ADOPTING A TT

Is a TT the Right Dog for You?

Owning a Tibetan Terrier (or as some might say, being owned by a Tibetan Terrier) can be a wonderful experience. However, when you bring a TT puppy into your life, you are also making a big commitment. TTs can live 15 or more years, so you are wise to consider your choice carefully.

STILL THINK THE TIBETAN TERRIER IS RIGHT FOR YOU?

This breed is not for everyone, but for many devoted TT owners, there is no breed that compares. After having Tibetan Terriers, you will not want to live without a shaggy, amusing TT companion.

CAN YOU GIVE A TIBETAN TERRIER THE EXERCISE IT NEEDS?

Tibetan Terriers are adaptable dogs, suitable for apartment living. However, they do require exercise. Do you have a securely fenced yard or can you commit to a regular leash walking routine (regardless of weather)?

Most TTs cannot be trusted off leash and will run off if allowed to “run free.” If you do not have a fenced-in area, and are hoping to just open the back door and let your dog out to do its business, please seriously reconsider your choice of breeds.
