The Eurasier is a calm, mild-mannered dog that is an excellent companion. They are alert, watchful, and devoted to their family. While they have a propensity to be reserved in the presence of strangers, the Eurasier is never timid or aggressive. This breed should be properly socialized from an early age. Some Eurasiers form such close relationships with their family member(s) that they have trouble being boarded for even a short period of time. They are an intelligent breed and they are quick to learn. They should receive soft-handed, firm training that is consistent but not repetitive. They are good watchdogs, but they are not guards. They will not bark without a reason. This breed usually gets along well with other dogs.
There are no recorded health-related issues or concerns for the Eurasier. This breed typically lives for 11 to 13 years.
The Eurasier was developed in Germany in the 1960’s by a man named Julius Wipfel. The contributors of this breed are the Keeshond (Wolfspitz), the Chow Chow, and the Samoyed.
The Eurasier needs plenty of exercise and daily physical activity. They enjoy going for long walks, and they should have a safe area to run free. This breed shouldn’t be kept in a kennel, chained outside, or confined to a small space. If left unattended or isolated for extended periods of time, the Estonian Hound can become very depressed.
