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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

Anonymous asked:
What is the Chinese type of Tibetan mastiff which I have seen breeders refer to?

1 Comment


The Chinese type of Tibetan Mastiff is most likely the classic Tibetan Mastiff. One of incredible size, power, dominance over its territory, and the big, rough mane. Some breeders are making the Tibetan Mastiff a little smaller and less possessive of its territory and family to try to break into the 'pet market'.

Anonymous asked:
Do Tibetan Mastiffs have a lions mane? Thanks

1 Comment


To answer your question, yes and no. Most lineages of the Tibetan Mastiff will have the classic mane that was made to look like a lions mane. However, some lineages do not have the mane. Being proactive in what you are looking for and making sure the dam and sire, the grandparents and if at all possible, siblings from previous litters look like what you are looking for is the best way to make sure that your puppy has the classic mane.

Anonymous asked:
Would it be best to get 2 Tibetan Mastiff puppies since they get bored easily?

1 Comment


It is never a good idea to get a sibling pair of puppies. It is also not a good idea to get more than one puppy at a time. Behaviorally, the two dogs will bond with each other tighter than with yourself or other people. This means that their training will be much more difficult because they don't need to get praise or anything from you since they get all their positive reinforcement from their sibling or the other puppy. Also, because the dogs will bond so fiercely to each other, it is unlikely they will be well behaved around other dogs. A lot of bonded pairs will become aggressive if another dog plays with one or the other of the pair. It is best to get one puppy and make sure that he/she is well socialized, and trained. Make sure you exercise your dog daily and let him/her have time at either a doggy day care or other social dog time so that he/she does not get bored.

Anonymous asked:
What is the real average life span of a Tibetan Mastiff? Do they drool a lot of just when eating?



The average life span of the Tibetan Mastiff is 12 - 13 years. They are droolers, though some are more than others.


None of mine drool, even when eating. A little drool is expected right after drinking, but its very minimal.

What is the average Tibetan Mastiff puppies per litter?

The average litter size for a Tibetan Mastiff is between 5 - 8 puppies. However it can be more and it can be less, all depending on the pedigree of the dam and sire.
