Go with the Samoyed! The Chow Chow is a very agressive dog and not very family friendly. They are very protective and dont usuaslly warm up to strangers.
Samoyed are a bit more famly friendly and they do like people.
Answer by drezdogge
they are two very diferent breeds,
samoyed sounds like it would fit better in your home
chows are really loners and like a quiet environment
while samoyeds love a big family and lots of excitement
but they are melodramitic and noisy, and shed alot
Answer by Alex
To any first time dog owners, get a Samoyed, they are an easier and generally friendlier breed. Chow Chows are great, and I grew up with one, however they are an extremely difficult dog to raise, and must be VERY carefully socialized or they will bite. Chows are best for small families of experienced dog raisers, preferably one or two people.
Answer by laldybug
I have been around both the samoyed and chow chow's.
Our best friends have two boys and at one time had a chow chow that bit the one of their children. They need up putting the chow down.
As for the samoyed – they are a loving dog and good with children. Both breeds are high maintenance and need lots of space.
Hope this helps.
Answer by Guest
Samoyed and Chow Chow are similar. And it is no true that Chow Chow is aggresive and bite by the nature. It is true they are very protective and loyal and is very difficult to train them. Any dog could be like that, depends on love and care from the owner.
- A Siberian husky or a Samoyed?
- Is the American Eskimo dog and the Samoyed dog similar?
- Are Chow Chows good for 1st time dog owners?
Answer by André
I do have a Chow Chow and i’ll just say this. Once you get a Chow Chow, you will never like any other dog. This dogs are capable of such loyalty and dedication diferent then any other breed. Its not true that they wont learn, it just require dedication… this kind of dogs are not designed to run after a ball. Please just see the movie of Hatchiko with is a Akito breed very similar to the Chow Chow in terms of temperament and loyalty.
This dogs are not those kind of dogs that jumps and run all over the place, its a quite dog that walks just beside you and wont ever leave you behind.
funny fact, they are not a sociable dogs, you cant intruduce him to a person and expect him to let the person touch him. But they wont bite for sure, they just like to be touch by the owners or from people they are use to lead with.
