Samoyed puppies are the most adorable fluff-balls you will ever see. Their cuteness and always smiling faces makes them easy to fall in love with.
Samoyeds are not an easy breed to own - they have a desire to just keep on going, and daily walks will not be enough. They make an ideal partner for outdoor sports, and will even happily pull you along on a bike or wagon.
They are very independent dogs and like to go their own way at times, investigating the environment without caring too much where their owners are.
Samoyeds make good watchdogs and will alert you of danger through barking or a wolf-like howling sound. They seem to always want to have the last word and are quite head-strong. That doesn't go well with being told what to do...if you want them to do something, you are better off making them think it was their idea.
If you can't satisfy your Samoyed's desire to be active and to work, they will start using your garden as their new play area - and the result won't be pretty. Once this breed sets their mind on something, there is no stopping them.
Their coat requires regular brushing in order not to get matted. It is important to not cut their fur off as it acts as a form of protection against the heat and cold.
