Not only do they not shed, but they have little dander (unlikely to cause allergies).
The only bad thing is they require lots of expensive grooming, if you don't want to pay that much
I would buy a clipper and learn how to use it yourself.

They also curl up the moment they get wet which, like poodles, makes them knot easily.
They require lots of brushing, and make sure you take good care of his teeth.

Being the owner of a little white dog, I recommend Double K Groomer's Edge Midnight White Shampoo.
They also have a new one called Alpha White which is supposed to be excellent, haven't tried yet because I can't find it.

Also, in the sun I recommend an SPF because their skin is very pale and they can get sunburned.
As he ages, make sure you watch his coat (as most I have seen end up with skin problems).

Expect his eyes to get cloudy as he ages, they normally start early in bichons. Watch out for his hips, as
they genetically get hip problems and get him a harness instead of a collar. They are prone to collapsed
trachea, a weakening of the throat which will make them sound like a honking goose with the tiniest pressure.
They also do this backwords cough, it's like a hacking noise like they're about to throw up. They do this when
they get over excited, after eating, if they drink too fast, during a bath, pretty much alot of times.

I think I hit the basics on bichons, LOL.
