Temperament: Here we see a dog that is intelligent, friendly and well mannered. This dog is lively and loves their owner. This breed has good hearing abilities, and makes a natural watchdog. The Lhasa Apso will love motivational training. This dog is small but it still is a dog that likes to be a dog. Avoid small dog syndrome by training, and giving your dog rules in the home and keeping to them. This breed needs a leader that is consistent, and stable, in their leadership.

Without good leadership this dog can have, an intolerance of children, on going barking, wilful behaviour, nervousness, even becoming aggressive, with guarding behaviour that is not desired. All this can be prevented. and give you a lovely balanced dog. Remember it is how you treat this dog. This dog needs mental and physical exercise daily. This dog will play well and this uses up some energy, but they still need daily walks.

Health issues: The Lhasa Apso can get skin problems, hip dysplasia, kidney problems, eye problems and bleeding ulcers.

Grooming: Their coat parts at the spine and falls straight either side. With a full coat they need brushing daily. Matting in the feet and joints can be a problem so needs to be checked often. Cleaning the eyes and ears needs to be done daily, as they can tear. If your Lhasa Apso is a family pet then you can get them clipped down, as this helps with the over all care of the coat. Dry shampoo as needed for this breed.

Living conditions: The Lhasa Apso can live in an apartment happily if their daily mental and physical exercise is met. This breed can live without a garden but will required daily walks.
