Chow Chow Breed Maintenance
A rough-coated Chow Chow needs daily grooming in order to keep the coat free of tangles. Their smooth-coated counterparts need only weekly brushing to maintain their coat. It is important to keep the eyes and facial folds clean as their coat (and the wrinkles) can retain dirt well. Maintaining the teeth with daily brushing and the nails with a monthly trim is important also. Chow Chows should always live inside with their family. They can adapt to a variety of homes and may be placed in a fenced-in yard for exercise. They are a breed that is more easily housebroken. Crate training is encouraged as this curious pup may chew on your furniture or other inappropriate items while you are away. They do not like to be left alone for long periods of time.
