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.
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.
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.
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.

Annual cost of owning a Tibetan Mastiff puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Tibetan Mastiffs true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

What is the average price of a full grown Tibetan Mastiff?

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.

Anonymous asked:
Are Tibetan Mastiffs good with toddlers/kids?



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 its family.


My TM is excellent with my children as young as 5. Like any dog constant supervision around the children is a must and the training is ongoing, it is also important to teach the children how to respect the dog as well.
