Grooming your Tibetan Mastiff dog

Taking care of your Tibetan Mastiff is important to ensure they stay healthy and happy. Tibetan Mastiffs require moderate maintenance when it comes to grooming. This is usually done through regular bathing and brushing. 

Brushing once or twice a week should be sufficient to maintain the health of their coat and keep it looking shiny. They should also have regular baths; once every two weeks is usually enough to keep them clean and healthy. When bathing, make sure to use a shampoo specifically designed for dogs as regular human shampoos can irritate their skin.

Unsurprisingly, they are not considered hypoallergenic dog breeds. So, if you’re looking for dog breeds that are good for allergy sufferers, you should look elsewhere.
