This dog makes a very good watchdog with a loud, persistent bark, which gives the impression to intruders of a much larger dog. It is naturally suspicious of strangers. It may be noisy and too nervous around children and strangers.

It is affectionate with its master, but will not tolerate rough or badly behaved children. It responds to motivational training. It may be obstinate, but generally it is very obedient to its master. This breed is inclined to fight if it is not the only dog in the house. Dislikes being alone and can be snappish if surprised or peeved.

The Lhasa Apso doesn’t demand much exercise. It loves to walk and scramble about, but it will be fitter and happier if given regular opportunities to run free and play.
