Welcome to WinkChows:
WinkChows is a small kennel located near Denver, Colorado.
We, Salome and Richard Winker, fell in love with Chow Chows in 2002, when we had purchased our first puppy boy, Simba, from Penny Spencer (kennel name Kwala-T Chows, see Links). Under her experienced guidance, we've learned about showing Chow Chows in conformation and about breeding, whelping and raising puppies.
In November 2006, we had our first litter without assistance, whelped by Salome and raised mostly by Richard, who is working at home.
Our primary goal is to breed well-socialized Quality Chow Chows, in order to prove WRONG the bad reputation Chow Chows unfortunately have in America.
We are trying to breed and raise our Chow Chows for peaceful temperament and sweet disposition, but they still do have their own mind!
After all, they are one of the smartest dog breeds: very distinctive, with a strong sense of independence, a stubborn approach to things they desire, but complete lack of interest if they think <this is so not worth it!> (very much like a cat), an amazing memory, and a life-long loyalty to their owner(s).
