Bichonlovers are a wonderful breeder. Fern and David are very knowledgeable and guide you through the process of adding a puppy to your family. You can see that the puppies and parents are well taken care of. They send you pictures as the puppies grow and Fern is always available to answer your questions. They provide you with lots of information on how to raise a happy and healthy puppy. It was a wonderful experience.

Extremely knowledgeable and informative, Fern and David at Bichon Lovers helped us in our decision to add our fantastic bichon frise, Freddie, to our family. Since the day that we brought Freddie home, he has been a happy, healthy dog that has been an absolute joy to share our lives with. I highly recommend Bichon Lovers to anyone that is interested in this fun and loveable breed.

My family and I were searching for our newest addition for over a year before I found Fern. I spoke to several breeders who would get very defensive or illusive when I would ask them detailed questions about their lines. Fern always took her time answering my questions and addressing my concerns. I could tell that she is a very dedicated and conscientious breeder who really cares about her dogs and their adoptive families. We picked up our little boy in June of 2017 and he is so healthy, smart and handsome. We get compliments everywhere we go. If you are looking for a healthy dog to adopt then I would highly recommend Fern.

Bichon Lovers are top notch natural breeders! We did a lot of research before we were lucky enough to find exceptional breeders like Fern and David Flett. We were so impressed with their natural, holistic approach to breeding that we knew we had to get our pup from them — even though they are located in Ontario and we live in BC. Fern and David are extremely knowledgeable and they raise their puppies in a loving, healthy environment. It’s just so obvious that they love what they do. We adopted our little boy, Cooper from them last Spring. He's a beautiful, happy, healthy little guy with a wonderful temperament. He loves everyone — especially kids and other dogs. He is so social and outgoing that we are planning to adopt another pup from Bichon Lovers this Spring — a little girl this time — so that Cooper will have a constant companion to play with. We have been very grateful for the excellent, ongoing support we have received from Fern. She is passionate about sharing the latest health information and has provided us with valuable advice that has helped us make informed decisions with regard to our pup’s health care.

    65 Ways Rabies Vaccination Can Harm Your Dog, 12 months ago

  • 65 Ways Rabies Vaccination Can Harm Your Dog
    Skin issues. There are many different types of skin issues, including dermatitis, yeast, alopecia (hair loss), hives, rashes, itchy wrists and ankles (where a lot of dogs chew themselves), abscesses, ear and eye infections and anal gland problems. Skin conditions are never “just skin issues” but are a manifestation of deeper underlying disease. Vaccination can cause allergic reactions because cells in the body called Langerhan cells are constantly scouting for antigen (which the rabies virus is full of). When Langerhan cells detect these foreign invaders (like bacteria or viruses), the body then sends out inflammatory cells to fight off the attacker by creating an allergic reaction.

    A study done in UC Davis and published in February 2013 revealed some startling health consequences of neutered animals, both male and female. The research tracked 759 Golden Retrievers, and looked at early neuter (less than one year of age) vs later neuter (12 months or older) vs intact dogs and five common diseases:
    Hip dysplasia (HD), the arthritis of the hip joint common to dogs
    Cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) damage, the “football injury” of dogs’ knees

    Rabies: A Human Health Law for my Pet?, 2 years ago

  • Img 7148 Fern Flett
  • Rabies: A Human Health Law for my Pet?
    Useful questions to ponder when considering how you will interact with a law that can potentially harm your animal (see Vaccination Safety) are:

    1. Is my animal vaccinated against rabies already?
    2. If so, have I fulfilled the intent of the law to protect humans from my pet giving them rabies?
    3. If immunology shows a long lasting immunity to this viral vaccine, is it in my best interest or my pet’s best interest to continue following this law?
    4. Does anyone go door to door to check on my animals’ rabies vaccine status?
    5. If I choose not to vaccinate repeatedly for rabies, am I putting my animal at risk if he bites someone?

    The last question is what may ultimately scare people into following a law that can make their animal chronically ill. But remember, my goal is to arm you with information so you can act reasonably rather than in fear.

  • So if you’re one of the crazy folks who doesn’t vaccinate their dog, you might not be that crazy after all. Here’s what we do know about vaccines …
    Vaccines have never been proven to be effective.
    Vaccinated populations are proven to be more diseased than unvaccinated.
    Which is pretty ironic when we thought we were giving those vaccines to our dogs to protect them.
    I guess the million dollar question is, what exactly are you protecting them from?

    Several studies prove significant health risks associated with sterilization, 2 years ago

  • Img 7148 Fern Flett
  • Several studies prove significant health risks associated with sterilization, particularly when done at an early age. The most problematic is a delayed closure of the bony growth plates. This results in an abnormal, skeletal development that increases the incidence of orthopaedic problems like hip dysplasia and patellar luxation.
    But by far the most startling news to surface this year is the result of a study that shows that keeping ovaries to the age of six years or later is associated with a greater than 30% increase of lifespan in female Rottweilers.4 Similar studies in humans reinforce this finding. 7,11
    A 30% longer lifespan means that you could have many additional years with your bitch simply by delaying spay surgery until middle-age or later.
    Behavioural studies show that sterilization increases fearfulness, noise phobias and aggression. Other well-documented adverse health effects of de-sexing include increased risk of bone cancer, haemangiosarcoma, hypothyroidism, and cognitive dysfunction in older pets. Sterilization confers an increased susceptibility to infectious disease, and also a higher incidence of adverse reactions tovaccines.10

  • Titre Testing: A Crash Course
    June 7, 2012
    When should you test titers?
    Test titers no sooner than 2 weeks after vaccination. Puppies may be tested before vaccination to establish when maternal immunity wanes and following the last vaccination after 14-16 weeks of age to determine if immunity was established.
    “… even a single dose of modified live virus (MLV) canine core vaccines [distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus] or MLV feline core vaccines [feline parvovirus, feline calicivirus and feline herpesvirus], when administered at 16 weeks or older, could provide long-term immunity [9 years or more] in a very high percentage of animals, while also increasing herd immunity.

    The Power of a Healthy Immune System in Humans and Animals




    How to Feed Your Aging Dog an Anti-Aging Diet, 2 years ago

  • Img 7148 Fern Flett
  • Contrary to what many pet owners and even some veterinarians still believe, studies indicate dogs (and cats) need more protein as they age, not less.
    In 1994, Dr. Delmar Finco, a veterinary nutritionist, discovered protein requirements actually increase as pets age.1 Even in animals with kidney failure, restricting protein doesn't improve their health or longevity.
    Since Dr. Finco's research was published, veterinary recommendations have changed. These days, we recommend that pets struggling with under-functioning kidneys and livers be fed excellent quality protein that is highly digestible and assimilable. We also recommend you restrict phosphorus in the diet, but not necessarily protein.
    We know that dogs, as carnivores, require lots of high quality protein not only to maintain good organ and immune function, but also to maintain healthy muscle mass as they go through life and the aging process.
    Some foods are metabolically stressful and some create low metabolic stress for dogs. Foods that generate the least amount of metabolic stress are whole, raw, organic, non-GMO, and in their natural form. These foods are biologically appropriate. All the moisture in the food remains in the food.
    I recommend serving your older dog food in its natural state to provide needed protein and moisture, and to insure the highest level of biologic assimilation and digestion.

    Come and Get Naturally Immunized!, 2 years ago

  • Ideas Are Infectious: Come and Get Naturally Immunized!
    Read this article only if you are open minded and ready to think for yourself, instead of allowing those who profit from vaccination to continue to influence you.
    Natural Immunity is a reality and is gaining more support with every passing day: http://bit.ly/1nWRPD6
    You know vaccinations are grossly over-provided in our broken system of veterinary medicine. The pushing of vaccinations by Dr. WhiteCoat throughout your animal’s life doesn’t add to her immunity. Not even a little. That’s what we know from veterinary immunologists whose life’s work is measuring and quantifying the immune response. And you know that vaccines are harmful. Chronic disease often follows vaccination, even a single vaccination. Read more at :
