The Bichon Frise is the descendant of an Italian Water Spaniel, the same breed that sparked the popularity of the Poodle and the Maltese breeds. Bichon Frise were originally known as the Bichon Tenerife, known for their cheery and loving demeanor. They commonly traveled with sailors and used as items for trade. From the 1300’s to the 1800’s, this breed was known to be a favorite it royal families of the world. After falling off the grid, the breed was re-established after World War I, recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1972. Cocker Spaniels are classified as a type of gun dog, but have been assisting hunters long before guns existed. In England, Land Spaniels were bred to retrieve fallen birds and weak animals to their owners. In the current climate, American Cocker Spaniels are bred to be companion animals and house pets.
