Re: Males fighting

This is rather normal activity. When ShenLung 85lbs was growing up with his sister FengHuang 65lbs he always challenged her, even though she was Supreme Ruler of the Known Universe and would remind anyone who thought otherwise. 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.

Re: Adopting a Senior Chow with Children

Well we foster rescue chow's and we introduce them to lots of kids daily, never seen an issue. They will like/dislike anyone just like people do. Our FuShiLu doesn't like kids in general, but plays with several on the street she has deemed acceptible. ShenLung has never been fond of them but doesn't...

Re: HELP! How to introduce a new puppy of a different breed

We have two chowlings, we foster rescue chows and babysit many neighbourhood fur kids when their parents go away for holiday. Nobody died yet, everyone became friends, played rough, yelped, played more. I really don't think a problem exists outside you. If your stressed yours will be and that will b...

Re: Male or female as second dog (puppy)?

I'm trying to be 'nice', but your statements imply issues beyond others to help. We don't know what kind of person you really are, specifically calm, so you can be the best Chow Chow owner possible. But not neutering the current fur kid is asking for issues, so why bother putting pressure on two fur...

Re: Why my chowchow is small compared to other chow

Why was ours large??!!! Hahaha, we had 2 tiny ones and a large one as puppies, both little ones grew to 65lbs of lean muscle and the big one is 85lbs of the leanest power muscle we've seen. Enjoy them while small, it doesn't last.

Re: Salmon Oil & Coconut Oil for Chow Chow

Well we seem to be lucky with coats, of course tossing them a salmon is how they prefer it. ;) We feed the flash frozen foods with lots of good meats and some veggies our guys could pass on that except sweet potato, they love that.

Re: Chow + Children

Some of you scare the crap out of us. Chows are great with kids, plenty of our neighbours agree. Some kids do rub them the wrong way and Chows usually just stay away from them. FuShiLu likes some really dislikes others and some are rough with her, she seems to prefer them. ShenLung ignores them all....

When FengHuang passed away the breeder told us to watch ShenLung for signs of loneliness and despair. It took months to find FuShiLu whom he loved from the moment her li...

Re: My Chow Chow keeps getting attacked by other dogs

That's strange. No dog has every really challenged much less attacked our chows. However this is not as much a dog issue as an owner issue. Report those people to your local by-law, they would screw you over in a heartbeat.

Chows snore. Period. Anyone thinks they are unhealthy is not aware of the breed. I have 2 right here in perfect health thundering away. They run down a fox at the drop of a hat, jog all day in the heat without a care in the world. They see the vet annually, perfect health. They snore. The big fella ...

Re: Bad Reaction or Bad Situation?

Yup sounds normal. But you do have to keep in mind that once you have a new puppy your going to have set the pecking order. If Tai is 'yours' brewing that bond will not go well if you don't take charge of the situation.

Re: Biting issue

I agree with the above statement, FuShiLu did this, we'll still does at times. I always attempt to put my whole hand/fist in the mouth or at the very least gab lower jaw pressing a finger thumb down on the tongue. The goal is to provide a not so enjoyable response.

Re: Car Rides

Start early and often. Every single one of ours loves (loved) car rides, even 15-19 hours to vacation on the ocean. They love me the ocean. While in motion they sleep. Stop the car they wake and wonder if they get to pee and meet new friends.

As for swimming.... Ours took awhile but once they realized it was possible, they took to it. They really, really like the ocean, probably due to the saltwater extra buoyancy.
