Caring for Tibetan Mastiff – The Tibetan Mastiff is known as the most expensive breed in the world with prices ranging from around $6000 – $1.5 million. The beautiful giant is an ancient breed bred over 1000s of years as flock and village guards. Highly alert, loyal and strong willed they can be a great pet but do take more care than some of your average dogs.
Personality and strong will are full up to the top in these giants that can be extremely gentle, shy and weary of strangers but also incredibly guarding and unpredictable.
You need to be the strong willed, well routined pack leader and treat your big boy or girl with a strong will yourself. A Tibetan Mastiff left to it’s own devices will grow up disobedient (although even with training this could happen), naughty and sometimes unpredictable. Without proper socialisation your dog may be impossible around others and these guys ideally need strong work from pup.
There is no denying that they are loving and caring and can be cuddly. They don’t like being alone so often need company but can’t always be expected to be ‘the perfect dog’. However a perfect dog is no fun, right!
Not really a mastiff or typically agressive towards people (unless they are doing their guard work) the breed isn’t as scary as it sounds and if you happen to come by one it could be a great dog to own.
