Tibetan Terrier


The breed of Tibetan Terrier puppies can be referred to as an ancient one. They are an old breed, believed to have been the ancestors of other Tibetan dog breeds. This type of dog was bred and raised by monks, and much like the Tibetan Spaniel, was rarely given to anyone outside of the monastery.


Tibetan Terriers can do well with a walk a day. They like to be energetic and do things, but they like being with their owners as well. So they would like to walk with you and play with you, but can also sit and relax with you. They are devoted to their owner.


Be sure not to put too much stress on Tibetan Terriers as they can be prone to hernias. You will also want to take precautions against them getting cataracts. Be sure to take them in for a check-up at the vet to try and catch any problems early on before they can fully develop.


Tibetan Terrier dogs are a medium sized breed with abundant amounts of fur. Their coats are long and shaggy, and they can somewhat resemble the same appearance of a sheep dog. Though they are called terriers, they actually share very few physically apparent similarities to them. They have natural talents in herding and defending.


Tibetan Terriers have double coats. Their undercoat is soft and almost wool like in texture. The coat above it is very long and shaggy, but isn't exactly coarse. It actually has more of a fine and thin feel to it. Their colors are highly variable, but they are most often one solid color.


The Tibetan Terrier is a highly intelligent dog breed and is filled with love for their family. They’re incredibly devoted to their owner and will possess a protective nature over them. They are linked into their owners’ moods, and act accordingly to how their owners feel. They lack an aggressive nature, but do not do well if bullied.


The Tibetan Terrier is one of the easiest breeds to train as they can be very obedient. Though they are independent in their mindset, they do enjoy making their owners happy. They like being cheered on and respond well to positivity from their owners. Be patient and rewarding with your training method.
