Any Advice

Postby nainai_25 » Fri Apr 13, 2018 1:55 pm

Hi, I’m thinking of getting a chow chow and I would really welcome any advice with regards to training, crating, food, socializing etc. Would really appreciate any information to be prepared as I never had a chow chow.
Thanks in advance

Start socializing right away, with other dogs and people. I adopted my chow so I didn’t have to train for the bathroom but my other dog. Every time in the crate when she whined is out her out even if it was 2am bring her outside and sand outside with her until she went. And afterwards brought inside and get a treat as a reward.

Hes right you need to socialize a chow almost from 6 weeks and up to a year. That is the most important thing you can ever do. I have owned at least 8 chows in my lifetime. I have a cinnamon and a black chow now both puppies between 5 and 10 months. Far as crating i have never done that ! They are way too easy to house break! Crating a chow is not a good thing. I took mine out around one hour after they eat or drink and always to the same spot! I have doggie doors and once they got that down pat they were fine. I have degenerating knees and really bad arthritis so i am limited without braces. One is fully trained as a service dog the other is well on his way . They are easy to train if you repeat the same steps a few times day. But don't be fooled they are smarter than you think. The more you take him for walks and play fetch with others involved any chow will be fine. You will love their Loyalty and Protectiveness and absolutely their love for you !Good luck!!

If you haven't found a pup, the single most important thing is to find a good breeder. A pup from a top shelf breeder will seriously solve half of all your problems. You will find your chow easier to train due to excellent temperament, with minimal health problems because of good genetics, and a good breeder will be able to provide on-going advice on various aspects such as diet, grooming, training etc
