The Miniature Pinscher has been in existence for about 200 years. He originated in Germany and was used as a ratter. Not to be confused with the Doberman. The Japanese Chin is believed to have gotten its start in China. It was later received as a gift to Japanese nobility who in turn gifted this canine to an American - Matthew Perry in 1853.

Brushing once per week and perhaps wiping the Chin-Pin with a damp cloth should keep the coat clean and silky. Be watchful of moisture accumulating in the ear.

Ideal Environment

The Chin-Pin will make a great family pet, but is best suited for older children. He is a happy and energetic hybrid. He is curious and will chase other animals, so beware if a door opens, he\'ll probably lead you on a merry chase. For this reason, he should be on a leash unless in his yard. Also note; they tend to be climbers as well.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
