Shar-Poo Dog Grooming, Nutrition & Personality Traits Guide For Owners Released

Published March 12, 2024

Doodle Dogs Utopia launched the new Shar-Poo guide to inform owners of the breed about the particular grooming, dietary, and exercise needs of their pets. Shar-Poos, also known as Sharpei-Poodles, Doodle Peis, and Shardoodles, are crossbreeds that blend the well-known characteristics of the poodle with those of the Shar-Pei, a playful Chinese breed known for its distinctive deep wrinkles and blue-black tongue.

In the new guide, Doodle Dogs Utopia notes that Shar-Poos are highly intelligent and can adapt to various living situations, making them suitable for apartment dwellers.

Doodle dogs like the Shar-Poo have become popular as house pets due to their low-shedding coats and good-natured temperament.

Research published by Nationwide Pet Insurance evidences this growth, indicating the popularity of doodle dogs has increased by 160% over the past decade. Furthermore, the research also mentions that doodle dogs have a significantly lower risk of contracting cancer compared to their purebred counterparts.

While Shar-Poos and other doodle dogs are therefore a comparatively low-risk choice of breed, the guide explains that owners should still be aware of some common health issues in order to better care for their pet. For instance, most Shar-Poos inherit the distinctive skin folds of their Shar-Pei parents, and these folds sometimes trap moisture and debris, which can lead to skin infections if they are not regularly cleaned and dried.

The guide also discusses common personality and behavioral traits in Shar-Poos. For example, they tend to be very quick learners, and their alert and loyal nature makes them great watchdogs that are also good with children.
