Poochons get the best of both worlds. The Bichon Frsie and the poodle are two of the smartest, loyal, and family friendly breeds around. The poochon gets all the best traits from both mom and dad.
Poochons are a smaller breed dog. Growing from 12-15 inches tall and weighing from 6-18 pounds.
Poochons are a mostly non-shedding dog even tho there is no such thing as a 100% non-shedding dog. They have curly coats that will not leave hair all over your house but will need to regularly brushed and groomed. This also makes the beloved poochon a hypoallergenic poochie for all our families with this concern. The fur however grows like human hair so it will need to be regularly bathed and trimmed. The great thing about these little sweeties, they fit in the sink!
The Poochon is affectionate towards its humans. The Poochon has a strong social personality, so it needs to interact with people and/or other pets. The Poochon is really an indoor dog and one who will want to be close to it's family members at all times.
Here at Grace Wood we have a strong policy that if you want any puppy from us you better be 100% ready to train it! Every puppy needs training and to not be willing to do this disqualifies you from owning a puppy or dog. With that said poochons are easy to house train and teach tricks too but they will need to be trained not to bark at everything. While they will be a great watch dog for you and alarm you to any danger or stranger, they will need training not to bark at everything.
Most crossbreed dogs are healthier than purebreds, and the poochon is no exception. They tend to live long, full lives with few health problems. Some things to look out for as your puppy ages include dental problems like tooth loss and gum disease, eye issues such as age-related blindness and cataracts, and joint stiffness and arthritis, particularly in poochons carrying a few extra pounds. Help your dog stay healthy by prioritizing regular veterinary checkups, scheduling dental cleanings and keeping an eye on their weight and dietary habits, including limiting treats and table foods.
