which puppy is better yorkie poo or bichon?


I want a small lap dog who is low maintenance. Although, I am aware that a puppy takes more time, but I want to know which is a better overall puppy to have and which one is better at training to be house broken?

I have a Bichon Frise and also a Bichon Frise/Yorkie mix. They are both wonderful dogs- playful yet calm, very easy to train and housebreak, and they are very friendly. They love attention and are never aggressive. They are very calm, yet playful when it comes to toys. For whoever said that small dogs were hard to housebreak, I agree. However, this is not the case with all small dogs. My Chihuahua was hard to housebreak, but my Bichons got the hang of it on their own. They really are sweet, cuddly, cute dogs, and you won’t regret getting one if you do.

EDIT: My Bichons were NOT hard to train. I taught them both several tricks such as shake, sit, lie down, roller over, sit up, stay, and speak with ease. Whoever said that they are hard to train obviously does not have actual experience. They truly are the best dogs I’ve ever had.

Bichon are notoriously hard to train. They are also getting on the bigger size for a lap dog. yorkie poos are actually a mixed breed, which means less health problems in the future, and they usually are easier to train. Although both are beautiful animals, if you want a best friend that will be well behaved, you will have an easier time with the yorkie poo than the bichon.

I do not know much about Bichons. Yorkies are alot of fun to have around, and they got great little personalities, plus training them is suppose to be a joy.
I would say go with the yorkie.

A Yorkie Poo is not a breed. Since they are only bred by irresponsible back yard breeders and puppy mills using sub-standard dogs, I would suggest either getting a Yorkie, or a Toy Poodle or a Bichon

None of these breeds are low-maintenance. All require lots of grooming. Might want to consider a short haired breed.

Here is a list ranked by ease of training

puppy yorkie poo bichon

ok with me being a vet tech and you asking about a low maintenance dog you have choose 2 dogs that have to be groomed very often…..But the best one over all if you dont care about the grooming then you should pick the bichon. because the yorkies are cute but very anoying..bark alot! bichons are loving and calm pets thats easy to train.. yorkies and **** tuz’s are the hardest to train out of your dogs. Good luck

It has been my experience that smaller breeds of dogs are not “low Maintenance” (trust me I know from experience) so either way. Both breeds will require moderate to high grooming unless you plan on shaving them. A lot of Bichons have skin allergies and a lot of Yorkies are notoriously hard to housebreak. A Yorkipoo is actually a mixed breed, Yorkshire Terrier and Poodle cross, so you may get less to no health issues. If you want a pet that you don’t really have to put much effort in to get a gerbil.

The Bichon would be a little milder mannered. The Yorky Poo Though cuter would be pretty high strung.
