Chow Chows have a dense double coat that can either be coarse and medium in length or smooth in texture but short. They have a woolly body coat with considerable thickness around the neck and head area that forms a ruff around the neck and a well-feathered tail that curves towards the back. The coat can be styled in many ways, like the unique-looking Mohawk.
Chow Chows cost between $800 and $1,600. They are popular because they look like big teddy bears, which drives up the price. They require a monthly maintenance cost of about $100, most of which will come from grooming. Surprisingly, they do not eat that much food despite their size because of their low-maintenance personality. This means you do not need to spend too much time with them either.
