Characteristics of a Sharpei
If you are thinking about getting a Sharpei, know that this snorting is part of life, and snoring too. If this is the first time you get a dog, Sharpei probably would not be the recommendation, according to Michele Welton on Your Pure Bred Puppy. This is a confident, strong-willed, dominant dog. Someone already experienced with training a dog by being consistent, respectful of a dog’s independence, while earning the dog’s respect, would do better with a Sharpei.
This breed certainly has a unique look. They don’t bark much. They need only moderate exercise. They are naturally clean, so housebreaking would be easy. It’s important to socialize a Sharpei early because his territorial instincts are strong. Expose them early on to different people, so they get a feel of what good guys feel like. This way, he won’t be suspicious of all strangers when he grows up.
The Sharpei can do fine living in the city, as long as he gets his exercise. If you live on a farm, be sure your fences are secure because they have a hunting instinct, and they might bother your livestock. Usually, unless they are provoked, Sharpei mind their own business.
