Chow Shepherd Breed Maintenance
Chow Shepherds are a mix of two breeds that are heavy shedders with dense coats, meaning there is a lot of fur to shed. Expect your Chow Shepherd to have high maintenance requirements. Brush him daily with either the pin brush or the slicker brush, and at heavy times of shed use the deshedding tool as well. If you brush his teeth at least three times per week, he should not develop major problems with the teeth and may only need an annual checkup at the veterinarian. Bathing should be done when needed, these dogs do not need to have regular bathing sessions unless they get dirty after rolling in something unpleasant. Their nails will be strong and maybe difficult to cut - so be sure to trim them at least twice a month so the job does not get out of hand.
