With over twenty different breeds of dogs within the AKC's Non-Sporting Group ranging from the Chow Chow to the Coton De Tulear to the Dalmatian and including (of course) the Chinese Shar-Pei; this AKC grouping has a wide variety of dogs In regard to temperament, weight, height and even background. But one thing the various dogs in this group do share is their popularity amongst humans as housedogs and even, at times, watchdogs. So, what's that mean for their diet, or more specifically for the diet of the Chinese Shar-Pei? Well, in order to keep a Chinese Shar-Pei within a heathy weight range of 45-60 pounds their owner will need to be diligent about what type and how much dog food they're giving the independent Chinese Shar-Pei. This task will be considerably easier if the Chinese Shar-Pei is given a high-protein dog food packed with nutrients to rebuild their muscles but void of fillers common in other types of dog foods that could become an obesity issue.

The Chinese Shar-Pei is considered a moderately active dog and thus your Chinese Shar-Pei could benefit from a high-protein dog food due to that simple fact alone. A dog food rich in high-protein helps to build muscle and support the energy levels of a moderately active Chinese Shar-Pei. Furthermore, the calories in high-protein dog food are more efficiently used by a moderately active dog like the Chinese Shar-Pei. In fact, dogs that don't receive enough protein can actually experience muscle loss and see a noticeable drop in energy levels. Lastly, a high-protein dog food that's optimal for the Chinese Shar-Pei is low in carbohydrates which are a non-essential component of a healthy diet for most dogs, but especially true for a moderately active Chinese Shar-Pei.
