I've Been Thinking....



So, I've been thinking I'd like a dog. And I've decided on an American Eskimo. I knew from the start I wanted a type of sled dog. This one seems to be more of what I'm looking for than the others. They are beautiful. Of the reviews I've read they seem to be loving companion dogs and present strength and agility. Eskie's have a striking long, dense coat that needs to be regularly groomed. They do shed but can be maintained by consistent brushing. They seem to have a great temperament, are highly intelligent, trainable and independent. They do need stimulation and should be socialized as young as possible. They also make for great watchdogs-which would be great. They do, however, take longer to mature than most dogs. They act more like puppies for up to two years. I definitely foresee an Eskie in my home, in the near future.
