This dog does best with an experienced, firm dog owner who is willing to spend ample
time in the areas of training and socialization. Chow Chows are beautiful dogs that
can easily adapt to city, suburban or rural living.

The Chow Chow is medium in size and comes in two coats:
smooth and rough. They are sturdy dogs with broad heads and
short muzzles. Two of the most recognizable features of the
Chow Chow are their bluish/black tongue and high-set tail (which
often curls over). They are approximately 18 to 22 inches in
height and weigh 45 to 70 pounds.
The Chow Chow needs a firm but
kind owner who is willing to train.
The Chow Chow does not always get along well with other
canines, so they are not the best choice if you are looking for a
dog park companion. They are quite intelligent and very
protective. As with any dog, the Chow Chow should slowly be
introduced to strangers, especially children.
