A Bichapoo, also known a Poochon or Bichon Poodle, is a mix between a Toy Poodle and Bichon Frise. Bichapoos are eager to please and very intelligent dogs. If you want a highly affectionate dog, they are a great choice. Bichapoos enjoy other animals, so they work well if you already have a furry friend. They are excellent little watchdogs and will let you know when strangers are at the door.

Thinking about bringing home a Bichapoo puppy? Here is how to care for this breed:

Bichapoo Diet

Bichapoos thrive when fed frequent small meals throughout the day. Smaller dogs can be more prone to dental issues, so be sure to use high-quality food and treats. Both Bichons and Poodles are known for having allergies, so be sure to use all-natural food to help reduce the risk of allergy issues.

Exercise Needs

These pooches are little but full of energy. It is important to walk them for at least a half hour each day, and also provide them with a regular playtime to help to control their energy levels. Provide your Bichapoo with appropriate toys to help with mentally stimulation.

Coat Maintenance

Bichapoos have a very soft coat with curls from their poodle lineage. Bichapoos are very light shedders and get their coats’ hypoallergenic nature from their poodle lineage. In order to prevent your Bichapoo’s coat from matting, daily brushing is required. This also helps to keep shedding down to a minimum. In addition to daily brushing, they need a trip to the groomer to keep their coat short and easy to maintain every six to eight weeks.


Poodles are known for their intelligence, and Bichapoos exhibit this same intelligence. They are very curious and easy to train. It is important to start training from day one, so they do not develop bad habits. They quickly pick up on fun tricks and enjoy pleasing you when they get it right.
