VetStreet also names the Bichon frise one of the happiest dog breeds. “Wonderfully affectionate, he can spread love and joy to everyone he meets,” the publication notes. “Few people are immune to his clownish charm.” The AKC notes that you’ll need to devote some time to making sure your Bichon gets enough exercise each day. However, the group promises that the breed’s “short bursts of energy are balanced with cuddly, loveable periods.”
