The SPCGB is the first UK Kennel Club recognised Shar-Pei Breed Club. The Club was founded in 1983 by a group of devoted Shar-Pei fanciers with the intent of promoting and protecting the interests of the breed. Our aims remain the same to this day and both the breed and the SPCGB have gone from strength to strength.


As custodians of the breed, the foremost aim of the Shar Pei Club of Great Britain is to promote the health and well-being of the breed and with that in mind, breeders must strive to breed healthy puppies to live healthy lives and bring life-long pleasure to their owners. The Club requires that its members who breed, make use of our health scheme and recommended genetic tests  in order to eradicate known health problems


The Shar Pei Club of Great Britain supports research into Shar Pei specific diseases and works with the Kennel Club, the Animal Health Trust and with the Chinese Shar Pei Charitable Trust, which was founded and established to seek funding to address all the genetic health issues of the Shar Pei.

Our dogs are counting on us


Our members come from all backgrounds and walks of life.  What unites us is our love of our breed and our passion to preserve it for future generations to enjoy 


We produce newsletters, a magazine and hold events including on health education, fun days and two shows throughout the year for our members.
