"Serbu" Tibetan Terriers

I have been training dogs for 20 years in performance sports and service dog training. I acquired my first Tibetan Terriers about 16 years ago and have been breeding Tibetan Terriers
for 14 years. I have produced many dogs that have been extremely successful in conformation along with 6 performance sports. Having a background that covers so many different areas has shown me the need for form and function as well as a decent temperament to create a well balanced Tibetan Terrier.
