While Bichon Frise and Bichon Havanese are both members of the 'Bichon' family, they certainly aren't the same breed, any more than a Springer Spaniel and a Cocker Spaniel are the same breed.

While the correct nomenclature is certainly Bichon Frise or Bichon Havanese, in common useage in US dog circles and competition, they are routinely referred to as either Bichon or Havanese.

The fact that most don't refer to their dog as a Bichon Havanese certainly does not indicate they are ignorant of the fact.

There are about 8 breeds that are considered Bichons. The only breeders recognized by the AKC are Maltese, Havanese and Bichon Frise.

Do you homework before you show your ignorance. PLEASE!
You forgot another AKC breed that is also part of the Bichon family. Know which one that is?

The Havanese is NOT a Cuban Bichon Frise. Havanese have developed over hundreds of years and are a significantly different and unique breed compared to the Bichon Frise. The name Bichon Havanese is not generally even used.

They are not AKC approved breeds, yet.

Bolognese and Cotons are not in the AKC. I'm pretty sure Kathy is talking about the Maltese.

Was this meant for everyone on this board? You're so offensive! I know the Havanese is also the Bichon Havanais--duh!
