Overview
A favorite of the Japanese court, this breed could only be owned by members of the Japanese Imperial family, and were often offered as a royal gift. In 1853 the Japanese Chin became exceedingly popular when a pair of this elegant breed was given to Queen Victoria. In 1964 they were honored as one of Japan's national symbols. Originally named the Japanese Spaniel, the AKC changed the name in 1977. Today the Japanese Chin has a small following in the United States, but remains highly adored in Japan.
Character
Japanese Chins are a fine-boned, dainty breed with a square shape. They have an inquisitive expression with an Oriental appearance. This breed is a true aristocrat; lively and high stepping. They were originally bred to be a pampered companion and maintain that role today.

Does your Japanese Chin 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
This breed is very intelligent, loving, and pleasant. They are also affectionate, mild mannered, and playful. The Japanese Chin is very adept at mirroring the moods of those around them. They are deeply devoted to their master and love everyone. With their gentle and sensitive demeanor, this breed is best suited for homes with older children. They are good with other dogs and pets. Although they are not an excessive barker, they make good watchdogs. They thrive on being the center of attention. This is a breed that is full of courage with a mind of their own. Graced with an excellent memory, they have definite likes and dislikes and never forget a friend or foe. The Japanese Chin, as a family pet is unrivaled.
Care
The Japanese Chin requires daily gentle combing and brushing to keep the coat free from tangles. They must be combed and brushed in a specific manner, so a lesson from a professional dog groomer is recommended. Bathe only when necessary, and dry shampoo occasionally. The eyes and ears need to be cleaned and checked on a daily basis. As is the case in many short-muzzle breeds, the Japanese Chin is prone to respiratory problems. They also have a tendency toward eye infections and heat prostration.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Japanese Chin's coat is thick, straight, long, and silky. The fur is more profuse around the neck and chest. The ears and tail are feathered. Their fine coat stands off the body and is white in color with patches of black, yellow, sable, orange, brindle, and red. This breed is an average shedder.
Training
The Japanese Chin is much more obedient that most of the other toy breeds. They are eager to please, so training is done quite easily. This breed excels at learning and performing tricks. Since they are sensitive and mild mannered harsh training methods must never be used. They respond best to gentle, loving, fair, and consistent methods. Basic obedience is recommended. 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 Japanese Chin puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
This breed requires a minimal amount of exercise. They enjoy a short walk or play session daily. They are perfectly suited for apartment or condominium dwelling, but will also benefit from having the opportunity to play in a small securely fenced yard. It is very important to remember that the Japanese Chin is highly sensitive to temperature extremes. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Is it alright to groom a Japanese Chin puppy in the summer.I l live in Charleston SC and the summers can be very hot.

You can groom your dog any time of the year. But if you are asking about shaving, you can do that in the summer to keep your dog cool over the warmer months.

I am wanting to breed my female Japanese chin one time and then get her fixed. Do you know how I could find a male Japanese chin to mate her with? I am not wanting to purchase another dog.

Unless you are a reputable breeder or are under the study of one, you shouldn't be breeding. Breeding dogs is very dangerous for the dam, sire and the puppies. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, has passed all temperament and health checks and has titles in confirmation and/or has shown he/she is capable of doing what the breed was made for, the dog should be spayed/neutered. Having a litter of puppies does nothing to help your dog, but can instill the possibility of getting mammary cancer later on in life. Please just get her fixed so that she can live a happy, healthy and long life with you.

The recommendation used to be to have one litter then get them spayed. That is not the case today. Most Veterinarians recommend spaying before the first heat cycle so get your girl spayed and not bred. Whelping is very risky and you could lose your beloved pet by breeding her. Please leave the breeding up to the experienced breeders.

They are absolutely correct! I bred our Shih Tzu and almost lost her and the pups! I would not recommend breeding yours! They are telling you the truth. When you go through a scare like I did, you will be thankful you listened to them!

I bred mine one time and it worked out fine! Got her spayed like 6years later and had no problems! Good luck, pups are so fun and easily adopted.

Why does a Japanese Chin have different colors?

The Japanese Chin's coat color can be either black and white, sable (black and white with tan points), or red and white. These colors can vary in intensity (such as lemon and white, mahogany and white). The coloration of the dog is not for any purpose but for aesthetic reasons. In making the Japanese Chin breed, several colors were standardized by the several Kennel Clubs that accepted the Japanese Chin as a breed.

There is a fourth color/pattern recognized in the US, black and white with tan points.

What is the average lifespan of a Japanese Chin? Do males tend to live longer?

4 Comments

Sadly, the Japanese Chin is known to live under 10 years of age on average. Because of breeding issues, the dogs don't tend to live as long as other small breeds that live an average of 15 - 17 years. There are no reports as to whether males or females live longer. It is all in the breeding/linage of the dog and what food the dog is fed over it's life-time.

My Japanese Chin lived to be 14 1/2 years old.

Mine have often lived to 14 years and my customer's Japanese Chins have an average lifespan of about 14-15 years. If they are well bred, healthy, happy, have good conformation, and are well cared for, they will outlive many of the other breeds. I see very few health problems in the Japanese Chin breed. They are a hardy, athletic, people pleasing breed. They are the best kept secret in the dog world.

I'd tend to agree with the breeder above. Mine have been around 14 years old and virtually free of health problems. Actually my stud dog is now 12 and was still a breeder before I retired him. He's in great condition but does get plenty of fresh air and exercise. My Mother dogs also have lived healthy, long lives. I believe the way puppies are raised until the time you adopted it, directly relates to the health and longevity of your Japanese Chin.

Many things can affect price such as bloodlines, color, size, etc. The main thing is buy from a reputable breeder and get a healthy puppy. My puppies start around $1,000 and up.
