Overview
Tibetan Spaniels originated in the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet over 2000 years ago. They were owned and bred by Buddhist monks and were never sold. The Tibetan Spaniels only left the monasteries as treasured gifts to esteemed and honored friends or royal houses. Considered to be one of the oldest breeds, they were used as a watchdog as well as for keeping their owner warm in extreme cold.
Character
Commonly referred to as the "Tibbie", this breed is relatively rare and primitive. The Tibetan Spaniel is active, small, and alert. They are appropriately and affectionately called "little lion" due to being tender and also tough. This Oriental breed exudes an exotic charm and makes a lovely companion.

Does your Tibetan Spaniel 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 Tibetan Spaniel is a highly intelligent breed and is deeply devoted to their family and friends. They thrive on human companionship, are extremely sensitive, and will respond to their owner's moods, emotions, and feelings. They do best with older, considerate, well-behaved children. This breed is generally aloof with strangers but is never aggressive. They get along very well with other pets. The Tibetan Spaniel will vigorously alert their family to any unusual event, sound, or to visitors. They are excellent watchdogs that are neither nervous nor hyper. This breed is not only a lap dog but also likes to sleep in bed with their owners. The Tibetan Spaniel likes to be up high so they are able to survey their surroundings.
Care
Tibetan Spaniels require brushing once a week. It is important to pay careful attention to the hair behind the ears as it knots quite easily. When bathing the Tibetan Spaniel a mild shampoo is recommended. They must be rinsed thoroughly of all residues to prevent dry skin that may lead to itching and scratching. They are prone to a myriad of health issues such as PRA, weeping eye, cherry eye, allergies, low tolerance to anesthesia, and hip and elbow dysplasia.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Tibetan Spaniel is a double coat breed. The outer coat is of medium length and is silky, soft, and flat. The under coat is dense and soft in texture and provides warmth as well as protection from the sun. They have feathering on the tail, ears, and backs of legs. There is a longer mane of hair at the neck. The coat comes in a wide variety of colors such as cream, fawn, white, red, gold, black, and black and tan. This breed is an average shedder that sheds their undercoat twice a year.
Training
The Tibetan Spaniel is independent and intelligent, but may also be stubborn. They have a tendency to think that they know more than their owner. They typically do not do well in obedience or other organized training activities. They are easily bored with repetition. This breed is very eager to please and will do anything for attention. There may be some difficulty in housebreaking them and the crate method is recommended. Early socialization is a must for the Tibetan Spaniel. Because of their sensitivity training should only be done with love, patience, praise, and consistency. 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 Tibetan Spaniel puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
Tibetan Spaniels need daily walks and runs. They love to play outdoors and are at their best when properly exercised. It is important that they are always securely leashed and fenced. They will do okay in an apartment provided they are sufficiently exercised. If they are left alone for extended periods of time they will become bored and possibly destructive. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

My Tibetan Spaniel often bites his tail often to the point of leaving blood how can I stop it? He is very aggressive with himself but never bites people or other dogs.

Your vet is the only one that can help you in this situation.

The first thing you should do is go to a vet. You may also need to find a professional behaviorist.

I know and have done research on Tibetan Spaniels, but my tibbie has had an eye-watering problem since I got her at 5 months. She is now 14 months and her eyes still water a lot, they water enough to soak the fur at the bottom of her muzzle/ cheeks - why?

I have been told that the fur around the eyes can cause problems and my vet trims the fur close to my Tibetan Spaniels eyes. Not easy as he hates being groomed.

Whenever I put my Tibetan Spaniel into my room for even as short as a few minutes, I come back and there is liquid under the door and his chest and front paws are wet. I dont think its pee as it isn't on the door itself.... do tibby's drool when they get anxious? I'm wondering if it's his spit or snot? (for lack of a better word).

On occasion, when our Tibetan Spaniel drinks too much water, she tends to cough it up. Especially when she's upset.

My dog has that same problem when she goes for a ride in the car (she's covered in her drool in minutes), it's most likely because he's nervous. If your dog gets nervous or insecure without you around, he may drool a lot because his breed loves attention and get nervous/sad when their owner is doing something they can't get involved in. it probably means he loves you! :) but if it becomes too much of a habit, I would contact your vet :)

Why do Tibetan Spaniels sleep so much?

The Tibetan Spaniel shouldn't sleep anymore than an average dog. If your dog is sleeping more, then a vet visit is in order.

Whenever I open my house door my Tibetan Spaniel, Bella, runs out onto the road.. :( How do I get her to stop it?

I hate to say it, but basic obedience. Tibbies have a tendency to run and play catch me if you can. You are not going to be able to remedy that urge to play, but she can learn to sit and stay so you can get out the door. Good luck.

Well, I've sort of grown up with a dog of mine who used to run out in the streets a lot if we opened the front door. There are two things that might help you, keep her either away from the door or teach her to not exit the door unless you're taking her for a walk. The one thing you should do which is most important is to take her on walks, but make sure she stays by your side and not try to pull away from you on the leash towards the streets. If this doesn't help, keep taking her on walks and also keep her away from the door by firmly saying "no" or any other way you have of disciplining her and picking her up and moving her farther away from the door. It took a few years for my dog to learn he can't go outside without my permission and that if he does get out he's learned to come home when he's strayed too far.
