All that these cute little dogs want is to receive and give love and affection and there is not one bit of anger or hostility in their bones. They don’t need long walks and make very happy lap dogs.
Japanese Chins are very elegant dogs with a beautiful coat, big forehead and a flat face, which can sometimes cause breathing problems. People who do not know the breed might mistake them for Kings Charles Cavaliers, but their looks are different and actually quite unique. They commonly have a white forehead and white muzzle with black, red, brownish or even yellow-coloured patches around their eyes. Their coats can come in different colours, and black and white versions often look like panda bear cubs!
They make perfect apartment dogs and bond best with one owner, whose company and sole attention they enjoy. Japanese Chins can easily be kept as family dogs, but would prefer a single owner household. They are happy to not leave the house much as long as they are trained and played with at home. These dogs love to perform tricks and chase the ball for some entertainment for themselves and their owners.
Their coat is very fine and long and feels like silk, especially at the tips. To keep it shiny, daily brushing is recommended.
