“Shanti” means “peace and tranquility” in
Tibetan so we have used “Shanti Soul” to
describe this majestic, honourable and very soulful
My family discovered the Tibetan
Mastiff for us by doing a search on the internet – curious
to see what breed might encapsulate some of we hoped
for in a new family member. We put down ALL the
elements we wished for in a “magic, ideal dog” and
up came the Tibetan Mastiff!
We had not heard of this breed or seen one ever before
but they did seem to be everything we hoped for in
a dog. Lots of research, doubts and books later, not to mention photos and visits to kennels I was hooked.
I won’t say that learning about their strong
guarding instincts and their wood eating ways did not
worry us, but we have found the intricacies of the
breed fascinating and would not want them any other
We love our dogs and treat them with the respect the
breed warrants. We love to play with them, socialize
them and sometimes just watch them!
They live indoors especially during the evening, but must have their mediation, guarding and fun time outside also.
In Australia and then in Europe we were active in
breed information and conformation showing. We also
feel it our duty to promote the breed, particularly
within Australia where not much is known about this
This is why we have imported 5 TMs, 4 from World Winning parents! Our imports have beautiful type, structure,
size and substance. We want to share with people the
very best we can. This is why we have invested heavily
in time, energy, money and frustration! Getting the
best pups from, in our opinion the best litters in
the world, ensuring they are loved, socialized and
shown in Europe and then ready to leave at the age
of 10 months for Australia, then going through the
worry of the long flight and then a month in Quarantine
at the time we asked ourselves if it was all worth
it… but it has been!
They are our best friends. They are our family.
We strive to breed the best quality dogs possible,
to honour the wonders of this breed and to enjoy daily
life with our pack!
