Samoyeds - dogs that always smile WikiPet.ru
First unforgettable meeting with Samoyeds
I will remember an extraordinary sight for my whole life: at the source of the Moscow River a minivan stops, and five magnificent snow-white dogs pop out of the trunk. The owner brought them for a walk in the forest.
After I began to read about the breed. I really liked that these dogs are so white, fluffy, big. And they always smile - that is how their faces are physiologically arranged.
Making a Samoyed was a deliberate, deliberate decision. And before that we had dogs - shepherd dogs, rottweiler. As a child, she dragged into the house all homeless purebred and outbred dogs.
Nordica was found by ad. We arrived at the breeders, and our dog ran up to us, licked his hands. He was so funny, like a little teddy bear. Not falling in love with him was impossible.
I decided to get a dog for the sake of my daughter. She is a homebody, I really wanted to leave home more often, walk more.
Nord was immediately accustomed to the diaper. After a period of quarantine, they immediately began to accustom to the street. We walk with him three times a day. In the morning, the walk lasts about 40 minutes, in the afternoon the daughter walks with him for an hour and a half. And in the evening we leave for an hour or two (depending on the weather).
My lifestyle with the advent of the dog has not changed much. I have everything on the run. But the daughter began to move more, walk. And I'm glad about that.
Samoyeds are said to be difficult to educate.
When Nordic was small, we turned to a dog handler. He then said: Samoyeds are not trained. We did not see much desire from a specialist to deal with our dog. Therefore, they did not insist on lessons.
We ourselves, too, were not particularly engaged in training. If you firmly say “Near!”, He, of course, will come up and sit down. But without much pleasure.
Knows the "Stand!" and "Wash!".
From friends we learned about the course of humane training of trainer Tatyana Romanova, we want to sign up - try it.
In general, Nordic is very touchy. If you pull the leash strongly or scold it for something, it will take offense. Leaves, lies in its place, turns to the wall. And until morning, call him do not call, will not come. And in the morning it is not visible that he was offended.
It is recommended that after scolding the dog, ignore her for 20 minutes, and then to suspect, regret, pet. Our Nord does not come in an hour. Offended for being raised.
Features of the nature of Samoyeds
Samoyeds - dogs are independent, non-fussy, kind and at the same time playful. But they are not guards at all.
This is an active dog: likes to run and jump a lot on the street. She loves when he is stroked, scratched. Can not do without attention and affection.
Samoyed is a fairly clean dog. For all the time, only one of my sandals was nibbled. When he was small, he didn’t bite, but licked furniture legs.
True, we had a problem. When we moved to a new apartment, methyl territory. But then he got used to it, calmed down, realized that he was even better there: more space and a forest nearby.
How difficult is it to look after the hair of a Samoyed husky
Samoyeds have voluminous wool. But caring for her is actually simple. The dog sheds only in the summer, in the heat. Of course, you need to scratch. We scratch once a week. And many, I know, every day. Samoyeds are very fluffy. We collect wool. Let's fool around - now things are in fashion.
After a walk, wash my paws and stomach. But I think that the owners of all dogs, not only Samoyeds, do this.
Features nutrition Samoyeds
Samoyeds do not eat much. Nord loves cottage cheese with sour cream, milk (but he can not). Nordic is allergic to chicken. We have it on a mixed diet: one feed, the second - "natural". We feed him beef.
Samoyeds cannot stand loneliness
Even before we started Nordic, we read: Samoyeds do not tolerate loneliness. Therefore, simultaneously with the puppy they took a kitten, a Scottish fold. Of course, they do not walk in an embrace and do not sleep together, but they are friends. Nord worries when the cat is sick. The cat is more independent. But in truth, we love the dog more.And Nord gets more attention. The cat is offended, and I feel sorry for him. But if you pick up a cat in your arms, Nord is jealous, pushes his nose. Then he will surely squeeze a comrade somewhere, take revenge.
They play together. It is interesting to see how the cat clings to the coat of Nord, and they rush together around the house. They no longer turn the apartment over, but were mischievous in childhood. The cat jumped on furniture, on cabinets and threw everything from there, and the dog footballed things from below. Therefore, we do not have beautiful souvenirs and other cute trinkets anywhere.
The attitude of Samoyeds to children
Nord is indifferent to children. This is definitely not a dog for young children. He pretends not to notice them. No matter how the kids call him, he turns around and leaves. And so everyone is friendly. Never growled at anyone, did not grin, did not bite. You can even fix the bowl when Nordic eats. The dog only wags its tail.
Fights with males for attention ladies
Nord - a real gentleman, and fights for the attention of the ladies. And with males, the same as him, in height or even more. So recently I had a fight with a husky. But we already know with whom in the region of Nordic conflicts. We try not to come. And when hassles - we separate.
He loves girls and does not offend small dogs. They bark at him, and Nord is so surprised: "What kind of trifle is such a yapping here?"
What I would like to change in the behavior of the Samoyed
Nord on the street pulls a leash. The command "Next!" does not want to perform. We walk mostly without a leash. But he is standing in front of the road, waiting to be fastened. When we leave the forest belt, it is also waiting. If you quarrel with him on the road, you pull the leash a little harder or you shout, he will run back and walk on his own. Then he turns around and looks where you are. Resentment does not last long: we return home - everything is forgotten.
What funny things happened to Nord
Nord in itself is very funny. We laugh with him all the time. Our Samoyed is unconditional love. Come home - he is always happy and "smiles" to you. The later came, the more happy.
Sometimes we make funny videos about their games with a cat.
One summer we went to the lake. Nordic really likes such trips - there is expanse for him. And then he heard the frogs croaking. At first I didn’t understand who it was. Then he rushed to the water, ran along the pantone, and that one suddenly ended. Nord did not have time to brake and plopped down into the water. He did not expect, scared scared. My daughter and I pulled him out a little. Our Samoyed is not waterfowl! I know that others swim well, with pleasure.
Little, we did not take Nord to any rivers. At home he knows the “Wash!” Command, because my paws constantly. He jumps into the shower stall, stands, waits for him to be washed. But if you pour water on top of the withers - resentment. Looks very unhappy at such moments. Then we blow dry for more than two hours. But the dry Samoyed cannot be taken out into the street. One evening, I washed Nordic and did not dry. By morning, he had not dried himself. After the walk, the dog fell ill with rheumatism.
What diseases are characteristic for Samoyed huskies?
Our dog is still young, good health. As I said above, faced with rheumatism due to the fact that the dog was not dried after washing.
Nord is also allergic to chicken: the coat turns yellow, and brown circles appear around the eyes. In such cases, you need to change the diet, whitening shampoos do not help.
Once Nord was bitten by a tick. He got it, and the dog was getting worse and worse. The veterinarian was called in time: prescribed treatment.
Which owner is suitable Samoyed like
Samoyeds are suitable for people who like to walk, lead an active lifestyle. This is like, she needs to move a lot.
This dog is a friend, companion. But not a guard or a hunter, although he can run after crows.
