Overview
The exact origin of this breed is unknown, although it is widely believed this companion dog originated in the United States by German immigrants in the 20th century. A Member of the Spitz family, the American Eskimo Dog comes in three different varieties: toy, miniature, and standard. They became extremely popular in the 1930's and 1940's as a circus performer.
Character
Commonly referred to as the Eskie, this breed is compact and strong. A Nordic type dog, they are exceedingly agile and alert. They are considered to be one of the most intelligent of all dog breeds. The American Eskimo Dog is well balanced, hardy, and known for their longevity. This versatile breed possesses outstanding working skills, and makes a lovely companion.
Temperament
Bred solely to be companions, the American Eskimo Dog thrives on being part of the family. This charming and playful breed is excellent with children, and loves to be lavished with attention. They are suspicious and wary of strangers and make good guardians of their family and home. They love to bark and will sound the alarm whenever they deem it necessary. This breed does not do well if left alone for extended periods of time or if they are isolated, as they will engage in destructive activities.
Care
This breed requires firm bristle brushing twice weekly to prevent tangles and mats. Daily brushing may be necessary when they are shedding. They have drier skin than most other breeds; so bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. The American Eskimo Dog is prone to hip dysplasia, cataracts, and progressive retinal atrophy.
Coat
The American Eskimo Dog has a glorious standoff double-coat. The under coat is dense with a longer coat of guard hair that grows through to form the outer coat. The outer coat is straight with no wave or curl. There is a profuse ruff around the neck. The backs of the front and rear legs are well feathered. The coat color is white, or white with cream or biscuit markings. This breed is an average shedder that "blows" their coat twice a year.
Training
The American Eskimo Dog is easy to train and eager to please. This breed is highly talented in obedience trials. It is crucial they have early socialization to prevent aggression later in life. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, consistency, and positive reinforcement. The American Eskimo Dog is quite gifted in guarding, performing tricks, competitive obedience, agility, and narcotics detection.
Activity
This breed must have regular daily exercise. They enjoy securely leashed walks or playing in an enclosed yard. The American Eskimo Dog is active indoors and has a busy nature. They benefit immensely from family play sessions. They will do okay in an apartment provided they are sufficiently exercised and paid attention to.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of American Eskimo Dog puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

The best thing to do is to take your dog back to the vet. It could be as simple as her having something like a hair or blade of grass caught in her throat, to something more serious, to nothing at all. Sometimes dogs will gag is they drink too much water and sort of cough it back up. But a vet check is always the best way to start ruling out what it could be.

First off: Your puppy is too young to have left it's mother. Please, for the sake of the puppy and yourself, contact a positive reinforcement trainer as soon as possible. You are going to have a lot of work on your hands. As for food, the best food to get your puppy is a high quality grain-free puppy food. Your local pet store will have several brands for you to choose from.

After loving a dozen Eskies, they have taught me that they are kids, too. They treat everyone in the household as they would themselves, as a loving member of the home.

If you socialize them well, they can be. However, I have known otherwise very intelligent and friendly Eskies who are VERY uncomfortable with children, and bite them if they come too close.

The price depends on if the Eskie is from a shelter or from a breeder, usually shelters are cheaper, but breeders can be the same price.Eskies can cost a few hundred $$$ or sometimes over $1,000! But it will be worth it! from, vet2b

It depends, some Eskies have champion bloodlines, those usually cost more. Usually, shelters are the cheapest place to get Eskies, but breeders can be expensive but they can be as cheap as shelters. On average, Eskies are around a few hundred $$$ to over $1,000. From, vet2b

Eskimo dog size?????? Can anyone tell me why American Eskimo dog come in 3 different size?

1 Comment

Anonymous

Eskies come in 3 size so owners can have different sized dogs that fits their life style. How they smaller Eskies is the breed an Eskie than they breed the smallest Eskie, than they breed that Eskie's smallest pup. That causes a smaller breed of Eskie! The sizes are Toy: 9-12" 6-10lbs. Miniature:12-15" 11-20 lbs. Standard:15-19" 20-40lbs. From, vet2b!

One of my male Eskies does this repetitive chewing of his forelimbs. Vet said this is how he calms himself down, like a pacifier. Sometimes, the chewing causing stains on his fur, so I wash him. If we give him some treat to chew, it averts his "nervous chewing."

shaking and she hasn't barked since we got her Why do they shake so much. And do they always breathe so fast? Seems like she pants a lot too. She hasn't pooped since we had her (2 days). She is drinking fine and already is doing well in potty training but doesn't eat much.

PLEASE RESEARCH THE SHAVING OPTION. You need to use 100 SPF on exposed skin as they are prone to blister and skin cancer. They have NO pigment under that fur. Also, my vet says the coat actually keeps them cool counter to what intuition might expect. Mine eats ice cubes, which lowers her core temp. She LOVES them and often prefers them over a cookie. Also, the vet says it helps scrape tartar. Good luck.

No, they will not get mean. I have an eskie and he is 10. Their life expectancy is between 13 and 17 years old.

Eskies are truly intelligent, honorable and devoted companions. Their personality stays with them until they pass. It is a blessing that these amazing animals live longer than almost any other canine breed, because it is a heartache when your beloved companion leaves. I once met a man who had his Eskie for 17 plus years, and he was brought to tears by the sight of mine. He kept telling me that this beautiful Eskie in my arms is the best treasure.
