Chow Chow

The Chow Chow has two coat types, rough and smooth. The rough coated Chow Chow has a thick, abundant coat which stands off of the body while the smooth coated Chow Chow has a wooly undercoat with a short top coat giving him a plush texture. While red and black are the most commonly seen colours they can also be blue or shades of fawn, through cream to white.

The Chow Chow's blue-black tongue is a well recognised feature of the breed. He tends to be a one-man-dog of extreme loyalty and adopts an aloof stand-offish manner with others.

A strong, wilful, ancient breed, the Chow Chow has has long and varied history which has seen him employed as a dog of war, a hunter, a guardian, a sled-hauler and a herder. Repellent though it is to dog lovers today, the Chow Chow has also long been bred and reared in China for his meat and his valuable pelt, a practice which, in some districts, continues to this day.
