    History

    It is said that the Bichon Frise, also known as Bichon à poil frisé, is the product of a cross between the Maltese and other small dogs, including Barbet (French Water Dog), ancestor of Poodle.

    Very present on the shore of the Mediterranean during the 14th century, it would have been introduced to the Canary Islands by merchants and sailors who roamed the seas. At that time, the curly-haired Bichon was called Tenerife, by the name of one of the Canary Islands.

    It was at the beginning of the 16th century when the Bichon Frise made its appearance in France, more specifically under the reign of Francisco I (1494-1547), that made him her favorite companion. Later, King Henry IV (1553-1610), that he was a great admirer of the breed, made her a very popular companion dog and sought after by the ladies and gentlemen of the Court.

    The heyday of Bichon Frise lasted until the 18th century, two centuries marked by the interest of the great painters of the time for this little dog.

    Unfortunately, as with many breeds of dogs, World War I was a severe blow to the Bichon à poil frisé, and during the interwar period, the breeders of Bichon Frise almost entirely disappeared.

    Fortunately, a passionate Belgian breeder and lover of the breed allowed it to survive by organizing several reproductions in the decade of 1920. France officially recognized the breed in 1933.

    World War II and its terrible consequences, in both human and animal terms, were a second blow to the race, you had to wait three decades before seeing a new boom.

    In 1960, the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) reconoció oficialmente al Bichon au poil frisé, giving it Belgian and French origins, but it wasn't until the decade of 1970 when his popularity really started to grow.

    In United States, the Bichon Frize Club of America was created in 1964, and the breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1973.

    In France, el Club of Bichons and Small Dogs Lions trabaja desde 1947 to defend and improve the Bichon Frise, but also the Bichon Maltese, the habanero, the Bichon Bolonais and the Little Lion Dog.

    It is also a good idea to bathe your dog once a month with a nourishing dog shampoo., followed by an equally nourishing conditioner, to facilitate daily detangling and keep her beautiful white coat looking perfect.
