Welcome to Honeychon Puppies! After breeding Bichon Frise for 20+ years, I have decided to add a little ‘color’ to my life. The Honeychon is a combination of Havanese and Bichon Frise. Where did the name of Honeychon come from you ask. Every now and then with my Bichon Frise breeding program, I would get a beautiful little puppy that had a ‘honey’ color to their coat. My first time with this coloring, I showed to my son and his girlfriend – she instantly said “Oh – a Honeychon”. So several years later – here we are.

Our choice of parents for the Honeychon puppy is taken with a great amount of care and research. Each combination is done with the individual Honeychon parents in mind – what type of personality do they have, are they comparable in size, and genetic strength. With each set of Honeychon parents, our goal is to bring out the positive qualities of each breed producing a beautiful hypo-allergenic, non-shedding fluff of joy.

The Honeychon is a playful and loving hybrid dog that loves company with a hypo-allergenic coat that makes it a great dog for families, elderly couples, or those with pet dander allergies. Let’s take a closer look at the breed information and facts surrounding this breed.

Origin
Honeychons are a hybrid dog originating from a cross between a Bichon Frise and Havanese. Most Honeychon owners find that this unique hybrid tends to look more like a Bichon but carries more personality traits of the Havanese. The Honeychon coloring has a wide range of possibilities and their non-shedding coat makes them a great dog for anyone with allergy issues.

Size
Honeychons are a small dog by standard definitions. On average, they range from 9-12 inches tall and weigh 8-15 pounds. Depending on the genetic mix coming from a Honeychon’s parents, its coat can range in length.

Grooming Needs
As a long-haired dog, a Honeychon will need regular grooming and trims to keep its fur healthy and shiny. You will need to brush and clean your Honeychon’s coat two times a week. As your Honeychon matures, make sure to get its coat trimmed and maintain a regular brushing and cleaning schedule every week. Pay attention to where your dog’s fur grows faster and irritates them, and make sure to trim or pluck hotspots (paws, pads, ears, around the eyes) regularly. As for shampoos, aim for any brand that will nourish your Honeychon’s locks and pay attention to the natural oils in your dog’s skin. Some Honeychons are naturally less oily than others and may also require a conditioner as well.

Apart from coat maintenance, a Honeychon will also need to have its nails clipped regularly and ears checked on a bi-weekly basis. Their ear hair grows faster than most dogs and can tangle and cause nasty infections.

Character
The Honeychon is a smart dog, which can translate to both stubbornness and playfulness depending on the situation or its owners. Overwhelming, though, they are very friendly and loving small dogs that make a great companion for children and elderly owners.

Temperament
Most Honeychon owners find that their small hybrid dog is an energetic bundle of happy and intelligent energy. Honeychons enjoy playing, solving puzzles, being with a family, and exploring. However, at times their intelligence will turn into stubbornness that can lead to them misbehaving. While not natural leaders, if given enough leeway, a Honeychon will assert itself as Alpha and ignore your lead. Keep a calm and confident authority with your Honeychon – both remaining strict with your commands but playful and present for everyday moments.

Training Needs
As Honeychons are naturally curious and clever dogs, they will take easily to training both as young puppies and well into their adult years. With a clear alpha in place, a Honeychon will happily follow its owners lead and do its best to learn and listen to commands.

Activity Level
A Honeychon will need at least one long walk per day and ample amounts of play time – either in a fenced in yard, with other dogs, or in an open room indoors with toys or games to stimulate their mind. They have plenty of energy, so make sure you can commit to this level of activity.
