Breed Review: Tibetan Mastiff (18 Pics)

#13 The thousand-year history of the breed’s existence and the original purpose of its representatives explain the fact that mastiffs have excellent instincts when it comes to protecting the territory entrusted to them.

For the same reason, dogs are inclined to lead a nocturnal lifestyle, because their distant ancestors gained energy and strength precisely during the daytime sleep in order to begin service at nightfall. So don't be surprised if your Tibetan suddenly becomes restless and noisy when you go to bed. In rare moments, a dog can bark, seeing potential danger in a quiet rustle or creak. Consider this fact if you have overly irritable neighbors who will not miss the chance to express their indignation.

#14 The animal’s attitude towards strangers is mostly reserved – especially in the presence of the owner.

A mastiff will never rush to attack the first in the absence of a threat, but be sure: not a single movement of an intruder will escape his gaze. Representatives of this breed have a well-developed intuition, so a dog can come to terms with the society of not every person. And this is a great reason to think about whether you are really communicating with a friendly and pleasant company?

#15 By the way, about friends …

If you are a fairly sociable person and regularly invite guests for tea, the mastiff will not completely accept this fact and will make any attempts to limit the number of people in your house. Families with children should also pay attention to this fact. Excessively active and loud games of a child with his friends can be perceived by a Tibetan as a threat and a manifestation of aggression. The mastiff, without hesitation, will defend its little master, and given the powerful dimensions of the dog and the impressive bodyweight, this can end in very deplorable circumstances.
