Medium-Sized Family Dog That Can Be Cuddled
The Eurasier is a modern breed of dog, bred only in the last century. Unlike most of its relatives, it was not bred to work, but to be a medium to the large family dog. Prior to that, there were mostly small companion dogs – Eurasiers were supposed to close this gap in dog breeds. The genes for the Samoyed, a medium-sized Scandinavian dog breed, were added to the Chow Chow and Wolfspitz parent breeds in the 1970s. The Eurasier was born and recognized as a breed by the International Cynological Federation (FCI)! The friendly and lovable dog continues to win the hearts of families to this day.
Nature of the Eurasier
If you want to describe Eurasier in one word, “balance” is the best fit. His character is confident, but at the same time calm and balanced. He has a high threshold and is not easily angered. This trait is an invaluable asset in an active family business. Despite his inner calmness, the responsive Spitz is definitely not a bore! He is smart, alert, and obedient. He looked critically at strangers and restrained himself. This breed of dog is not characterized by either a tendency to aggression or a hunting instinct. The Eurasier has only one great passion: his people. He is affectionate and always happy for attention and affection. The Eurasian usually gets along well with other dogs.
Upbringing & Attitude
The strong temperamental ancestors of the Eurasier suggest that a loving family dog would like to be raised with respect and constancy. He loves his people and is always ready to do something with them and for them. However, it can happen that he questions commands and makes his own decisions. With calm, consistent guidance, the furry companion is easy to train. Daily exercise, the Eurasier demonstrates the balance characteristic of the breed. He loves classes but doesn’t necessarily demand them. Due to the high level of intelligence, the dog requires a lot of variety – routine exercises quickly tire him. On the other hand, submission and skill games are exciting and meaningful activities for him.
The Eurasier has relatively high grooming requirements because they do need to be combed regularly, several times a week. If this is not done, knots form in the coat, which can only be removed painfully. Despite regular grooming, a curly dog will leave hair all over the house. You should also be aware of this if you plan on getting a Eurasier.
Characteristics & Health
This young breed has until now been considered extremely strong. Frequent diseases of the breed are unknown. As Eurasiers become more and more popular, there are many mixed breeds and “cheap” puppies on the market. Therefore, it is highly recommended to choose a reliable breeder.
