Welcome to website of Smooth Chow-Chow Kennel "LOVE STORY"
Hello and thank you for visiting our website.
First of all I would like to say a few words about us and our kennel. We bought our first chow-chow in 1993. And Bonya (Bonnie Smoothland) appeared to be a smooth i.e. short-coated chow-chow.
Having collided with absence of the information about smooth chows, with their
small quantity in our country, we have decided that it’s necessary "to struggle" somehow
with it. In fact these plush dogs have the right to be known and loved as well
as their fluffy brothers!
I think that smooth-coated chows undeservedly stay in "shadow" of their fluffy
colleagues. In fact good smooth chow causes not less surprise and admiration
of people than fluffy one. Unfortunately we have too small amount of them here
in Russia and majority of people who want to have a chow-chow even don’t know
about this type of breed.
In 1999 we have registered the kennel "Love Story" for breeding and popularization
of smooths in Russia. Certainly in conditions of a city apartment our opportunities
are rather limited but nevertheless we try to do our best to make people love
smooth chow-chows and know about them as much as possible.
I hope you will find something interesting about these remarkable dogs on this site.
Concerning mountains… Dogs are not our only hobby. We with my husband are big admirers of mountain skis and tourism. Therefore the images of mountains were used in design of this website.
