Ease of Training
He originated several hundred years ago in the Himalayan Mountains
He was used as a watchdog in Tibetan Monasteries and in the homes of nobility
Personality and Behavior
He's a very independent dog who'd rather please himself than please you
He's suspicious of strangers
He enjoys climbing to the top of furniture for a good view of what's happening around him and burrowing into pillows and blankets
He'll rub his face into you and sit on your feet to show his affection
He's not easy to train. You will need patience as he is slower than most to learn obedience commands.
He sheds virtually no hair. You'll be hard-pressed to find a hair in your home! (Good for clean-freaks.)
Grooming / Maintenance
Option 1: Clip his coat short every few months and then it only needs to be brushed occasionally.
Option 2: Trim his long coat every 6 weeks and then brush it daily to keep it mat and tangle free.
