The Japanese Chin is an ancient toy breed, whose earliest history is shrouded in mystery. It is safe to say that the breed that we recognize today was developed in Japan. The Japanese Chin was also known as the Japanese Spaniel (up until 1977), in early times they were considered a dog for royalty in Japan and were mainly keep by the wealthy as lap dogs.
They are sweet natured, happy and the perfect size for small living places. They are also quite intelligent and are easy to train.

Grooming- Brush once or twice a week to keep the coat from becoming matted. While shedding (yes, they do shed!) it is a good idea to brush them more frequently. Bath when needed and check ears regularly for infection. Toenails should be clipped and the hair under the feet should be trimmed.

Exercise- they don't require a lot of exercise but enjoy a daily walk and runs off lead.

Health- For Diet and other general dog health information Health/Nutrition
