Re: Dog started growling at child

OK, so you have Chow's, but don't seem to understand them. One it's a challenge, two jealousy (over female), but why you haven't had them both fixed already is beyond understanding. And you have heard of the "terrible two's" Chow's are famous for, right? OK, the fix will help some things, ...

Re: My dog hates being touched

Patience. And keep going through these processes. Chow’s take awhile to calm down, usually about 5 yrs old. Our big boy was similar, couldn’t care less anymore at 11 yrs old. Big chane was at 5 yrs, now he even acts like the puppy he never was.

Re: Longevity in the Chow

Ha! ShenLung is currently 11, very active as mentioned in previous posts and still more than capable and willing to run for an hour or two. He has no grey, but did start losing muscle mass this year. He lost the tendon in his tight rear knee but has already walked it off. Pretty sure he’ll hit 15. ;)

Re: buying from superpuppyshop...scam?

That’s a pretty cheap price for a rare breed animal. But, if your looking for love I guess it doesn’t matter. Lots of rescues around as well. If your looking for purebred and reputable, perhaps a chow is out of your financial range.

So we just got back from 2 weeks camping at Bon Echo Park with the bears. They have taken to 3-5hrs of Paddle Boarding daily. Everytime we paddled down to the dog park, we got a lot of lookers as FuShiLu asked me to remove her floatation vest so she could launch herself into the air and swim the rem...

Re: My chow chow can not get used of the city

Patience and time. Young chows can take awhile to relax. The rough thing is it may take a few years, but it gets better each year. They really calm down after five years.

Re: Any rescue chow owners that can offer some advice?

I handle quite a few chow fosters as well as other dogs, as mentioned above good advice. Another thing is to let a long lead drag from the colar back behind your chow. If he starts giving you issue, don’t scold, just talk calmly while walking up/on the lead to his color, forcing him to lay down. Har...

Re: How to get male chow to stop marking his territory in the house?

For one, thats not territorial unless another animal is present. It’s dominance. Try to get the chow’s sent in the areas where peeing is happening. Is this when your around? Spray bottle might work. With a good ‘no’ in a stern voice and a quick trip outside. Is this when your away? Harder. Try confi...

@JillZ - start grroming with your hands while your sitting around, especially feet and tail. After awhile you can work some real brushes in, patience and persistance. Your going to get push back, work through it. Same with bathing and vet. Our big guy hates the vet. That said he accepts it is necess...

Just be calm and give him some space. Once the realization comes your not a problem trust will take over. I have a large male here that from they day we picked him up as a puppy to his current 10yrs of age has no interest in people petting or groping him. Strangers can go to hell. That said, every o...

This is rather normal activity.

It was violent, but over quickly usually, and the outcome was never in d...

Re: "Smushing" his face on things?

To that degree this is a new one. If your vet doesn’t think it’s an issue your good, just a lot of smushing to come. Ours tend to only do that to dead animals and other predator urine/feces with the intent of eliminating the competition.
