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.
