Exercise Requirements Of The Samoyed Breed

Samoyed’s are a breed with a history of requiring strenuous physical activity, the dog is a working breed which was bred to do such tasks as herd reindeer and pull sleds in harsh, bitterly cold temperatures. The Samoyed has some very specific requirements for exercise that need to be met if he or she is to adapt well and be truly happy. The requirements do not mean an owner must purchase a big sled and move to the North Pole, but if you want your dog to get the necessary exercise, it means you need to become educated and knowledgeable about the needs of the breed.

When the dog is in puppyhood, it can be less resilient than other breeds of around the same age. When they are a puppy, the dog’s muscles and skeleton are not completely developed and the dog will not be able to perform any type of heavy work. The exercise the dog gets when a puppy comes from playing, learning and exploring with its littermates. The Samoyed as a pup has an open-minded temperament which means it is a great time to take advantage of some obedience training. An owner will find that a Samoyed puppy is much easier to train in contrast to a full grown dog. Obedience training will help the dog get some exercise in a way that is perfectly suited to its developmental stage; training should be neither too lax nor too rigorous.

Once the dog has reached the midway maturity point at approximately 6 months of age, an owner can begin involving the dog in more difficult and challenging obedience training courses that involve a high level of physical activity. The dog will be able to run and maneuver through an obstacle course. Additionally, by the time a Samoyed is resilient enough to withstand being taken on a daily walk, it is extremely important to keep the dog tethered on a lead at all times.

When the Samoyed reaches adulthood, the dog needs to receive a moderate amount of strenuous exercise for a minimum of one hour per day. With the dog having an amicable personality, it means you can also get them to adapt to a variety of activities and provide them with the exercise needed. An example would be if you were biking or hiking, you can bring the dog along with you and they will completely enjoy participating.

If you live in a climate that experiences snow, you may even want to allow the Samoyed to participate in sled pulling. If you have youngsters, this can be a very enjoyable activity which can be engaging for the entire family, like any exercise that combines fun and family bonding, your dog is sure to love it immensely.

It is important to remember that a Samoyed requires an owner to begin with a small foundation for learning and to gradually build to more impressive activities for which the breed is known. With time and patience, your Samoyed will adapt well to your family and provide years of love and companionship.
