Re: 3 Chow Chow females a recipe for disaster?

Our three girls (all chows) got along perfectly till about a year ago when Bramble and Isla began to argue and then to fight to the point that Bramble put Isla in the vets several times even though we took great care with pack leader etc and they were all well trained. I always said it would not ha...

Re: Post Patella Luxation and Surgery Care

Six days in, going for a bandage change today. She refuses to pee for a good four days and still have poo since coming home. We foresee this to be the biggest challenge ahead, as she's trained to do her business on the pee tray inside the toilet at home and has always been shy about this, and only d...

Re: My dog, Mimi bit my dad and now he seems hostile against

Don't have good advise, but I can relate to what happened. It seems like my chow does the same thing too, short of biting. My chow would rush to the door whenever she hears the lock turning, on a brightly lit scenario, she will rush towards me and wags her tail all excited. However, if the apartment...

I bought the thunder shirt, it was useful for the first two thundery weather and pretty useless now. They are fine most time, even eating together during meal time. My spitz gets aggressive with ribs or milk bones, but fine with main course (home cooked chicken/beef with brown rice). Just a crazy th...

Hi, I have an almost 3 years old chow chow (spayed) and a 3.5 years old japanese spitz (spayed). I had my spitz a year before I got my chow and they have been doing well for almost two years. They didn't start off well though, my spitz constantly fight with my chow when she was just 4-5months old (S...

Such a nice story...

Mine will give the "puss in boots" look while wiggling her tail softly when I reprimand her for silly things she did. It just makes you stop and give her a hug instead.

Hi, Been trying to understand more about the difference between the Open/Close Face and Rough/Smooth Coat too. The place where I got her says she's pure bred, however most of the time, the vet tech and some helpers from pet welfare organization will say that my mix has some chow in it. I reckon mine...

Re: why do people think chows are one of the most dangerous

I believe its the reputation of Chow that put the sign dangerous dogs on them. Friends that cover to my place love my chow, but the nurse and vet are the ones that seem fearful of her. They never fail to ask, is she aggressive, is she bad tempered, does she bite, will she attack? But after spending ...
