Code Of Ethics

  • I am a member of the Chinese Shar-Pei Club of America, and as such, I am committed to the care, protection and advancement of this breed.
  • I believe that I have a lifetime commitment to any dog I have bred or obtained; be it a beloved companion and pet, a show, obedience, or service dog or a dog that I have rescued or accepted back for whatever reason.
  • I will not breed my Shar-Pei while it is still too young, after it has become too old, too often for its own good or too closely together for its health to be maintained or if any medical tests or screenings indicate that the dog should not be bred.
  • I will take care of the physical needs of my Shar-Pei, daily providing quality food and clean water, clean living spaces, healthy exercise, regular and proper veterinary care.
  • I will take care of the emotional needs of my Shar-Pei giving proper socialization with family members and other humans as well as all other animals, especially other dogs, and also giving it stimulating activity and playtime to keep it alert.
  • I will never abuse my Shar-Pei, cause it intentional harm or pain, involve it in any blood sport, or place it to any kind of breeding or research facility.
  • I will be honest in my dealings with those from whom I purchase dogs as well as those to whom I sell any dogs. I will truthfully and openly inform them of any potential health problems and concerns as well as known health issues. I will provide a full pedigree along with any information I have about my dogs lines. I will provide full disclosure in my contract and I will readily accept back any Shar-Pei which I place out into another home.
  • I will be courteous to my fellow exhibitors - both in the ring and out. I will never do anything that might cause disruption, hardship or difficulty for another exhibitor at a show. I will be gracious in both winning and losing - realizing that all of us are there to do and try our best. I will be helpful to the novice exhibitor - knowing how much it meant to me when I was one. I will do my best to earn respect from, and show respect to others involved in this breed and the sport of purebred dogs. I will try to keep in mind that my behavior, and that of my dogs, reflects on all members of my chosen community - realizing that bad behavior either inside or outside the ring will do more harm than any ribbon may be worth.
  • I will at all times do my best for my club, my breed and especially my dogs.
  • I am a member of the Chinese Shar-Pei Club of America, and am proud to be one.
