Shar Pei

general characteristics

Being an extremely intelligent dog with a developed intuition, the Shar Pei stands out among other breeds for its obedience, although the Shar Pei will demonstrate obedience only when the owner of this dog does a lot of laborious work on its education and training. It is difficult to train a Shar Pei, with some effort you can achieve good results. Being a working dog in their homeland, Shar Pei have not lost these qualities, using the slightest opportunity to win the approval and love of the owner. Shar Pei is a balanced dog, calm and friendly, although, if necessary, it can stand up for itself and its owner. Unprovoked aggression is not typical for Shar-Pei. Proud and independent Shar Pei look very touching when playing with children. The dog is always inferior in the fight to the child, forgiving the child any freedom, never grinning or snarling. But if it is completely unbearable to endure the sometimes rather cruel childish “caresses”, the Shar Pei will proudly retire or hide offendedly, and will do it in such a way that even a child understands: he is offended and does not intend to play any more.


Every owner dreams of seeing his dog healthy, active and cheerful.
And, as you know, the basis of health is proper, nutritious and balanced nutrition. Even if you buy the freshest and highest quality food, buy vitamins and mineral supplements, without a biochemical laboratory, you cannot determine the exact nutritional value of food you cook at home. That’s why PEDIGREE® has developed a special application that will help you evaluate how the diet you feed your pet meets his needs.
Proper nutrition in the first year of a puppy’s life largely determines how healthy and joyful your puppy will be in the future. Taking care of your pet’s health, PEDIGREE® recommends a combination of dry and wet diets to take full advantage of the benefits of both. You can read more about this in the article.
