American Eskimo Dog Characteristics

The American Eskimo Dog, or "Eskie" as they are lovingly referred to, is a non-sporting breed that comes in standard, miniature, and toy sizes. These absolutely adorable and beautiful dogs are easily trained and very eager to please.  As a result, they fit in with most families and are also very social with other animals.

Though commonly confused for a mini version of the Samoyed breed, the American Eskimo breed is much newer and was bred to be an all-around work dog. Originally from Germany, these dogs were brought over in the 1800s and known as the "German Spitz." The easiest way to tell the breeds apart is their size; the American Eskimo is almost always smaller, with the largest versions of the breed nearly matching the smallest examples of the Samoyed.
 
While the toy variety only stands around 9 inches at the shoulder, the standard Eskie can stand around 19 inches tall. Commonly seen in all white or biscuit-colored coats, the friendly temperament and variety of sizes make the American Eskimo a popular choice for those living in apartments or small spaces. Make sure you provide these free-thinking dogs with obedience training and early socialization to ensure they don’t run the house for you!
 
They are very smart and train well, and can be agile with tricks and athletic abilities. They’re sweet, friendly, and extremely affectionate with their families and friends, but might be a bit shy around strangers. Since they’re active and intelligent, it’s a good idea to give them daily exercise and new activities on a regular basis.
 

How dog-friendly is Utah?

Utah has some definite areas for improvement for pets. Let’s dig into the numbers and find out Utah’s strengths and weaknesses when it comes to dog-friendly living.


Animal advocacy group Pawsafe conducted a study ranking each state by its pet-friendliness. The study evaluated states according to several important factors like animal cruelty laws and regulations, pet-friendly accommodations, pet services, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails.


In their study, Utah ranked as the 37th most pet-friendly state. Unfortunately, the state did not score well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards. Definitely room for improvement.


Safewise is a national safety review site. Their study on animal safety also ranked states. In their study, Utah is ranked as the 35th most pet-friendly state. Combining these two studies puts Utah somewhere towards the middle to the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.

A few more facts for dog-lovers in Utah

Here’s an upside: BringFido lists Utah as a pet-friendly travel destination with over 1500 verified pet-friendly hotels and motels. The site also lists Millcreek Canyon and Memory Grove as popular dog-friendly attractions within Salt Lake City.


Thirty-six percent of Utah residents own a dog. This is below the national dog ownership rate of 40%, though not by much. 


What kinds of dogs do Utahans love? According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in Utah are Labradors, Retrievers, and German Shepherds. Other popular breeds include Huskies, Collies, and French Bulldogs. 

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Utah

Utah saved 39,358 dogs and cats during 2020. Approximately 4740 animals were killed over this same period. 


Forty-two out of 62 of the animal shelters within Utah are no-kill shelters. The percentage of no-kill shelters is relatively high, and the state has an above-average save rate of 88%. However, this is just short of the 90% mark needed to be considered a no-kill state.
