Choosing the Best High-Protein Japanese Chin Dog Food

In regard to weight, the Japanese Chin is a very small dog generally weighing 7-11 pounds. The Japanese Chin is also considered a very small dog in regard to height, with an average height of 8-11 inches. If you're trying to figure out the optimal dog food for your Japanese Chin, you should definitely consider the option of a high-protein dog food like those available from Spot & Tango. The Japanese Chin is an AKC Registered breed in the 'Toy Group' with roots originating back to China. The loving, charming and noble Japanese Chin with a somewhat reserved demeanor, generally does particularly well on a high-protein dog food. This is thanks, in part to, its very small size combined with its moderately active energy levels.

The perfect dog for the millions of people that live in the city, the American Kennel Club's 'Toy Group' make up breeds like the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, the Maltese and of course the Japanese Chin. But does a dog of such small size truly need a high-protein dog food? Yes, we believe small dogs like those in the AKC's Toy group, including the Japanese Chin, can benefit from a high-protein diet. For example, take the Japanese Chin small frame of 8-11 inches and weight of only 7-11 pounds. If put on a diet that's full of fillers versus lean proteins, the Japanese Chin could easily become obese or, due to lack of nutrient dense high-protein, become a shadow of their typically charming, loving, noble self!

The Japanese Chin is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Japanese Chin could benefit from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in high-protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of a moderately active Japanese Chin. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Japanese Chin. In fact, dogs that don't receive enough protein can actually experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, a high-protein dog food that's optimal for the Japanese Chin is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a moderately active Japanese Chin.


The Japanese Chin is a very small, very small dog weighing in at over 7 pounds.
