This breed is often referred to by their owners as ‘the cleanest of all dogs’ because they are easy to train and have little dog odor.  The Chow-Chow has a very refined demeanor and is very composed and rarely disagreeable. They come from northern China where they are known as “puffy-lion dogs.” They love to spend most of their time inside with the family; it’s best to provide daily exercise to keep them active. Moderate grooming is needed for their lush, thick hair. Chow Chows can be wary of strangers and other dogs, and very protective of their owners and their family. They usually live for 8-12 years and weigh 45-70 pounds.
