We believe that American Eskimo Dogs are intelligent, loving, beautiful companions who need to be with their families as much as possible. These are not dogs that can be left to spend their lives out in the yard, though a fenced yard is important for good fun play, as is another dog buddy.
We believe in training using purely positive reinforcement and operant conditioning, i.e. clicker training. Eskies are wonderful dogs with active minds and great responsiveness
to training. Clicker training works well with them because it rewards them for using their brains and imagination, instead of punishing them for veering off course. Through clicker training, you and your dog will become partners working towards the same goals.

We believe in feeding a raw, natural diet -- the food dogs were designed to eat! We believe that a simple, grain-free, dairy-free diet is the way to help your dog enjoy a long, healthy life.
