Bichon Frise Puppy and Swimming Pool

You need to take extra care of Bichon Frise puppy if you have a swimming pool that the Bichon Frise puppy can fall into. Swimming pools can be very attractive to a curious Bichon Frise pup. He might not realize that he cannot “walk on water” or he may accidentally fall in while playing too closely around the pool. It is always a good idea to teach your Bichon Frise puppy how to get out of your pool in case he does fall in accidentally or he may drown. When it is time for your Bichon Frise puppy to have a bath (the pool chemicals are harmful to Bichon Frise’s coat and need to be shampooed out), go with him for a swim. Show him how to get out of the pool safely. This is also true for large ponds or any body of water in your yard. After his swimming lesson is over, give your Bichon Frise puppy a complete bath to get rid of all the chemicals from his coat and skin. It is a good idea to repeat the swimming pool lesson annually so your Bichon Frise remembers how to get out of the pool if he falls in.

Bichon Frise Puppy and fleas

Before you bring a Bichon Frise puppy home, it is a good to get rid of any fleas or ticks that are living on your property. It is always much easier to maintain a flea-free puppy, if the puppy doesn’t have fleas in the first place. A few weeks before you are scheduled to pick up your Bichon Frise puppy, have your home and yard sprayed for fleas and ticks. If you have other pets already, make sure all of them are flea-free. Outside cats especially attract fleas. If necessary have your other pets flea-dipped. Do NOT bring your new Bichon Frise puppy into an environment with fleas since some Bichons are very allergic to fleabites.
