History

As the name suggests, the Tibetan Terrier was born on the roof of the world, in the heart of Central Asia.

They celebrate their second millennium, since the first writings on them date back to the beginning of our era. Probablemente emparentado con el Puli húngaro, the Tibetan Terrier, al contrario de lo que su nombre podría sugerir, it was originally a sheepdog. Vivió en armonía con los monjes tibetanos y los nómadas, and his life led him to live with the sheep, the horses and yaks that he guarded. También pastoreaba los rebaños en zonas montañosas demasiado difíciles para los perros más grandes. A good sentry, warned as soon as someone approached. In summary, the Tibetan Terrier was both recognized and Sheepdogs as Companion and Toy Dogs.

Out of respect for his soul, la tradición dictaba que no se debía matar al cachorro más maligno de una camada. On the other hand, was handed over to the monks, who granted him a monastic life. Next to him, was subjected to regular work. Esto explicaría en parte el particular carácter del Tibetan Terrier. This dog is devoid of all aggressiveness, tal vez porque vivía la vida recogida de los monasterios y lo compartía todo con su amo, being totally part of the family. También se dice que tenía la reputación de traer buena suerte.

In fact, considered as a sacred animal and guardian of the temples, this dog was the object of a true cult.

Over the years 20, the DRA. Agnes Greig, an english doctor, received a couple of Tibetan Terrier of one of his patients, a tibetan princess. Así es como esta raza llegó a Europa, cuando el médico trajo estos regalos a su país. Was not up 1930 that the Kennel Club of India recognized the Tibetan Terrier as a pure breed, and in 1931 that the Kennel Club británico he did the same.

Before being mistakenly baptized as “Tibetan Terrier” by the english, who classified it in the group of Terriers, the Tibetans called him “Chung-chung-pa“, that means “small person” (unlike in the Tibetan Mastiff (Do-Khy), it was called “big person”), or “Apso Tchenpo“, that means “Big Apso”, in opposition to “Small apso” what is he Lhasa Apso.

Character and skills

The Tibetan Terrier not a real terrier: is a Shepherd Dog belonging to the group of the Companion and Toy Dogs.

This faithful companion is endowed with many attractions. Its sociable, lively, inteligentes y llenos de energía, y no son ni tímidos ni agresivos. Es un perro que se adapta perfectamente a las personas mayores o a las personas solas que quieren compañía.

Si desconfía de los extraños, may be a barker, but he also knows very quickly that there is no danger, if required. Then it quickly calms down.

He has great security in the mountains and is endowed with a sharp intelligence that allows him to react very quickly to danger., but also behave like a gentleman in the city. Always ready to go out for a walk, he also knows how to be close to his master if he can't go out, because you settle for very little exercise.

If we add to this that it is not very noisy, we quickly understand that it is a breed of dog that can live in an apartment without problem.

Last, not content with being too demonstrative with his master and cuddly as desired, the Tibetan Terrier suele apreciar la compañía de otro perro o gato, and gets along very well with children, as long as they respect him and remember that he is not a stuffed animal. On the other hand, it is a dog that tolerates loneliness quite badly, much preferring the presence of his master in all circumstances.

Education

Very smart dog, it is easy and pleasant to work with Tibetan Terrier, although you need to understand the usefulness of what you are being asked to do.

Quite stubborn and not very submissive by nature, the Tibetan Terrier requires from an early age a faultless education, quite firm, but fair. His master must have “an iron hand in a velvet glove” and be infallible, because in general, smart dogs tend to find loopholes, y pueden intentar ocupar el lugar del líder de la manada si consideran que este lugar está vacante.
