The Chinese Shar-Pei is a strikingly unusual dog. The breed is known for their blue-black tongue and wrinkled appearance. They are extremely intelligent and a loyal guardian. You might want to stoke the breed's intelligence by teaching your dog a wide variety of commands in addition to obedience training. The Shar-Pei will enjoy joining you on walks around the neighborhood or at the dog park. Surprisingly enough, the Shar-Pei is great at tracking and will enjoy games which allow for the activity. You can do tracking activities indoors or outdoors depending on the weather. Anything that stimulates the mind and the body of the Shar-Pei is a great activity for your pup.
The Chinese Shar-Pei is a breed unlike others. While they do need a minimum of daily exercise, the breed is actually rather adaptable to their owner's activity level. If you love to hike, bike, or jog long distances, the Shar-Pei can keep up with you! If you prefer to stay indoors and teach the Shar-Pei obedience or play games such as hide and seek, then the Shar-Pei will be quite happy to oblige you in this as well! Make exercise bonding time for you and your pup, and the both of you will be quite happy.
