Japanese Chin are an ancient breed, and thought to be one of the first dogs owned by nobility to function only as companions. This toy breed is considered to be among the most cat-like of dogs, with an independent attitude and a tendency to groom themselves with their front paws. Chin are also alert and intelligent little dogs with a wonderful sense of balance and an affinity for high perches - another cat-like quality.
Japanese Chin are generally healthy, but their shorter snouts and soft, silky fur do require some special consideration when choosing the perfect products for these loyal little dogs. Some of the best products for Japanese Chin include:
