A smart, happy, lively dog, the Tibetan Spaniel makes for an excellent addition to any family. They are quick to create a bond with their family, and easily make the distinction between family and stranger, barking to alert their people about anyone they perceive as a trespasser. They may be slightly difficult to train and need to be told that they are not the head of the household. If your Tibetan Spaniel is properly trained and socialized, they will be a pleasant and playful companion. .
