How much does Ellie bark?

If you aren’t paying attention to her… not at all. If she wants something from you she usually does her “pretty bark” which is like a small howl (not very loud). Of course if she’s hyper or playing it’s a lot and very loud, sometimes it’s hard to get her to shut up but if you’re patient and calm her down she will do her pretty bark. (:

Hey, i just recently got a samoyed, and i was just wondering if it was normal that she bites everything

Absolutely. Ellie ate everything. She even chewed off the bottom corner of the cabinet in the kitchen. The best thing to do is always have toys and bones to chew on and make sure they know what the difference is between toys and other stuff like your shoes. Reward for good behavior and if it gets too bad you can spray stuff on what they bite the most with vinegar or something your dog doesn’t like the taste of. - what worked best for Ellie was I hid treats inside her toys so it kept her busy and it made her always focus on her toys cause she later realized She wasn’t going to find any treats in my shoes. But they do grow out of it!!! Really hope I helped (:

Sorry if you get asked this a lot but how old are you? You look so young (and pretty!) in your pics. I'm 20 and hoping to move out soon and get my own fur baby, I'm beyond excited (: Ellie is beautiful btw!!

I’m 19 (: I’ll be 20 in December!! And thanks lol if you do move out try to look through your local humane society’s before deciding on any kind of dog. Cause sometimes the best kinds of dogs hide there (: But if you choose to get a certain breed then goodluck!! And if you get a samoyed you can ask me absolutely anything, I’m always here to help anybody with Sammy questions(: I’m so excited for you :D lol

when did you start letting ellie off a leash? i have one too, but im too scared to let him off bc he always sniffs out deer/animal or tracks of anything! he will come when i call his name, also will always be completely obedient for treats, but im still worried off the leash he will get too distracted!!

Ellie still gets distracted but now is a good time to start. It’s great obedience training. Find a safe place like a park with no traffic and not a lot of people or even a small neighborhood. Walk for a little while and if they stay close reward them. And of course if you start to feel uncomfortable like if another dog is near by or you think your dog won’t listen always keep a leash with you. After awhile your dog will get used to the routine and commands. Ellie still runs off to smell things but I don’t mind because she always stays close. And she knows if she comes back she’ll get a treat (:
