You may be the new owner of a gorgeous Lhasa Apso, but if you don't know how to take care of your new best friend, it could end in disaster. Use this as a reminder and a guide on how to take care of your Lhasa Apso.
Love - As a dog, the first thing he/she needs is love. Play with your dog. Go to the dog park, play inside, whatever. Just be sure to love it enough so that it's not depressed.
Feeding - Lhasa Apsos usually only eat 1-2 times a day, so put the feeding bowl somewhere so that it can't get at it. One option is to use Nutramax dry food for feeding, plus a little wet food mixed in.
Grooming - Lhasa Apsos are naturally long haired, but can have short hair. Use a double sided brush to brush with - one with separated pins, another with nice smooth bristles.
Training - Some Lhasa's are too stubborn to train. Make sure you have a small treat to use. Common commands to teach your dog are: sit, heel, lie down, and fetch. An additional option is launch. Launching is pretty much an invisible Frisbee thrown in the air, while your dog jumps and gets it.
You need to train it to like strangers they can get very anxious to bite.
Lhasa Apsos hate cages.
Training is much easier if your dog loves you.
Don't overfeed your pet.
They do not like being bothered and can get offensive if you yell at them.
They get very jealous with other dogs.
It is hard to house train them.
Make sure your dog is on a leash for walks, as they will be pretty friendly toward strangers.
