About this Breed

The Tibetan Mastiff is a massive dog with ancient origins. Little is known about the breed prior to the 19th century, but there is evidence of a mastiff-like breed living in Tibet nearly 5,000 years ago. These guys made their western debut as gifts to English royalty in 1847. They are known for their loud, deep bark, a feature that made them magnificent guard dogs. Tibetan Mastiffs are loyal dogs, but they do have a natural independence about them. These guys have a huge, thick double coat that sheds once a year. Weekly brushings are still required to maintain its health. Tibetan Mastiffs enjoy daily exercise, but they are not nearly as high energy as other breeds their size. These are intelligent dogs, but their independence requires patient training. Tibetan Mastiffs make wonderful family pets and they thrive when with their people.
