Lhasa Apso

Lhasa Apso

Lhasa Apso dog breed was bred for hundred of years as companions and watchdogs for Buddist monasteries and Tibetan nobility.

In its native Tibet, the Lhasa Apso is known as Apso Seng Kyi, or Bearded Lion Dog.

The Lhasa Apso stands 10 to 11 inches tall and weighs between 14 and 15 pounds. The eyes are dark, the ears are hanging, and the body is slightly longer than it is tall. The tail is carried over the back. The coat is the breed’s glory – thick, heavy, and straight.

The coat is long and is parted in the middle of the skull, with the part continuing down the dog’s back to the tail. In show dogs, the coat may drag on the floor. All colors are acceptable. The coat requires considerable care and should be brushed and combed daily, especially if kept long. Many pet owners keep the coat trimmed to a shorter, more manageable length, but even when short, the coat must be combed daily to keep it clean and to prevent mats from forming. Particular care is needed to keep the eyes, ears, and mouth clean, as well as the feet and genitals.

Although Lhasa Apso puppies are quite playful, adults are calm. A daily walk and a play session will satisfy most dogs. Training should begin early. Although bred to be companion dogs, Lhasa Apsos can have an independent and slightly stubborn nature. Training needs to be structured but fun and playful. Housetraining can take time; owners must be consistent and patient. Wary of strangers, these dogs require early socialization. Lhasa Apsos are first and foremost companion dogs and are not happy when left alone too much. They are excellent with single adults who live by themselves. Lhasas can be good with children who treat them with respect, but they will not tolerate rough play or handling. They are watchdogs but are not overly yappy. Health concerns include eye problems, kidney disease, and allergies.
