I have been involved in Showing, Training and Breeding since 1989.
In 2019 I decided to breed and show Japanese Chin.
I was looking for a smaller breed, that I could physically manage easily
because of the many injuries I have obtained from my job as a Firefighter
and that I could enjoy showing in Conformation, and of course, able to do dog sports with.

Japanese Chin are also a "wash and go" breed, despite their very elegant appearance.
I really liked that the Chin are still unique, fairly rare and special
and do are not known for any major Health Issues.
(Although I have still done DNA and OFA health clearances on my Chin)
The known feature of this breed being quiet, almost barkless, also really appealed to me.
The Japanese Chin really did fit the bill for me.

Japanese Chin while looking so regal, are actually very comical
I'm laughing all the time over their antics.
They have a way of making each day full of fun.
And they don't bark !
Seriously, unless their owner encourages it, you will not hear a chin bark.
When frustrated with their owners the do make a "woooh woooooh" sing song noise.
While they are an "alert" breed, that have endless energy, they are not hyper
and require very little exercise, content to sleeping or amusing themselves.


INFORMATION:
Japanese Chin are a toy breed, weighing 7-11 lbs.
The well known breed trait, is their wide eyed, look of astonishment
achieved because of the "SMALL" amount of white showing in the inner corners of the eyes.
This breed is fearless and very inquisitive. Their curiosity combined with their
wide eyed innocent look, will certainly have you laughing at what they get into.
They are just little clowns.

The Japanese Chin house trains, and will ask to go outside
by pacing or scratching at the door, or ringing a bell if you have one.
Keeping a pee pad by the exit door will help a great deal.
Unlike other toy breeds, the Chin is not prone to barking
and if it is the only dog in the house, you may never hear them bark at all.
When irritated with their humans, they do object with this "whooo whooo"
which is totally endearing.

Another unusual trait of the Chin is his tendency blow out of his nose,
resulting in a fine mist of exhalation, also known by Chin fanciers as a "snizzle."
This is not the sign of a respiratory infection, but instead is due to his flat face.
Reverse sneezing is also common in the Chin and is not usually a cause for concern.

Their coat is medium length, fine, and soft and easy to maintain
with just running a comb through their coat weekly.
If you bath them weekly, you will get less shedding
and a more impressive flowing coat.
Quiet, funny, clean, easy maintenance coat.
You could not find a breed more perfect for apartment or small space living
