CAN CH Seafoam's Naked N Nauti
We are located in beautiful Nova Scotia. From our front door to the ocean is about a 10 minute drive. This blog is our 'home' on the web for now. I find it easier to add quick updates & pics. I have to admit our cresteds are spoiled rotten. We do not have kennels, our dogs sleep in our beds and have the run of the house. They enjoy following me about as I go from room to room. They are great foot warmers but they are also show dogs.
I'm a second generation dog show nut and I've been involved with dogs since 1983 when my parents bought their first show Collie. They went on to buy their show dogs from one of the top collie kennels at the time Nationview. With a blue merle named Kerrie and a tri called Tega, they traveled around the Maritimes and to ON to shows for many years. Eventually they moved on to Beardies and then attended Crufts and came home with their name on the waiting list for a pup from a PBGV kennel they saw while there. Years later they are still owned by two wonderful PBGV's and a Tibetan Terrier.
We are a registered member in good standing of the Canadian Kennel Club and belong to the Chinese Crested Club of Canada.
For the dogs safety, we do not accept 'drop ins' , please make an appointment.
Health testing done annually.
Eventually we may have a litter but are happy just to show and enjoy the breed for now.
Please feel free to leave us a comment or two...it lets me know I'm not typing away to myself.
Any questions just send us an
About the Chinese Crested
Chinese Crested Temperament
The Chinese Crested is a small dog with plenty of love and affection to give, and a real love of human company. The Chinese Crested is a dog that is for those with plenty of time to commit and dedicate to their pet, as breed does not like to be neglected. The Chinese Crested has plenty of spirit and is cheerful, playful, and lively. He is also alert, intelligent, and inquisitive, and is quick to learn, although he can be very independent and strong willed. The Chinese Crested loves to climb, play, and perform tricks, and he is very fond of spending time with his owners to the point where he has become known by some as a 'velcro dog'.
The Chinese Crested gets on well with older, considerate children that will be gentle with him, and he also gets along with other pets, although he can sometimes get a little jealous. When it comes to strangers he can be a little reserved and timid. The gentle and bright nature of the Chinese Crested makes him well suited to inexperienced dog owners as well as more experienced owners. It is important that the Chinese Crested is socialized early on. With effective training and early socialization the Chinese Crested can make a great little companion dog and pet.
Chinese Crested Appearance
A little dog, the Chinese Crested comes in two varieties, which include the hairless variety and the powder puff variety. The hairless variety, as the name suggests, has no hair on the body and a crest of silky hair around the head and on the feet and tail, giving it a very elegant and unusual look. The hairless variety is a good choice for those that suffer from allergies. The powder puff variety has long, silky hair all over, which is straight on the outside and soft and silky on the undercoat. The Chinese Crested has an alert and inquisitive expression, and is a very elegant and graceful dog. The weight of the Chinese Crested is around 10-15 pounds, and the height is 11-15 inches.
Chinese Crested Grooming
Grooming will depend on whether you have the hairless or powder puff variety. The hairless simply needs to have a small amount of oil or lotion massaged into the skin to keep it in good condition. The powder puff variety will need to be brushed and combed once or twice a week.
Some Chinese crested dogs are allergic to wool and lanolin.
