Description: Hardy and playful, these dogs are excellent with children. Highly intelligent, willing to please, alert and easy to train, the Toy American Eskimo often ranks among the top scorers in obedience trials. Some individuals have a willful streak, but most like to work.
Dogs whose ancestry displays nervousness, hyperactivity or viciousness should not be bred. These dogs are naturally wary of strangers, but once introduced, they become instant friends. Some have been known to not let a stranger enter the home until the owner says it is okay. Toy American Eskimos need to be part of the family and engage in nuisance activities when isolated. Handle them gently, but firmly. This breed needs attention and loves to bark.
