My samoyed would have an outside dog kennel where he/she would sleep and a crate for when the weather is bad. The dog would be in a household of six people.
I have a pretty big yard where we could spend time with him/her. Is it a problem that during the weekdays no one will be home from 9 am to 6 pm? If Samoyeds arent the right dogs for me, which dog breeds would be better for my living situations?
I think samoyed is a great outdoor dog. If you make kennel big enough, in the deep shade you can level him there for up to 10 hours. I suggest providing him with a "run path" in his kennel so he can run and vent.
