Tibetan Terrier Grooming and Breed Care

Tibetan Terrier Temperament

A devoted, loyal, and friendly little dog, the Tibetan Terrier - despite his name - is not related to the terrier breed. He is a spirited and playful dog with a fair amount of energy, but also knows when to be calm and sensible. These dogs are agile and very adept at climbing, which is why it is important to ensure that his play and exercise area is safe and secure. He does enjoy regular walks as part of his exercise regime, and loves to frolic around in the snow. The Tibetan Terrier loves to be around his family, enjoys interaction, and is not the right dog for those with little time for their pets. He is cheerful, sociable, and good natured, and is also very adaptable in terms of his living environment. These dogs have high problem solving skills, are intelligent, and quick to learn. However, training can still be a bit of a challenge, as they can be very stubborn and independent. Although a confident, assertive, yet positive owner is necessary, these dogs are well suited to both experienced and inexperienced dog owners.

There is timidity and shyness in some lines, so it is advisable to provide your Tibetan Terrier with early socialization to promote confidence and stability in his temperament. The Tibetan Terrier will usually bark to raise an alarm, and is cautious around strangers, making him an effective watchdog. He is small and doesn't like to be handled roughly, so he is best around older, more gentle children. When it comes to other pets, the Tibetan Terrier will be generally accepting, if a little bossy. These dogs are keen diggers in some cases, so those with gardens that are their pride and joy may want to think twice before opting for this breed. All in all, the Tibetan Terrier makes for a loving and loyal companion as well as an entertaining and devoted pet.

Tibetan Terrier Appearance

The Tibetan Terrier is small to medium in size, and has a sturdy build. He has an appealing, eager expression, with dark eyes and a little button nose. The coat of the Tibetan Terrier is long and fine, with a softer undercoat. The outer coat can be wavy or straight. The coloring can vary and these dogs are available in a myriad of colors that include brindle, black, white, gold, and silver, amongst others. The weight of the Tibetan Terrier is around 19-30 pounds, and they reach around 14-17 inches in height.

Tibetan Terrier Grooming

Although the grooming requirements for the Tibetan Terrier are quite high as an adolescent, they do require less maintenance as they grow older. You should brush the coat several times a week to keep it in good condition, and you may wish to consider trimming the coat every 4-6 weeks or so. The hair around the bottom should be trimmed regularly for hygiene reasons. The ears should be checked for cleanliness and dryness regularly in order to reduce the chances of infection. The Tibetan Terrier is a low shedder, and may be suitable for those with allergies.

Tibetan Terrier Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The life expectancy of the Tibetan Terrier is around 12-15 years, and there are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed. This includes luxating patella, cataracts, thyroid problems, vWD, HD, and PRA. The parents of the Tibetan Terrier puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates.

Tibetan Terrier History

Once considered a symbol of good luck, the Tibetan Terrier was developed in Tibet, where he lived in monasteries. Despite his name he is not actually related to the terrier breed, and was bred for companionship.
