QHello, we are great fans of the chows. We have had one for about eight years. Last summer we lost him. Though he put us to some trouble we loved him greatly. Today I know that we have made a lot of mistakes in his training. There was a lack of knowledge about this breed. And we can’t get more information in our country (Lithuania). As we are going to receive another chow very soon we need information urgently. We want our new chow to become friend with the whole family not only with one person. Especially we are interested in the Socialization. We have read The Rules for the Socialization of the Chow Chow written by Dr. Samuel Draper and Joan McDonald Brearley at Northern California Chow Chow Adoption home page. And we want to read the whole book “The book of the Chow Chow”. Where can we get or order it? Maybe we can order this or other books by e-mail. Also may be you have more information about training, care, … which can reach us by e-mail?

AHello, I am glad to hear that you want to bring up your next Chow Chow to be very socialized. I do not have much other information, but you can find a few books on Chow Chows at, go into their catalog and search in the keyword for “Chow Chow” and you will get a hand full of books that you can order.
