A breed of shar pei dogs is not for people with a weak character! Confident in themselves, independent and independent, sharpei feel their superiority and strength with all the fibers of the soul, and the royal self-esteem may seem somewhat arrogant. To demonstrate the seriousness of the character of the shar pei is ready for any dog ​​that dares to show disrespect. The owner of this lively breed must be strong in spirit no less than the dog himself, otherwise the shar pei will quickly take the place of the main in the house and dictate the conditions from the position of the leader, which can not be allowed if you want to save yourself, irreplaceable nerves and surrounding things intact. Not everything is so serious, but control is needed unequivocally, and the owner is obliged to monitor the upbringing.

Character sharieya assertive, but the dog does not need any extra gestures. It is enough to give for a paddock about 1 hour a day. Walk or play a little in an active game - Shar Pei still need physical activity, which will make him squander and be calmer. Take a shar pei can a single person or a married couple, a large family with grown-up children and ... in general, there are no restrictions, except that a family with young children needs to monitor the communication of the dog and the baby. To give the dog to the child and entrust the education is better not earlier than from 12-14 years. But even then help the child in the process of training and education. Do not throw it alone to solve difficult problems.

History of the breed (shortly).

Most likely the ancestors of shar pei were either ancient mastiffs or smooth-haired chow-chow. Sharpei and Chow Chow lived at the same time, and in their appearance there are similarities. In addition, the blue-black color of the tongue is found only in these two breeds. The age of shar pei is at least 3000 years, and in the past this dog participated in battles. This is eloquently told by the physique of the breed: prickly, short wool, which the enemy is uncomfortable to hold in the mouth, folds on the skin and powerful, massive jaws. But soon the career of the fighter was over, as large and powerful dogs were brought to China.

After a while Shar Pei began to protect the houses of the peasants and even helped hunters in their business. Already in the 1940s, after the communists came to power, the breed was practically exterminated only because it was considered a symbol of a privileged class. In 1971, rock lovers began its active recovery, buying dogs and building plans for further revival. Soon things started to recover, and now sharpei is one of the most popular breeds in Russia.

Contrary to the widespread misconception that caring for shar pei requires the owners of special knowledge and a lot of time, in fact, it is very easy to take care of these creatures. It is enough to work from time to time with a brush (with a short bristle or rubberized) with the dog's hair, bathe 1-2 times a year, together with a special shampoo for dogs, from time to time wipe the eyes and sometimes wipe the wrinkles on the face. When moulting, you can comb out the dog on the street so that small wool does not stay at home, and be sure to accustom the animal to carry the procedure smoothly from an early age, rewarding for tranquility with delicacy and praise.

Education and training sharieja.

For a beginner, the training of shar pei will not be a task from the lungs. Both stubborn and proud, these dogs will resist the master's demands until the end of their training, but a patient and persistent person will definitely achieve obedience. Sharpei does not need to teach the general course of training, so in case of self-study, teach the pupil to the commands "to me", "fu", "next", "lie", "sit", "place", "give", "aport". These are the most necessary commands that the dog will hear every day, and therefore it is necessary to achieve their unquestioning performance without unnecessary repetition.

Education sharieya and his training can be entrusted to a child whose age reached 12-14 years, even then the parents should be ready to hedge it. The breed is not less easy to educate than to train, but here everything is not so difficult with sufficient desire and patience. Sharpei is not stupid, and if properly explained, he will quickly realize where the toilet is (at home or on the street), that you can not take food from strangers and pick up muck from the floor, it is forbidden to bite the master's arms, legs, chew around things in the house and do everything to be strange. In order that the dog does not shawl, it is necessary to establish clear rules of behavior in the family, which are read in the section "Puppy Education" in the article about the rules of behavior of the dog.
