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.

I don't have a chow chow but I might be able to get one and I wanted to know, I have 2 birds, 1 other dog, 2 rabbits, and a cat. Would the chow chow get along with them?

Chow Chow's are not a breed of dog for everyone. They are prone to dog-on-dog aggression and can have a prey drive. It is best to get a Chow Chow when they are a puppy to ensure that you can socialize the pup to your other dog, and other pets. If the dog you are possibly able to get is an adult, unless the dog has been socialized with other dogs and pets; you may want to take a second thought. Make sure your dog and the Chow Chow meet on neutral ground and you have the means to keep the Chow Chow from getting too/possibly harming your birds, rabbits and cat.

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.

We have had 7 chow pups so far in all our yrs. So we know and love the breed. We have a new situation. We just lost our girl at age 15. We have a 13 1/2 male. We are getting a female pup in 5 wk. My daughter is having a baby. In Oct. we will be full time baby sitters for 4 days a wk. What do we need to know so the 2 will grow up together?

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.
