The Tibetan Terrier has been bred for centuries in Tibet, in extreme climatic conditions and difficult terrain conditions for survival. As a result, the Tibetan Terrier developed a double protective coat and a unique paw structure. The dog is compact and very lively. Through the efforts of the owner, the Tibetan Terrier can become a strict and devoted companion. Tibetan Terriers are similar to regular terriers but lack their character. The Tibetan Terrier is very smart and without training, and also very loyal. But some of them can be overly cautious and shy. To care for their coat, you need to wash them once a week. These dogs are affectionate parents and can be bred at home.
The Tibetan Terrier has a medium, thick coat. It is square and powerful. A thick coat covers eyes and muzzle. A curled, fluffy tail falls over the back. The feet are huge, flat, round in shape, creating the effect of a ski track when walking. The Tibetan Terrier is presented in its most natural form.
The breed is very intelligent, sensitive, loyal, and affectionate. Dogs can be wary or tight-lipped with strangers.
