Bichon Frise Pekingese Mix Temperament and Personality

The Bichon Frise Pekingese Mix temperament, while sweet, has aspects to it that may make him a not-so-ideal dog for everyone.

He’s a Barker

If excessive barking drives you crazy, then you may not be a huge fan of the Peke-a-Chon.

This is a dog who loves to hear himself bark.

While this may annoy your neighbors, especially if you live in an apartment, this trait actually makes the Peke-a-Chon a fantastic watchdog.

Though, while it definitely has its good sides, you should still teach your Peke-a-Chon that there is a time and place for barking.

He Loves You…to a Fault

The Peke-a-Chon loves his owners so much that he can’t stand to be away from them for too long.
