We recognise that Shar Pei’s do not behave like other dogs.
Our whole approach is to minimise the trauma of a visit to the vets for both dog and owner.
Traditional training and behavioural techniques are often not appropriate for Shar peis and vet schools do not specifically train students how to handle this breed of dog.
Over the last 10 years our approach to the Shar pei breed has changed completely. Historically we saw Shar peis which we thought were aggresive but in actual fact it was our approach which made them respond in this way – not the dogs temperament.
We try to do as much as possible with the owner present and find that our finely honed techniques has transformed the experience for us, the Shar pei and the owner.
