The Canadian Eskimo Dog’s temperament reflects its original work and environment. It is loyal, tough, brave, intelligent, and alert.  It is affectionate and gentle, and develops a deep bond with its owner and is intensely loyal. When used as sled dogs, they were often required to forage and hunt for their own food. Consequently, many Canadian Eskimo Dogs have stronger prey drive than some other breeds. Owing to their original environment, they take pure delight in cold weather, often preferring to sleep outside in cold climates. Like most spitz breeds they can be very vocal; the breed does not adapt well to temperate climates.

When looking for a puppy to purchase it is highly recommended to contact any of the Breed Clubs we have listed for this breed since it is they who should be able to put you in touch with members who have bred litters according to their Club’s Code of Ethics.

BUYER BEWARE;  Some breeders listed here may not be Members of a Canadian Eskimo Dog Breed Club, there may be good reasons for this, but ask the question before you enter into any transaction.
