COAT

There are two types of coat; rough and smooth. Both are double coated.

Rough

In the rough coat, the outer coat is abundant, dense, straight and off standing, rather coarse in texture; the undercoat soft, thick and woolly.

Puppy coat soft, thick and woolly overall.

The coat forms a profuse ruff around the head and neck, framing the head. The coat and ruff generally longer in dogs than in bitches. The coat length varies markedly on different Chows and thickness, texture and condition should be given greater emphasis than length.

Obvious trimming or shaping is undesirable. Trimming of the whiskers, feet and metatarsals optional.

Smooth

The smooth coated Chow is judged by the same
standard as the rough coated Chow except that references to the quantity and distribution of the outer coat are not applicable to the smooth coated Chow, which has a hard, dense, smooth outer coat with a definite undercoat. There should be no obvious ruff or feathering on the legs or tail.

COLOR

Clear colored, solid or solid with lighter shadings in the ruff, tail and featherings.

There are five colors in the Chow:

*Red (light golden to deep mahogany),

*Black,

*Blue,

*Cinnamon
(light fawn to deep cinnamon), and

*Cream.


Acceptable colors to be judged on an equal basis.
