How Often Should I Have My Bichon Frise Groomed?

I’ve begged my mom for a dog for like my whole life and she said i could get one if a saved up money for it and i could pay for it by myself. I’ve decided on a bichon frise. I want to know how much grooming will cost and when i should have it groomed. Also what are some inexpensive places to go to have it groomed.

I have my bichon frise groomed every 6-8 weeks

    It is imperative that the Bichon undego regular grooming otherwise the coat mats. Since the bichon does not shed, mats are a serious concern, as they may result in skin sores, tearing and skin disease.Heavily matted animals must be shaven to solve the problem. Grooming means a thotough brushing at least once a week. Daily brushing is much better, if done on a daily basis it will take approximatley 15 minutes. Pet cut bichons will have a shorter coat and should go to the groomers for cuts every 6 to 8 weeks. Show cut bichons, in full show coat (The coat is kept longer) should go to the groomers at least monthly or sooner. The cost of grooming varies but the average cost is between $35 and $50. Pet or show cut Bichons may need to be bathed in between grooming appointments. First, brush and combthem out completley and remove any mats. If mats are left i, they are impossible to get out after the coat gets wet. After the bath, you will need to blow dry while brushing the coat out. The average time it takes to bathe and brush out a Bichon is 1 1/2 to 2 hours, if the dog is in pet cut, much longer if the Bichon is in show coay. These times do not includethe time it takes to trim the nails( on a weekly basis) and pluck the hair from the ear.
