The Ultimate Chinese Crested Guide

About Chinese Crested

The Chinese Crested dog is a unique and eye-catching breed that comes in two distinct varieties: the hairless, with soft, silky hair on its head (the “crest”), tail (the “plume”), and feet (the “socks”), and the Powderpuff, covered with a soft, straight coat. Despite their delicate appearance, these small, lively dogs are known for their affectionate and playful nature, making them excellent companions.

Grooming

Grooming

Chinese Cresteds do not shed much. As such they’re considered hypoallergenic, making them ideal for owners with allergies.

The fact that they have wash-and-wear coats also means they don’t need frequent bathing. On average, they should be bathed once every 10 to 15 days.

During this process, start by giving them a gentle preliminary bath to get rid of any dirt and debris. Next, you can give them a thorough bath but use the mildest dog shampoo you can get.

Origins

Chinese Cresteds are among the oldest dog breeds. Due to this, not much is known about these creatures.

The best guess of how they came to be is that a giant hairless breed was once brought to China. The Chinese then decided to breed down this hairless dog to a smaller size.

Soon after, the dogs started gaining a lot of popularity. This is because they were skilled at exterminating vermin from the Chinese vessels. So as the Chinese merchants sailed across the world, they took these dogs along.

It is these voyages that led to the Cresteds being introduced in other regions worldwide. This explains why variations of the breed were found in Egypt, Turkey and Central America.

Key Characteristics Of Chinese Cresteds

Are Chinese Cresteds Family-Friendly?

Yes. They make excellent pets because of their playfulness and affection . Plus, they get along well with people and other pets.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Chinese Cresteds may suffer from:

Progressive Retinal Atrophy

Lens luxation

A serious eye condition where the lens dislocates from its normal position, often causing pain and vision impairment, necessitating prompt veterinary intervention.

Glaucoma

A condition characterized by increased intraocular pressure, leading to optic nerve damage, vision loss, and potential blindness if not promptly diagnosed and treated.

Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease

A hip joint disorder involving the degeneration of the femoral head, leading to pain, lameness, and potential joint deformity.

Nature / Temperament

Outgoing, enthusiastic, sweet-tempered and alert.

Suitable Environment

The Chinese Crested thrives in a variety of living environments, making them ideal pets for both apartment dwellers and those with more spacious homes. Their small size and moderate energy levels mean they don’t require a lot of space to roam, but they do enjoy regular playtime and interaction with their family members. These dogs are particularly sensitive to extreme weather conditions; the hairless variety needs protection from the sun and cold, necessitating clothing or sunscreen in summer and warm garments in winter.

Other Considerations

● There are two main varieties of the Chinese Crested: the hairless and powderpuff. Hairless Cresteds only have hair on their heads and legs. These are the most common. In contrast, the latter type have long silky coats covering their whole bodies.
● Chinese Cresteds are witty escape artists. They are not afraid of heights; they can climb fences and jump from elevated areas.
● These dogs also come in many different colours. They can range from slate to chocolate and pink.
● Due to their exposed skin, they’re susceptible to the same skin conditions that affect humans. Thus, you should keep an eye out for problems such as acne, rashes and sunburns.
● A lot of Chinese Cresteds have allergic reactions to wool and lanolin. As such, avoid clothing them in these fabrics.

How can I take good care of my Chinese Crested?

Nutrition

Chinese Cresteds have moderate energy levels, which translates to minimal dietary needs. On average, they consume 0.5 to 1 cup of good quality dog food every day.

Another important thing to note is that Cresteds have very sensitive kidneys. As a result, they shouldn’t be fed vitamin supplements. Such citrus products contain high amounts of ascorbic acid. The ascorbic acid can cause stomach upset or worse, infections.

Similarly, steer clear from high-carb dog food products and red meats. These too can also result in an upset stomach.

Grooming

Brush their coats two or three times a week

Exercise

Being a small breed, Cresteds don’t need too much exercise. 30 minutes to an hour of exercise every day is enough. This can be accomplished by taking them for short walks.

But, if it’s cold, rainy or snowy outside, you can meet their exercise demands through indoor play.

Training

Training Chinese Cresteds is fairly easy. The only thing you need to keep in mind is to be consistent. Also, training should start early so that they adopt good habits when they’re still young.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Chinese Crested Questions

No, they are not. These dogs make good family pets, but they are too tiny for kids’ rough and tumble play. Therefore, they’re better suited for families with older children.

No, they don’t. Small and toy dog breeds have a tendency to bark, especially when they’re left to their own devices. But Chinese Cresteds are not a yappy lot. They only bark when they want to draw your attention to something suspicious.

These dogs can be crossbred with other breeds. Examples include:

  • The Crested Beagle – a cross of a Chinese Crested and a Beagle
  • The Crested Dachshund – a cross of Chinese Crested and a Dachshund
  • The China Jack – a cross between the Chinese Crested and a Jack Russell Terrier

Chinese Cresteds for sale costs between $600 and $1200 to adopt a Chinese Crested puppy from a reputable breeder.
