Our Tibetan Terrier page has been updated - see the links to materials and presentations from the TT World Conference: 2017 held in the UK earlier this year. The Tibetan Terrier Association and Tibetan Terrier Breeders & Owners Club co-sponsored the event where attendees representing the worldwide TT fancy were treated to fabulous presentations on the breed standard, health statistics and more. Kudos go to the TTA for making these educational presentations available on their website!
