Arrival Story: In October of 2004, I realized that the American Eskimo Dog was the dog for us. After lots of research, we found a reputable breeder whom we got to know very well. After months of agonizing waiting (about the length of a human pregnancy), we brought Dakota home in June of 2005. He is wonderful!!!!
Bio: Dakota is a standard male who is mostly white. He's 17.5" tall and weighs around 30 pounds. Even though we have the largest of the three sizes of the Eskie, he is still small enough to be the perfect house dog.
Dakota has already completed the following classes: Puppy Kindergarten, Obedience 1, Companion Dog, Beginning Agility, Adv. Beginning Agility, and Intermediate Agility. He's in Novice Agility class right now. We're continuing with agility because he loves to run and jump all the time. In addition to agility, we've shown Dakota a few times, and he's now a UKC Champion!! Another activity Dakota is involved with is visiting the seniors at a local nursing home.
