Regular brushing and combing are required. If this breed is left outside, his coat may become matted and odorous. The color is white or off-white.

This is a very hardy dog who is intelligent, alert, highly independent, obedient, and friendly, but can be a challenge to train. He has a sassy, impetuous side to his personality that is endearing yet troublesome. He is by nature a dominant, controlling breed that may become pushy if not given proper leadership. Training can be difficult due to his independent, stubborn nature and therefore must begin early. Training must be firm and consistent. The Samoyed will resist surrendering control and can show aggression toward his owners, particularly if they have been too lenient. Establishing dominance is the key to owning a Samoyed. Any spoiling will increase the chances of dominance aggression. He can take over as the leader of the pack, using bites, barking, and tantrums to get his way. The most difficult command to teach this breed is “Come”.

In addition, handling must occur every day to facilitate conflict-free grooming. If you wait too long, this breed will learn to be intolerant of brushing and may bite in protest. The Samoyed can be a good watchdog and barks more than most breeds, often to the point of irritation. He will bark, dig, and become a matted mess if left in the yard all day. This breed needs daily exercise, or he may become restless, destructive, and loud. He is susceptible to hip dysplasia and does not do well in warm climates.

 

As this is a brachycephalic (short faced) breed, it is important to understand the needs of this type of breed prior to purchase to ensure that this breed suits your lifestyle and climate, and to provide proper care during hot weather or excessive activities for the health and wellbeing of the dog.
