I wish I had a positive in- put in this thread . Unfortunately I've only really known 2 chows...both were so very protective of their owners , I who would pat a lion , was growled and snapped at. One's owner was napping at his Mom's house (brought his dog)...when his Mom playfully slapped at her son's feet to wake him up , the Chow attacked her causing many stitches. I think they are so beautiful , but unfortunately I can't trust them .( Especially with children other than the ones in their home.)

My neighbor's chows were pretty nice. A month or two ago, while walking two of my girls, I saw a loose Chow Chow on someone's step. There was also another dog on the other side of the street. I was least afraid of the Chow.....the other dog was behaving more aggressively.

Doesnt this also fall in line with the no bad dogs, but bad owners? They need to be socialized. Princess knows no stranger. People knock on our door and she doesnt bark at all and if she goes to the door its with her tail wagging ready to greet her friends. She is great with my grand-daughter and has been around other little kids and is great with them. The only thing is she does have to be watched because if she gets to excited she can knock alittle one down.
I will be getting my new baby in about a week, she will be raised the same way and I look forward to showing people in this area just how great a Chow can be.

I don't know much about Chows (except they have purple tongues...or is it black). Anyway, my grandma had one when she was a little girl, and it loved their family so much. It would not let any stranger near their home, or in it for that matter. They finally had to give it up, and my grandmother said she was heartbroken because she loved her chow dog.

My parents took in a stray Chow Chow my first year in college. I had come home for Christmas vacation to find this strange dog in the house and was not friendly with him - he got even, one night he took a dump in my bed. Regardless, months and years later, my brother and I would wrestle and run with him, as well as chase him around the house to our mother's chagrin. Budd was very gentle with us. He had bitten one cousin who was playing with his food bowl while he was eating, as well as some young punk on the block who thought it was funny to throw gravel at him to get him provoked. He loved to be brushed but hated to take his bi-yearly baths in the backyard (to the point the family was trying to corral him into the washtub). Budd passed away six-months ago at the age of 17 (human years). He was a very good dog and is sorely missed.

See thats my biggest problem with them.


Some of them, all i've met, are just vicious to other dogs, unprovoked. I know alot about protection and know that what Chows usually do is not it.

For example, when a dog three times its size is walking around minding his own business and a male chow just HAS to run up to it and start to hump the big dog... Then when big dog puts the chow in its place, the chow starts attacking. Thats not protection.

When a grown chow chow comes into the off-leash park and starts bullying and biting small puppy's thats not protection.

As i said before, im sure there are great chow chow's outthere with no dominance/agression problems but most( read all) around here have those problems. Saying that all chow chows are sweetest things is just wrong

Chow Chows are a more aggressive/dominant breed, but that doesn't mean that their bad dogs. No, not all chows are going to be angels, but there are plenty that are. I remember one night....my sister, the girls and I were in the basement eating pizza and watching movies. The neighbor's chow that Tippy had lived with came to the window and stared down at us, whining. He then came to the back door, whining at our dogs.
We did meet him physically a few times. He would wander around the neighborhood as he pleased, and passed or came into our yard occasionally, but never did anything to our girls. In a way, I think he was just a big baby. I'm sad to say that after the druggies left, I don't know what happened to him and the other chow. Mr. B and Nanook...hope you found a good home.

FaceZ Of DeaTh, you ARE ignorant, you dont deserve even a goldfish because it woulld probably be too "stupid" for you.

Chows are not the dog for me and they are definetly not the dog for you.
just because they are not the right breed for you doesnt make them "horrible"

sorry guys if this is late but i wanted to add my bit
