How to Choose a Japanese Chin Puppy

If you are looking to purchase a purebred Japanese Chin puppy, do not go to the ads or go to the market. Visit exhibitions, chat with Japanese Chin breeders and owners. Choose a proven cattery with a good reputation. A responsible breeder will ask you many questions and will not refuse to advise you in the future, since he is not indifferent to the fate of the baby.

Get to know the parents of the future pet, study their pedigrees.
Decide why you need Japanese Chin. Will it be a show star, breeding dog, or a fun companion? The answer to this question will determine the class of the dog.
Show class – these are dogs for exhibitions, such puppies are born from elite producers. At the time of purchase, a potential star should be at least 4 – 5 months old – it is difficult to determine earlier which dog will grow from a baby.
Breed class – these are dogs that fully comply with the standard, but, perhaps, not as bright in exterior as their show relatives. Although they may well get good marks at exhibitions. These dogs are involved in breeding.

Pet-class are pets with some exterior flaws. Nevertheless, the joy of communicating with them is no less. They can also participate in exhibitions.

There are non-standard Japanese Chin puppies. They have any exterior defects that block the way to exhibitions and breeding. Such a baby will be the most inexpensive. However, this does not mean at all that he will not be able to become a healthy, cheerful, devoted friend. If you are not interested in exhibitions and breeding, you can opt for such a pet.

Choosing a Japanese Chin male or female is a matter of personal preference. Both are equally affectionate and devoted. But males have a more abundant and elegant coat.

If you have a lot of time, you can take a Japanese Chin puppy at the age of one and a half months. However, if there is not too much free time, it is better to choose a three-month-old puppy.

A good breeder will help you choose the puppy that suits you, will tell you not only about the baby’s parents, but also about more distant ancestors. You must be given a puppy card and veterinary passport. Ask about vaccinations and other veterinary procedures that have been carried out and are yet to come. Specify what and how often the babies were fed. The more questions you ask, the easier it will be in the future.
