If he has rather a function of shepherd in his country of origin, he is clearly destined for the company in Europe. Introduced in Europe by Dr. Agnes Greig in the 1930s, the breed is currently experiencing a boom.
It is a dog that can be aloof with strangers without showing aggression. He is fully aware of his "little person" (as the Tibetans call him) and requires a firm but subtle education! It does not submit by nature, but is nevertheless easily educated, as evidenced by its growing use in agility (obstacle course to be completed in a minimum of time). The maintenance of his double coat is not to be neglected: it is necessary to count a thorough brushing every week which can last up to an hour of time. it is not recommended to mow it, which has the effect of damaging the structure of the hair which then felt more and more. The Tibetan Terrier does not support loneliness; he is very attached to his family without being exclusive. It does not show particular aggressiveness during meetings with its congeners. As with any breed of dog, it is useful to bring any puppy to specially adapted classes offered by dog clubs. It measures about 40 cm at the withers and weighs 10 to 12 kg for males, and a little less for females. In order to establish maximum complicity with him, it is absolutely necessary to consider him as a full member of the family. The Tibetan terrier ages very well and it is not uncommon to see him reach, or even exceed, 15 or 16 years. He is a very dynamic and sociable dog. Lively; good natural. Loyal companion dog, endowed with many attractions. Sociable, lively, intelligent and full of energy; neither fierce nor fighter. Do not lavish affection on strangers.
