BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The American Eskimo is a beautiful and well balanced Spitz-type, it looks like a miniature snowy white Samoyed. No one knows exactly when and how they originated. The American Eskimo is possibly related to the White German Spitz (imported from Germany in the 1800?s), White Keeshond and Samoyed, however as is commonly thought it was not descended from nordic sled dogs. It has been bred solely to be a loving companion and hardy watch dog, he is wonderful with his family including children and is known for their beauty, agility and longevity.

COLOR
Pure white, off white or cream.

COAT
The American Eskimo Dog has a double coat. The undercoat is dense and plush-like, while outer coat is harsh and straight, not curly or wavy.

PERSONALITY
The American Eskimo are considered to be one of the most intelligent of all dog breeds. He is a charming, affectionate, hardy and playful nordic type dog who enjoy cold better than hot weather. Eminently pet-able, Eskimos need to be part of the family and loves to be lavished with attention. Naturally wary of strangers, never overly shy nor aggressive, they become instant friends once introduced to them.

CARE
The American Eskimo is an exceptionally healthy breed, although they are prone to hip dysplasia, cataracts and progressive retinal atrophy, also fleas can cause dermatitis. The thick snowy white coat is easier to maintain then you may think because it contains natural oil that drive-off dirt. The American Eskimo need to be brush three or four time a week with a firm bristle in spring and summer because he tend to sheds heavily, otherwise grooming is moderate.

TRAINING
Eskies are easily trained and extremely intelligent, he learn new tasks quickly and tend to ranks highly in obedience trials. The American Eskimo need to be stimulated and is training must be done with firmness, gentleness and consistency. They make excellent watchdogs of their family and home, suspicious and wary, they bark to announce the presence of strangers.

ACTIVITY
American Eskimos must have regular daily exercise because this breed can gain weight easily if it does not get enough. Eskies are very active indoors and benefit immensely from family play sessions. They enjoy daily walks or playing in an enclosed yard.
