History

It belongs to the oldest dog breeds in the world.

For centuries, the Greenland Dog has accompanied the Inuit in their common homeland: It is said that more than 1.000 years he came with his ancestors from Siberia to North America. In the icy expanses it still serves the inhabitants as a versatile all-rounder and has always been bred specifically for its ability to work and its robustness.. Helped in hunting seals and polar bears, as well as in dragging loads through ice and snow, even over long distances. In times of need, it also served as food for the inhabitants in the past.

The outstanding physical abilities of the Greenland Dog they also sparked the interest of the first polar explorers, who saw him as an ideal companion for expeditions. For example, Roald Amundsen, the most successful explorer of the Arctic and Antarctic, was also accompanied by Greenland dogs. The breed has its origin in Greenland and, therefore, is under the patronage of Denmark. Genetically, the Greenland Dog is identical to canadian eskimo dog, that is not recognized by the FCI. Today, the Greenland dog belongs to a total of four breeds of sled dogs. By his side are the Alaskan Malamute, the Samoyed and the Siberian Husky.

Physical characteristics

The characteristics of this dog have always been more important than its appearance. The strong build allows the Greenland Dog to drag loads through the snow for long periods of time. Size variations are possible, with males generally over 60 cm in height to the cross, females over 55 cm.. The ears are upright, triangular and slightly rounded at the tip. This sled dog wears its tail slightly curled on its back. The coat consists of a smooth undercoat and a fairly thick, smooth top coat. The fur is longer on the head, the legs and the lower part of the tail than the rest of the body. All coat colors except merle and albino are allowed. The eyes should be slightly slanted and dark – blue or different colored eyes lead to disqualification according to the standard.

Character and skills

From Greenland, the largest island in the world, this four-legged friend has conquered the hearts of many dog ​​lovers. However, keeping a sled dog like this requires not only experience, but above all a lot of space and time to satisfy the need for movement of this robust worker.

The character of the breed is determined by its field of application: Like Inuit sled dogs, the greenlandic dogs they are very persistent and full of energy. It also, hunting companions are brave and show a pronounced hunting instinct. Because most of them lived in the pack and rendered their faithful services to several people, do not tend to bond strongly with people , but they are basically human friendly – and therefore are not suitable as watchdogs. However, they do not usually miss the opportunity to greet friends – or strangers – loudly and cheerfully.

Attention: The greenlandic dog may not bark much, but tends to howl a lot. He loves to live with other dogs in a pack.

Greenland Dog Education

Who wants to train a Greenland Dog need knowledge, experience with dogs and above all a lot of patience. A clear hierarchy is very important to the independent sled dog and will question it if the opportunity presents itself.. This applies to other dogs as well as their owners. You need a reliable consequence and a sensible education, accept your own head (stubborn) of the race. Exhausting this dog both physically and mentally is the basic requirement for a good education., as a little challenged sled dog will want to vent elsewhere, and this is probably not to the liking of its owners. It makes sense to go to puppy school with this dog, to be widely socialized with conspecifics of different sizes and breeds. If you want to train with the growing dog in a canine school, you should clarify in advance if the trainers have already had experience with the special character of sled dogs.

Greenland Dog Health

For centuries, robustness has been the main breeding objective of this four-legged friend, It is not surprising that the Greenland Dog be one of those breeds that have hardly any health restrictions. However, when i buy a puppy, look for parents who are free of hip dysplasia (HD) – some lines may have a slight tendency to this. As with all big dogs, the stomach can also be twisted, so it is important to take breaks after meals. Due to its origin and its fur, that adapts to icy conditions, These breeds are considered to be heat sensitive and, therefore, should not be kept in hot countries. Nor should you encourage your Greenland Dog to carry out sports activities above the 15 degrees Celsius. Your companion will feel correspondingly comfortable in the colder season. In winter, However, make sure you take proper care of the paws, as road salt can quickly lead to chapped or inflamed skin.

Greenland dog nutrition

One Greenland Dog in the use of sled dogs consumes enormous amounts of energy and needs an appropriately adapted diet. Therefore, it is important to adapt the amount of food to the workload and the constitution of these dogs – information provided by manufacturers can only provide approximate guidelines. Of course, the puppy's energy requirement is not yet that high, since you should only move moderately anyway.

Feed your puppy three to four servings of a high-quality food per day.. Regardless of the age of your puppy, meat should be the first element of the diet and therefore the main component of food. It also, cereals have no place in dog food. If your quad performs well, increase the amount of food accordingly.

Food should be relatively high in fat and low in carbohydrates, as well as dietary fibers to supply your endurance athlete with sufficient energy. It is important that a session of physical activity is carried out with a time interval between the last meal – it is better to feed your Greenland dog three hours before training and in any case avoid too much exercise after feeding. This is the only way to minimize the risk of a life-threatening stomach twist. Of course, it is also important that fresh water is always available for your four-legged friend. On longer trips you should take adequate precautions and carry enough water with you.

Greenland dog care

A coarse-toothed comb is sufficient to comb the soft undercoat – this should be done regularly, especially during coat change, because the Greenland Dog misses – not only during this time – a relatively large amount of hair. If your partner has gotten dirty, usually it is enough to let the coat dry and then comb it well. Stubborn dirt should be gently rubbed off the coat with a damp cloth.. A bath is not normally necessary – if this happens, use a mild dog shampoo.

Especially with older dogs that move less, you should check if your partner is wearing out his claws enough and if necessary help with claw scissors. They also have eye and ear cleaners and dog tick tweezers ready to use when needed.. For dental care, for example, special dog treats are suitable. Or you can use a dog toothbrush and toothpaste, which is particularly effective in fighting tartar. Many dog ​​owners perform this ritual for well-groomed small teeth regularly.. However, if you are considering this, you should get your puppy used to.

Employment for Greenland Dogs

Properly use a Greenland Dog in other latitudes it is a demanding task for which only a minority of dog lovers have enough time and space. Ideally, sled dog training should take place with him, which in turn is only possible to a very limited extent in most countries. An alternative is training with special trainers. As well Canicross offers sports owners the possibility to discover nature together with their partner. This four-legged friend also likes long walks through the woods as a supplement. Always be aware of your pronounced hunting instinct. It is essential that you have it under control to be able to enjoy relaxed walks. Always pay attention to an age-appropriate load and don't overload your four-legged companion.

Is a Greenland Dog right for me??

The Greenland Dog is a four-legged friend for sports connoisseurs who appreciate his independence and want to do many outdoor activities with him. Under no circumstances does this sled dog from the frozen expanses of Greenland belong to an apartment or even the city – nor does it belong to the warm regions of southern Europe. If you want to live with a greenlandic dog, you should think about buying two of them at once, because dogs like to be together with conspecifics. If you live in the country, you can keep your greenlandic dogs in a pack under the open sky in a leak-proof garden with an open kennel. So the heat sensitive sled dog can look for a shady spot in the summer – this should absolutely be available.

Of course, the Greenland Dog also happy with family connections. However, it's not the classic “one person dog”. In any case, these companion animals are never primarily family or companion dogs, but rather working dogs – you should always be aware of this. If one can use your dog to his full capacity, they can live well with a family and so they are also extremely kid-friendly.

Cats or small animals are not suitable to live with this ambitious hunter. You don't have to be a professional dog if you decide to stay with this four-legged friend, but you must already have some experience with dogs and above all do not underestimate the time required for the workload. Due to these requirements, the Greenland Dog It is a breed for connoisseurs that can meet high maintenance demands.

Where do I find my desired Greenland dog??

One greenlandic dog is a rarity in Central Europe. So if you want a Greenland Dog move in with you, you should contact the Nordic dog breed clubs. They can arrange contacts with Greenland dog breeders – also abroad – and advise you on the breed requirements if necessary. If you are looking for a sled dog and cannot find one in your region, should consider whether one of the other three sled dog breeds would be an alternative: the Siberian Husky are much more common in Europe. With a little distance one also comes across relatively easily with breeders of malamutes de Alaska or samoyed. But: All breeds pose great challenges to their owners.

If you are looking for a greenlandic dog older and grown up, I should look for dogs of Nordic breeds, especially in animal shelters. Although you will most likely not find a purebred Greenlandic dog here, many Nordic dogs whose owners have underestimated their urge to move are waiting for a competent new home where they will be given enough occupancy. The most promising way to find them is to search the internet. If required, Nordic dog breed clubs can also give you tips on finding. Surely you will find a Nordic quadruped that will envelop you in a short time with its charm. Ideally, this person should not live too far from home., so that you and your potential new roommate can get to know each other before you decide to let her move in. Remember that these dogs live better with other dogs of the same species and clarify – with the breeder or the current foster home of the animal protection – how well the new dog fits in with an existing dog or if you decide to get a duo right away.

The area inhabited by the people of the MALAMUTE were the banks of Kotzebue Sound, a territory between two great rivers: the Kobuk and the Noatak. Men and women of the tribe mahlemiut (MALAMUTE) They were highly prized among others Inuit tribes for their courage, his pride and his skill in hunting and fishing.

    These dogs were famous for their beauty and for their characteristics of strength and endurance., that made them excellent elements for shooting.

They were, in general, larger and more powerful than the other Nordic dogs, with similar in appearance to the Wolf and large and soft tails carried on the back. Contemporary witnesses tell it between 1870 and 1880 approximately, caribou, for unexplained reasons, changed their usual migratory routes, thus taking away from the Malamute tribes an important source of livelihood.

Under these conditions, families could no longer afford to keep groups of dogs made up of more than two or three dogs.: testimonies of the time talking about men, women and even children helped their dogs to pull the sledges. So the population began to decline and the same fate befell their dogs.

Breeding and maintenance

Is an Alaskan Malamute right for me??

The Alaskan Malamute a dog is not for beginners. You have high demands on your attitude, stemming from its destiny as an original sled dog. All the lives of their caregivers, your human family must adjust to your needs. The real MALAMUTE needs the challenge before the sled physically and mentally. Here are several replacement possibilities even without snow. We see a kind of sled on wheels like a tricycle or a training car with four tires. Especially for Malamutes, drag competitions are organized, which are accepted by the dogs with great joy and full commitment. Especially the sport of dogsledding has something very special. Driving with the sleigh of the MALAMUTE through a snowy landscape in winter is one of the greatest experiences of all.

It also allows you to experience a deep unity between man-dog and nature in a way that is hardly possible otherwise.. Of course it is also good for your health.

When traveling, it is better to take the MALAMUTE in an aluminum transport box. The Malamute is not a dog for an apartment. A house with a “yard” should be an ideal space for this breed.

The MALAMUTE it is one of the few breeds of dog that can be kept as a pack in a kennel without any problem. But this kennel must be well secured. It is not that Malamutes are a danger to the environment, but they are kings of escape and they dig well and with gusto. You can hardly believe, through which little holes these heavy dogs can escape.

To the malamutes they like to sleep outside and snuggle with their head under their tail during the biggest snowstorm. The garden, where the Malamutes, should not be considered as an ornamental garden, to put it in a nice way. The malamutes require that the entire lifestyle be in tune with this association.

The Alaskan Malamute can be well trained by an experienced dog owner. One must accept the challenge, even love, of fighting mentally with these primitive and self-confident dogs. They will gladly accept their masters and caregivers, will be loyal to them, but they must have leadership qualities combined with a lot of doggy mind. You have to fully commit to the experience of having a MALAMUTE. Not a dog for people without deep canine experience.

History

Where does he come from Samoyed originally?

The Samoyed is the archetype of a dog from the far north. It belongs to the archetypes of the dog in general. The Samoyed it is one of the oldest dog breeds. Type dogs Samoyed have accompanied the peoples of Siberia for thousands of years. The Samoyeds (or nenets) son varios pueblos indígenas que han vivido durante miles de años en toda Siberia hasta el Océano Ártico. La mayoría viven como nómadas y siguen las manadas de renos salvajes o semisalvajes. Their dogs have different tasks. They pull the sleds with the household goods or with the hunters for the hunt. They pull the boats over the snow into open water. They help with the reindeer herds. They guard and protect people as if they were herds.

They defied death even when facing the polar bear, the world's largest land predator. The Samoyeds provide an excellent navigation system that makes its way through icy deserts even in fog or snow storms, avoiding cracks and ice holes. They often sleep in the tents of the Samoyedos. They keep each other warm. Así que no es sorprendente que los pueblos Samoyeds tengan una relación extremadamente íntima con sus perros, and not only because their existence in the far north depends on these dogs.

The Countess Aga von Hagen reports in his book on dog breeds from 1933 that the “Samoyed Spitz” was treated as a sacred dog in his homeland and that no family Samoyed voluntarily separated from his dogs. On the other hand, the Countess explains that the Samoyed Spitz, through this close connection, show a “alto desarrollo de las características mentales a pesar de su ferocidad”. Was not up 2017 that a report by Russian archaeologists was published, que habían encontrado restos de 9000 años de antigüedad de diez perros en Siberia. En el permafrost estos estaban tan bien conservados que podían ser examinados de cerca y clasificados como perros de trineo.

Only in 1889 el inglés Ernest Kilburn-Scott managed to import the first Samoyeds from Siberia. Así que estos perros entraron en la cría moderna de perros con pedigrí. Immediately one turned to their outer appearances. El color blanco se elevó como una característica de un Samoyed basically arbitrarily to standard. At that moment, like today, se and take Samoyed original in many colors, only rarely in pure white. To impose the pure white color, la endogamia se llevó a cabo de acuerdo con este dudoso criterio y así se perdió gran parte del carácter real y la extrema robustez del Samoyed. It also, la base de cría ya era muy pequeña de todos modos, porque los pueblos siberianos eran reacios a renunciar a sus perros para la cría en Inglaterra.

Finally, in the decade of 1950 they also crossed the original line, these being very different in character and, if you look closely, also in appearance. Although the Samoyed actual de la cría europea ha perdido gran parte del carácter original del verdadero perro de Siberia, still an original breed. The most exciting thing about him is that he shows at the same time a close connection with humans. Not without reason, the Samoyed is one of the founders of other breeds of dogs such as the Eurasian. The first standard for Samoyed it was created in 1909, in 1913 was recognized in England. The FCI, Fédération Cynologique Internationale recognized her in 1959.

Physical characteristics

Males tend to have more size females usually weigh between 20 and 32,5 kg, while females usually weigh between 17 and 25 kg.

The eyes of the Samoyed they are usually black or brown, and slanting. The nose or truffle must be well developed and preferably black. En algunas épocas del año puede aclararse dando lugar a la comúnmente llamada “nose in winter”. Some other factors such as age or climate can clarify it, but it is important to always keep the edges of black. Por lo contrario significaría una obligada visita veterinaria.

The ears they should be thick and completely covered with hair, form triangular, and upright. En la mayoría de los casos son blancas, but occasionally they can be Brown clear (known as color “cookie”).

The tail of the Samoyed it is one of the most distinctive features of this breed. As the Mally, the tail hanging hook-shaped on his back; However, and unlike the Malamute, the tail of Samoyed touches back and leans over, slightly, on one side and must not be a very closed hook or in the form of “flag”.

En climas fríos, some Samoyed sleep with their tails over their noses to provide additional protection. Most of the Samoyed, They allow the tail to fall when they are relaxed, but they back to its original position when they are alert.

The Samoyed, they have a dense double coat of hair. The top layer has a dense, straight and thick hair, It seems the white but it has some dyes of silver. This top layer keeps the Undercoat relatively clean and free of debris. The bottom layer is a soft, dense and short hair that keeps the dog warm.

The bottom layer is changed from one to two times a year, process known as shedding of hair. This in no way means that they move hair only on these occasions, year-round fine hair it is moved and replaced, el cual –habitualmente- sticking it on your clothes or simply air fleet.

The Samoyed standard can have a mix of color White and biscuit, Although dogs completely white or completely color cookie are not rare. Males are generally longer than females fur.

The Samoyed, son buenos aseándose a sí mismos, not too many baths still needed. La suciedad por lo general cae fácilmente de las capas exteriores de pelo, making the dog show clean.

The hair of the puppies is more porous, so it is easier to you manche with the grass and mud if they are long time outdoors. El aspecto del cepillado es más difícil, that by their thick fur in some areas like the back of the ears tend to tangle is if not brushes weekly.

The Samoyed will require that, cut the hair that grows between their feet bearing, pero con esta excepción el resto puede permanecer así, course.

History

The story of him “Yakutian Laika” is very extensive. For centuries, sleds pulled by dogs was something very important for the majority of peoples of the North of Russia, due to their way of life and the climate to which they were subjected. In the Neolítico, en la línea de la costa del noreste de Asia, These dogs were used for transportation and hunting.

At the beginning of the year 90, There was a finding on Zhokhov Island (Novosibirsk Islands, Yakutia), they found an archaeological site of hunters and dogs. It was investigated by an archaeologist from St. Petersburg, Vladimir Pitulko, allí encontró restos de arqueológicos de trineos, arneses y que aún conservaban los huesos de los perros. A través del método de radiocarbono demostraron que esos restos tenían una antigüedad de 7.800 to 8.000 years. This, es el hallazgo más antiguo que ha tenido lugar en el Ártico.

Ethnographers MG Levin (1946), Smolyak AV (1978) and other authors, they share that since ancient times (up until the present day), para los pueblos aborígenes del norte, the sled dogs were always universal animals: they were shooting animals, they were used also as food, and their skins were used for the manufacture of clothing and the rituals of worship. Times, the dogs were sacrificed and were used for religious ceremonies.

Muchos descubrimientos geográficos en el Ártico fueron posibles, with the sled dogs. The two poles of the Earth were discovered with the help of these dogs, in 1907, F. Cook and 1909 R. Piry reached the North Pole. In 1911, Amundsen was a Norwegian flag at the South Pole, in hostile climatic conditions, made 2.980 miles in 99 días con perros de trineo.

Until 1960 sleds pulled by dogs teams were important and, a veces la única forma disponible de transporte de invierno en las regiones del norte de Rusia. They were used not only by the local population, but also by government agencies, including troops from the border, el servicio postal y expediciones científicas. According to data from file, at the end of the 50 years of 20th century, in Northern Uluses of Yakutia, el número total de perros fue de 33 000. La disminución de trineos tirados por perros en Rusia se inició durante los últimos treinta años del siglo XX, When appeared on the market the snowmobiles, This led to a decline of fur and the local fishing industry, that little by little led to the extinction of the use of sledge dogs

This phrase describes the importance that have had these dogs to the length and breadth of history, and that in turn, demuestra que sin ellos mucho de lo que hoy conocemos pertenecería a nuestra ignorancia.

In Siberia, los ríos se dividen enríos de perro” and “ríos de venado”. En los ríos ricos en peces, It was easy to capture and store enough fish (dry fish – yukola) para alimentar a los perros y por eso se les llamaba los ríos perro. When there are fish no, era difícil de usar perros para el transporte y los renos fueron utilizados, que son los ríos de renos. La travesía a lo largo de los “ríos de perros” era más difícil, due to the continued need for fishing and hunting to obtain enough food for dogs.

In 1843, published the “Manual de Geografía del Imperio Ruso” from Ivan Yakovlevich Pavlovsky, in this book, described the Yakutian Laika as a special race, as “a domesticated animal used to pull sleds and hunting”.

History

Where does he come from Siberian Husky originally?

The history of the Siberian Husky is inseparably connected with the lives of the people of the Arctic Circle. Only with their dogs, that pulled the sleds, they helped in the hunt, provided reliable GPS, they protected them from polar bears and finally warmed them on cold nights, the people there managed to survive. However, the Siberian Husky as a modern dog breed it is quite young. Its history began around 1910, and in Alaska the huskies they were bigger and stronger, comparable to current MALAMUTE.

At the sled races a Siberian fur trader appeared with his thin dogs. They were called “Husky“, at that time an expletive for the eskimos. But these dogs won race after race. The polar explorer Roald Amundsen noticed them. Norwegian Leonard Seppala began to reproduce them. His breakthrough came in 1925 when a diphtheria epidemic broke out in the remote city of Name in the middle of the polar winter. In the extremely heavy snow there was no way to get through. Adults and children died. so brave mushers under Seppala's leadership they decided to bring the salivary serum to more than 1000 kilometers with their sleds of huskies. They gave it their all and the people were saved. A monument was erected on the Central Park in New York in honor of Husky. Even today the “Great Iditarod Sled Race” is still celebrated every year in Name.

The Husky Siberian began his triumphal procession with the people of the sled dogs. He benefited from the fact that mushers they wanted fast dogs for short distances, While the inuit depended on endurance and long distances. There are many breeds of sled dogs that vary according to need, as the Husky de Alaska. But only the Siberian Husky is recognized as a breed of dog.

In 1932 the standard that defines it as a working sled dog was approved according to the “form for function”. In the USA., breeders started around 1970 to create a Husky For the general public. Two lines developed, the Showdog and the Siberian Husky employee.

Popular mixes

Physical characteristics

How is a “Siberian Husky”?

The Siberian Husky, call Husky To abreviate, it is one of the most original dog breeds. Has an unmistakable appearance. One Husky embodies wildlife, he immediately remembers his father the wolf. In fact, it is one of the dog breeds most closely genetically related to the wolf. And that, even though he has been working as a sled dog for over 10.000 years and there has been no significant interbreeding with wolves since then, as shown by genetic investigations from 2020. The official FCI standard still defines the Siberian Husky as:

Medium size working dog, fast, light feet… extremely capable of performing its original task as a sled dog and pulling light loads at moderate speed over long distances.

All colors from black to white are allowed. Characteristic is the structure of its coat with a very dense undercoat and a skin-like topcoat.. As a whole, the Husky reminds of a wolf in appearance, complexion and sometimes in his coat.

One Husky moves with light feet. His walk is unmistakable. It is a special pleasure to see your elegance and power in space while running. However, only one legend says that a black eye belongs to the Husky. Although it is allowed by the rule, still a genetic defect. Inuit have avoided blue eyes, because they reduce your vision in the polar sun.

Characteristics and traits

The Husky is a highly specialized working dog. Running is his passion, especially pulling sleds. If you are interested in a Husky, you should visit the sled dog races in winter. It is deeply impressive and fascinating. You can feel the extreme tension of the dogs much earlier. When you go to the exit, there is hardly a stop. Like in an explosion, this tension dissolves in the rapid acceleration of the sled, which can then be dragged over dozens of kilometers in a stretch. The Siberian Husky loves this job and needs it too. This is a challenge to your position.

The Husky it is a modern and archaic dog. In his character there is much wolf life although – purely genetically speaking – is not more closely related to him than other dogs. The huskies they are quiet but excellent observers and can, for example, steal a piece of sausage from your plate in an instant and with great precision. They don't make much of a fuss about their actions. At most before a common excursion the temper crosses them. The huskies they are excellent hunters. To their humans they are friendly and gentle. The Husky he is not a guard dog but is willing to defend his family effectively.

Caution, health and diseases

How much care does a “Siberian Husky”?

The Siberian Husky needs regular grooming, at least weekly. Coat changes, twice a year, they are particularly intense. Then your house, his car and his clothes will be full of his long hair, even if you brush it daily.

Typical diseases of the breed

The Siberian Husky it is a very healthy breed as long as it is not raised in extreme conditions. One extreme is the racing huskies, that are only optimized for the sporting success of mushers. Here we see many deformations of the march, thermal balance, the entire cardiovascular system and even the psyche. Partially bad in both directions, what is made of these extremely robust primitive dogs today.

What food is best for a “Siberian Husky”?

The Siberian Husky is often a very picky eater. That is why their diet is often demanding. Of course, this always depends a little on each dog. The mushers they have secret recipes with treats to provide their dogs with enough energy before the races.

Activities

The Siberian Husky Nowadays it is divided into two types as described. In both, However, the Husky
authentic still alive. The huskies they want to run. This doesn't just mean an extensive nature walk. Can you feel the essence of a Husky when you experience it at sled dog races. You can only keep one Siberian Husky in a species-appropriate way, if you do a sled sport or its variants for training without snow. Otherwise, you have to give it a lot of activity, all days.

Considerations before purchase

where can you buy a “Siberian Husky”?

If you are interested in a Siberian Husky, the first thing to do is check if you want and can spend at least the next ten years of a common sporting life with these dogs. Then you should find a trusted local breeder, or in an animal shelter.

Education and maintenance

Is a suit for me “Siberian Husky”?

The Siberian Husky a dog is not for beginners. You have high demands on your attitude, stemming from your destiny as a sled dog. All of our routines must be tailored to your needs. This applies especially to working line dogs.. In the case of show lines for family dogs, these requirements are only valid up to a point. Dogs accustomed to living in an apartment can sometimes even be seen directly here. But are they still huskies?

The real Siberian Husky needs the challenge in front of the sled physically and mentally. There are many possibilities here even without snow. We see a kind of sled on wheels like a tricycle or a training car with four tires. Canicross is the name of the discipline in which huskies they pull a runner by the lap belt. In bike riding they pull a mountain bike, in scooterjöring of a special scooter, in skiing of a skier. This type of dog sport has something very special. It allows you to experience a deep unity between the man-dog and nature in a way that is otherwise almost impossible..

Ride with a sleigh of Huskies through a snowy landscape in winter is one of the greatest experiences of all. Of course it is also good for your health.

Sporting success should never be sought at the expense of dogs. The Siberian Husky not a dog for an apartment. The ideal would be a house with a garden. The Husky it is one of the few dog breeds that can be kept in a kennel with several dogs. He likes to sleep outside and curls his head under his tail during the heaviest snowfall and enjoys his peace and quiet. The garden, where to Huskies they like to stay, should not be considered as an ornamental garden.

The Siberian Husky can be well trained by an experienced dog owner. He is open and honest and likes to work alongside his master or carer, although his “will to please” be limited. Not a partner for any kind of tricks. Only when it comes to pulling a sled are you with all your senses and all your will to do so. Quickly learn to follow the orders of the musher.

History

Similar to the Hotocho (or Mongolian sheepdog), the Canadian Eskimo (or Qimmiq en inuktitut) it is a very old canine breed, perhaps one of the first to accompany man to this part of the globe, almost ago 4.000 years. Faithful companion of the Inuit people of Thule, was bred and trained to become a tough working dog, able to travel long distances at a steady pace. It also, your complexion, their excellent sense of smell and intelligence were used to locate the breathing holes of seals for hunting and to protect families from musk oxen and polar bears..

In the Decade of 1920, el esquimal canadiense seguía estrechamente asociado a la cultura inuit, With almost 20.000 Eskimos working alongside men in the northern territories. However, this golden age was not going to last. In effect, the arrival of the snowmobile in the years 60, the massive and systematic killing of Inuit dogs by the Canadian government (officially, por razones de salud pública – unofficially, say some, to intimidate and forcibly assimilate Inuit peoples, eliminando su principal herramienta de trabajo y un símbolo de su cultura), the introduction of new breeds of sled dogs such as the Siberian Husky, así como una cierta vulnerabilidad a las enfermedades que traen estos últimos, are literally decimating purebred Canadian Eskimo populations. In 1963, sólo había un Canadian Eskimo Dog registrado en el libro de cría del Canadian Kennel Club, which then declared the race extinct.

This statement proved premature. However, it did not count on the tenacity of William Carpenter, Bill Thompson, John McGrath (founders of the Research Foundation of the Canadian Eskimo Dog) and Brian Ladoon (breeder and musher, that is to say, sled driver). With government support to preserve Inuit cultural heritage, el cuarteto emprendió una expedición a las regiones más remotas del Ártico canadiense con el objetivo de encontrar ejemplares esquimales canadienses de pura raza. Their efforts paid off and, thanks to the specimens unearthed in the Inuit villages, se puso en marcha un programa de cría. Pocos años después, in 1970, había nada menos que 200 animals. Today, this figure reaches the 300 individuals around the world.

Although the United Kennel Club American recognized the Canadian Eskimo as a race in its own right in 1996, was not up 2018, year in which the breed was recognized by the International Cynological Federationand (FCI) and Central Canine Society, cuando la raza pasó realmente a la primera línea del mundo canino y el público en general y los aficionados ilustrados conocieron no solo las cualidades de este perro, but also the precariousness of its existence.

However, although some specimens have crossed the Atlantic to the United Kingdom, the spread of the breed remains for the time being essentially limited to Canada and the United States, e incluso allí, the breeders of Canadian Eskimo Dog they are still scarce.

Physical characteristics

At first sight, it is clear why the Canadian Eskimo has helped the Inuit people for so long. Strength, power, resistencia y vigor son los primeros adjetivos que vienen a la mente al describir a este perro capaz de realizar un esfuerzo constante en condiciones ambientales difíciles.

The Canadian Eskimo is of medium build, with a strong neck and chest, but with legs of medium height. Con sus huesos y músculos bien definidos, su físico poderoso y majestuoso refleja que es principalmente un perro muy resistente, not very fast. It should be noted in passing that females are slightly smaller and less muscular than males.

It is also interesting to note that the Canadian Eskimo is quickly big enough to work: although it does not reach full maturity until around the 3 years of age, it is capable of transporting loads from the 7 months. Puppies are often described as miniature adults, with the ears upright and upright on the skull and the tail coiled from the third week.

Like most of the Spitz, the head of the Canadian Eskimo is angular and elevated, with straight, thick ears. The eyes are placed at an angle and give the animal a serious attitude. The bushy tail is carried high or curled on the back.

The coat of the Canadian Eskimo It is thick, with a smooth top layer and a dense and uniform wool bottom layer, providing optimal thermal insulation for adverse weather conditions. Esto los convierte en una de las razas de perros más adaptadas al frío. Males also have a long mane that covers the neck and shoulders. Females usually have the shortest upper layer, which contributes to give the impression of a finer animal.

The breed standard does not allow smooth fur. Therefore, the Canadian Eskimo must always have a coat with a combination of colors, without the distribution of one color taking precedence over the others:

  • Completely white fur with pigmentation around the eyes, on the nose and lips (is not an albino);
  • white coat with only a very small amount of red, buff (including cinnamon shading), gray or black around the ears and eyes;
  • white coat with red markings, beige, cinnamon, gray or black around the ears and eyes, or the head completely marked with these colors, sometimes with small spots of the same color on the body, usually around the hips or on the flank;
  • Red and white, or buff and white, or cinnamon and white, or black and white, with a distribution to 50% of each of the two colors in the different parts of the body;
  • red or beige or cinnamon, with white on the chest and/or on the legs and lower part of the body;
  • Sabre body or black or dark gray, with white on the chest and/or on the legs, under the body, occasionally extended to the neck like a gola;
  • silvery grey or greyish white fur;

Brown bottom layer and black top layer.

The white mask shaded around the eyes and/or around the nose, with or without dots above the eyes, es una característica física común en los perros con un color bien definido en la cabeza. Very rarely, the dots above the eyes, así como las marcas de las mejillas, can be buff-colored, adding a third color to a normally bicolored dog.

Size and weight

▷ Male size: 58 to 70 cm.
▷ female size: 50 to 60 cm.
▷ Male weight: 30-40 kg
▷ female weight: 18-30 kg

Character and skills

The character of Canadian Eskimo reflects the harsh environmental conditions in which he lives and the work that dots his daily life. Therefore, it is closer to the wild animal domesticated by the tribal peoples in a logic of labor collaboration than to a real pet overflowing with affection for its master. Intelligent, brave, but always on guard, so sometimes it may seem distant.

This does not prevent this dog from being gentle and affectionate with his family, or express a friendly curiosity towards strangers your family welcomes. But moderation remains the key word for him.. The Canadian Eskimo rarely celebrates his master, although he does not hesitate to ask for a caress as a sign of recognition. As a pack dog, is fiercely loyal to his master, al que considera el líder del clan, and is less distant with it. Cuidado con quien muestre signos de animosidad hacia este líder: the Canadian Eskimo it will quickly remind you of the meaning of the word respect, with many grunts.

The herds of Canadian Eskimo have a reputation for being very organized. From time to time some fights and scratches may occur, pero no es un signo de lucha seria o de rebelión contra el líder establecido.

It also, unlike many recent dog breeds, the Canadian Eskimo has retained a very sharp hunting instinct. El más mínimo estímulo, either the food, the start of a game or a fight, gives rise to a quick and very enthusiastic response by this dog. In fact, this dog is more suitable for a family of adults and should never be left with children, ya que esto podría provocar lesiones involuntarias. You can live with dogs that do not belong to your herd, but with some reservations, since he tends to regard any animal smaller than him as a prey to devour rather than as a companion with whom to live. The cats, rodents and small dogs will be tested if they have to cohabit with it.

Last, as an outdoor dog par excellence, que aprecia las temperaturas frías y prefiere dormir al aire libre si se le da la oportunidad, the Canadian Eskimo is not at all a breed of dog adapted to a floor. Necesitan pasar muchas horas al aire libre cada día para mantener su forma física y mental. Sporty and hyperactive dog, used to pulling sleds, the ideal for him is to have a master as tough as him. In other words, it is a perfect companion for those who want to practice cani-rando, cani-mountain biking, ski jöering, canikart… Sin una actividad física a la altura de sus capacidades, becomes a destructive and/or aggressive dog.

Last, being a very intelligent dog, is the king of escapes and mischief. There is no delicate plant or reinforced fence that resists it. If you have decided to be a runaway dog, será muy difícil detenerlo.

Health

The Canadian Eskimo tiene unas excelentes disposiciones físicas que lo hacen resistente a muchas de las enfermedades genéticas que suelen darse en perros de razas similares.

However, although they are a force of nature in their natural environment, are more susceptible to parasites and skin diseases that develop in warmer temperatures. Thus, it's important not to forget dog vaccine reminders, and give regular preventive treatment against ticks and fleas.

It also, like many Nordic dogs, has predisposition to the following diseases:

– Hip Dysplasia
– waterfalls
– Arthritis;
Torsión gástrica;
– entropion.

Life expectancy
