Training &Temperament

Due to their working heritage, they may chase things, run and bark, so it's best to channel that energy into some kind of job or activity. Otherwise, these independent thinkers may invent ways to keep themselves entertained. At the very least, daily exercise is necessary. Provide your Sammy with a safe environment, a crate at night in the house, and a fenced yard where he can play and exercise. This breed will not stay on your back porch. He will roam for miles on end! If you don't have a fence, then be prepared to walk your dog on a leash, for his own safety and for your peace of mind.

Queen Alexandra was an ardent Samoyed fancier, and descendants of her dogs appear in many English and American kennels today.

Named for the Samoyed people, primitives of the family of Sayantsi, described as a race in the "transition stages between the Mongol pure and the Finn." The Samoyeds comprised a nomadic tribe that traveled from Iran to the vast stretches of tundra reaching from the White Sea to the Yenisei River.

The Samoyed has been used for generations as a constant companion dog and guard for reindeer.

Samoyeds accompanied Roald Amundsen in his successful landmark reach of the South Pole in 1911.
