Deep Acres Farm Provides Instructions on Grooming Your Tibetan Terrier. Grooming Instructions are continued in parts two and three.
@Gracefuldecor The trick is to start grooming your TT as a pup before they even need to be groomed so that they get used to it (and may even enjoy it) from a very early age.
I've posted some grooming tips on my blog. Hope this helps.
She's an independent girl! Gotta admire that! Did you sign up as a follower on my blog? I need some more TTs on there!!
I hope you are kidding! We just have very laid back dogs (most of the time). Plus we began brushing our dogs from a very early age so they are very relaxed about it. Would never sedate our dogs. Hypnotist! Now that WOULD come in handy.
dear misdobie. i am afraid you are mistaken (not to mention horribly rude). Angus has never been shown in CA and has only been in the ring a few times after he became a champ at 9 months. Plus he is a HELL of a lot of fun!! See our video of Angus and his sister romping. Get your facts straight before you open your pie hole!!! 🙂
What a good boy he is!
My 1yr old Teddy, is just like him.
Will lie still for me but no-one else (I am Alpha Mum!! Take no-nonsense from him – although mats are another story!;)
Have to lie him on the floor with one leg over his top half though!
Had 3 Samoyeds, thought I knew it all about grooming – Then I got a TT!
Tempted to clip hiim! Dreadful English Winter means every time we take him out we have to hose him off or bath him!
Can you get welly boots and macs for TTs? 😉
Glad to see he doesn't like the mats combed out. I was beginning to think he wasn't alive..(JK) Still…a very agreeable dog <3
Hi there …. fab that you made this video about grooming. Unfortunately, I've never been able to get Dunkie to lie down during the blow dry comb-out process. He prefers to sit so that I can't dry/comb his rear end.

is this dog alive?
He says in the video, once a week bath, with brushing before and after the bath, as well as another brushing out about every 3 days.
I'm considering a Tibetan Terrier as a companion pet. I'm not interested in showing dogs. Is this kind of intense grooming and bathing needed for every dog of the breed? Or just for show dogs. These are lovely animals but a weekly bath with brushing before and after plus another mid–week brushing seems a bit much for me.
How come some have curly hair?
David, I have had a TT for 4 years, and Lhasa Apsos all my life. If you aren't interested in the intense grooming that their long coats require, just have the groomer give them a "puppy cut" or a short scissor cut. My dog is much happier with a short coat and we love him just as much. 🙂
If you want a pet TT, who is not shown, then it is fine to just brush and comb once or twice a week, then bath when they get dirty. I have been involved with the breed for over 35 years, and all my puppies were trained to be groomed from a very early age, so they were used to it. I also explained the regime to their new owners A TT in full coat is very beautiful the process should be relaxing for the dog and owner.
I adopted half Tibetn half shi Tzu! he was ten. and old owners never trained to do anything? did not even neuter? owner died I guess??? WOW!!! Talk about sepperation anxiety. And poddy train was impossible 🙁
