Lhasa Apsos make very loyal companions and will bond closely with their owner. They are gentle observers that tend not to interact with strangers until they are comfortable with them.
Originally bred as watchdogs for Tibetan Monks, Lhasa Apsos are gentle observers that won’t engage with strangers until they are comfortable with them. Lhasa Apsos make very loyal companions and will bond closely with their owner. This gentle breed prefers mature owners, as children tend to be too playful for them.
The beautiful long coat of the Lhasa Apso takes a lot to maintain. As a puppy you will need to brush it daily and bathe them once a week. At around 10 months of age their coat matures and hardens, they then only need to be bathed and brushed weekly. Once the coat is mature you have the option of clipping your Lhasa Apsos coat into a style. A clipped dog should only need bathing once every three weeks. All dogs whether clipped or not must have the hair between the feet pads trimmed and the ears plucked.
