The PooChon aslo known as Bich-poo is a designer breed made from the crossbreeding of two wonderful dog breeds: the Bichon Frise and the Miniature Poodle. This designer breed is very smart and active. With both of the parents being extremely intelligent breeds, especially the Poodle, the Bich-poo will no doubt be very smart. Therefore, they should be quick to learn and potty training will be a breeze, but they will also need mental stimulation, otherwise they may become destructive.
These dogs can fit into almost any household, including those with children, which they will love to play with. However, make sure that your children know how to handle a dog, since they are small and can get hurt if accidentally dropped or stepped on. Amicable and fun-loving, they should not have any problems getting along with other pets. Be sure to properly socialize your pet, as some Poodles do tend to be somewhat high strung. They are loyal and, although they may be small, they can still be good watch dogs that will alert you of any suspicious noises.
