Funny Dog Breeds and their Needs

The breed of dog known as the Chow Chow is a fond favorite of celebrities. Such names as Drew Barrymore, Janet Jackson and Martha Stewart have all owned them. They are famed for their square, brick like frame and especially fluffy coat; the Chow Chow is a wonderful breed of dog. Its temperament has often been likened to a cat, with a chilled out demeanor  It can be intensely loyal to its owners yet show complete indifference to strangers.

Chow Chows originally hail from China where they are known as Songshi Quan. In the Far East a new craze has taken over, it involves dying your dog’s fur to look like other animals and as a result the Panda Chow Chow has sprung into existence (pictured below).

They look exactly like miniature pandas! Chow Chows are fantastic looking dogs but they require a certain amount of looking after, when it comes to dietary and grooming requirements. Their fluffy coat needs constant maintenance, with regular brushing sessions and trimming. It is also a perfect home for fleas, so being prepared for the inevitable is essential if you’re considering this breed.

They also require a diet that is rich with nutrients. Brands like Royal Canine offer specialist foods that provide what your dog individually needs. The needs of dogs are not universal, so no one brand of food can suit every dog. Others like Arden Grange have beautifully balanced meals at an affordable price.

Lots of celebrities are jumping on the eco band wagon recently. Public opinion is starting to shift too, as we begin to realise the benefits of eating food with naturally sourced vitamins rather than added chemicals. If you want to offer the same to your dog, James Wellbeloved have a range of all natural, organic food for your dog.

All of the above are stocked and are available for purchase online at VioVet (bar the Panda Chow Chows).

I had a Chow Chow mix and he lived 16 years and we lost him last year. The sweetest dog in the world!

I know most breeds of dogs but I have never seen these 'pandas' before. They are amazing. Diane

Oh my gosh! a friend of ours has one and I swear they are absolutely cuddly! I have been wanting an indoor fufu dog but the extra grooming makes me think twice.

Chow Chow dogs are really cute and fluffy but expensive to maintain. I'll stick to Bichon Frise, Labs or Golden Retrievers.

I feed my Millie the Royal Canine (for adults) brand. She prefers it more than the Pedigree.

This dog really resembles a panda. It looks so lovingly cuddly. How is it with children?
