Like all double coated breeds, Tibetan Spaniels shed a little bit throughout the year. In warmer climates, Tibbies may “blow their coats” the first of summer. Females may shed more after finishing their season, which in Tibetan Spaniels, is generally only once a year.
Tibetan Spaniels are quite easy to housebreak as are most dogs with love, praise and patience. See Crate Training for some great suggestions on house training.
Tibbies are highly intelligent and very eager to please their owners. They will do just about anything for attention. Many Tibbies have done quite well in the obedience ring. However, since a Tibetan Spaniel is a little stubborn by nature, he may not be as quick to learn as a Poodle or other easily trained breed.
Yes, they are good with children. But, as with all animals, adult supervision is always recommended. Tibbies need a home that is free from rough handling and teasing. Some individual Tibbies are better/more patient with children. Typically, the Tibetan Spaniel puppy that has been socialized and exposed to children before you bring him/her home, will enjoy your child’s company.
