Yeah. My dog is a Yorkie Bichon, but he mostly has the bichon hair so he gets groomed every month. Usually every 4-6 weeks, especially since we want to keep the puppy cut on him, then he's so cute. :3 But I still give him a bath between the groomings as he sleeps with me. I do brush his teeth as well.
This is about as long as his hair gets, although it might be a bit longer now. This was last week and he's getting groomed on Monday.
Then this is usually what he looks like after grooming. Quite a difference, mind you these are about 4 weeks apart.
So I can't imagine what a full on bichon would like like without proper grooming.
