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.
