SHOULD I BREED MY CHOW CHOW?
Ethical, responsible breeding is an expensive and emotional undertaking. You must start out with a good KUSA registered bitch, choose the best KUSA registered dog for the mating, undergo all the health checks she needs, ensure that the dog you want to use also passes the same health checks.
In addition, you should take temperament, pedigree lines and the future of those puppies and the breed into consideration. By the time you do this, you've invested a lot of time and effort and you are still not guaranteed of the outcome.
Responsible breeders keep puppies for a minimum of 8 weeks before sending them to their homes after they have received the necessary vet checks and inoculations.
The Chow Chow Club of Gauteng promotes responsible breeding and this includes the certification of health checks done on potential parents, temperament issues and also that the breeder undertakes to be responsible for that puppy for its lifetime – and in the event of the owner being unable to look after the Chow Chow during its lifetime, the breeder will take that puppy back and find a replacement home.
