Overview
The Lhasa Apso originated in Tibet, and were only bred by holy men and nobles. Thought to bring good luck, this breed was considered to be sacred. For this reason, the Lhasa were used as watchdogs in monasteries for over 2000 years. They are highly intelligent, with keen instinct and acute hearing.
Character
The Lhasa Apso is a hardy and vigorous breed. They are wary and suspicious of strangers. They exude an air of dignity and also comedy. They are considered to be one of the most affectionate breeds with their main function as that of a companion.

Does your Lhasa Apso bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
The Lhasa Apso displays a dual temperament. They are highly expressive of their love and devotion, but have a mind of their own and want everything their way. They are lively and spirited with spontaneous gaiety. The Lhasa is not recommended for families with small children, or in homes where there are rough or ill behaved children. They make excellent watchdogs because of their heightened sense of hearing. They prefer to be the only pet and thrive on attention. They do not like to be left alone for extended periods of time. For this reason they are not well suited for a two career family. They have a tendency to bite if angered or surprised.
Care
The Lhasa Apso requires daily brushing to prevent tangles and mats. Their coat, if grown long, is extremely high maintenance. They may be bathed or dry shampooed on a regular basis or as necessary. They are very prone to ear infections and eye problems, so check-ups and regular cleaning are important. The Lhasa is susceptible to skin problems if not kept free of parasites. Kidney disease is the most serious health problem found in this breed.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Lhasa Apso has a heavy double-coat that is draped over the entire body. Their long coat serves as an insulation barrier, keeping them warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The coat grows to floor length, even covering the eyes, which are protected by long eyelashes. The texture of the coat is neither soft nor silky. The Lhasa coat colors include gold, smoke, parti, and slate. They are average shedders.
Training
The Lhasa Apso typically displays an arrogant and obstinate attitude. They may be difficult to housetrain, so the crate method is recommended. Intense early socialization and obedience are a must. They require firm, assertive and consistent commands, and will respond to praise and reward. The Lhasa will take charge if they are not trained clearly as to who is master. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Lhasa Apso puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Lhasa Apso loves to play indoor games and is quite rambunctious, which largely meets their exercise needs. However, they benefit from outdoor excursions such as a daily walk. They are not suited for outdoor life, so even a small yard is unnecessary. The Lhasa is an excellent apartment and condominium dweller. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I have a Lhasa Apso female puppy, aged 6 months. What is the exact amount of Royal Canin I should give per meal? How much should it be increased as so she grows to an adult?

First off, stop feeding her Royal Canin. It is a bad brand of dog food, it is nothing but corn and filler. You want to feed your Lhasa Apso a high quality, grain-free dog food, which is the best thing for them. To be able to find a dog food in your area check out the website "Dog Food Advisor". The amount of food you will feed your dog when you feed her a high quality dog food is much less than you would need to feed low quality dog food such as Royal Canin. There is a guide on the back of the package of every dog food to help you start to figure out how much to feed your dog.

I have had two Lhasa Apso dogs. My first, Ms.Gracie, was an older dog and suffered from back problems due to a car injury when lost in a Hurricane. She was also blind. With all of her pain, she was a delightful, smart dog to have as my best friend. Sadly, Gracie went to be with Jesus in August of 2014. I loved her so much and missed her terribly. About six months later I have my current Lhasa Apso who is full of energy and about 2. He needs a little sister. He loves to play, play, play. We go for long walks on the leash about every two hours. He is a happy little guy and has become my best friend since January 2015.

What is the difference in a Lhasa Apso being an AKC or ACA?

The AKC (American Kennel Club) is a registration for pure-bred dogs. While the ACA (American Canine Association) is to track the genetic health of canines. What this means is that the Lhasa Apso is a registered dog, but is also genetically healthy with the ACA. There is no difference, as the two associations are not for the same thing.

I have a male Lhasa Apso with pedigree and I would like to breed him. Any advise? We are new in town and we don't know where to look.

It is always so important not to rush into anything. People should only breed if they are starting a professional breeding program, not just to experience the joy of puppies. Think twice before you breed! It's not uncommon for things to go wrong with the dam. Her life is at risk when being bred.

Another thing is that breeders don't make money if it's done right. There is just so much info that I can not possibly discuss. So research and talk to people. Go to shows, find someone who has your breed and talk to them.

What is the price of a Lhasa Apso female puppy?

Lhasa Apso prices vary greatly, as with anything. As a long time show breeder, I will share my thoughts on this question. If a Lhasa Apso (puppy) is priced under $500 I would be weary of the breeder. If a Lhasa Apso is priced over $1,000 (for a pet) I would want to see something very amazing on the pedigree. I think a fair price ranged based on the median right now would be between $650 and $850 give or take a $50 difference. Pet stores, marketers and puppy mills should be avoided at all costs. You are not helping to eliminate them by buying from them. The concept of saving a puppy from bad conditions helps many of these places stay in business. Champion Lines, though it does help, does not guarantee a good dog either. Hope this helps!
