Summary of Chow Puppies and Dogs
Chow puppies and dogs hold an air of authority and importance. For the right owner, this breed of puppy and dog will make a well mannered, obedient, loving and fantastic companion that will show loyalty and dedication. However, for a more passive and inexperienced owner, this may not be the case as this breed is known for having a stubborn and independent side to its personality where it can become dominant, a little lazy and will do what it likes to some extent. Therefore, suitable training is vital with this breed and should be provided from an early age. It is also important to socialize this breed of puppy and dog when it's young so that it accepts unfamiliar people when it becomes an adult dog. This breed can be a little stand-offish and reserved around strangers. It is important to care of your puppy or dog's health properly and to take it for regular check-ups at the vets to help detect any health problems or issues.
Choosing Chow Puppies and Dogs as Pets
Chow puppies grow into medium to large sized adult dogs and the above summary will help you to determine whether they are suitable as a family pet. If you are considering whether to buy a Chow puppy, adoption is also an option for this particular type of dog, or even selecting one from a rescue centre, or reputable dog breeder. The grooming requirements for this breed are high as dogs and puppies have long hair which will need to be brushed several times per week and daily during periods of shedding. Grooming can take time so allow a couple of hours per week. Bathing is also important and should be carried out at least once per month, or even weekly if required. This breed tends to be a little lazy but exercise is still very important for its all round well-being. It should be taken for a daily walk and also fed a well balanced diet in order to maintain its over-all health.
