The Japanese Chin is a purebred dog breed that’s part of the toy group. Also known as the Japanese Spaniel, this dog breed dates back to ancient times. Initially bred in Japan, they bred this doggo to be a lap dog. There’s a lot to love about this dog breed. For instance, they’re charming, loving, and noble.

In addition, the Japanese Chin makes an excellent family companion dog. For instance, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. Also, they’re good with meeting new people and good around young children. They enjoy being around other dogs, as well. However, they need early socialization and training to warm up easily to others. This purebred can be stubborn and independent, so they might be tricky to train. You can hire a professional dog trainer to help you if needed.

Japanese Chin – A Family Dog

Japanese Chins are small dogs. For instance, they can grow to be about eight to 11 inches tall and weigh between seven and 11 pounds. In addition, they have a medium silky coat that requires regular grooming. In addition, this dog breed sheds a moderate amount. So, you’ll want to brush their coat at least two to three times per week to keep the shedding under control. Also, it will keep their coat looking healthy and clean.

When it comes to physical activity, this doggo has low energy levels. They need exercise to stay healthy and fit, so you’ll only need to provide them with about 30 minutes per day. A long walk will be enough to keep them fit. They are also playful, though, so they’ll enjoy time with you in the yard. Due to their size and low-energy needs, the Japanese Chin can live comfortably in an apartment or a bigger house with a fenced-in yard.

Overall, this dog breed has an average lifespan of about ten to 12 years with proper care.
