5. Do you have the time and interest to groom a Chow? The Chow comes in two coats, the rough coat, which is the Chow that you usually see, and the smooth coat. The rough coat, with its big neck ruff and heavy, dense undercoat, will require grooming twice a week, possibly more when the dog sheds his coat. The smooth-coated Chow will also require grooming, but there will be much less coat to groom. You will not have a happy pet, or be a happy Chow owner, if you do not keep the coat brushed, mat-free and clean.
6. The Chow thrives best as an only child. Chows often do not get along well with other pets, and you may have a stressful situation if you bring a Chow into a family that already has one or two, or more, pets. You do not want any difficult situations to arise that you cannot control, so it is best to talk this over with the breeder of your Chow puppy before you bring him home. Don't worrythe Chow is more than enough dog for anyone.
