About Us

The Simple Premise - Happy, Healthy Canines


Camp Wrinkles Chinese Shar-pei Canines started with a simple premise: to show, study the genetic of the breeding lines which are the breed standard and produce healthy offspring. People seek our breeding lines out because our dogs are home raised, trained and love their humans. We have had this breed of dog for over 17 years. We have produced several AKC Champions, a few from the Bred By Class and we pride ourselves in playful pups that grown up to be happy dogs for both the show ring and companion homes. All of our potential customers are screened to be sure the people have a lifestyle to include a dog in their life and that the Chinese Shar-Pei is a good match for them. Our puppies and adults are cared for in our house and on our acreage in Connecticut so they have great personalities,, get along with people and other dogs and are obedience and leash trained.  An application is required and we do invite you to visit us once the application is approved and cleared. 

We are located in central Connecticut USA near the Connecticut River. 

The property has several fenced in areas to keep the dogs safe at all times. This also provides different areas to seperate and train the puppies as they grow. Our puppies and adults understand the pack mentality here at Camp Wrinkles Chinese Shar-Pei.

We hope you understand what we do -

A-Produce dogs to the breed standard selectively.

B-Provide  the right nutrition- probiotics in their water, Nu-Vet Vitamins daily and the correct protein in the dry food our breed eats on a daily basis

C-Training- leash training, socialize with people and other animals and outdoor socializing

D-Vaccines- minimal vaccines that are necessary for the Chinese Shar-Pei- rabies at 6 months, Neopar and Neovac series as a puppy and annual wellness exams.

THERE ARE NO DEALS WITH PURCHASING A DOG - only many vet bills for an unhealthy dog. If you don't understand the genetics, disease a canine may get or this breed may have in its lineage, then don't purchase the dog. There are expenses in owning and caring for a dog- food - $75 to $100 per 30 lb bag, probiotics for the water, Nu-Vet Vtaimins- $60 a bottle for a 90 day supply, bathe and dremmel nails, vaccines and other care as the need arises.

Chinese Shar-Pei

NO- it is not Sharpeis, sharpei or pei- it is Chinese Shar-Pei. That is the breed name - one Chinese Shar-Pei or 20 Chinese Shar-Pei. 

Funny Questions People Ask Me

1- Do you have to clean between the wrinkles? No No NO. The dog needs a bath once every 3 months - real simple. They need their nails dremmeled every other week and they need their ears cleaned.

2-Are they fighting dogs? No No NO

3-Do they get along with other dogs, children or animals? You need to train you and the new dog that you get to merge with your family at home. The training should be at AKC obedience class weekly for 8 to 10 weeks.

4- What kind of food should I feed my dog? Ask your breeder. Go to our nutrition page for some suggestions. Don;t rely on FB chat groups for your answer. Ask your veterinarian as well.

5-How smart s this breed? I have smart dogs because I train them and give them a job to do if they are bored. By that I mean go to a Barn Hunt class or rally and compete with your dog and have fun.

Don't Assume Anything

Your point of contact is your breeder. They are your liaison  and know what is best for their breed of dog. Call them.
