I see a lot of people who are breeding their Bichons here. I thought I would ask if you guys have knowledge of your dogs' COI?  It's an easy way to know the likelihood of passing on genetic disorders. If you're trying to help the breed to be better and breed responsibly, one should have knowledge of it.  Here is a link that talks more about  it.

Sherry, sad to say, but there are now very few active posters on this board, and not one in my recollection has mentioned breeding their fluffs. Most of the posters are longtime owners with older dogs, so we hear mostly about operations and recuperation.  I do hope that you get responses to your posts, but please don't be offended if you don't. I myself am a non-owner who has considered getting a bichon frise. and so i can't claim the slightest bit of competence or knowledge.

Sherry, many on these boards, like me, are involved in rescue.  So we are not the least bit interested in breeding. 

Responsible breeders are active with the breed in either conformation, or agility, or some such.  They have detailed charts on each dog's heredity. The folks on this forum supported responsible breeders; not hobby breeders.

And as Craig mentioned, sadly folks rarely post on here any longer.
