Re: Do you trust your Chow off-leash?

Skadi is only let off leash at a Dog park we go to once a month. It's a very large area, nicely tucked away from any busy roads etc. so the selective hearing is fine in this environment. By that, I mean it's okay when she dives into a dam and swims after the ducks she thinks she can catch. We just m...

Re: New owner to be <3

Re: Chow Chows and cats?

Chow Chows and cats. I have a rather weird "problem". When we got Skadi, the cats were 3 years and 2 years old. They avoided her initially because she thought bulldozing straight into her new pack mates was how one showed affection. She got over it and now they "tolerate" each other. The older cat i...

Intermittent limp

Hi, new here, but I'm going to jump right into it. My Chow is just under a year old, and she's developed a limp in her left back leg, but its not all the time. Every now and then she will hop with this leg in the air for a few seconds. We'll grab her, poke in her paw pad, between the toes, all the w...
