Pets in Mongolia

Hello everyone,

Many of us in Mongolia have four-legged friends. What about you? Do you have one or more pets? Share your experience with us!

What are the formalities to import pets in Mongolia? What about pet adoption procedures in the country? Did you bring your pet from your home country to your host country? If so, did everything turn out fine?

What do Mongolians think about pets? Are they comfortable with dogs, cats or unusual pets?

Well, our banhars (Tibetan Mastiffs) help with guarding our gers so I think we tolerate dogs pretty well. But we don't let them into our living rooms/kitchens/bedrooms. We usually throw a bone or two for them as snacks and feed them leftover meat for lunch and dinner. We treat them as guardians, and in return, we check off their basic necessities. It's a mutual relationship.
