First recognized by the F.C.I. in 1973 and 30 years later in October 2003 it was recognised here in the United Kingdom.
This breed was developed in Germany in the 1960’s with the crossing of three different breeds, these were the Wolfspitz (keeshond) the Chow-Chow and then finally the Samoyed to add fresh blood to the breeding program. This was the dream of one Julius Wipfel. His idea was to breed a medium/large breed Spitz type dog, with a calm and even temperament. A dog that would be part of a family, adaptable enough to adjust to life in town or country, a dog of not one set colour but a variety of colours and shades.
The Eurasier is very much a “Companion Dog’” and as such they are affectionate and intelligent. Although they thrive on constant contact with their families, they may often be reserved with strangers, but never showing any aggression towards them.
The Eurasier should always live as it was originally intended, in the home as part of the family joining in with all the families activities. This breed does not do well in a kennel situation. However, it is a hardy and robust breed, having been selectively bred from two European Nordic, and one Asian breed. Hence the first chosen name being Eurasian
The Eurasier, being an intelligent breed responds well to training but can get bored if the training becomes repetitive. Many excel themselves at agility, but if this option is not for you never fear good family fun and games keep a busy Eurasiers mind active.
The Eurasier is not a noisy breed, and rarely barks with out good reason, although as with any dogs some are more vocal than others. Eurasiers are not a guarding breed and should never be trained for that purpose, but will warn you of persons unfamiliar to them.
Eurasier’s exercise is a must and two walks a day to socialise them to other dogs and people. The opportunity of free running is essential to their growth and mental health. As a rule, Eurasiers mix well with other dogs but there is always the exception to the rule, so early training and socialization could help prevent this problem. Also most Eurasiers have little hunting instinct but some do enjoy the chase.
Eurasiers are of course excellent family dogs and get on fine with children, providing that the children have been taught to treat the dog with respect and not as a toy.
