(Affenpinscher and Bichon Frise mix) The Affenchon is not a pure bred, but a hybrid mix of Affenpinscher and Bichon Frise. The Affenchon was introduced in the 1990\'s. Due to their timid nature, they tend to bark quite a bit. But they do well around other pets. Caution should be taken around children as this dog is quite small and could be hurt in rough play.

The Bichon Frise can be found as far back as the fifteenth century. They have been owned by Royalty as well as servicemen from WWI. The combination of these two breeds make for a great family pet.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
