Japanese Chin

The Japanese Chin is one of the most graceful dogs there is. It is no wonder that in the past, this animal was only allowed to be kept by members of the Japanese Imperial family. The Japanese Chin has been one of the national symbols of Japan since 1964.

Very little is known about the origin of the Japanese Chin. Even the country of origin of the dog is disputed. Some claim the dog was bred in China. Still others claim that Buddhist monks deserve this honour and still others say that the dog originated in Korea. There is no doubt, however, that the breed as we know it today was created by Japanese aristocrats. One of the reasons we know so little about the Japanese Chin is that Japan was closed to the West until 1854. The species was unknown in our part of the world until then.

The Japanese Chin is quite empathic. The dog can sense exactly the mood of its owner and will take over that mood. The Japanese Chin knows itself quite well that it is a beautiful dog and doesn't mind to be in the least of the attention. The breed is also quite intelligent and they rarely forget anything. They remember a stranger who was sympathetic to them years ago, but the opposite is also true. Owning the Japanese Chin is a lot of fun, but you have to keep in mind that you have to do something for it. The dog's coat must be brushed every day to prevent tangles.

The education of the Japanese Chin is rarely difficult. This breed likes to do what its owner wants it to do. However, it is very important to take the time to educate him. The dog is intelligent and learns quickly, but that does not mean that it does not take time. Besides, the dogs are very sensitive. When the owner becomes impatient during the education, the dogs take over and become insecure. For this reason, the dog must be brought up in a positive manner and with patience.
