Expertise

Housebreaking, feeding, training PLEASE DON'T SEND ME MEDICAL OR BREEDING QUESTIONS. An internet forum is not the appropriate place for them. Even if I could tell what was wrong from a handful of symptoms, you would still need to get the medications from your local vet. Breeding should be left to those not needing to ask simple, basic questions. Books have been written about it. Rather than ask me a question, start reading. Those unwilling to do the work it takes to produce quality puppies should spay/neuter their pets at 6 months. I will not answer questions that sound like a poorly prepared breeder.

Experience in the area

Since nobody with Eskimo experience has signed up, I will do my best using my general knowledge of dogs. I have experience and training through my volunteer work with a large dog guide school in modern, proven methods. The service dog schools have acquired a wealth of knowledge about raising well behaved, healthy dogs with long, active lives. They do not share it with the general public, but pass on the best of it to those like me that raise puppies for them. I am part of a group that has raised dogs for 6 different service dog schools. We meet monthly and share information. Please don't send me medical or breeding questions. An internet forum is not the appropriate place for them. Even if I could tell what was wrong from a handful of symptoms, you would still need to get the medications from your local vet. Breeding should be left to those not needing to ask simple, basic questions. Books have been written about it. Rather than ask me a question, start reading.

There is very little solid information available to the public on how dogs do on different diets.  There are many strong opinions with little but anecdotes and speculation to back them up.  I know the

2009-10-05 feeding:

Maybe around 3 cups a day.  Your dog definitely should be narrower at the waist than the hips and chest. You should be able to easily feel the ribs, but not see them. Each dog is different.  Standard recommendations

2009-07-09 Toy american Eskimo:

Why spay/neuter, or why 6 months?    6 months has been the traditional time.  The puppies have most of their adult size and most of their growth.  The males' testicles are no longer hidden up inside.

2009-07-09 Toy american Eskimo:

How well a dog adapts to an apartment depends more on its individual personality than its breed.  Some will, and some won't.      Yes, barking could be a problem, but again, and individual thing.     

2009-06-17 adopting a new Eskie:

Usually if given good leadership, any 2 dogs will get along.  The key to most behavior problems is approaching things using the dog's natural instincts. Dogs see all the people and dogs in the household
