on Chow Chows and breeding

our vision on the Chow Chow breed

xin+feng Our Chow Chows were at first our beloved pets, good company with an appealing character.
On the other hand they are an ancient cultural heritage, worth to preserve for future times. That is why we started to breed. If we had bitch that was good enough for breeding, we could contribute to that future.


For us, character was most important in breeding, without a stable character no good Chow Chow. Agression and/or fear should not be present in any Chow Chows used for breeding.

Of course physical health is important too, so we only used a bitch for breeding after at least her hips and knees were tested (as required by the Dutch Chow Chow Club).
If these test results were well enough, we would breed a female once or twice.

Our goal was to breed stable and healthy smooth Chow Chows. Breeding only smooths was not possible, there were not enough smooths to go for that, although they are not so rare as they used to be. If we had a litter there were always some roughs too.
