Samoyeds are often considered to be a hypoallergenic breed due to the fact they dont have as much dander, BUT THEY STILL DO SHED. And they can shed A LOT! People with allergies can still have reactions to samoyeds, but they may be less severe compared to other breeds.
Samoyeds have a thick double coat that requires regular grooming to keep it clean and free of allergens such as dander. They shed moderately throughout the year and heavily twice a year during seasonal coat blows (usually fall and spring). Regular brushing can help remove loose hair and reduce the amount of allergens in the environment.
While samoyeds produce fewer allergens compared to some other breeds, individuals with allergies should spend time with a samoyed before bringing one into their home to see if they have any allergic reactions.
Sammies do need regular grooming, but to be honest I only bath mine twice or so a year! Their coat has a "self cleaning" ability where dirt litterally falls off it, even after they take a mud bath! Very rarely do they ever have a "dog smell". Most people even say that even when they are wet they don't smell like a "wet dog" but more like wet wool! I have totally found this to be true!
Samoyeds are an ancient breed originating from the region known as Siberia, which spans across parts of modern-day Russia, including the Siberian Arctic. They are named after the Samoyedic people, a nomadic reindeer herding tribe that inhabited these areas for centuries. The Samoyedic people used the dogs for various purposes, including herding reindeer, pulling sleds, and providing companionship. They were trained to keep people and children warm by sleeping on them at night! They were litterally bred to be the first house dog!
Samoyeds were highly valued by the Samoyedic people and were considered an integral part of their daily lives. The breed's primary role was to assist with herding and transportation in the harsh Arctic conditions. Over time, the Samoyed dogs gained recognition beyond their native region and became popular among explorers and traders who encountered them during their travels.
In the late 19th century, the first Samoyeds were brought to England, where they captured the attention of dog enthusiasts. The breed gained popularity and eventually spread
Yes! Sammies smile! Because of their amazing personalities that they are just so happy all the time! Well.... maybe that's not why, but that's why I like to think so. But in reality they have natural upturned corners of the mouth, which makes them look like they are always smiling. This smile is an adaptation to harsh, cold weather in Siberia. It prevents excessive drooling so that no icicles would form on the Samoyed's face.
In my mind, Sammies are the BEST breed around, but they do have some facts as well. Let me start out with what's amazing about them and then the not so amazing things.
Samoyeds are incredibly friendly dogs. They have a gentle and affectionate nature, making them excellent companions for families, children, and other pets.
Samoyeds have a playful and exuberant personality. They love to play and engage in activities with their owners, whether it's a game of fetch, a hike, or simply running around in the backyard.
Excellent Family Dogs: Samoyeds thrive in a family environment. They enjoy being around their loved ones and are known for their loyalty and devotion to their human companions. They make excellent family dogs and are known to form strong bonds with their owners. Samoyeds are known for their exceptional tolerance and patience with children. They are gentle giants and usually love younger family members, making them a fantastic choice for families with kids.
Beautiful Appearance: Samoyeds are famous for their stunning appearance. They have a thick double coat that is white or cream in color, which gives them a majestic and fluffy appearance. Their smiling face and dark, expressive eyes add to their charm.
Good Temperament: Samoyeds generally have a pleasant and outgoing temperament. They are typically friendly towards strangers, making them poor guard dogs but great for socializing and welcoming guests into your home.
Versatile Working Dogs: Historically, Samoyeds were bred as working dogs by the Samoyede people of Siberia. They were used for herding reindeer, pulling sleds, and keeping their owners warm during the harsh winters. Today, while many Samoyeds are primarily kept as companion animals, they still retain their working instincts and can excel in various dog sports and activities.
Low Prey Drive: Samoyeds usually have a low prey drive, meaning they are less likely to chase after small animals such as squirrels or cats. This makes them more manageable in multi-pet households or in areas with other animals. However, each dog is an individual, but my dogs are raised around cats and chickens and do well with them.
Joyful and Happy Disposition: Samoyeds have a naturally happy and cheerful disposition. They are often described as "smiling" dogs due to the upturned corners of their mouths. Their positive attitude and zest for life can bring joy to any household.
Now the not so good things about samoyeds.
High Exercise Needs: Samoyeds are an active and energetic breed that requires regular exercise to keep them physically and mentally stimulated. If their exercise needs are not met, they can become bored, restless, and potentially develop behavioral problems. Owners should be prepared to provide daily exercise and engage in activities that challenge their Samoyed's body and mind.
Heavy Shedding: Samoyeds have a thick double coat that keeps them well-insulated in cold climates. However, this coat sheds heavily, especially during shedding seasons (spring/fall). Regular brushing is necessary to manage the shedding, and expect to find fur on furniture, clothes, and throughout the house.
Grooming Requirements: Along with shedding, Samoyeds require regular grooming to maintain their coat's health and appearance. Their thick fur can become tangled and matted if not properly cared for. Regular brushing is necessary to keep their coat clean and free from mats.
Independence and Stubbornness: Samoyeds are intelligent dogs, but they can also have an independent streak and stubbornness. This can make training a bit challenging at times, requiring consistent and patient handling. Early socialization and obedience training are crucial to establish boundaries and ensure they grow up to be well-behaved dogs.
Separation Anxiety: Samoyeds form strong bonds with their owners and thrive on companionship. They can be prone to separation anxiety when left alone for extended periods. They may exhibit behaviors such as excessive barking and destructive chewing. It's important to gradually acclimate them to alone time and provide mental stimulation to alleviate separation anxiety.
Not Suitable for Hot Climates: Samoyeds have a thick coat that insulates them from the cold. As a result, they can struggle in hot and humid climates. They are more prone to heat exhaustion and heatstroke, so extra precautions need to be taken to keep them cool and hydrated during warm weather.
