Rynkls Shar Pei
Hi, I'm Di G.
Here at Rynkls Shar Pei, we are dedicated to breeding healthy, temperamentally sound and correct Shar Peis so as to preserve the best qualities and heritage of this beautiful breed. The quality and correctness of our dogs is proven by our results in the show ring where we consistently win at top levels. We also love showing the versatility of our Peis in other disciplines, but we mostly enjoy their friendship on the couch!
Our Breeding Practices
Behaviour and socialisation
At Rynkls, we are committed to the emotional welfare of our dogs and take extensive steps toward conditioning them to be able to handle the stresses of life. All of our puppies receive "ENS" training and will have commenced toilet, crate and lead training and will have been exposed to many challenges including children, loud noises, other pets /dogs, and general living conditions.
All Rynkls puppies come with a vet health check, age appropriate vaccinations, parasite treatment (endo and ecto), microchip, and pedigree registration with the Australian National Kennel Council. Where possible and applicable, all of our breeding dogs undergo relevant DNA and/or physical health assessment for conditions that can affect the breed. We are happy to provide further information on this if required.
Our puppies are born and raised in our home so as to be close to us at all times. It is not unusual to find one of us in the box enjoying cuddles and keeping mum company. Being raised in a family home also means that our puppies are exposed to the usual sights, sounds and smells of everyday family life, preparing them for their new family. Our puppies have regular play time outdoors where they are challenged with all sorts of obstacles that…

Rynkls Shar Pei conducts 2 additional tests available for the Shar Pei.
An eye certificate means the breeder has had their breeding dogs examined by a veterinary ophthalmologist, to confirm they are not affected by any eye conditions which may be passed down genetically to their puppies. If relevant for the breed, it also includes running DNA tests to confirm the dog is not a genetic carrier of hereditary eye diseases, such as Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA). It includes breeders who have participated in the Australian Canine Eye Scheme (ACES).
Shar-Pei Auto-Inflammatory Disease (SPAID) is a inherited disorder specific to the Shar Pei, and has no known pathogenic or autoimmune cause. It is characterised by recurring episodes of fever, swelling, inflammation, skin problems and or arthritis. A genetic test can be conducted to gather an estimate of a dog’s increased risk, which can be used to make decisions on which dogs to breed.
About the Breeder
The aim of any breeder should be to breed happy, healthy and socially adjusted dogs that represent their breed well. At Rynkls this is our primary objective and what we strive for in our well thought out breeding program. We breed quality, proven and health tested Shar Peis and Chows, in the pursuit of preserving these wonderful breeds for generations to come.
Why we got involved in breeding
I started exhibiting dogs back in the early 1980's, owning and handling Dobermans and Bull Terriers to a variety of conformation and obedience titles. I'm incredibly passionate about animal welfare and thoughtful breeding. I hold a diploma in Animal Technology, and have lectured on animal ethics, behaviour and breeding at the Australian National University. I also love sharing that knowledge with fellow dog lovers, and constantly staying up to date by attending conferences, courses, and information sessions.
Our special touch
We're active members of the dog community, serving on a number of committees and holding membership to a number of related clubs. We also contribute to the development and welfare of the Shar Pei (and dogs in general) through public education, rescue work and breed-specific training.
