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.
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.
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.
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Lhasa Apso puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

I have a Lhasa Apso female puppy of 6 months.. please help me with the exact amount of royal canin to be given in gm per meal.. and how much it would 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 dog 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 then 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.

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

1 Comment

Anonymous

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.

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 young dog?

1 Comment

Anonymous

Lhasa prices vary greatly as with anything. As a long time breeder and show person I will share my thoughts on this question. If a Lhasa (puppy) is priced under $500 I would be weary of the breeder. If a Lhasa 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!

at which age lhasa apso can get pregnant

1 Comment

Anonymous

A Lhasa apso "can" get pregnant on her first heat. This, however, is a terrible time to breed her as she is not done growing. The first heat is generally between 6 & 8 months of age though variables in both directions can exist. An appropriate breeding should be at a minimum of 18 months or after the third heat. Absolutely do not breed on the first heat!

A Lhasa apso with blue eyes is almost definitely not a purebred Lhasa apso unless it suffers from a health condition or is a dilute (extreme).

In my 20 plus years experience grooming professionally and raising high end lhasa apso dogs, I have seen numerous lhasas with one blue eye or a half blue half brown eye. It is not entirely uncommon, however, AKC lists this as a serious fault, and not desirable in any breeding program. Of course, the novelty of a blue eyed puppy to an every day puppy purchaser is often sought after, so the responsible breeder would sell these guys pet only and shouldn't be bred, but make just as excellent pets as our every day brown eyed sweethearts!

AT WHAT AGE CAN YOU WEEN A PUPPY ?

1 Comment

Anonymous

Weaning a puppy has many variables that can alter the age decided upon. Ideally a pup that can be nursed at least part time till eight weeks is ultimate. Some mothers will nurse even up to 12 weeks (I have had one that was still nursing a pup I kept at 14 weeks). Most mothers will instinctively start slowing their willingness to nurse (frequency) around 4-5 weeks which encourages the pups to seek out alternative food sources. If a mother tries to start weaning before 4 weeks you will play a more significant role in weaning because in most cases puppies are not ready to be weaned at that age. Puppies are best if nursed completely for a minimum of 4 weeks with a slow introduction of slightly softened puppy dry food from 4-6 weeks. At six weeks nursing should have slowed to part time with pups eating dry food more than nursing (barely moistened if possible).

hi- my boy is 15/15 and his back legs are like jello, get a 2 opionion from a vet because it could be early arthritis. get a cbc blood test and ask vet if u should start dog on a glousamine/chrontrin pill. this way it will give the dog extra strength, go easy on walks. good luck.

Without a more broad spectrum description it would be impossible to even suggest a diagnosis...what led up to this condition, is he still eating, drinking, urinating, and having normal bowel movements. Lhasa can suffer from back problems particularly when they are longer in body type. Poisoning can create paralytic symptoms as can a severe reaction to a prescription medication. Even kidney failure can cause some paralysis type symptoms though not usually entire body paralysis.

Do Lhasa Apso's have problems with hips

1 Comment

Anonymous

Any breed "can" have problems with their hips when certain other conditions exist. Obesity would be one of those conditions that could lead to hip problems, poor diet another. Lhasas do have some back, hip and knee issues that surface from time to time. Good breeding will help to eliminate these issues from the breed entirely but many do not conform to good breeding practices. Use of some vitamin and mineral supplements may help but diet is another issue of extreme importance. Many of these type of skeletal issues are more probably with poor feeding. Owners often believe they are feeding good food, when, in fact, with better nutritional information they discover their food is lacking important ingredients. Each breed may have certain needs that are greater than another. Limit all jumping type activities to extend the dogs life and chances of living with the ailment as pain free as possible. One bad jump can cause a flare up in a dog that has already had a prior injury.

discoloration on coat (looks like rust) I have a 7yr old Lhasa whom I rescued from a very bad living situation, It has been a few years since I rescued her I keep her groomed and bathed, she started getting rust around her eyes and i used tear stai remover and it went away but has returned only this time it is all over her coat, eyes, mouth, feet bottom, between back legs. it seems to be on areas that she licks. I have been told several reasons for this and several different ways to cure it, nothing seems to work. I am concerned that she may have health problems? If someone could give me an answer that would be great! Thank you

The systemic effect us of concrrn...I have a cream color lhasa. I find it almost imperative to clean the corners of the eyes once or twice a day, before it gets onto the hair. Also adding Angel Eyes to food (or in a small spoon of peanut butter if you have to), helps stop the discoloration of tears. Very effective and takes about a month to start work.

You will get all kinds of Lhasa. I have a 2 year old Lhasa and a 18 month old Shihtzu. Most sites indicate that Lhasa's like being the old dog in the house and are not great with kids. I think alot depends on how much you socialize the dog with other dogs and kids. The issue is my Lhasa is a male and I am not sure how he would re-act if a toddler grabbed his coat, ears or pulled his tail. He might just protest about that. My Shihtzu would allow the pulling of the tail, but I can't say for sure with the Lhasa.

we feed both our Lhasa Apso's Solid Gold - just a wee bit (that's really the name). It is salmon and bison flavored and it comes in a pink sparkly bag. We have fed both our dogs this on the direction of our vet since they were both puppies. We often add some chicken, low sodium beef stock, cooked sweet potatoes, and/or cooked carrots to it for variety if they seem to get board with it.

He advised that this may continue in her other seasons if shes not spayed. I wanted to breed her just once in September 13 when she will be 18 months. After this i was going to get her spayed. Does anyone know if this would be safe to spayed her after a litter next year or would you recommend i spayed her now? Any feedback would be greatly appriciated.

I would recommend that you get her spayed now because it really does not matter when she is spay. The only difference is that if she is spayed now she will have a lower risk of getting some types of cancer. Although Lhasa Apsos don't have a high risk of cancer so the choice really yours.

If you would like to breed her she should go through at least two cycles, that ensures she is mature enough. She should be about 2/12 years old an should be mature enough. Check with you vet also to ensure your dog is ready to breed .. Good luck healthy breeding to you .. Patty

Lhasa Apso's started in Tibet. The king of Tibet had hundreds of Lhasa's guarding the castle. On the outside you see they would bite the ankles of the horsemen that came to enter the castle to kill the king and they would knock the horseman off the horse, and the shepherds that where inside the castle would go after the men. And kill them . You see when a Lhasa looks in the mirror they don't see little dog they see a lion hence the big personality
