The Samoyed is not a loner. He really likes to be part of the family activities, according to Michele Welton on Your Pure Bred Puppy. They are very people-oriented. Samoyed is named after the Samoyede tribe, who found their way to the cold climate region in Europe. The Samoyed live in the same space with their people, often sleeping on top of them to keep them warm. So they are very accustomed to people companionship.
Characteristics of Samoyeds
If Samoyeds don’t get enough companionship from us, he can do something destructive like chewing on our furniture or barking. And their bark has a high pitch sound that can annoy the neighbors. So do not leave them out in the yard unsupervised.
Originally, Samoyeds were bred to be hunting dogs. So if you are taking your Samoyed outside for a walk, it’s a good idea to have him on a leash in case he sees some small animals that he perceives as prey.
And if you are thinking about getting a Samoyed, just know that they shed. A lot! Be prepared to find hair all over your house, your clothes, furniture, even your food. Vacuuming daily will become part of your routine. Just know that Samoyed hair will become a part of your life. And their coat needs a lot of brushing and combing if you don’t want to see it all matted up. Even with all these possible inconvenience, Samoyed is a gentle dog who is affectionate with his family.
