American Eskimo Dog Breeders

The American Eskimo dog is bred in 3 sizes.  The Standard size can be up to 19 inches at the shoulders, the Miniature up to 15 inches and the Toy up to 9 inches at the shoulders.  A large Standard size male, as seen in the above image on the far right, can weigh up to 50 pounds.

The American Eskimo Dog as a breed almost became extinct back in 1969. The breed has since become more popular in recent years, however, it is relatively small in population in comparison to other breeds of dogs.  The American Kennel Club has stated that there are about 1,000 registered American Eskimo dogs in the USA.  Twenty five years ago, you could go anywhere in the city or travel across the country for that matter and never see an Eskie. These days, you are bound to run into one now and then.

There are few breeders of American Eskimo Dogs in Canada and the USA. Although the breed is rare, they are typically not expensive in comparison to popular breeds. You should be able to buy an Eskie for a reasonable price in the range of $400 to $1,000 for a Standard Eskie.  This is much less than you would pay at a mall pet store. You will of course pay more for an Eskie with an extensive pedigree. Summer time is usually when more puppies are available. Don't be disappointed if you have to get on a waiting list. Your best strategy is to contact as many breeders as you can and get on their waiting lists.  Good luck !

Importing An American Eskimo Dog From The USA

Importing a puppy into Canada from the USA is not as complicated as it may seem. All you need is a Vaccination Certificate, a transport crate and an airline ticket.  

If the puppy is less than 3 months old, basic vaccinations are required such as distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, and parainfluenza virus. No Rabies vaccination certificate is required. If the puppy is 3 months old or older, it must have its Rabies vaccination in addition to basic vaccinations in order for it to be allowed entry into Canada unless it comes from a Rabies Free Country. For specific requirements, visit the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. Puppies have to be a minimum of 15 weeks old in the USA and Canada before they can get a Rabies vaccination. Evidence in the form of a Rabies Certificate issued by the veterinarian who administered the vaccination needs to accompany the puppy when it comes into Canada. This is usually in an envelope that is attached to the puppy crate.

In addition, you will need to get a transport crate which you can ask the breeder to buy on your behalf. These are usually around $100 or less. You will also need an airline ticket. These cost between $50 to $100 depending on the airline. Try to arrange for a direct flight from the breeders home town to where you live. American Airlines is the best to use for transporting your puppy. Because dogs are transported in the cargo hold of an aircraft which is neither heated in the winter or cooled in the summer, try to arrange the transport of the puppy either in the spring or in the fall when temperatures are neither extremely hot or cold.  In the summer,  you can arrange for an evening flight when temperatures are cooler.  Usually airlines provide guidelines for acceptable temperatures to transport dogs and will advise you which flights are eligible for dog transport.

There is no need to sedate your Eskie puppy for a flight. You will also have to clear your puppy through Canada Customs. When the puppy arrives at the cargo terminal, you need to take the paperwork to a Canada Customs office at the terminal and present the papers. You may or may not be asked to pay a small import duty.
