Tibetan Mastiff Puppy Weight Development (Year 1)
Large breeds like TMs tend to grow quickly because they are, well… large dogs! It is important to realize that breeding large dogs is different from breeding other dogs. Raising a Mastiff is similar to raising a human newborn baby.

Feeding A Tibetan Mastiff - Puppy Guidelines
Bowel Movements And Weight Measurement
Feeding T Mastiff Puppies (3-9 Weeks)
Tibetan Mastiff Puppy Feeding (6 Weeks)
Puppy Feeding (9 Weeks)
- Growing up with little to eat
- Consuming food that is considered inferior
- They are still infested by various parasites if they haven’t been wormed.
Feed A Tibetan Puppy (10-12 Weeks)
- A healthy weight is one that you feel your ribs and do not use pressure.
- Your dog will become obese if you apply pressure to feel his ribs.
- Visible ribs are a sign that your dog is underweight and they should eat more.
Adult Dog Food For Your TM Puppy (3 Months)
- The top ingredients shall be made from animal protein (organic, if possible).
- Beef, chicken, lamb, and fish are the best protein sources. You can also choose meat meals that have been dried to remove moisture.
- Fish oils and chicken fat are good sources of healthy fats. Omega fatty acids are good for dogs, as they make their hair shiny and keep their skin healthy.
- Avoid eating foods that may cause an allergic reaction in your TM. These include caffeine, wheat, onions, dairy products, and chocolate.
- Avoid sweet treats that contain artificial colors, preservatives, or sweeteners.

Tibetan Mastiff Puppy Maintenance (6 Months)
- Although this dog is large, do not put any weight on the back.
- Don’t tie your pup.
- If your TM doesn’t want to exercise, don’t force them to. Up to the age of one year, exercise isn’t a must.
- To avoid stomach twisting and bloating, allow for time between meals and exercise.
- Your Tibetan Mastiff puppy should not be allowed to jump on or off any object until they are at least one year old. This could cause serious injury and may void your breeder’s guarantee.
Play, Toys, and Treats - Dos and Don'ts
- Do not jump on others.
- Do not play with other TMs that are larger than your dog.
- It’s a great way to stimulate the brain and keep your pup entertained. The ball must be larger than the head of the pup.
- Mastiffs, and any other pup, should not be allowed to roam free. This is how tragedy happens.
- Avoid splintered bones, such as chicken bones.
- You should not use ‘Attack-type’ training with your mastiff. Positive reinforcement training is more sustainable. Yet, your TM will love you for being firm and disciplined.
Tibetan Mastiff Puppy Care (9 Months)
- Allow them to tag along to food markets and other places where they can adjust to loud, sudden sounds.
- Be patient, calm, and praise their courage.
- Your Tibetan Dog should not be given too many treats. This can cause weight gain.
Adult Tibetan Mastiff Health Care
- Canine Cystinuria – This kidney disease is most commonly passed to Mastiffs by genetic predisposition. This can block the bladder passage and cause bladder stones. The vet should be notified immediately if your mastiff has difficulty urinating.
- Gastric torsion – Mastiffs often suffer from gastric torsion, which is also known as bloating. It is caused by an excess of gas in the stomach. Bloated pups are very thirsty and have abdominal swelling. They also drool more than usual. The pup will show signs of discomfort such as pacing or restlessness.
- Joint issues – Mastiffs can develop structural problems due to their large size. This breed is most likely to suffer from hip and elbow dysplasia. They can be prevented by eating a healthy diet and exercising less strenuously.
