Chow Chow

The Chow Chow has an innate sense of dignity and may seem aloof and detached. They may be restrained with their affections and are very independent. They are usually well mannered but can be protective and suspicious of strangers. They can learn, but do not have a strong desire to please their masters and must see the point of commands given. They may have limited peripheral vision and should always be approached from the front. Chow Chows may be self-willed to the point of seeming obstinate.
