"The Yakutian Laika is a recently recognized breed with a long history. Yakutian Laikas are spitz-type dogs from Russia, bred for hunting, sledding, and other tasks. The Yakutian Laika, specifically, was bred by the Yakutes in Russian Siberia; they were the first people to utlize a dog in sled pulling. Today, these dogs can still perform the originally work they were bred for, but they can also make wonderful, active family companions. "...Emarkvet
Our Yakutian Laikas
We have been a pioneer kennel in bringing the Yakutian Laika to the USA. We have made major efforts in the Yakutian Laika breed to bring the best bloodlines and bring in proven dogs. Several of our dogs are dual titled in Russia in both conformation and sledding. We started in on health testing the moment our first Yakutian Laikas arrived in the USA by sending off swabs for XLPRA1 testing back to Russia as it was not available here in the USA at that time. And we haven't stopped. Watch for updates as we have a lot of information to add to this page.
None of the dogs on this page are for sale, these dogs are the foundation of our kennel and breeding program. Our dogs are show dogs as well as we do various fun performance with them such as trick dog, canine cross country, canine ninja, dog parkour, stunt dog, dock diving, and canine fitness.
We also do not and will not remove dew claws on our puppies, front or back.
Some of the dogs have outdated or incomplete information listed. I am working slowly on updating the website but it is not my highest priority. I am extremely busy with my dogs. :)
