The Kimekai Chow Chows Showtime Gallery

Kimekai has enjoyed consistent recognition from judges across the spectrum and world. Enjoy our memories of these unforgettable moments from the "In Show" line up and Special Events by invitation or qualification . Always owner handled and groomed - I am proud to have 100% success rate in showing my chow chows to championship  and beyond.

At dogshows we believe that "Competition is a by-product of productive work, not its goal. A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others." ( Ayn Rand ).
