Bichon Frise

Nothing comes between a girl and her shoes. Except maybe Puppy Spot who delivered me to this nice family who got me all of these nice shoes. The whole process was smooth, informative, and overall a very pleasant process. If you want a high quality puppy like me, this is where to find them.

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 Oklahoma?

We have a few different studies to rank Oklahoma, and overall it’s a pretty great place to own a pet! 


Two major studies ranked all 50 states by several factors related to pet-friendliness. They evaluated indicators like access to pet services and veterinary care, animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, outdoor space, and dog parks. 


The first study, by an animal safety group called Pawsafe, ranked Oklahoma quite well as the 16th most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored well with Pawsafe for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Another broad study, conducted by a consumer safety review site called Safewise, didn’t rank the state quite as well. Oklahoma came in 33rd most pet-friendly state in the country according to Safewise. 


However, if we take the two studies together, Oklahoma is good to average in the pet-friendliness category.

Are cities in Oklahoma pet-friendly?

We also considered a study from Wallethub that surveyed the 100 largest cities in the country to rank them by pet-friendliness. Here’s how Oklahoma’s largest city stacked up.

Tulsa

Tulsa ranked 27th overall, scoring 15th in pet budget, 58th in pet health and wellness, and 50th in outdoor pet-friendliness.


A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study also reviewed the country’s 100 largest cities. They ranked all 100 by which have the most dog parks per capita. Tulsa ranked in 78th place, with 0.5 dog parks per 100,000 people.
