:

  • Shih Tzu

  • Chihuahua

  • Labrador Retriever

  • American Pit Bull


Of the various neighborhoods in New York City, Manhattan has the highest concentration of dogs, with an estimated 119,340 pups. After that, Brooklyn is the most populated district with over 88,742 doggos.


The city also has excellent services for dog walkers, pet care, vets, and more.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in New York

New York does a decent job when it comes to the treatment of animals at shelters. But there are some areas where the state can improve. Of the 80,855 dogs and cats that entered New York shelters in 2020, they only saved 85.6%. The “no-kill” state benchmark is a 90% save rate. We hope to see New York push for getting more pets in loving homes.
