- Home of the Indigenous and Majestic
- Canadian Eskimo Dog
site is designed to inform and educate those interested in the Canadian Eskimo Dog. The Canadian Eskimo Dog is one of the five indigenous dogs that
Canada is proud to call their own.
- The Arctic regions of Canada approximately 2000 years ago became
home to the Thule culture of Inuit people. The land was
cohabited by the Inuit and their dogs. The dogs were an
adherent, important and vital part assisting in everyday
survival of the Inuit and their families. The dogs provided the
means of travel by sled, assisted in hunting and served as
estimated time of arrival is approximately 1100 – 1200 AD.
These dutiful dogs have stood at both poles, north and south,
serving nearly all the famous names in Arctic and Antarctic
exploration. With such a rich and proud history, they have been
commemorated and adorned over the years with a stamp (1988) and
a fifty-cent piece (1997).
There is now only 279 registered
Canadian Eskimo Dogs in existence, this number has been verified
and confirmed by the Canadian Kennel Club.
Larquoia Kennels has
been dedicated to the preservation and future survival of the Canadian
Eskimo Dog for 18 years, promising it a place in our future history and
tradition. Through promotion and participation we hope that more parties will
be willing to undertake the responsibility and dedication of this indigenous
canine and work with the existing breeders to increase the genetic pool of
registered stock. Those already involved are working diligently to increase
numbers, ensure genetic diversity, and maintain the working integrity of the
Canadian Eskimo Dog.
