With his lion-like appearance and regal manner, the Chow is truly one of the most beautiful and impressive breeds of dogs. He is very intelligent but has cat-like characteristics in that he does not always have the desire to please like many other breeds, preferring instead to do what suits his particular mood. He is dignified, independent, and reserved with affection.

The properly trained Chow makes a wonderful companion. He is very quiet, well-behaved, not a barker and not destructive. He is excellent with children if raised with them and very protective of his home and family. This natural protective instinct along with his reservation toward strangers make him an excellent watch dog who only barks when necessary.

The Chow Chow will get on well with children when raised with them, and with older, more considerate children, but needs to be supervised around animals as he may be aggressive towards dogs and cats. He tends to be reserved and wary around strangers, perhaps because of his protective streak. The Chow Chow is a dog that will often keep himself to himself unless provokes, but do bear in mind that these dogs do have predatory instincts and can therefore be dangerous around smaller dogs and cats. Although training can be difficult because of the nature of the breed, housebreaking of the Chow Chow is normally quite easy.

The Chow Chow originates from China, and was bred for hunting, protection, and herding, as well as protection. By the late eighteenth century Chow Chows had been introduced in Great Britain. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1903.
The life expectancy of the Chow Chow is around 8-12 years, and there are a number of health problems associated with this breed. This includes allergies, skin conditions, sensitivity to chemicals and medications, glaucoma, entropion, thyroid problems, and renal cortical hypoplasia. The parents of the Chow Chow puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.
