Feeding Your Bichon Frise
"Bichons on the go, need good
All of our Bichons Frises have been raised in our home in Oregon
on dry grain free dog food. Occasionally we will mix a little of the canned flavors on the dry to add a little
variety, but the kibble is really the best for their teeth, and the easiest way for you to measure and keep them
from gaining too much weight as they age. We also give them limited amounts of lean beef, and fish. Plus
safe cooked vegetables like carrots, green beans, garbonzo beans and peas. We really like
the "Taste of the Wild" dry kibble varieties for our puppies and our adults. Here is a link to
the Taste of the
Wild website in case you would like to check out the
many varieties of grain free foods they have to offer.
The Bichon Frise Club of
America, has an excellent
section on feeding your Bichon from age 10 weeks and up. There are many good brands of food out there, some dogs
adapt to certain formulas better than others. You can usually tell the better brands by the price, and most of the
better brands are not sold in the regular grocery stores. This usually applies to dog treats as well. We are not
trying to sell you "Taste of the Wild" foods, but rather we are just letting you know that it is one of the quality
foods that our dogs have done well on.
If you have an
interest in other food options like recipes for preparing your own healthy foods for your dog , there are several
promoters out there. To find out more click here.
A long with a high quality food, we recommend a good
vitamin supplement. Our dogs are all currently taking NuVet Plus for dogs.
