I acquired my very first American Eskimo almost twelve years ago, in 1999. We have been breeding American Eskimos for about 6 years now. Our kennel, White Phantom Kennels, is registered with the Canadian Kennel Club, of which we are members in-good-standing. We raise top quality, health checked toy, miniature and standard American Eskimos. All of our dogs receive regular vet checks. All of our breeding animals have been tested for PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy). Our pups are also PRA tested so our breeder clients can be assured of the pups' health. Our breedings are carefully planned to ensure we have healthy pups. We have been inspected and approved by the SPCA.
The American Eskimo can probably trace its beginnings back to the Peat Bog Dog of the New Stone Age, approximately 6,000 years ago. The Eskimo is a handsome snow-white dog that is believed to have descended from the European Spitz breed. All Spitz breeds share certain characteristics, such as posture, upright ears, the curl of the tail. The breed first appeared on this continent during the 1800s and arrived here in the company of German immigrants.The breed was first registered in the United States in 1913 by the United Kennel Club. The name of American Eskimo was adopted in 1917.The American Eskimo is noted for being extremely smart and being easy to train. They love to run and play, and are eager to please. It is a very good watchdog, sounding off at the approach of strangers, but it is not normally a vicious dog. The breed is noted for being gentle and playful with children. In recent years they have become successful competitors in obedience and flyball as well as other agility activities. Eskimos shed or "blow" their coats usually once a year, in spring to early summer. Since the Eskimo is such an active breed, it needs to receive daily exercise.
