If you are considering getting a Shar Pei, you'll want to check out the incredible book "The Complete Guide to the Shar Pei". It's written in an easy-to-understand way but still has the expert knowledge to help any new owner successfully raise their Shar Pei from puppy to old-age. It's widely available, so pick up a copy if you see one, or click here to grab one on Amazon.
Bred to guard, herd, and hunt, the Shar-Pei is a devoted and independent-thinking breed. Their name actually means “sand skin” and refers to their distinct bristle-like coat. Their history as a guard dog makes them wonderful watchdogs, but they need to be trained not to overreact when strangers or new dogs come into their home. The Shar-Pei is intelligent but they are strong-willed and need consistent and early training. They are quick learners, though, so training shouldn’t be too difficult. Early socialization will help the Shar-Pei get along with other dogs and children. The Shar-Pei’s distinctive looks – their folds of skin loose wrinkles – along with their devoted and intelligent traits make them great companions.
