Bichpoo temperament

Playful: Bichpoos love to play and interact with anything around them, both humans and other dogs and animals. They are usually quick to interact with strangers and love being the center of attention.

Affectionate: Bichpoos thrive on human interaction, especially from their owners. They love spending time with their owners and feeling loved and appreciated, so don’t be surprised when they love to snuggle!

Active: Although they are small, they have plenty of energy! Whether it is inside or outside, Bichpoos love playing games and staying active. Thankfully, their small size still enables them to fit well in smaller homes, but they do need regular exercise.

Cheerful: As long as they are loved, Bichpoos are a pleasant and happy breed. They are sure to bring joy into your home and to your family!

Barkers: Bichpoos are alert dogs, and they also tend to bark if something is amiss or they get overstimulated. While this is good as a watchdog, it can be annoying when it becomes constant or barking from stimulation. Consistent training as a puppy is key to helping with this issue.

Alert and Watchful: Bichpoos often inherit the alertness and tendency to bark from both parent breeds. This makes them good watchdogs, as they may alert you to the presence of strangers or unusual sounds.

Adaptable: These hybrid dogs can adapt well to different living situations, including apartments or houses, as long as they receive sufficient exercise, mental stimulation, and social interaction.

Keep in mind that while these characteristics provide a general idea of what to expect from Bichpoos, individual dogs can have unique personalities and traits. Proper socialization, training, and care are essential to raising a happy and well-behaved Bichpoo.


Bichpoo Breed history

The Bichpoo, or Poochon, breed is a designer breed, meaning it is a crossbreed between a Poodle and another breed.

The first time the Bichon Frise and Toy Poodle was bred was in the late 1990s and originated in Australia.  The United Kingdom and the United States began breeding Bichpoos soon after Australia.

Like other designer breeds, the purpose of the Poochon was to combine the intelligence and lower allergen levels of the Toy Poodle with the lively, playful Bichon Frise.

Currently, the American Kennel Club does not recognize designer breeds, so the Bichpoo is not a registered breed. 

Breeds similar to the Bichpoos include the Cockapoo and the Maltipoo.

Bichpoo Average size

Bichpoo adults are about 9-14 inches tall at the shoulder.  They usually weigh 9-14 pounds.

Average Bichpoo lifespan

Bichpoos have an expected lifespan of 12-15 years.

Bichpoo body features

The most common colors on Bichpoos are cream, tan, and apricot. While the coats are usually a solid color, sometimes they will have blended colors.

grooming Your Bichpoo Puppy

Many Bichpoos have a medium-length coat that does require regular brushing, even though it may resemble the Toy Poodle’s coat as well.

It is easy for dirt and loose hair to get caught in the dog’s coat, and the coat should be regularly brushed several times a week to keep dirt and matted hair to a minimum.

Keeping Your Bichpoo Puppy Healthy

Because they are a relatively new breed, and a designer breed, not as much is known exactly about the Bichpoo’s health as a crossbreed.

However, both the Bichon Frise and Toy Poodle are healthy breeds, and many dog health experts agree that the Bichpoo should also be a healthy breed.

Bichpoos (Poochons) do have hairy ears, and it is essential to make sure the ears stay dray, especially after bathing your puppy or swimming.  If the ears do not dry out properly, it can cause ear infections.

Also, because of their small size, it is critical to use caution when playing with them.  Children should be taught how to play with Bichpoo dogs properly in a gentle manner that doesn’t cause harm.

Like all dog breeds, they are susceptible to hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues among dogs.

Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the leg or hip becomes weakened, and it can result in arthritis or potential lameness if not addressed.

One of the best ways to prevent this is by keeping your dog from too much running on hard surfaces, especially when they are puppies.

Typical Bichpoo Allergens

The Bichpoo’s coat and allergen level for each puppy varies on how much it resembles the Bichon Frise or Toy Poodle.  However, overall the breed sheds less and is more allergen-friendly than the Bichon Frise breed.

Daily grooming and keeping your Poochon clean are also critical to keeping lower allergen levels and minimal loose hair.

As with any animal, if someone in your family has concerns with dog allergies, you should consult your family physician.

  • Are Bichpoos friendly to strangers?
    Yes! Bichpoos may bark when someone comes to the door, but they love everyone and are very friendly with strangers.
  • Do Bichpoos bark a lot?
    Some Bichpoos can develop barking problems. They inherit this trait from their Bichon parents, who are known to be pretty vocal. A Bichpoo may bark to get attention, warn people of suspicious activity, or ward off anyone who may take their food or toys. Remember, barking issues can be taken care of with proper training and socialization.
  • Do Bichpoos need a lot of exercise?
    Bichpoos are pretty energetic and playful, but not excessively active. They will need daily playtime and walks. Half an hour or so of exercise per day should do the trick.
  • Are Bichpoos friendly with other pets?
    Yes. Bichpoos are quite adaptable when it comes to living with other animals. They are a great choice for families who already have other pets.
  • Do Bichpoos have long hair?
    Bichpoos have curly, medium-long coats that need daily brushing. Both parent breeds are fairly high-maintenance when it comes to grooming, so you can expect the same from the Bichpoos.
  • Do Bichpoos do good with kids?
    Yes, Bichpoos generally love kids! Poodles can tend to be high strung and skittish, so there's a chance Bichpoos could inherit these traits, but they usually get along fine as family dogs.
  • Is a Poochon the same as a Bichpoo?
    Yes, Poochons are the same as Bichpoos. The breed has also been called the Bichdoodle, Bichonpoo, Bichondoodle, and Bichoodle.
  • Can Bichpoos get separation anxiety?
    Absolutely. Bichpoos, like most small dogs, are highly social and love being with their people. This means they may suffer from anxiety if they are left alone for too long.
  • Do Bichpoos need haircuts?
    Yes, your Bichpoo should be professionally groomed every several months. It will also need daily brushing to prevent matting and tangling, though Bichpoos shed very little.
  • What breeds are similar to the Bichpoo?
    Some similar breeds include: Bichon Frise, Poodles, Yorkiepoos, Peekapoos.
