The American Kennel Club (AKC) is now the governing body for Shar-Pei show kennels in the United States. They took over this role from the Chinese Shar-Pei Club of America in 1992.

Registration Papers

The terms "registered" and "registration papers" refer to registration of a dog with the AKC. Any full blooded shar-pei can be registered with the AKC if both parents are AKC registered. As a breeder, I register each litter as a whole. The owner can then register an individual puppy by referencing this litter registration. In most cases, I only authorize a limited registration, which means the puppy is not for breeding. The AKC does not allow registration of puppies out of dogs with this type of limited registration.

"Photo by Bruce G. Holcomb. Our family was searching for a pet quality Shar-Pei and found our perfect little guy at Baggins Kennels! Aesthetically he was beautiful, his blue-green eyes gorgeous, his apricot coat soft with lots of wrinkles…but most impressive to us was his temperament. Such a loving, sweet puppy, very smart and bonded immediately to our family. He became housebroken quickly learning how to ring his bell to go outside by 9 weeks. His eagerness and ability to learn commands is amazing and understands 6 hand signals at 3 months old. He’s full of love and is the love of our lives! We couldn’t be happier with Baggins Kennels that they offer such high quality Shar-Peis. They seem to breed for temperament, health and intelligence whether you’re looking for show or pet quality. It’s tempting to add another to our family!"
