Bichonpoo Characteristics

Bichonpoo's come from Poodle and Bichon Frise parents. You might also hear them called Bichon Poodles, Bichpoos, Poochons, and Bichon Poo as two separate words. These dogs are delightful companions who were able to inherit some of the best traits from their parents, including intelligence, affection, and high spirits. Early socialization and obedience training will ensure a well-behaved companion.

Fast Facts

  • Energy Moderate
  • Size Small
  • Trainability Responsive

Like many dogs crossbred with the Poodle, the Bichonpoo was originally bred as a companion dog for people who are allergic to animals. The Bichonpoo was also meant to be a small breed that did not suffer the same diseases as the Bichon Frise or Poodle, both of which are prone to health problems as a result of poor breeding or overbreeding. Because this is a newer breed, they can come in several varying sizes, rather than a predictable size like more established breeds.
 
Standing anywhere between 9-15 inches and weighing between 6 and 17 pounds, the Bichonpoo is a very portable companion. Great for apartment living, these dogs have a medium amount of energy, and if their barking habit can be quelled, they're the perfect dog to have in a small space. 
 
Like their parents, Bichonpoos are incredibly smart and alert dogs. They’re curious, active, and fun to be around, with very distinct personalities. Knowing you’re the alpha will help them feel safe and calm. They can also be quite acrobatic and are fun to play with. 
 
Like with any pet, be sure to take your Bichonpoo to the vet regularly, and focus especially on dental checkups. They can have crowding in their teeth and other dental issues. Taking good care of their health will keep them safe and happy for years!
 

How dog-friendly is Iowa?

Iowa is a dog-friendly travel destination and has a lot of dog-lovers. But a few issues cause the state to rank rather poorly for dog-friendliness, particularly its lax animal welfare laws. 


We investigated two big studies ranking all 50 states by important pet-friendliness factors. The studies looked at things like pet-friendly accommodations, pet care and services, the number of dog parks or outdoor space, and animal welfare laws. 


The first study, by animal safety group Pawsafe, ranked Iowa as the 41st most pet-friendly state. The second study, by consumer safety group Safewise, ranked it as the 43rd most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored poorly for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.


Combining these two studies together shows Iowa towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Iowa

It’s not all bad news for dog-lovers in Iowa! BringFido lists Iowa as a pet-friendly travel destination with almost 900 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also lists Racoon River and Lake Red Rock as top dog-friendly activities.


Thirty-six percent of Iowa residents own a dog. This is below the national dog ownership rate of 40%, but not by much!


What kinds of dogs do Iowans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Iowa are Labradors, Retrievers, and Huskies. Other popular breeds include Beagles, Basset Hounds, and Collies. 


Animal welfare & dog shelters in Iowa

Iowa saved 33,222 dogs and cats during 2020. However, 2,350 animals were reported killed over this same period. 


Thirty out of 61 of the animal shelters within Iowa are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is average, and the state has an average save rate of 85%. This is below the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state, but getting closer!
