Originally a hunting and working breed, there are many activities suitable for your Chow Chow. You can both enjoy a varied and fun time together. Bear in mind that no Chow Chow should be exposed to overly strenuous activities before it has reached the age of 18 months. Before attempting any form of activity with your Chow, it is strongly advised to have it checked over by your veterinarian who can make recommendations on the type & amount of excercise suitable for your Chow Chow.
