ESKIPOO

History

There is very little information about this designer dog breed. Most probably; Eskipoos came into existence in the late 20th century and are a cross between two purebreds, namely, American Eskimo and Poodle. However, it is still not known who first bred them and when. One theory states that Eskipoos could be traced back to ancient Roman and Egyptian times. Some dog researchers also believe they came from Germany.

Temperament & Personality

Eskipoos are often referred as “dogs with a smiling face”! They are family dogs and love the company of humans. As Eskipoos are fun-loving dogs with a friendly personality, they should never be left alone, as isolation could often make them sad. Their intelligence and loyalty make them easy to be trained. Eskipoos are a perfect companion for kids and the aged people as well, and they are friendly with other pets and dogs also.

Care

Eskipoos need a daily brushing of their coats and teeth, and also require their nails clipped as well, ideally by a professional - as the lower part of their nails contain live blood vessels and nerves. They should be bathed with a gentle dog shampoo when necessary. Weekly cleaning ( a simple wipe ) of their ears will prevent them from catching an infection. Make sure that you do not insert anything in its ears.

Exercise

Eskipoos need a moderate amount of mental and physical activity. Take it with you for a short daily walk and play with it in a park ( or a fenced yard ) and in indoors also.

Grooming

They are smart and pick up training quickly, far sooner than many other dog breeds. As they possess a strong will, a firm but affirmative handling is occasionally needed. You can also take the help of obedience schools. Children should be taught how to touch an Eskipoo.

Health Problems

As this species is relatively new, long-term health issues are still not known. However, Eskipoos are prone to certain diseases like Addison's syndrome, bloat, Cushing’s syndrome, Legg-Calve-Perthes disease, hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, skin problems and eye problems.

Training

Socialization and early training are very much necessary for them as they are pretty fond of the company of humans. As Eskipoos are barkers, make sure that it does not get carried away. Just be consistent in training and use rewards and praises to motivate an Eskipoo. Give the dog its favorite foods as they encourage an Eskipoo a lot.

Feeding

Eskipoos need two meals daily, but one should never overfeed an Eskipoo so that it does not become obese. The ideal intake an Eskipoo needs daily ranges from 0.5 to 1.5 cups of high-quality dry dog food.
