It is imperative that the Bichon undergo 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 thorough brushing at least once a week. Daily brushing is much better, if done on a daily basis it will take approximately 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 $ 30 and $ 60. Pet or show cut Bichons may need to be bathed in between grooming appointments. First, brush and comb them out completely 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 coat. These times do not include the time it takes to trim the nails( on a weekly basis) and pluck the hair from the ear. And regarding a good place .... it really depends on your location, you should see what choices do you have in your local area.

Good Luck.
