Tangla  Chows is a small hobby kennel located in the beautiful Pacific NW.  My love of the Chow Chow started over twenty years ago and has evolved into many years of joy and fulfillment for this wonderful breed.   

I saw my first chow at a ceramic shop when I was 18.   I wasn't sure if it was a lion or a bear or what it was.  I asked the shop owner what it was and she replied, "that's a chow."  It was instant love.  That day changed my life forever.  I can't imagine not having a chow in my life.  

When it came time to choose a kennel name, I spent hours at the local library going through Chinese dictionaries.  (This was before the internet).  I was looking for a name with meaning.  I finally came across Tang La in a Mongolian Dictionary.  It means "Sugar Sweet."  

Presently, there are five chows housed at Tangla,  
Willie, Cesca, McKenna, Ginger & Spicy.
