Tibetan Mastiff

The Tibetan Mastiff is one of the oldest breeds and documentation exists in China.

The Tibetan Mastiff is 110% devoted to his family and their protection. He’s so committed that he may try to interject during a heated argument between family members. He can be extremely territorial and may want to become the president of the neighborhood watch committee. 

The Tibetan Mastiff is very independent and stubborn so he will need obedience training right away; it is important for him to learn what he can and can’t do at a young age. Because of his guardian instincts it’s crucial to start socializing him early so he’ll learn to play nice with other dogs, animals, and people who aren’t a threat. Lack of training and socialization could lead to a dangerous and unpredictable dog.

The Tibetan Mastiff is generally a healthy breed with a few concerns including elbow and hip dysplasia, persistent pupillary membranes (an eye disorder), and hypothyroidism.  Another concern is Canine-Inherited Demyelinative Neuropathy.

The Tibetan Mastiff is surprisingly easy to groom.

The Tibetan Mastiff needs to be trained and socialized the day you bring him home.
