Re: Menino

Your answer should be to simply keep your dog on his regular routine. Let those that are accepting realize how well socialized he is and let them meet the dog. They will be the ones that change the perception. I have 3 Chows at the moment. They are the stars of the neighborhood. Everyone seems to ha...

Re: Has anyone purchased a chow chow from D&M Farm?

Maybe it means nothing, but did anyone else notice that all of the positive posts that have suddenly appeared on this post are by 20 or so members that joined the forum on the same day.

Re: Pet injured......

No idea what to make of this post. Buying a dog at a show that requires fur cutting and cleaning is suspect enough. And then to describe the dog as a Pug while showing a Chow pic? And finally not being sure if a dog that was attacked by raccoons requires vet attention? Did the raccoons suddenly appe...

Re: Buying a chow

I looked at the website that I could find. My 1st reaction is that the prices they list are unrealistically low. That in itself may not be a problem, but purebred Chows of any decent quality can fetch a minimum of $1500 in the US. So they are way below market. That may sound great, but who is giving...

Timely post considering recent news that Pepto-Bismol recently added Xylitol to their formula. Xylitol is a sugar substitute that is poisonous to dogs, but FACT CHECK reveals that it the formula has not changed. Best to just be careful about what is left lying about.

Re: aggression towards roommate... please advise

Sadly its a fairly common story with Chows. They do tend to be loyal to an individual person. You rescued a dog from someone who was single and then joined a family. The adjustment is difficult for Chows even without the added pressure of a child who tugs/pulls/corners. The result there is not all t...

I would say energy level is still individual. My Smooth is a rocket ship. He is constantly looking to go when he is getting attention, but relaxes quite a bit too. His father is a true floor mat.

Re: grooming

Trim and shape the fur around the paws. Trim between the paw pads. That's it. Occasionally you may need to cut a mat, but with regular grooming it shouldn't be necessary. Never shape any other areas or shave down. Do not cut the Guard Hairs...ever. You can thin the butt area with a rake if it gets t...

Sorry for the late response, I haven't been on in a bit. Nice citation of the breed specifics, but that didn't come close to answering the question. Hopefully you know the description of the Chow breed at this point. Some breeders will give you a bit of a going home package, with a collar, leash, an...

Well, that is a lot of questions, but they all really go back to the same thing, so hear ya go... How often they need to be brushed depends on environment more than anything. It is hot and humid, or cool? Is he playing in the mud? Whatever the answer there, I would plan on at least once a week. It h...

Re: Should I get chow chow?

Maybe a bit late to the party, but I will add my 15 cents anyway. Regardless of what 'might' happen in the future with family acceptance, you should not get a dog (Chow or other) with the thought that it will be banished to living outside and not accepted as a member of the household. Chows in parti...

Re: 911!!!!

I don't really see it in the pic. But if you are really worried about it, know that the mask tends to fade as the dog ages. Young Chows will have a black masking that will fade. Maybe not 100%, but it will blend. Also, that darker coloring is actually a good thing. Cream Chows tend to lose the black...

Re: Hello! Looking To Adopt!

Very nice to see your post. Welcome! I think adopting out of the Houston area once you locate is a fantastic idea. Hope that works. I would offer a word of caution about relocating chows. If they are used to cooler climates they have trouble adjusting to the temp changes. I think local is better. Th...

Absolutely love the idea of promoting the Chow breed, as others have said. But I have owned Chows for over 20 years and have always discouraged my children from costuming the dogs. I have always told them that Chows are a proud breed and should not be subjected to such things. In my house we even ca...

This is tough. I did a search on Chow Chow Inc, which houses the registry for Chow pedigrees and didn't find anything.

Re: Cream chow chow nose colour

Constantina is correct. It is not a medical reason. It is simply a lack of pigment in the cream gene. Very few Cream Chows carry the black nose and mouth to adulthood. And those that do are very desirable to breeders. To my knowledge, there are no supplements that can help maintain the pigment. Some...
