The Tibetan Mastiff is a unique and magnificent breed. They are natural guardians and protect their family and home with marked dedication. At the top of the world in their native land of Tibet they were used as guardians of flock, domicile and monastary. Their true history remains an enigma but the Tibetan Mastiff is thought to be the foundation of many of the Mastiff breeds. They are not always eager to please which can make training a challenge but they are very intelligent and sensitive and respond best to a patient hand and a soft word. Socialization during the first two years of life is important to ensure a confident and outgoing companion. I continue to be struck by their quiet dignity and gentle beauty, they are truly a noble creature.
