Re: Does anyones Chow do this??

My Kyra is very expressive with her toys, she will go after them whenever she is happy/sad/excited/etc. When I get home from work, after meals or treats, etc. She will often involve people around her with her toys too, and will bring them over to show off. In the winter (almost a year ago) I spraine...

Re: Puppy or Adopt

I second Constantina's comments. My Kyra (5 years old) does not often get along with puppies for this reason. She is in heaven when she meets a dog who is in sync with her energy level and will want to be best friends. She can find this in puppies, though this is few and far between. Best of luck!

She couldn't be left alone for more than a minute without freaking out - pacing, whimpering, scratching, etc. She was like this for the first couple of weeks we had her, then it was a few more months to get completely relaxed i...

Re: anxiety issues

Hi everyone,
Thanks so much for the feedback! I have been using the suggestions and Kyra is getting better, though a little skittish at times. She is 5 years old and is an awesome dog, just a little high strung.

Re: Chows Not intelligent? Please.

I have a half chow and she is the smartest dog I have known. Very perceptive, great at reading emotions and anticipating emotions. I have had to earn her trust for her to listen to me and obey commands. She will not listen to strangers or give them the time of day until properly introduced by her ow...
