Tibetan Terrier Tibetan Terrier


The Tibetan Terrier was developed in Tibet a few centuries ago and was created specially to be an excellent dog for families. The average height of a Tibetan Terrier is 1 foot, 2 inches to 1 foot, 4 inches weighing about 20 to 25 pounds. They have a lifespan of 12 to 15 years.


The Tibetan Terrier was originally developed in Tibet and even though he should have a terrier-type temperament he doesn’t because he isn’t actually a terrier as you may think. He has his own distinct breed. He is very intelligent, loving and affectionate which makes him an excellent family companion for all types of families. The Tibetan Terrier loves all the energy demanding activities like fly-ball, Frisbee, running, swimming and many others. If he is left alone more than a few hours a day he can become bored and might become very loud and destructive. The Tibetan Terrier is a great watchdog because he is very reserved with strangers and will always let you know when a stranger is approaching your property. He is known to behave well when children are around but very small children should always be well supervised when they encounter any type of dog breed because they might have the tendency to tease and no dog will accept that. Obedience training and early socialization are very important in this case and can make a big difference if you want to have an obedient dog.

Tibetan Terrier Training:

The Tibetan Terrier can be a bit harder to train than other dog breeds but with a bit of perseveration you can accomplish this thing too. This dog breed can learn commands a bit slower than other dog breeds but once they learn something, they will never forget it so you shouldn’t be worried that you are wasting your time with his training.

Tibetan Terrier Shedding:

Shedding should not concern you at all if you plan to buy this type of dog breed. In fact you will never find a hair in your house because the Tibetan Terrier is not a type of dog breed that sheds hair.

Tibetan Terrier Grooming:

The Tibetan Terrier, like many other dog breeds, need daily exercise. Don’t worry, those needs can be met quite easy with simple walks or playing some fun games. His coat needs to be shaped two or three months and proper brushing should be done every now and then.

Tibetan Terrier History:

The Tibetan Terrier was originally developed in Tibet which is also known as “The Roof of the world”. This breed is also known as the “Holy Dog” mainly because in the past it was raised by Buddhist monks also known as lamas. The Tibetan Terrier could have remained an obscure breed if there wasn’t a grateful man from Tibet who gave a Tibetan Terrier to Doctor Agnes R.H Greig as a gift for saving his wife’s life.
