Re: Spartacus our new puppy

Thanks Cindy, the wedding was fun. Groom told me that he's never seen one either at a show but decided to ask. He figured the worst they could say is no. He even got the wedding to be in the premium for the shows. No shows for awhile so we're going to try to make it to some classes.

Re: Chow Chow colour

The puppies will be red like the two adults chows with them. You can see Brutus as a puppy and then all grown up as part of my signature.

Re: Spartacus our new puppy

The shows in Duluth were fun even though Spartacus got reserved both days to a very nice 2 year old male chow. It was his first indoor shows with about 1000 dogs and was good for him to be there. Walking him before the shows help him settle down some and I had to capture this picture while on our wa...

Re: Spartacus our new puppy

BTW, after the show in Duluth on Saturday there is a wedding in/at the ring. Two show people(professional handlers) that I kind of know and have talk to them many times.

Re: Spartacus our new puppy

Rory's Dad, You are very lucky to have a friend like Tony. Sure don't think I would register 2 dogs if I didn't have someone else to show the other one ahead of time. I was glad to hear that Toby got select on Saturday and Rory is almost done with getting his GCH. But outdoor shows seem to always ha...

Re: Spartacus our new puppy

Congrats on Toby's GCH point. Always good to get feedback from the judges but easier to do when you win. Even easier if you have a win photo taken with the judge.

Re: Spartacus our new puppy

Rory's Dad, I will diffidently try that next time. It was nice to have the picture so I could see that. I think a video would be even better for a training tool. I just can't wait for the next shows in a couple weeks. Wish us luck!!!

Re: chow chow and its smell

Spartacus bib is always wet now for the last 2 months. He was afraid of the blower but since I have to use it on him every day he like it now. Go figure! I saw Cindy suggestion on washing the bib area and again he was afraid at first but now just stands there. A wet bib can lead to hot spots too so ...

Re: Spartacus our new puppy

Well we finally made it to our first shows last weekend. On Sat. it was 95 degrees so we just brought Spartacus. Because of the heat we took him from the car to the ring and it wasn't pretty. He broke the lead right away so I grabbed him and found a way to use it to continue. At the ramp he didn't w...

Re: Weight of a female chow.

Laika looks great, I wouldn't worry about how much she weighs. Just enjoy her puppyhood and take lots of pictures. It's normal to think chow puppies look thin when you give them a bath because they look different all wet.

Re: 7 month old chow growling at daughter.

I have an 8 month old make chow right now and his favorite things are walks, treats and his tennis ball. I would suggest taking walks with your daughter and not only will that relation improve but might help with strangers too. If she like treats bring some along and they may help. I walk my chows b...

Re: Handler Classes

What I'm seeing is that people who are shôwing chows are tired of wasting money on entries when they are the only ones entered. Seems to me also that new puppy's starting their campaign is way down. I wouldn't be showing Brutus if we didn't get Spartacus. I'm glad we can just go to the local shows a...

Re: Spartacus our new puppy

They are getting along better and are allowed together when they are supervised. They both know I'm alpha dog and I won't tolerate any rough play. Maybe someday they will be allowed together all the time but if not we are ok with that. Our friend with 2 male chows waited 1 year before they did but w...

Re: Long-snouted chow chows

First welcome to the site. Try posting a picture so we can see what you are talking about. Your chow is still young and her head will still grow for another 6 to 12 months.

Re: Best vacuum

The best one I found and bought 2 are Hoover High Performance Bagless Upright Vacuum, UH72600. It has an adjustable setting for the beater bar and can turn it off for wood or tile floors. I did pay $169 so it's over your budget but very close. It's bagless and I would never get one with a bag again....

Cindy, yes we plan on showing him but slowly. His first show will be on the last day before he will be 6 months old. It will be in a Four-to-Six Month Puppy competition and is less then 3 weeks. After that it will be local shows with Brutus as the only other chow until we think he's ready. Brutus st...

Re: Toby Earns His AKC CH Designation

Way to go Team Toby!!! I think the reason it took less time is because you did it once and learned a lot the first time. Plus finding great friends in Tony and Sharon really help. But finishing a smooth chow, I think is a great accomplishment. Toby must be really nice because without all the fur, th...
