After now almost twenty
years, guided breed and attitude of many
Do Khyi in Europe are present secured realizations over this wonderful
breed. But some remains also today still hidden secretly...
The nature, abilities,
the experience over the abilities and characteristics of the Do Khyi, all
knowledge of the nature and of the requirements is secured with the attitude
conditions results from this knowledge.
Under no circumstances the Do Khyi is a dog for “first dog owner” is
suitable, it see straight as a puppy upsetting to snuggle up however reliably it is suitable not as a dog only for
snuggling and stroking. Its character is proverbial, it is independent in
all its decisions and would like to be integrated as a complete family
member into the hierarchy of its group of families. The target must be it
that its decisions are also my decisions. Only with prudent consequence and
without hardness he is educated to a wonderful dog nature, which
automatically fulfilled its function in the family.
A Do Khyi is in its nature a herd protection dog,
these dogs likewise in the herd protection dog project of Professor Ray
Coppinger and worked completely. Likewise in accordance with and in
accordance with its over centuries of lasting application in Tibet he is a
yard guard and these functions he also assessment in accordance with will
assume. These instincts will to light step in each case also today still in
the course of its ripening.
apparently left - and nevertheless everything sees!
Do Khyi is a calm, more left almost majestically seeming dog in all to its
movements, which is gladly left and slowly-acting because of a strategically
favourable workstation. In its environment so easily nothing escapes it
nevertheless. An excellent vision apparently to the end of the horizon, an
extremely good aural acuteness, as well as the best capability of its nose
performance offers all sense performances to it around normal of not normal
to differentiate. In case of emergency it is to be announced very fast from
the quiescent position on the legs around not normal, for some is this speed
above all because these comes obviously unexpectedly very much impressing.
surprisingly the ability of this nevertheless so large dog is to be moved
perfectly noiseless. Sudden emerging, apparently from that anything,
likewise unnoticed disappearing can impress again and again.
The Do Khyi needs
the close linkage to its family, even if he seems to prefer frequently
independently the stay in the free one e.g. in the garden quite
independently of the group. Under any circumstances this
imposing, weather-insensitive dog for a kennel attitude is not suitable. The
even close confidence, its nature would break under it. The possibility of a
constant access to garden and in the house would be ideal.
constituent of its attitude is early and patient socialization beginning and
a prudent. This dog must outside into the city, to other carefully selected
dogs, to the trim you path in the forest, into the elevator, the course of
evenly always “to people"
Not " moving " is with such
walks the foreign exchange, but sees, understands, to know to learn.
Important always it is that one is determined this with its Do Khyi in the
future to do and in addition also bring along the necessary imperturbable
peace, patience and time.
Socialization makes fun - and needs time
with old and young dogs
Handling utilizable cattle
puppies- and young dog phase with the Do Khyi is generally different
compared with other dog races and lasts rather for a long time, up to four
years must the owner take into account around its dog introduce and train.
Peculiar however for herd protection dogs usually: the Tibet
Mastiff learns this by watching and copying, requires an exactly considered
“associate contact" also with other dogs.
On the other hand
its own attraction, this results meanwhile imposing in such a way large dog
has long time a young-dog mind and seems in puberty being to remain from
this long ripe phase. How often even many dog owners have themselves your
dog may in this delightful phase remain exact in such a way as it are
its memory and persons are which it meets forget it never. But likewise it
will remember humans, which it has in bad mind. Contradictory behavior
opposite a Do Khyi remembers lastingly and it this long to it to enter
afterwards, inappropriate hardness however acknowledges it with
inaccessibility and stubbornness. It is independently in the nature and as
dog for everyone will never offer themselves.
The Do Khyi is not
suitable for a career in the dog sport, under no circumstances should it in
the protection service be trained, it has a naturally minted protection
impulse of which must not be learned. On the other hand he has to quite
learn joy in it something, he learns fast with rapid apprehension, if he
does however something, then only for sake his reference person.
He speaks on
positive reinforcement by praise is enough strongly on and often a bad tone
in the voice as punishment. An unconditional obedience one will never
obtain, dog owner which such will always require with a Do Khyi to become
never correctly glad. To it somewhat once learned reliably executes requires
it many consequence and reliably three to four months. The type of the
execution must be entitled to it patiently. One will be able to never expect
a typically German, jagged execution of instruction.
Nevertheless the Do Khyi for the interests in our
surrounding field can be trained well and inserts themselves with
circumspection and constant consequence its owner well into its family.
Everywhere with it!
on the way - no problem!
joy prepares Mobility (a type of obstacle run for it, similarly as Agility,
but not on measured time). A training for its mobility and its
self-confident its is it naturally given defeating of obstacles of all
kinds, as a mountain dog always concerns it such functions with
circumspection and consideration.
The largest joy
however I believe, can one to the Do Khyi prepare by “ travel tours like the
nomads " with tent and gas cooker, this would be probably exactly the life
for which he is made. Evenly this preference differentiates it from the
other flock guard dog breeds. Its territory is always, where its reference
person establishes itself.
Exactly this characteristic however explains the
large responsibility that some future Do Khyi - Owner must to be ready take
The linkage this dog to
be received is ready will be always intensively related to these few persons
and should thoughtlessly never be resolved by humans!
