The Tibetan Terrier comes to us from Tibet, which may seem obvious, but they are definitely NOT terriers, so we do have the state the obvious in some occasions. Early adopters of the breed in the West used the term Terriers in reference to their size, not as a group classification.
Our Tibetan Terrier Collection offers several products featuring the Tibetan Terrier on the labels, plus a few others that we feel would help you care for your TT.
Nose Butter for rough dry noses, Paw Butter to keep those snowshoe feet in tip top shape, Boo Boo Butter for skin care and Relax Dog Aromatherapy for stress or anxiety issues.
Body & Bounce shampoo is ideal for the TT coat. Add Flawless Finish Conditioner and our best-selling Shine-ON+Sheen for a finishing touch and your grooming routine is down pat.
A Bit of Tibetan Terrier History - Originally the Tibetan Terrier was known as the Dokhi Apso. Like their cousins the Tibetan Spaniel, the Lhasa Apso, and Pekingese, they were raised in the monasteries of Tibet and surrounding areas. They were an all around dog, as they helped with herding, guarding, and of course, as loving companions.
As was their custom, the monks never sold their dog, but shared them as gifts to respected visitors or as a show of gratitude. Slowly some of these dogs made their way West. IN the 1920s they made their way to England and in 1956 the first TT came to the US.
Today's Tibetan Terrier - Today's TT (as their legion of fans call them) are found in virtually any color, with 11 recognized by the parent clubs as standard. They rank 96 out of 193 breeds the AKC registers, which makes them a somewhat rare breed.
TTs have a double coat, with a wooly undercoat, that resists dampness and keeps them warm naturally. Their coat texture can range from silky soft to more coarse, with various degrees of matting resulting. While a Tibetan Terrier is glorious in full coat, many pet owners opt for an easier puppy cut. You do whatever haircut is right for you and your TT to be comfortable and not stressed.
This loving and stable dog is a great companion and loyal family pet for those who take the time to learn more about this Tibetan treasure.
