|The American Eskimo
The American Eskimo is a truly outstanding breed, and is second to none in intelligence and spirit. We owned our first American Eskimo since 1969 and have been breeding and showing these wonderful dogs since 1980. We take pride in offering puppies and dogs whose backgrounds are known and have been extensively researched through several generations of Champion/Grand Champion pedigrees. Our lines have proven their excellence in the UKC and AKC show rings.
Please keep in mind that perfection in conformation, or a solid Champion background does not guarantee an ideal pet. The personality of a conformation Show Dog can be a difficult challenge for a first time family to adapt to. In the Conformation Show Ring, the "attitude" of the dog is very significant. Dogs that perform the best in the Conformation Ring have attitudes that are very curious (always wanting to know what is going on), very energetic (they like to be in perpetual motion,) and constantly demand to be the center of attention (they will create a scene to draw attention to themselves!) Fortunately, nature provides a variety of attitudes in each litter, and even though puppies have correct conformation, all of them do not need to become conformation show dogs.
We have first hand knowledge of 6 to 10 generations of the dogs ancestors in our breeding program. These bloodlines have well known dogs in the pedigree. The selective breeding process allows us to combine proven dispositions and physical characteristics that produce a well rounded, socially adaptable puppy/dog with an intuitively pleasing personality.
The "total dog" concept is the most important aspect in breeding. Each dog is a unique being. The traits of the ancestors create a pool of genes from which pairs are drawn in lottery fashion. The higher the occurrence of common/favorable genes, the more predictable the outcome will be.
We coined the phrase "Teddy Bear Type" in the 1980's. Our puppies and dogs resemble a cross between polar bears and lovable stuffed Teddy Bears. We use the principles of selective breeding (stacking the deck with the desired traits) to breed towards heavy coat, a longer than average coat, adequate heavy bone (as in the true ancestral type,) strong black points, a bear-like muzzle shape (wedge shaped) which minimizes tear stains, solid proportion with exceptional balance and movement, (single-tracking, angulation, drive) overall cleanliness, outgoing, loving disposition, keen wit and intelligence. Our foundation dogs were OFA certified clear of hip dysplasia. The OFA stands for the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals.
The Standard American Eskimo type is known as the Spitz type in Europe, which dates back to at least 5,000 B.C. , and has remained relatively unchanged from the ancestral prototype. The Eskie is predominantly healthy, relatively free of inherited disorders and problems. Our breeding program reinforces our dedication to produce excellence in beauty and companionship.
Utilizing genetic principles (and a bachelor's degree in Genetics) sound, desirable traits are intensified through selective linebreeding. The achievement of breeding the "Teddy Bear Type" was a difficult undertaking because most of the basic physical characteristics are recessive and are only brought forward consistently by stacking the genetic deck with the desired traits and by using carefully planned linebreeding. Over successive generations, the occurrence of less desirable physical characteristics and behavioral traits can only be reduced to a low percentage. It is almost impossible to completely eliminate undesirable traits because of the complexity of the inheritance process because the underlying genetic composition is masked by the phenotype - which is what is visible and apparent.
Our Breeding Principles:
Our dogs are happy and have attuned themselves to our breeding goals and breeding program. They spend their days romping and playing in a sound, loving, family environment that occupies several beautiful acres of woods and rolling hills. We have large fenced grassy and wooded areas where the dogs spend most of the day in small groups for play and companionship. We have maternity wards/ nurseries in our home with private fenced areas for mom and pups, and a doggy door to start outdoor to acclimate them to start potty training as early as 5 weeks.
The ancestry of our dogs has been personally and physically researched for 4 to 9 generations to minimize health anomalies. Some of our offspring represents 6 generations of our breeding. We strive for overall quality in type, temperament and balance. We have achieved an extremely high level of consistency in all of our litters.
Our breeding program has finished and produced over 100 conformation and obedience titles in both UKC and AKC! One of our puppies (Angela) was registered with the FCI as a German Spitz and earned almost 10 championship titles in that registry and placed consistently in the FCI Top 10 dogs for many years.
Our puppies have excelled and earned titles and praise in Conformation, Obedience, Agility, and even Flyball! Many of the puppies we have produced have become registered Therapy Dogs and bring healing to those they come in contact with.
