Overview
The Chow Chow is an ancient breed that originated in China more than 2000 years ago. They were an all purpose breed used for hunting, herding, pulling, and protection. They are commonly referred to as "the Chow", and are now used primarily as a companion.
Character
The Chow Chow is a true masterpiece of dignity and beauty. They possess the unique characteristic of having a blue-black tongue. They are keenly intelligent, have an independent spirit, and display a dignified demeanor. The Chow is extremely aloof and discerning.

Does your Chow Chow bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Chow Chow is most generally polite and patient. They are very loyal and friendly with their family, but exceedingly reserved with strangers. They most often will become attached and overly protective of one particular member of the family. They are bossy, serious, and obstinate. The Chow Chow is a very dominant breed that requires a dominant owner. They are stubborn and have a mind of their own. They are not good with other pets unless they have been raised with them from an early age. They get along well with older well-behaved children. The Chow expects to be treated with respect.
Care
The Chow Chow requires daily brushing. Proper grooming is essential to keep their coat in peak condition. Bathe or dry shampoo as necessary. They are prone to such health issues as entropin, heat prostration, allergies, skin problems, and hip dysplasia. They have a very low tolerance to anesthesia. The Chow does not do well in warm climates.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Chow Chow has an abundant and profuse double coat that comes in two different varieties: smooth or rough. The fur is particularly thick around the neck area and resembles a lion's mane. The outer coat is coarse and is supported by a dense under coat. The most common coat colors are red, black, blue, tan, and gray. They are never parti-colored. The Chow is a heavy seasonal shedder.
Training
The Chow Chow requires intense, extensive, and ongoing training in both socialization and obedience. They are relatively easy to housebreak. However, they will only perform tasks that make sense to them. They need to be taught at an early age as to who the master is or they will take over. They require firmness, fairness, and consistency. They do not respond to harshness or a heavy-handed approach and will become aggressive if treated in a disrespectful manner. The Chow is highly talented as a watchdog or guard dog. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Chow Chow puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Chow Chow has a tendency to be lazy. They prefer to stay indoors where they are relatively inactive. They enjoy a small securely fenced yard, but cannot remain outside for extended periods of time in hot weather. They benefit from short daily walks. The Chow is well suited for apartment dwelling provided they are given sufficient exercise. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

hi ~ I have a beautiful male chow...he's about a year old ~ I was trying to comb him real well and get all that falling out undercoat out this past Sunday that is all over the place...and noticed later that day that I had made a bald spot on the top of his back?? Will the hair grow back? Is this something anyone else has done? I feel so bad....

If there is a bald spot on your dog, it means that there was no top coat or outer coat hairs there after you took the under coat out. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but it isn't a good thing either. His hair should grow back, but if you do not see any hair growing back within a week; it is time for a vet visit.

Hi I love this board so very informative! I have a three-year old unaltered female Chow raised with two male and female toy Poodle siblings. My Chow has poodle-like character traits and some of her behaviors are like a smaller dog. I don't mind at all she has learned to be gentle most of the time with the Poodles and they know how to dodge her. She, however, tries to play learned to but she tries to play more roughly with me. I'd like to get a male Chow pup as a companion and playmate for her. I have owned Chows much of my life and took a long break after my two 15 and 16 year old Chows passed. I'm please share any advice on how to integrate the new puppy into my household of 3 dogs. I am a first time poodle parent.

Congratulations on your daughter having a baby. As per your pup, make sure that the pup is well socialized to all baby items/smells. Bring out the things the baby will be using at your home and use them with a pretend doll when you get your puppy. Play video's of babies crying on you-tube so your pup gets used to the noise. When the baby arrives and is over at the home, make sure the pup is well exercised. As well; have a quiet area the pup can go too to get away from all the fuss of the baby/noise where she won't be able to wake the baby either if she barks.

I have always had Chow Chows. If they are raised with the child there is not a better protector.

What are the best Chow Chow ages to play?

Chow Chows are great dogs that can be playful their entire lives. Though they tend to slow down after 3 years old into a calmer dog. But you can play with your Chow anytime as long as the play is not during a really hot part of the day and the dog is interested in playing with you.

I have a 12 week old Chow puppy, he's sweet and polite however I've had a hard time training him. Any suggestions?

At 12 weeks old, your pup has had all of it's shots. So I would suggest contacting your local Positive Reinforcement trainer and going to obedience classes. Chow Chow's are known to be stubborn and hard to train, they need firm but gentle handlers that know how to use body language to teach the commands they want their dog to learn.

I raised Chows for 15 years. They are playful and are very smart. They only have to be shown things once. My Chow's were all potty trained by 3wks and are the smartest dogs I've ever had. Never hit them when training and take them out every hour on the hour until potty trained. Sit on the floor with your pup and let him know you love him. If your dog is kinda wild then hold them down and show you are the boss (a little at a time).

First off, don't hold your dog down. You should want them to respect you, not fear you. (Respect and fear are two different things. Also, they don't appear similar.) That could also lead to aggression or shutting down. I think you should want a sweet and polite dog. Also, you could try obedience classes.

I had a wild chow and one time I was playing with her, she got a little carried away so I was gentle but held her down by laying on her she fought for a bit but then relaxed. Ever since she never leaves my feet and looks to me for approval before she even steps out the door and with all things. It was night and day difference. She loves everyone and hardly ever barks.

In all the many breeds I have had since I was very young, the Chow Chow definitely is a different personality; however, they are the dog and you are the master. Don't mistake love for over-indulgence and weakness in the sight of the animal. Dogs already instinctively know who you are by your character and personality . . . so they are not going to mistake your actions and your intent. They know if you mean them harm . . . they may not like you dominating them and demanding their obedience, which can be done without physical assault, they will respond . . . and likewise, you will instinctively know them. This is the bond between master and pet. The line should not be blurred between the two. As far as the pet and human baby becoming friends . . . the dog must understand that the baby is not under the dog's authority, but rather, the child is also an extension of you as the master. There is nothing finer in training a child about unconditional love than with a devoted pet; however, raising a child and a pet as being “equals” is both insulting to the child and even dangerous to the child. I loved my pets, but they are never to be put above a human being, for no matter how much they are loved, they are not equal to human beings despite current philosophies.
