Compiled by my wonderful friend and long time chowist Mary Wuest (past historian of the CCCI) the Chow standard below is a comparison of all 4 AKC Chow Standards which have been in play since 1906. The changes are marked in black, blue and pink lettering to show the differences made at each revision. This was an incredible amount of work and the breed will benefit greatly from the dedication of all chow enthusiasts who can acknowledge the breed’s glorious past as a window toward the future. Thank you Mary!!!
