Understanding American Eskimo Dogs

1. Stubbornness


American Eskimo dogs are known for being stubborn, unable to handle challenges during training sessions. When they are not interested or do not see the point of an exercise, they may even refuse to cooperate. It is important to train with a positive attitude and perseverance to overcome their stubborn tendencies.

2. Tendency to bark

These dogs make excellent watchdogs, and while this can be a positive trait, it can also lead to excessive barking. Training them to control their barking and distinguish between proper alerts and unnecessary noise is very important for a harmonious life with your neighbors.

3. Distraction

American Eskimo dogs have a very curious nature, which means they can easily become distracted during training. It is also essential to conduct training sessions in a quiet environment and gradually introduce distractions to build their focus and concentration.
