Need to know Chinese Shar-Pei
These dogs are lovely and loyal but also independent, and they like spending some time on their own with just some toys to entertain them. Because the wrinkles on the Shar-Pei's head retain heat, they are very sensitive to warm weather so it is important that there is some shade available like a kennel or, if he must be walking in the sun, a dog cooler jacket to reflect heat. The Shar-Pei's wrinkly skin earned them a place on Garnier’s anti-wrinkle cream advert.
