Reconstructor, Moisture plus, Texturizing mist and Maxi Care are still in Production

Bichon Frise


The texture of the coat is of utmost importance. The undercoat is soft and dense, the outer coat of a coarser and curlier texture. The combination of the two gives a soft but substantial feel to the touch which is similar to plush or velvet and when patted springs back. When bathed and brushed, it stands off the body, creating an overall powder puff appearance. A wiry coat is not desirable. A limp, silky coat, a coat that lies down, or a lack of undercoat are very serious faults. 



Gentle mannered, sensitive, playful and affectionate. A cheerful attitude is the hallmark of the breed and one should settle for nothing less. 




RECONSTRUCTOR – Conditioner 


Problem   Solution 
Detangling/Dematting  Apply full strength Moisture Plus liberally to the mat. Wait 15 minutes. Pull mat gently apart with fingers or comb. Another approach is to shampoo, rinse and dry the coat first. Then apply Moisture plus full
strength, let sit 10-15 min. and blow out rather than work with fingers.
Dry, damaged Coat   Our version of a hot oil treatment: Wet dog with warm water, apply Moisture Plus liberally. Wrap in hot towel for 15-20 minutes. Shampoo with Moisturizing Shampoo and rinse.
Dingy White Coat Use Cleansing Shampoo on the first lather, wait 5 minutes then rinse.
Follow with Texturizing Shampoo lather and rinse.
Increase Under Coat Use Reconstructor routinely at bath time while coat is developing
Breakage From Friction  Between shows, spray with dilute mixture of water and Moisture Plus (5:1) before wrapping and rewrapping
Reduce Scissor Marks  Mix Super Coat 50/50 with water. Spray lightly into damp coat and blow dry. Refresh as needed by spraying above the dog and allowing mist to all onto coat
Spot Whitening/ Urine Stains  Use a small amount of Cleansing Shampoo full strength, wait 5 minutes and rinse
