The bitch comes into heat once a year and often in late autumn.   

The breed matures slowly. Bitches at three, four years of age and males up to a year later.
 


The dog has a double coat and sheds the undercoat in the spring or summer. The shedding takes about eight weeks.

After shedding, the dog still has got its long cover hair for a while and towards the fall the under wool begins to grow. The dog

need to be brushed regularly especially during the shedding.
  
TM is a big dog and needs room to move.  

Because the breed has been use for guarding cattle and house it still has got a habit for guarding and barking both when it is outside or inside.   

When a TM is outside its own territory  the willingness to guard is not that pronounced.   

TM is an intelligent breed with a good ability to adapt to different circumstances.

The breed has a natural instinct since way back in time to make their own decisions.

A TM is not always prepared to follow his owners will just to please. A TM can be
extremely resolute and go its own way if it feels it is necessary.  

The breed has been used as a cattle and guard dog which makes them excellent to watch
our homes. 

It is also patient with children, provided that consideration is mutual. 
  

A TM can be trained in obedience. But the breed's good intelligence and independence makes him not always want to perfom as other breeds might do.

A TM learns quickly. But hate repetitive exercises that are repetitive and boring.

A TM is often dominant to unknown dogs. But works well together with both animals and people if they are presented properly.

 

A TM is a good and loyal family member who hates to be away from its pack.

A TM is usually more active in the evenings and early mornings and more active outdoors than indoors.  

Several TM is known to climb over fences and shows almost athletic scills when it comes to cross barriers.

 

A TM is very much acting like a cat in the sense he is a free spirit and also the way he uses his paws.

You will probably never be able to have your TM off leash during your walks. 

A TM would probably explore the entire world and not just the route you want to walk.  

You will own a dog that will come when called those times hes has not got anything better to do.  

You may never get a TM to obey as other dogs can be trained to obey. It simply has no desire he is a free soul!  

You must always present new visitors to the dog if you want them to enter your house and sphere. Otherwise your TM to take them for intruders.  

You have to be aware of that your TM, especially as a youngster, suddenly gets the idea that something is dangerous and should be avoided. That does not matter if you declare that this is not the fact.  

You have to realize that angry discussion in the family upsets a TM. Therefore you must be able to educate your children and discuss with your partner without your TM thinking it is unpleasant.  

You must be willing to work hard with your dog's socialization from the beginning otherwise the dog after two, three years will be 50 kg strong watchdog and not 50 kg family dog.

You must be prepared off that the dog, especially as young, until the age of at least 3 years old, can be extremely destructive. In its search for chewing training it can get through the doors, banisters and wooden furniture in a very short time.  

You have a dog that loves to dig tunnels under fences, holes in the garden, hardwood floors and discounts. Digging is fun and a TM dig fast and very short time.

  

A TM barking deep and strong and often at night.

  

A large dog that sheds all the undercoat of 6-8 weeks will give you a lot of cleaning staff.
