Barking – Moderate – The frequency of Chow Chow barking varies greatly from dog to dog. There are two important things to remember when it comes Chow Chow barking. First, they do not have very good eyesight. Therefore, they may bark at objects they perceive as threats, but are simply stationary objects. It might sound kind of humorous, but it’s true. Their poor eyesight leads them to bark more often than it is needed. Secondly, they will need some extra help remembering what is worth barking at. Chow Chow are great pets but not known to be the most intelligent dog breed. Therefore, they will likely need to be reminded often during training them not to bark.
Shedding – Moderate – Chow Chow shed seasonally, but don’t shed all of the time. During the time of the year in which they are shedding, they will shed very rapidly. Their fur also requires regular care.
Family Friendly – Moderately – Chow Chows need to be socialized early in their life. They need to have people in their home other than the owners so they can become accustomed to people they do not know.
Pet Friendly – Not Particularly – Chow Chows are instinctively aggressive towards dogs of the same sex. The goes for females too.
