Here are my 2 daschunds...my first small dogs. I usually had a boxer but my wife talked me into going a little smaller. I'm glad she did. These two dogs are fantastic!

When I first knew the girl who became my wife some years ago, she told me that I shouldn't be worried about her parents. Instead, all our chances of a future together would depend on the opinion of Sebastian, her "son", who was 10 years old.... Well, I get the approval of Seba, and we get married some months ago.... Here's the guy who is the REAL boss in our home :

The Bichon family is descended from the Poodle family, hence why they look so similar (especially the coat). If you put enough of them side-by-side you'll notice that the average bichon frisé is smaller than the average poodle, and there are also some distinct differences in the shape of the face (shorter snout being the most prominent difference).

I'm personally not a fan of either. I have several friends and acquaintances with a bichon frisé (or two) and they just don't train well. My first dog was an Italian greyhound/poodle mix, but I don't see myself ever getting a purebred poodle.

Thanks! Now I understand why the last poodle we had "Orion" was completely untrainable. We always thought that he was just stubborn. My father loved him tho death.

Oh that can definitely be part of it too! My beagle, Copper, is fairly well-trained given that we got her at a year old, but anyone who owns a hound knows that those noses have a mind of their own. If she catches a scent of something in the backyard, it doesn't matter what we say or do, she's ignoring you until she finds the origin of that scent. We know she hears/sees us, but that nose is stubborn.

Of course this isn't to say there are "untrainable" dogs. Every dog can be trained (that includes pitbulls, rotties, dobermans, and other breeds people like to hate without knowing what they're talking about), but in my experience some smaller breeds are a little more touch-and-go as far as training goes unfortunately.

As long as you use positive reinforcement training techniques this is correct. Some dogs are more stubborn than others but repetition usually gets them a breakthrough. Sometimes it is a question of who is going to give up first, the dog or the owner.

You know the old way of training a dog was just to beat him into submission. There still are people out there like that. But over time research has found that positive reinforcement results in a better all around dog and faster results. Fortunately the word is getting out to everyone that this is the way to go.

As you can see he is quite the opposite from his mother. Were she has the typical cat attitude and disappears sometimes hiding on the roof until I get home. He is very Mellow usually just sits around house most of the time.

Her nickname is Piglet along with her small size and short curly tail she also make grunting noises sounding more like a pig than a dog.

Meet Daisy. Technically owned by one of my friends who is the first to say it is my dog   She was part of my daily walks until she move early this month.

Picture is from 4th of July when we had an afternoon neighborhood fireworks session. She didn't like it much so stayed close to the house for comfort. Ten minutes later she was comfortable enough to walk up to where we were sitting by the street.

My parents have a Beagle (rescued from a lab when he was a puppy - they are the only dogs that can be used for experiments) and they are smart, but completely untrainable, particularly if there is food involved. Sometimes I swear he understands what people are telling him and just doesn't care. It is no wonder they are the dogs used by the Agriculture Department in the U.S. to find out if people are smuggling food into the country at airports and border crossings - might not be good for much else (you might be carrying half a ton of cocaine laced with TNT stuffed down your underwear and it will not care for a second), but just you try to bring in an illegal sausage into the country and, man, you are in trouble.

And Sammy has an exceptionally nice personality even though he is the head of our dog pack. He is very lovable and loyal with humans and likes most other dogs.
