The Samoyed, or Samoiedskaya Sobaka, is probably the cutest doggo in the world. We don’t know what it is, the white, fluffy fur, the adorable smile, the button black eyes, or the puffy tail, Samoyed’s are just like fairytale dogs, as cute as they come. They were first bred by reindeer herders in Siberia to help with the herding and pulling sleds, and they got their name after the Samoyedic people who live in the icy Siberia.
Flyball is one of the dog sports that Samoyeds excel at due to their nature and love for sporty activities. The competitive game includes dogs racing against each other to the finish line, jumping over hurdles and capturing the tennis ball. It is usually run in teams of four, although you can do that only with your doggo as a fun activity for the weekend. However, if you want your baby to compete, you’ll be happy to hear that there are numerous teams and associations all over the world that can help you train your dog and make them a champion.
Since Samoyeds were bred in Siberia, it is no wonder that they absolutely love the snow. When the temperature falls below zero, your dog cannot be happier, and when you think the snow will devour the whole planet, your pup is actually in heaven. Samoyeds love mushing, and they love to exercise their muscles by pulling something, so this activity can be perfect in the super snowy weather when you just want to have fun, or go to the store with your doggo.
Skijoring is similar to a mush game in many ways, however, instead of sleds, you would use skis. Skijoring basically means “ski driving” and it is a popular sport in the Scandinavian region, especially suitable for doggos such as Samoyeds. As mentioned before, Samoyeds are winter dogs, and they absolutely adore any activity that includes pulling and snow. Including your pup in your skijoring activity is a great way to bond with them, as well as to get some exercise in the cold weather that usually forces you to stay indoors and longingly look outside the window waiting for the snow to melt.
Train your doggo’s mind by playing a cup game! Hide a treat under a cup, put two others beside it and shuffle them. Then, let your dog guess where the treat is.
Have some peanut butter fun with the Kong! Your pup will love this toy, and it is a great way to keep them busy when it’s raining and you don’t want that pretty white fur to get dirty!
Samoyeds are adorable and faithful companions that are blessing the world with their charming smile every day. This doggo loves the snow and loves cold weather, and most of all, loves to be active, so don’t be afraid to hit the slopes with them or take super long walks in the snow. Your pup will thank you and reward you with their love and devotion!
