Japanese Chin

general characteristics

The Japanese Chin (also known as the Japanese Spaniel) is a small and cheerful dog. She has an excellent character and a balanced temperament. They sit quietly on your lap or sleep curled up in a chair, but they will always be happy to play or just run.


Every owner dreams of seeing his dog healthy, active and cheerful.
And, as you know, the basis of health is proper, nutritious and balanced nutrition. Even if you buy the freshest and highest quality products, buy vitamins and mineral supplements, without a biochemical laboratory you will not be able to determine the exact nutritional value of food you cook at home. That’s why PEDIGREE® has developed a special application that will help you evaluate how the diet you feed your pet meets his needs.
Proper nutrition in the first year of a puppy’s life largely determines how healthy and joyful your puppy will be in the future. Taking care of your pet’s health, PEDIGREE® recommends a combination of dry and wet diets to take full advantage of the benefits of both. You can read more about this in the article.
