Shichon Teddy Bear Puppies
If you’re thinking of introducing a new companion to your home, we have an adorable litter of teddy bear puppies for sale in Indiana. These designer dogs have the captivating personalities of their parents, the Shih Tzu and the Bichon Frise. They boast the luxurious long fluffy coat of the former with the lack of shedding associated with the latter, making them a good option for people suffering from allergies.
Sometimes called a Zuchon, Shichon or Tzu Frise or Shihpoo, these adorable puppies make well-mannered and sweet-natured additions to families with children over 6, retired seniors and those with special needs.
History of the Breed
So-called because of their resemblance to the teddy bears we all had as children, these cuties were originally bred as therapy dogs in the early 2000s. These gentle pups that resemble toys were the perfect dogs for handicapped children. They shower humans with kisses and adoration without any of the worries that may be associated with a larger dog.
Bichons are known for having an independent streak and being endlessly curious about the world around them. A teddy bear Shichon, on the other hand, places more importance on their human, their number one priority is staying loyally by the side of their owner. They were intended to be small and cuddly toy dogs but without the yappiness of other small mixed breeds (and potential anxiety that come along with it).
Personality and Temperament
This healthy crossbreed brings out all of the best traits of its famous purebred parents. With their round saucer-like eyes and button noses, these pups are as lovely on the inside as they look on the outside. They are gentle and empathetic and tend to form deep bonds with the entire family instead of focusing mainly on one person. They adore children and are more than comfortable living in a home with other dogs as well as cats.
As long as you have plenty of patience and train them early, they can make excellent apartment dogs. They aren’t “needy” attention seekers and will patiently wait for you to finish what you’re doing without demanding your time. They still like to be with someone for most of the day and won’t enjoy being left alone for long periods. If you’re looking for a canine pal to get active and take out on walks to meet people, a teddy bear dog will be perfect for you.

Training a Teddy Bear Pup
To train your precious little teddy bear breed, there are three main things you’ll need: patience, consistency and tasty treats. Using bundles of praise for a job well done, as well as yummy tidbits, reinforces good behavior. A firm “no” without losing your patience is the only aversion tactic you’ll need to use. Be sure to repeat the positive affirmation for every demonstration of good behavior and persistently say no to unwanted actions.
