Do chow chows smell bad?

No, chow chows don’t smell bad. They have hardly any ‘doggy’ odor and like to keep themselves clean.

To keep them smelling sweet there are just a few things to do:

  • Clean their paws after muddy walks
  • Keep their teeth and gums healthy with dental chewies
  • Avoid fish-based foods
  • Brush them every couple of days
  • Bath them every 6-8 weeks – starting from when they’re puppies
  • Visit a groomer every couple of months for some professional deshedding
