TEMPERAMENT

Keen intelligence, an independent spirit and innate dignity give the Chow an aura of aloofness. It is a Chow's nature to be reserved and discerning with strangers.

Displays of aggression or timidity are unacceptable. Because of its deep set eyes the Chow has limited peripheral vision and is best approached within the scope of that vision.

Always approach the Chow directly from the front, never from the side or rear, with the first contact being under the chin, not over the top of the head.

PRESENTATION

The Chow Chow is a natural breed, best presented in natural coat, without excess trimming or shaping.

The Chow Chow's gait is best evaluated when presented on a loose lead, allowing the dog to freely exhibit his natural stilted gait.
