These pets have inner pride and independence, despite their obedience and loyalty to the owner. Therefore, you need to be able to put yourself as a leader in order to earn the dog’s respect. Shar-Pei gets along well in a city apartment, he is not inclined to be destructive and make a mess of energy at home. Although these dogs have high energy levels, they need walking and exercise to keep their muscles toned.
If you are looking for a watchdog for your private home, the Shar-Pei is perfect for that. However, please note that the breed has short hair and therefore cannot live outdoors all year round. Shar-Pei understands the owner very well, and often even on an intuitive level. He enjoys spending time with his loved ones more than with his dogs, so accept the fact that you will have to take your pet with you on your trip to the sea, for example.
