Shar-Pei is a bit of a snob. He is naturally reserved around people he doesn’t know and stays away when introduced. Intensive socialization at a young age is necessary to prevent him from becoming too territorial or aggressive. Only family members receive the overwhelming loyalty of this independent, alert and intelligent dog who watches the world go by in a calm and dignified manner. Shar-Pei is quiet in the house. He is an incredibly good guard dog and rarely barks except during play. If you hear him, you should go see what has caught his attention. A short brisk walk meets his exercise needs. This is a strong, confident dog that learns quickly, so don’t put off training. Shar Pei is independent and willful. Be firm but never harsh or physical with him. Teach him early on to accept grooming procedures such as nail trimming, ear cleaning and tooth brushing. You never want your Shar-Pei to learn that he can physically scare you into stopping these actions. Like most dogs, the Shar-Pei does not like having its feet touched and does not like its nails trimmed. It also applies to other methods. The Shar-Pei is a guard dog that has hunted and fought with other dogs. Most Shar-Pei’s do not care for the company of other dogs and are easily provoked into aggression. A securely fenced yard will prevent him from getting into fights with other dogs or trying to expand his territory to cover the entire block. Start training your puppy the day you bring him home. Even at eight weeks old, he is able to soak up anything you can teach him. Don’t wait until he’s 6 months old to start training or you’ll have a stronger dog to deal with. If possible, get him into puppy preschool when he’s 10 to 12 weeks old, and socialize, socialize, socialize. However, keep in mind that many puppy training sessions require certain vaccines (such as kennel cough) to be up to date, and many vets recommend limited exposure to other dogs and public places until puppy vaccinations (including rabies, distemper and parvovirus) have been completed . Instead of formal training, you can start training your puppy at home and socialize him with family and friends until puppy vaccinations are completed. Talk to the breeder, describe exactly what you are looking for in a dog and ask for help in choosing a puppy. Breeders see the puppies daily and can give incredibly accurate advice once they know something about your lifestyle and personality. Whatever you want from a Shar-Pei, look for one whose parents have a nice personality and who have been well socialized from an early puppyhood.
