Thaddeus Munch The Tibetan Dog | Info And Free Mastiff Articles

Thaddeus Munch The Tibetan Dog

On a weekly basis, TM Info receives emails from Tibetan Mastiff owners who are unable to deal with some of the more difficult aspects of ownership and, in some circumstances, are ready to give up. Because of my voluntary work, I’ve come to see TM ownership as a collaborative effort involving three parties.

Tibetan Dog Breeders

It’s not simply about selling puppies! Breeders should educate themselves and provide the time and resources necessary to provide comprehensive and long-term care to their puppy owners. Breeders that are experienced and competent should be able to advise owners through the Tibetan Mastiff’s expected life stages.

Tibetan Mastiff Owners

When it comes to fundamental dog care and management, owners should take the initiative to educate themselves. While there’ll never be sufficient hours in a day, getting in touch with breeders on regular basis benefits both the breed and your dog.

Breeders can keep track of a variety of potential behavioral and health issues by staying in touch. TM ownership should be full of happy and fulfilling moments, despite the challenges.

However, some owners are willing to give up their dog if minor problems are allowed to develop into full-fledged destructive, nervous, or troublesome guardian behavior. When it comes to preventing imminent issues, it only makes sense that a little prevention goes a long way.

Volunteer Mentors

Unfortunately, we cannot ensure that breeders will care for their puppies, therefore volunteer mentors must contribute their time, skills, and experience. Owners need a good source that teaches, advises, and encourages them, hence TM Info attempts to provide a variety of informational materials.

Happily, I’ve found that when first-time dog owners are given management skills and shown how to use them, they have a better relationship with their dogs.

So welcome to the world of Thaddeus Munch!

Because there isn’t a clear “how-to” handbook for the Tibetan Mastiff breed, this new series of articles highlighting our site’s new mascot is intended and provided to owners so that advice may be given for ordinary circumstances. Believe me when I say that. I don’t claim to be an expert on everything.

However, when it comes to giving public advice on any breed, I’ve come to believe that an owner can only do his best to regulate his own and his dog’s conduct.

It may be that your dog proves the exception to the rule when it comes to any given strategy, but the following articles are intended to help owners understand basic guardian characteristics and to give specific management strategies to correct many common behavioral problems. 

I don’t breed any other breeds, so I can’t comment on their behavior or what an owner may expect of them. With nearly 15 years of experience living with and learning about the TM, it is significantly easier for this breeder to predict the Tibetan Mastiff’s expected reaction and outcome in any scenario.
