A fair amount of interaction with other pets is fine with Lhasa Apso dogs. However, they are not always good with other dog breeds. Caregivers must ensure that they start introducing their Lhasas to other dogs from a young age.
Lhasa Apsos can make good family dogs if trained and conditioned from a young age. They can do well with children if they are exposed to them early on.
Lhasa Apsos are independent in nature. They can be left alone at home for a few hours, but it is always best to have someone come and check in on them as and when necessary.
Lhasa Apsos need to be groomed very frequently. They need to be bathed as and when their hair becomes a mess. Combing their hair regularly is also very important. It is not difficult to groom Lhasa Apsos, but caregivers need to be consistent.
Lhasa Apsos are calm dogs. However, they are prone to barking at strangers or other dogs since they become very protective. However, with consistent training, you can control your Lhasa’s barking triggers.
