Re: Pup weight and parents weight?

Thank you for your advice. Don't worry, we would never attempt to breed her before everything is ready and good to go on all aspects including health, money, and vet. We have a friend who used to breed his Shar Pei before his baby girl got stolen. I was there throughout most of the process of her la...

Re: Pup weight and parents weight?

Oooh that is very interesting and cool! Thank you for this! She does look just like those. Do you have any advice on if we breed her in the future? In terms of if we should look for a male closer to her build? Would there be any health problems for her or the puppies if we got a heavy boned big boy?...

Re: Pup weight and parents weight?

Oh thank you so so much! We don't plan on showing her and we really don't mind if she's not the chowest of chows. However it does tick me off a little bit when someone tells us she doesn't look like a chow or just doesn't believe she's a chow (happened to us a couple of times), says we were ripped o...

Re: Thinking of getting a Chow, but have toy dog. Help?

I also have been taking my pup everywhere with me ever since we got her. She has never been the outgoing super friendly brave kind but she soon got the hang of it and now she absolutely loves going outside. I take her to my mom's house and spend weekends there often. There she would get to play with...

Re: Pup weight and parents weight?

Oh thank you so much! I hope she doesn't get as heavy as her mom then. Thank you for the growth cycle estimation too! I will wait till she's closer to a year old to get a nicer collar/leash/food bowl/etc. I'm glad to hear her adult fur would take longer to come in too. I suspected our trainer at Pet...

Pup weight and parents weight?

Hey guys, I am wondering if anyone know whether puppy weight have anything to do with their parents' weight? Coda is getting to 6 months old (precisely 23 weeks) and weighing just about 30 lbs. Yet when we got her, we were told that her mom was 70 lbs and her dad 80 lbs. I just want to know if it's ...

Re: Houston, College Station, or Huntsville, TX?

Sorry I forgot to check on here for a while! Coda is a bit over 4 months old now, precisely 18 weeks. Your pup sounds adorable! Coda's more shy and warms up to others slowly but she loves to play after she is more familiar. We go back to my mom's (west side of Houston) a lot and love the dog park in...

Help! Coda stopped eating...

Hello all, I am wondering if anyone can ease my concern a little bit or confirm that I should take Coda to a vet as soon as possible. About three weeks ago I got a new bag of puppy food. Our old one is Nutro Ultra and the new bag is Nutro Natural. I started mixing them and Coda did not seem to like ...

Re: Greetings everyone!

Thank you Cocoa! I am so glad to hear you say that it looks like Coda has found a good home. Since she's my first, I often worry about doing something wrong or not providing her what she needs. And yeah, she's only played with two dogs, both owned by our friends. Other than that, we try to take her ...

Yeah I don't know why they decided to take them at only 6 weeks :( I'm glad to hear that I seem to be doing the right thing haha! She is my first chow and first dog that depends almost solely on me (when I had my other dogs I was much younger and my parents take care of the buying food, bathing, and...

Thank you for your replies! Chowpups, Yeah Coda's parents' owners sold her and her brothers and sisters to the store we got her from when they were only 6 weeks old :( We will try to keep up with her training as best as we can. She learned to lay down on command yesterday and made me really proud :)...

Thank you both for your replies! :D :D Yeah I read that in many places on this forum puppies should not leave their mom till 8 weeks and I really wish Coda could have had that. We bought her from a store in the mall. She and her brothers and sisters were already separated from their parents at that ...

Too fat?

Coda is the first chow I have ever seen and touch, nevertheless own. This might be a silly question but it's been bugging me... I have looked around and seen pictures so I know chows look fatter than other dogs, but I am still getting worried about feeding her too much and she's getting fat. She dou...

I have been reading this forum since and we are very very grateful for all the information on here. She pees mostly outside and every now an...
