Barking/Pulling towards other dogs on walks

Hey guys. I've ran into a bit of a situation with Kage, my 1 year old male. When we decided to go on a walk and someone passes from behind or front, Kage likes to bark/cry/growl and pull towards them. I use a harness which makes the pulling a little worse I've heard... thinking about a neck collar o...

Re: To neuter or not?

I just had my 7 month old boy neutered 2 weeks ago. I was terrified, because when he was a baby he had a slight heart murmur.... but he grew out of it, but it was always in the back of my mind if it would effect him or not going into surgery, but the vet and my wife both assured me it was going to b...

How often are your trims?

Hey gang, A few months back I had Nadia groomed and had them take off some hair from her neck down, well, it's back again in full force and she's shedding for her summer coat. I got most of the hair our but it's still very long and to me needs a good cut. I REALLY like what Kaysa did with her male s...

Older dog licking the puppys gums

Hey gang, quick question for ya. Lately I've been finding Kage's teeth around the house, which I expected, but what I didn't expect is our older chow, Nadia, to be trying to get in Kage's mouth. When she does she's licking his mouth, I suspect his gums? Kage doesn't seem to mind it but I've been tel...

Re: Update on Kage, 16 weeks.

Thanks. My wife and I traveled to a town called Nova, Ohio. It was literally in the middle of nowhere. It was about an 8-9 hour trip, 4 up, 5 back... we stopped to eat and let Kage potty.

At first they didn't get along but now their the best of buddies, brother and sister technically. Anyhow, I had an inciden...

Re: What made you chose a Chow.

When I was 15 and my brother was 7 we bugged and begged our mom and dad for a dog, literally EVERY DAY. Well one day mom finally broke and told us to pick between a Shar-Pei and a Chow-Chow, why only these choices we never asked but we agreed on a Chow because they looked like lions/bears and we tho...

Re: 8 week old puppy, incessantly cries and barks when gated

I had the same problem with my new pup about a month ago. At night I would gate him in the bathroom, since it's all stone tile, so if he had an accident it's easily cleanable. Which he never did. Anyhow, he barked a lot when I put him in there... I gave him a few toys to chew on and a sweat-shirt I ...

Re: Lexi has curly hair.. Does your chow have a unique trait

Our new pup, Kage, has about 2-3 inches of black on the tip of his tail (he's cinnamon/blonde). As he's grown it hasn't went away so I'm hoping it stays... it gives him a unique look to match his lion-like mane he's growing into.

Re: Walking With Chows

I walk Nadia daily ... usually around 6pm or 9pm. We go to a local park which seems abandoned anymore and I let her free walk with me. We both run two laps and walk two which equals out to 3 miles total. We've been doing it for over 3 years though so she's very use to it. Our new pup Kage gets walke...

I've gotten him 1 rolled up raw-hide (until i heard they cause bloat, etc.) and one baked pig ear from the pet store. I've heard bad things about both, then again there's al...

This was taken a few days ago when Kage first hit 11 weeks. Our family has said he's grown significantly since we got him, but I can't really tell since I see him every day. I just noticed today his left ear is fully up while the right is a TAD behind, he looks a little goofy, lol. Have a good day g...

Hey gang. This is our new addition, Kage. He is currently 7 weeks old. We've had him for a week as of today. He is definitely a bruiser. He's going to give our 4yr old Chow, Nadia, a good run for her money when he gets bigger. We are crate- training him at night and when we go away with a HUGE succe...
