A companion dog developed over 2,000 years ago, the Tibetan Terrier was bred to withstand Tibet’s extreme climate and difficult terrain. Highly intelligent, sensitive and mischievous, the Tibetan Terrier is a loyal, affectionate family dog. Positive, patient training and regular exercise are recommended, and the breed’s profuse, thick coat requires weekly grooming.
