Get to know the East Siberian Laika
All you need to know about the breed
With their resplendent double coat and eager, sharp regard, the East Siberian Laika is every inch a cold weather working dog with high intelligence and energy to match. That’s not to say they can’t thrive in summer temperatures – the Siberian tundra gets hotter than hot in summer months – but their plush fur was made to withstand extreme lows.
Calm and quite even-tempered with their humans, East Siberian Laikas make for good companions, and can be trained as watchdogs. You will need to make sure they understand who’s the boss during training sessions – and that it’s you.
While naturally protective of their human family, as a breed originally created to hunt, East Siberian Laikas still exhibit an alpha aggression toward larger animal predators. So while they need a fair amount of exercise every day – this breed definitely needs an active owner! - it is suggested that you keep your East Siberian Laika on leash while running around to make sure they, and other animals, stay safe and sound.
