Caring for your Tibetan Terrier is important and his diet is one of the most important ways for you to do this. This dog is highly intelligent so you may have a picky eater if the quality of the food is not good enough, yet they are not overly picky eaters. In addition, he is a very active, high energy dog. This means that he needs a quality diet that is going to provide the nutrition that he needs. You do not have to overspend when feeding the dog, but you should ensure quality ingredients are in his diet. Every breed of dog has its own history and therefore his own requirement for his diet. With the Tibetan Terrier, it will be important to pay close attention to the following things. First, be sure that the foods that you are feeding him are those that would be normally found in his native environment. In other words, provide the dog with foods that his ancestors have eaten in their lifetimes as these foods are easy for him to digest, and have the nutrients that he needs. Second, you should also provide them with a balanced diet, just as you would eat, but specific to dogs. It should include proteins, vitamins and minerals, carbohydrates, and fatty acids. With that said, what should you provide to your dog? The Tibetan Terrier should be given a good quality food. You can make your own, feeding them a healthy diet just as you would the rest of your family. If this is too time consuming for you, then consider high quality pet foods. That does not mean the most expensive types on the market, but rather quality foods. Look at the ingredients. The first item on the list should always be protein, not protein like byproducts or other terms. You can find this type of food in most locations that sell dog food. With the Tibetan Terrier, be sure to give him the amount of food appropriate for his size and his activity level. These dogs are high energy dogs, but that can be downplayed when the dog is not given enough exercise. He quickly can become lazy and use much less energy. In this case, tailor his diet to foods that offer fewer calories or reduce the amount of food taken in. If you do not do this, the dog can become overweight quickly. The best diet to provide to your dog is a fresh one that you make yourself with careful monitoring of the dog's quality and quantity of food. This will provide the dog with a well balanced diet that is specific to the Tibetan Terriers needs. In other cases, learn to read the labels of the dog food you are feeding him.
