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.
