If you have a Tibetan Terrier, chances are your dog does what you want him to do, minimally. These dogs are unique dogs in that they are very agile and very full of energy but they are just as likely to sit on the couch with you as they are to get out and plan. The key to keeping your pet healthy is to keep him exercised. Because they can develop health problems that will shorten their life span if they do not get enough exercise, it is important for all dog owners to provide this to their pets. The Tibetan Terrier is not known for his working abilities, as he would much rather not be bothered with these things, though he will do them if he is properly trained. It is often said that these particular dogs are likely to easily be trained because of how smart they are, but on the other hand are more likely to train their human! In other words, if you allow them to be lazy dogs, that is what they will become. They will follow the lead that you set for them. To keep your Tibetan Terrier busy and healthy be sure to include activities that he enjoys in his daily life. First off, these dogs should be taken on at least one long walk per day. They need this amount of exercise and movement to feel good but also to keep their mind actively healthy. Walks are a must at the very least. Here are some additional activities to incorporate in their lives in an effort to keep them physically active.
Take them with you on a hike. These dogs have a good level of stamina and are willing to work hard at it. You will also find that they are very agile dogs.
Take them with you while you run. They love to be with their owners and this is evident in their willingness to do what you do. They will enjoy going for a run with you and are most likely to keep up well.
Include the Tibetan Terrier in sports activities such as ball playing, Frisbees and other outdoor activities. Even if you are playing and he is simply watching, the level of mental stimulation that he gets will be appreciated by the dog both physically and mentally.
The Tibetan Terrier is intelligent and that gives them the edge in learning new things. They are more likely to do what you want them to do. Therefore, incorporate a healthy lifestyle of exercise and companionship with your Tibetan Terrier to keep them happy. Doing this will help them to maintain their weight and to keep muscles healthy.
