Perky, proud, and playful, the elegant Japanese Chin is less hyperactive and less yappy than many other toy breeds.
Though he does love to play in the yard, he doesn't need much more exercise than that. The yard must be fenced, for he has a spaniel heritage with just enough hunting instincts to chase birds or butterflies into the street.
A lover of comfort, the Japanese Chin enjoys cuddling on laps and snuggling into soft pillows, his soulful eyes inviting pampering, which he accepts graciously. However, you're just as apt to find him perched high on the back of the sofa, for he is an agile climber, light and graceful on his feet, much like a cat.
This gentle yet merry breed insists on attention and interaction and is a terrific pet for senior citizens. At the other end of the spectrum, he is easily overwhelmed by small children and cannot take rough handling or mischief.
Most Japanese Chin are polite with strangers, though a good many individuals are standoffish or timid, so socialization is important. This breed is peaceful with other pets.
Though he has an aristocratic demeanor and definite likes and dislikes, the Japanese Chin is also bright, sensitive, and responsive. The little obedience training he needs will go well if you rely on consistency, praise, and food rewards. #dogvideos#dog#dogplanet#dogs#dogphotography#japanesechin
Short walk this morning as Roger has to be at the veys early for surgery on his eye. I'm sure all will be ok but I still feel apprehensive for him. I took him yesterday as his eye was weeping and had gone cloudy. He has a deep ulcer low down which we think has been caused by his own eyelashes growing inward. He is such a stoic little dog that I had no idea he was in pain #dog#dogs#dogphotography#photography#naturephotography#nature
Walking Together 🚶♀️🐕🐕
We all know the importance of walking our dog, but do we do it correctly?🤔
Experts recommend between two and three walks a day from 20 to 30 minutes, although they can be increased if our pet has a lot of energy.
Many times we do this activity in a hurry, so that our pet does its needs and we go home, preventing our dog from taking his time to sniff.
Letting them sniff is one of the most relevant aspects of his daily walks, since in that way our friends recognise his environment better (they watch the world through their noses)
It is also convenient that they exercise this sense. So when you go out to the park, let your dog sniff everything they want! (avoiding, of course, dangerous places).
The walks keep them in shape and also reinforce the bond between both. It was demonstrated that dogs who go out with their owners to walk become more sociable, with both humans and other dogs.
You will notice that after each walk your dog will return tired and wanting to sleep for a while, preventing hyperactivity, separation anxiety or stress👍😊
