There Tibetan mastiff flock guard and the English bred Tibetan mastiff differ enormously in their temperament. The Tibetan guard dog is more aggressive and much more assertive making them hard to train. The English bred Tibetan mastiff is well known for its quiet and relaxed personality, while being a good guard dog and loyal to its family.
