The Tibetan Terrier is a medium-sized, squarely proportioned dog that looks more like a sheepdog than a terrier. The double coat protects the entire dog, even falling in front of the dark, large, widely spaced eyes. The Tibetan Terrier is an appealing, shaggy little dog. It is devoted to its family and is excellent with older, considerate children. It is persistent and resourceful. Some of the breed's talents include: watchdogging, agility and competitive obedience.


Any color or combination of colors.


Soft, woolly undercoat; long, fine outer coat that can be straight or wavy. This breed requires an extensive amount of grooming and should be brushed every 2-3 days to remove loose hair and prevent tangles. Never brush a dry coat; mist it with conditioner and water to ease brushing. This dog should be given regular baths, once or twice a week. If the dog is not going to be shown, it can be clipped short, especially in the summer. The Tibetan Terrier sheds little to no hair; it is good for allergy sufferers when its coat is kept very well groomed.
