Overview
The Tibetan Mastiff is independent, protective, and very loyal making him a great guard dog. This breed can become bored fairly easily so he should have lots of attention and stimulation so he does not become destructive.
Character
The Tibetan Mastiff is strong willed and very intelligent, and is good for many different functions, however this breed does require proper training to do so. With the right training, he can do well in obedience, agility, and will do well as a guardian.
Temperament
The Tibetan Mastiff is not for everyone, but is very affectionate, loving, and loyal. An intelligent breed, he can also be very stubborn and has a short attention span so proper handling is a must.
Care
The Tibetan Mastiff has very little dog odor, but does blow his undercoat once a year making grooming a chore. Regular brushing should be performed during this stage. Weekly brushing otherwise should be sufficient.
Coat
The Tibetan Mastiff is double coated, with long and thick guard hair that should be coarse to the touch. The undercoat should be soft and heavy making him resistant to cold weather, however the undercoat will be sparser in warmer climates.
Training
A dominant and strong handler is a must for this strong willed breed. He can become very destructive without the proper training or stimulation. Consistency and variety is key to keep his attention. With this, the Tibetan Mastiff will thrive.
Activity
Tibetan Mastiffs should always have regular exercise, but it should be regulated as too much can cause problems with the joints due to his size. Regular walks should be sufficient, but he should have at least a medium sized yard.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Tibetan Mastiff 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.

What is the average price of a full grown tibetan mastiff?

1 Comment

Anonymous

That would depend on if you are looking for one that is trained in protection then you are looking at a very hefty price-tag. This breed is known as the Million Dollar Dog because some adults have sold for over a million dollars. However, if you are looking for a rescue, the price would depend on the actual rescue. But I would gauge a rescue to be less then a breeder pup in price.

Are Tibetan Mastiffs good with toddlers/kids?

1 Comment

The Tibetan Mastiff should be fine with children if the dog grows up with them. But please remember that this breed is extremely protective and will act aggressively towards strangers. So separation is a MUST when it comes to children having friends over. This dog would not do well with children screaming, giggling and running about -- as the dog could easily take that as a threat to it's family.

I was told by a old co-worker that a Tibetan Mastiff is a great breed as a medical K-9 for epilepsy = is this true?

1 Comment

There are pros and cons to any dog breed for a service dog of any kind. The pros in this case for a Tibetan Mastiff as an epilepsy service dog is that when the person is having the epileptic episode, the dog is large enough to lay the person down and lay on top of them and not be thrown off depending on how bad the spasms are. However, the cons with this breed is that they are extremely territorial and protective of their owners, so if the person has an epileptic episode and medical attention is needed and the person is unconscious, the dog could become aggressive and not allow anyone near their owner. You may want to look into other large breed dogs that are more stranger friendly, such as the Newfoundland or the Leonberger as those two breeds would be great and don't pose strangers as a threat unless the person acts threatening.

Tibetan Mastiff Do Tibetan Mastiff's stay near their home or do they wander some distances? I've had many English Mastiffs and they never leave the yard. I realize that Tibetan Mastiff's aren't true mastiffs but the extended longevity is appealing.

The Tibetan Mastiff was used a guard dog, so they are known to stick close to home. But any dog will wonder if there is something more interesting to coax it away. It is best to have your yard fenced, so your dogs and other people's safety. The Tibetan Mastiff is a huge dog and is extremely protective of it's home and property, more so then the English Mastiff.

How are Tibetan Mastiff dogs with other small dogs?

1 Comment

Anonymous

The Tibetan Mastiff is a giant breed of dog. They were and are bred as extremely loyal and protective companion animals. With socialization and training, the Tibetan Mastiff should be able to distinguish friend from foe both with human and other animals, such as a small breed of dog. But every interaction with two or more dogs when there is a size difference needs to be supervised at all times, no matter how well the dogs get along. A Tibetan Mastiff could easily injure a small breed dog by accident wanting to play or rough-house.

How much does a female Tibetian Mastiff eat a day, in cups?

1 Comment

A grain-free, high quality dog food is the best thing to feed your dog. Some brands to look at are Acana, Origjn, Taste of the Wild, Life Mates, Now and Go! The average number of cups the Tibetan Mastiff would eat a day would be between 3 1/2 - 5 cups a day.

Most Definately, a Tibetan Mastiff is a very viscous dog when it comes to attacks on the family.

yes, Tibetan Mastiffs were actually first used for that very purpose in the past, and they still do protect very well.

The Tibetan Mastiff is the most protective dog when raised right and with care. This breed has been known in the past to take on the big cats and bears, some reports show that a good deal of them survived these ordeals with minimal injuries. Youtube actually has some videos on how PROTECTIVE this breed REALLY is.

No, the hot climate is definitely not the best climate for the Tibetan Mastiff dog because the dog's coat is made to be very thick and to keep it warm, it is more suited to cooler places.

The climate in Tibet flexes as much as 45Fwinter - 75F summer day temperatures and with a 27F drop at night. Research the natural environment first and don't assume that the coat means that it can't be in warmer temperatures. A dogs coat general changes with the seasons and temperatures.

The post above mine is wrong with most of its statements. The temperature in tibet can get to around 10 F in the winter(much colder as you increase altitude, by the way) to around 70F in the summer, give or take about 10 degrees. Seeing how the temperature in Arizona can frequently get to 100F or above, I would not recommend having a Tibetan Mastiff in Arizona. And yes, the thicker coat DOES mean that it is better suited to cooler climates.Think about a chihuahua and a pomeranian on a 100F day; obviously, the pomeranian will start to pant before the chihuahua. Except, this is on a much larger scale and a tibetan mastiff has thicker and denser fur than a pomeranian. A dog's coat does change depending on the seasons, but not that drastically. So "Anonymous" comment number 2, "Research the natural environment first"!

Are Tibetan Mastiff's water dogs/ do they like to swim?

2 Comments

Anonymous

In my experience the short answer is no Tibetan Mastiff's don't really like water. Our tibetan hated the water. She would pace the shore at the lake when we were camping if her 'kids' were out in the water. She appeared to be afraid of the waves. But I think generally as they are an ancient mountain breed they would not have been exposed to large bodies of water (lakes, oceans).... I used to laugh and think if it was frozen it probably would have been fine. Rest in peace: Jemma...' Our dream Jemma of Orian'

Never seen a Tibetan Mastiff weighing in at 150 lbs. I have seen a lot of people claim they do and they are actually smaller than many 140 pounders I have seen. Based on my experience a lot of people exaggerate the weight of their dogs. Not sure why but a male at 140 lbs would be a large Tibetan Mastiff unless they were overweight.
