Disadvantages eer, ahhh, oohhh,.....Nope can't think of any.
C is for LION DOG.C is really for Chow Chow.
Before anyone comments on this being in the wrong category, I can't find one specifically for Chow Chows.Check out the pictures at bottom of page.
How to introduce someone to the Chow and keep them hooked, here goes….
The Chow is a very "cat like" dog.
They can be house trained in under 5 days.
Noise sensitive and powerfully built.
Strong and independent of thought.
History of the Chow Chow:
This is a breed of dog originating from China where they where bred for their strength (pulling carts), their noise sensitivity (great guard dogs), and their meat!
They are still eaten in some parts of China, the general rule of thumb is the more BLUE the tongue the tastier the meat! Yeah I know, sick!!!
When shipped to the UK their boxes where marked 'chow chow' and this is where to "chow down" is mistakenly taken from.
They are also the 'models' used for the stone FOO DOGS which traditionally guards the front of Buddhist temples and some palaces.
It is believed they are amongst they oldest breed of dog.
They always bond strongly with a household, not welcoming strangers in at all. This can be difficult if a Chow needs re-homing.
Mine tend to growl at strangers whilst wagging their tails!
They need a strong willed owner as they can be VERY stubborn, ALWAYS thinking about a command before carrying it out. Not to be confused with a strong hand, NEVER SMACK A CHOW IT WILL BREAK ITS SPIRIT COMPLETELY. I know this applies to all dogs but it does so especially the Chow.
They generally only show affection to those they have bonded with and visitors will be ignored, but watched very carefully!
