Tibetan Terriers require daily exercise and will enjoy a couple of 15-minute walks or one longer walk. The Tibetan Terrier can quickly trained with positive reinforcement techniques such as praise, play, and food rewards.
The Tibetan Terrier came from a region of Tibet known as the “Lost Valley,” so-named because an earthquake destroyed the major road that allowed access to the valley in the 14th century. The Tibetan Terrier has existed for at least 2,000 years. Tibetan Terriers were considered good luck charms.
