Breeders: Bichon Bolognese

The Bolognese belongs to a family of dogs that include the Bichon Frise, Maltese, Havanese, and Coton de Tulear. These breeds have a similar appearance and very similar temperament and behavior. Of the group, some breeders believe that the Bolognese is the brightest thinker and problem solver.

He is also, by far, the hardest of those breeds to find.

Devoted and attentive, the Bolognese shadows his owner possessively and is such a skilled reader of body language and expression that he often appears telepathic.


Indeed, this breed doesn’t do well without a great deal of companionship. If you’re home all day and looking for a lap buddy, consider this breed. Otherwise, the dog will be lonely and unhappy.

Quick to learn and responsive to gentle training, some Bolognese do well in competitive obedience and agility.
