More details about the Eurasier

Eurasier: Origins and history

This breed owes its existence to the famous ethologist Konrad Lorenz, who attempted to recreate a very ancient, long extinct dog, the Nenets Herding Laika. This ancient Russian dog was the result of a cross between the Wolfspitz (German Spitz) and a Chow-Chow, and lived in a state of wilderness. This same cross-breeding has allowed K. Lorenz to create, or rather re-create, the Eurasier, by commissioning it from the breeder Julius Wipfel, and deciding to add the Samoyed in the mix. In 1973, the Eurasier was officially recognised by the FCI and spread to Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Spain. Unfortunately, his distribution remained limited and this beautiful dog has never fully known much success, perhaps because of his resemblance to the Chow-Chow, the latter being more popular and heard of.

FCI classification of the Eurasier

  • Group 5 - Spitz and primitive types

  • Section 5 : Asian Spitz and related breeds

Training a Eurasier

The training process if very simple in this dog’s case, since his many capacities predispose him to fast and obedient learning in various fields. He loves to please his master, not least by proving how easy it is to cooperate with him. 

Socialising the Eurasier- which should start taking place when he is still a pup- is also remarkably seamless, given how naturally open this magnificent Spitz is. 

Having said this, the Eurasier’s inborn social competence should never justify a lax approach on behalf of his owners! This dog still needs to be reared in a precocious, coherent, fair and consequential manner, without ever allowing brutality to be part of the exchange.

Eurasier: Purchase price

The price of an Eurasier varies depending on its origins, age, and sex. You have to count an average of £730  for dogs not registered at the Kennel Club. However, for dogs who are registered, the average price is £1280.

With regards to the monthly budget required to meet the needs of a dog of this size, you have to estimate an average of £60 per month, including quality nutrition, and basic veterinary care such as deworming, vaccines etc
