Chow chow dogs: characteristics

Chow Chows are a large dog breed that generally carry a weight of around 30 kilos, measuring at 60 cm. They are characterized by their blue-black tongue and abundantly smooth fur, which can vary in colors, brown being the most common. Chow Chows are known for their loving, affectionate and playful character. However, if not socialized correctly, they can be weary of strangers, hence the importance of proper canine socialization and training. For more about this, read our article about socializing dogs.

Chow Chows require periodic baths due to their abundant coats. In addition, don’t forget to offer them sufficient exercise and walks. As they are very independent dogs, they require a large exclusive space in the home so as not to become stressed or anxious.

  • Avoid using colloquialisms or orders which may confuse your dog.
  • Find an important name that your dog can identify with.
