Having been bred as an indoor monastery sentinel dog by Tibetan Buddhist monks, Lhasa Apsos are
alert with a keen sense of hearing and a rich, sonorous bark that belies their size. The ideal Lhasa
temperament is to be wary of strangers while being loyal to those closest to them. They can be very
aggressive to strangers untrained. They rank 68th in Stanley Coren's The Intelligence of Dogs, being
of fair working/obedience intelligence.[citation needed] Lhasa Apsos are independent as well as
companion dogs who want to please their owners. Unique personality characteristics of Lhasa Apsos
have gained them a reputation as being a very emotive breed that in most cases prove themselves to
be completely fearless. Lhasa Apsos often show happiness by rubbing their head on their owners,
running and rolling around, or sitting on their owner's feet.

A Lhasa Apso responds to exercise and discipline with a calm assertive energy. They are known as
fearless in the Tibetan mountain range. These dogs require socialization with dogs and other people
early as puppies and throughout their lives. They require patience but in return can be quite comical,
entertaining and caring companions. They aim to please their owners and enjoy training. While their
personality belies their size, they need a home that is mindful that there is a small dog in the house to
prevent injury. They enjoy vantage points in the house where they can view all that is going on.
LHASA APSO
An enchanting "big dog" in a small-dog package, the
Lhasa Apso ranks among the many mystical wonders of
Tibet. Adored by his owners for his assertive, gay
temperament and his luxurious floor-length coat, the
Lhasa Apso thrives in many living situations, proving to
be among the most adaptable of canine companions.

Written by Tibetan-breed scholar, Juliette Cunliffe, this
remarkable little book provides an insightful account of
the Lhasa’s ancestry in Tibet and beyond, as well as
discussions of breed characteristics and standard,
puppy selection, feeding, coat care and grooming,
training, preventative health care and showing. The
new owner will welcome advice about puppy-proofing
the home, preparing for the pup’s arrival,
housebreaking and preventing puppy problems.

In addition to an authoritative, comprehensive text, this
book presents over 135 photographs in full color, which
prove to be as informative as they are attractive.
Helpful hints and important information are highlighted
to provide easy access to everything the reader needs
to know about life with a Lhasa from puppyhood.
