Kyang La is a small hobbykennel for Tibetan mastiffs. Kyang La means
"The mountain for vild horses" Vi like that because we even
breed some jumping horses and live on a small mountain.
First Tibetan mastiff "Santtu" Rajakan Chan-Dos moved to us
year 2001. We want to breed Tibetanmastiffs which are healthy and with
good temperament without loosing their protective instinct and the very
special temperament they have.
had thought for many years abut what sort of dog we would have. Not
an easy task we can confirm!
We live on a farm on countryside with a very few neighbours and therefore
wanted a guard dog. This dog must be able evev to stay outside in all
weather conditions and still be a easy to take care of the coat and
not drag all the mud inside the house.
Me myself I have been brought up in a kennel with many different breeds.
We had Finnish hound dogs, one English Staffordshire bullterrier, many
Lhasa apsos and West highland white terriers. All these are pleasant
breeds but not the right breed for us today.
It was my mom who one day
after many years of thoughts suggested that we should have a closer
look at the Tibetan Mastiff. This we still owe her big thanks.
in the books referring to dogs you can not find very much information
about this rather rare breed. But as there is today the fantastic WEB
we could find many excellent homepages describing this breed.
I was able to find a breeder close to our own hometown in Finland, Oulu.
From her, Teija, I got valuable information about this breed. This dog
can only have puppies in the middle of the winter, we were too late
to reserve our puppy. But we got lucky. One family cancelled their reservation
and we could book our puppy- Santtu. She was born at a in Finland well
known breeder of the Tibetan mastiff. The Rajakan kennel was the first
in Finland to import the TM in to Finland and Mr Taisto Collanus is
the chairman of the Finnish TM-association..
Today we have five Tibetanmastiffs, Santtu and her three doughters, one male and
one male we are co-owner for.
