5 Dog Breeds Built for Winter



Samoyed dog

The Samoyed dog breed is known for taking part in both Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. The Samoyed breed was originally used for herding reindeer and hauling sledges for the Siberian Samoyede people. They are clothed in white fur and always have a warm and ready grin.

This breed is known for being gentle and outgoing and adores his family, even cats if he’s raised with them.  You’ll want to reinforce training with your Samoyed because he can be a bit stubborn at times.

He’s affectionate, child friendly and is a great watchdog.  He will need to be brushed often because he sheds heavily.
