Here are some points to consider when choosing your Tibbie: Tibetan Spaniels are a beautiful breed of dog with a temperament to match, they love being a part of the family and as time goes by you will soon come to realise that you no longer own them - they own you! Tibetan Spaniels are not a kennel dog and therefore should not be subjected to that type of situation - the environmental conditions they live in is most important to their temperament in the long term.

Potential buyers should avoid any breeder who mass produces large numbers of puppies from large numbers of dogs, WHERE TOO MANY DOGS ARE BEING KEPT AND CANNOT RECEIVE THE INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION AS REQUIRED. In Australia we recommend to make your selection from a reputable breeder who is registered with the governing Canine Association of each State and are covered by the Australian National Kennel Council (ANKC) Code of Ethics. If a breeder tests for various diseases, feel free to ask to see proof for the stock you are buying from. If you have any queries please contact the TSAV.

For a list of Tibetan Spaniel breeders, please go to www.dogzonline.com.au. You can narrow your search to those people who actually show their dogs, and are not just breeding, and narrow the search to your state if required. Again, if you have any queries, feel free to contact TSAV.
