She is a first time dog owner, and she has done her research months before getting her Samoyed, Nora. Then she moved to Chicago, and found out just how much Samoyeds bark. She shares some tips with those thinking about getting a Samoyed and living in an apartment in the city.
Samoyeds have a lot of energy. When Kat first got Nora, she had more time to spend at home, so Nora was happy. Then her schedule doesn’t permit that as much, and Nora starts to bark, sometimes for 30 minutes. Neighbors do not appreciate this, especially when Samoyeds have a high-pitch voice. Kat recommends researching dog parks before you lease an apartment. Fortunately, there are lots of dog owners in her apartment high-rise, and she has gotten to be friends with them. So when she can’t take Nora out for walks, she arranges playdates for Nora and other dogs in the apartment complex. Samoyeds were born to be working dogs, so they do need outlet for their energy.
