We all know that our furry friends need lots of exercise each day, but it’s not always easy to help them achieve enough. In fact, most dogs need at least 30 minutes of physical and mental stimulation each day to ensure they are happy and healthy.
Exercise & Play
This section contains fun and informative articles about exercise & play ideas for you and your Bichon Frise.
Knowing how much to exercise a Bichon Frise is key to ensuring that they get enough of it. Dogs that don’t get enough exercise can often become bored and even destructive. This can mean that your new pair of shoes could be chewed to shreds! What’s more, inactive dogs can become overweight which can lead to a whole host of health problems.
A great question that people often ask me is “can Bichon Frises live in apartments?”. People generally love the idea of owning a Bichon Frise but may live in small houses or apartments. They worry that they won’t be able to give their new Bichon enough exercise. This is a very important thing to consider as you shouldn’t own a dog if you can’t look after it properly.
I have been taking my Bichon Frise to doggy day care since she was a puppy and she absolutely loves it. So when someone asked me what exactly the benefits are with sending a dog to doggy day care, I could think of one or two things to say but not much more. After that conversation, I decided to do a little research into this topic to try and find some more answers.
