Samoyeds are an energetic breed with moderate to high exercise requirements. Meeting their exercise needs is crucial to keep them happy and healthy. Here's a guide to their exercise requirements:
Daily Exercise: Samoyeds benefit from at least 30 to 60 minutes of exercise each day. This can be in the form of walks, playtime, or other activities.
Playtime: They love interactive play, so engage in games like fetch, frisbee, or tug-of-war to help burn off their energy and strengthen your bond.
Mental Stimulation: Samoyeds are intelligent dogs, and mental exercise is just as important as physical activity. Puzzle toys, obedience training, and teaching new tricks can keep their minds engaged.
Socialization: Allow them to interact with other dogs through playdates or visits to dog parks. Socialization helps them develop proper behavior and social skills.
Hiking and Outdoor Activities: Samoyeds are well-suited for more adventurous activities like hiking, camping, or even pulling a cart. They enjoy being outdoors and exploring new environments.
Winter Play: Due to their Arctic heritage, Samoyeds often love playing in the snow. If you live in a snowy area, they'll likely thrive in winter activities like sledding or snowshoeing.
Variety: Keep their exercise routine diverse to prevent boredom. Changing up activities and environments can keep them engaged and happy.
Monitoring Weather: Be mindful of extreme temperatures, as their thick double coat can make them susceptible to heat exhaustion in hot weather. On hot days, exercise them during cooler times.
Remember that individual Samoyeds may have varying exercise preferences and energy levels. Some may require more exercise than others, so it's essential to pay attention to your dog's cues and adjust their exercise routine accordingly. Providing both physical and mental stimulation is key to a happy and well-behaved Samoyed.
The Samoyed has double coated fur and sheds its undercoat.
Here are some grooming requirements and recommendations for Samoyed:
Brushing: We recommend brushing your dog with a deshedding comb at least 1 times a week to remove undercoat and minimise shedding.
Bathing: Due to Singapore's humid weather, shower every week is recommended to prevent smell and skin infection. Use a mild dog shampoo (we recommend Silky shampoo) and be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid any skin irritation. Lastly, remember to blow dry to make sure the skin is completely dry to prevent skin issues.
Trimming: They also require occasional trimming or clipping, particularly around the pads and between the toes to prevent overgrowth and tangles and maintain a tidy appearance. Bring your dog to a professional dog groomer every 3 months for a full grooming service to get the best result.
Nail Clipping: The frequency of nail clipping depends on the surface where your dog mostly walk on. Otherwise clip your dog's nails once every 6-8 weeks are enough. But whenever you do, be sure to use a sharp, proper nail clipper and avoid cutting too close to the quick. Leave the cutting to the Professional dog groomer to avoid traumatizing the puppy if nails bleed during cutting (which is very common).
Teeth Cleaning: Regular teeth cleaning is important for your dog to prevent dental problems. Brush their teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and use a dog-specific toothpaste.
Ear Cleaning: We recommend you clean them with a gentle, dog-specific ear cleaner to prevent buildup of dirt and bacteria in the long run.
