Chow Chow Info & Chow Chow Breeders

The Chow Chow is a type of dog breed originally from China, where it is referred to as Songshi Quan, which means "puffy-lion dog".  Most commonly kept as pets, Chow Chows tend to display discernment of strangers and can become fiercely protective of their owners and property.  They are sometimes overly protective of one or two main family member(s).


Chow Chows are not excessively active but if living in an apartment they will need daily exercise to prevent restlessness and boredom.


 It is in the breed’s nature to be quiet and well behaved. However, it is also resistant to training.  Training them when they are puppies is so crucial so that they gain respect for those who care for them and in order to avoid aggressive and over-protectiveness as an adult. When Chow Chows have reached adolescence they reject authority from anyone who hasn't earned its admiration.


Aggression can be one distinctive behavioural characteristic in this breed, though many are known to be easy-going in nature - sometimes adopting an aloof disposition to individuals other than their owners. Aggression when it does appear is often towards other dogs of the same sex, especially other Chows. Due to their strong hunting instincts, it is recommended that these dogs stay fenced, leashed, and away from cats and small dogs. This is why it is crucial that they are socialized early and consistently.


The breed does not do well in hot humid weather. It can live outdoors in temperate or cool weather, but it is best allowed to stay inside during warm weather. The smooth type needs brushing once weekly; the rough type needs brushing every other day, and daily when shedding.
