Majestueux Chow Chows
Hi, I'm Tricia C.
Welcome to Majestueux Kennels, home to the Chow Chow! We are situated on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, and over the past years our home has become a haven for our show dogs, and family pets. We are long-time established breeders and showers, and whilst our Chow Chow program is in its infancy - started in 2015 - it's growing strength to strength. Our current stunning Chows have done exceptionally well in the show ring.

Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
We take the pups out to meet guests & neighbors, take them for rides in the car, and try to expose them to as much pleasant human contact as possible. We also socialise the pups by having them interact with other dogs within our home and move them into different yards to get them used to different environments with different objects.
All our puppies come vaccinated (C3), wormed (at 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks of age), and vet-checked (at birth, and then again at 6 and 8 weeks of age). We also conduct extensive research into all lines that are a part of our breeding program, checking immediate relations, as well as cousins, aunts/uncles and beyond, as thorough as we possibly can. Our current owned breeding stock have all been DNA-tested for genetic…
They are raised in the home, and have access to various parts of the house and house yards, ensuring that they are used to normal household noises. They are raised with various sound effects playing in the background, to help prepare them for the rest of their lives. Our pup day-yard is a sectioned part of the house that has various stimulating areas to encourage the pups to become confident adults. They are socialised with our dogs,…

Majestueux Chow Chows conducts 3 additional tests available for the Chow Chow.
This is a disease affecting the spinal cord of older dogs, initially causing wobbliness and eventually hindlimb paralysis. It can affect a wide range of breeds. There is now a DNA test that can indicated if a breeding dog is carrying this disease.
A heart certificate means the breeder has had their breeding dogs examined to confirm they are not affected by any common heart conditions which might be passed down genetically to the puppies. This can be done by a veterinary cardiologist or a skilled GP vet. Common heart conditions include Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM) and Myxomatous Mitral Valve Disease (MMVD).
Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI), also known as ‘brittle bone disease’, is an inherited disease in both humans and animals, causing bone fragility and fracturing. As it is a genetic disease, breeding parents can be tested, to ensure it is not passed onto their puppies.
About the Breeder
A little about us
Hi, I'm Tricia, from Majestueux Kennels! We are renowned as a British Bulldog breeder, but have recently extended our breeding program to Chows. Our breeding program has been developed from select lines, selected for health and breed standard, to produce top quality show dogs and pets.
Why we got involved in breeding
As an established British Bulldog breeder, we started breeding Chows because we were always standing in front of them in the show ring, and we became obsessed with them! We were looking to introduce a second breed to our show team, and the Chows are almost the opposite to Bulldogs in personality! A little more aloof, but just the loveliest dogs - we just adore them!
Our special touch
We breed for type not trend. Breeding for type results in healthy quality dogs. Our dogs have had a vast range of health tests way beyond what is required, we have the proof that when bred to type (breed Standard) health comes naturally. We breed family pets that are also show quality, and take great care to do so. We are of the strong belief that even if you are looking for a pet - not a show dog - that you should still have the opportunity to have 'show quality'. Dogs in our breeding program have been show champions, or come from champion dogs that hale from Europe, USA, UK, South Africa and New Zealand.
