Bichoodles are an alert, playful and lively breed, although they are small they are known to be energetic and boisterous. The Bichoodle is an intelligent dog that loves human companionship and enjoys any attention you can give them. Their intelligence makes them fairly easy to train, although they can be stubborn at times so owners must be firm and consistent.
They are generally good around children, although due to their small size are not suited for young children. As Bichoodles can be quite vocal at times, it is important that they are taught from an early age that barking is not okay. If it is an issue that develops it is essential that it is dealt with before it becomes a habit.
It is also important to remember not to ‘baby’ small breeds like the Bichoodle, as they can become bossy and demanding - believing they are the top of the hierarchy in your home. They are also one of the few hypoallergenic breeds making them the perfect companion for people with allergies or asthma.
