A brief presentation of the Golden Pei

The Golden Pei becomes a medium to large dog, both caring and trustworthy. If your dog leans more towards the Shar Pei, it will need to engage in a lot of socialization and training as it grows, just so it understands how to behave with others and pets. Normally, they're ideal family dogs, but they can be touchy when he's eating. Teach your children not to tease the dog with food, or pull its tail or ears, especially at mealtimes. The Golden Pei is an adorable dog that is devoted to the family and has a friendly, outgoing personality. They love to train, although they can have a stubborn sequence that requires patience and calm to overcome.

History of the Golden Pei

There's still a lot we don't know about specific cross-breed dogs. While there have always been, and always will be, accidental mixes of purebred dogs, their intentional crossing is a fairly new concept. In an effort to create new breeds with hopefully improved traits, breeders combine two or more well-known dog breeds into one. However, we know very little about the history of individual designer dogs. The origin of the Chinese Shar Pei and Golden Retriever mix is as mysterious as that of most hybrid breeds. Probably, the Golden Pei was created in the last two decades, somewhere in the USA. Of course, designer dogs may be a new and rare phenomenon, but we can learn more about them if we study their parents.

 

        

A little of the Golden Retriever

        
The Golden Retriever is thought to have originated in Victorian times. With strong ancestry from Retriever, Spaniel and possibly Setter, the Golden Retriever was originally bred in Scotland. Improvements in firearms made the need for a Retriever-type dog even more widespread, and the Golden Retriever was bred and refined for this purpose. Excellent at his job, his mouth was described as both gentle and powerful when retrieving waterfowl. Accepted as Flat Coats (Golden) at the United Kennel Club of England in 1911, they were then called the Retriever (Golden and Yellow), then the name was changed to Golden Retriever in 1920. In America and registered with the American Kennel Club, they became members of the Sporting Group.

A little of the Shar Pei

Guardian, shepherd, fighter and hunter, the Chinese Shar Pei is considered an ancient breed. Possibly from the Han dynasty, the Shar Pei, with its blue-black tongue, could be a descendant of the Chow Chow. Almost wiped out at one point, Hong Kong businessman Matgo Law helped save the breed. Once in America, the dogs were bred and the line renewed. The Chinese Shar Pei Club of America was founded in 1974 and the American Kennel Club accepted the breed in 1991.

Appearance of the Golden Pei

The mix between the Golden Retriever and the Chinese Shar Pei has produced a very attractive dog that carries itself with pride and confidence. The robust body is generally slightly longer than it is tall, and if your dog likes Shar Pei, the tail will curl over the back. Four sturdy legs carry this aristocratic-looking dog, and the paws are rounded with high, arched toes. The chest is broad and proportionate to the body. The Golden Pei's face is irresistible, with short, drooping erect ears and a long muzzle with a scissor bite. The eyes are deep and almond-shaped, and they are very observant dogs.

Temperament of the Golden Pei

The Golden Pei is a gentle, good-natured dog, very attentive to the family and trustworthy. They are intelligent, affectionate dogs that blend in perfectly with the family. With strangers, they can be a little wary until they get to know them. They are not aggressive, but can sometimes be very strong-willed. Training the Golden Pei needs patience because of this, but with gentle and consistent training, it will respond well. Early training and lots of socialization are important with this dog to produce a well-mannered, obedient dog who knows how to act with other humans and pets. These dogs are full of life and love a challenge, so they respond well to play and difficult mental tasks. As much as they love to be part of the physical action, they also enjoy being close and bonding with their human. They'll happily snuggle up and comfort their human and family members.

Needs and activities of the Golden Pei

The Golden Pei loves a daily walk or run and the chance to get out and enjoy some social time in the neighborhood. They can adapt to apartment living if their daily exercise needs are met. A yard is perfect, as they'll explore every inch of it. Play is welcome, and they'll be the last to stop playing. Heat can affect these dogs though, so a cooler climate is ideal and helps them stay cool on hot days, save the activity for the cooler times of day. A visit to the dog park will always be a welcome break for your Golden Pei.

Maintenance of the Golden Pei

The Golden Pei has a beautiful coat that requires moderate grooming. You'll need to brush his coat once a day with a strong bristle brush to remove loose hair and prevent matting. This will also help distribute the natural oils and keep the coat shiny and healthy. They only need a bath if necessary, and using a special dog shampoo will help prevent skin allergies. Their ears will also need gentle wiping to remove any dirt and check for inflammation. Twice a week or more, you'll need to brush his teeth for oral hygiene. And just to finish off the grooming, check the length of the nails, but be careful not to cut them too short.
