Nayda is the only Laika I have now. In the past I had more of them. Here, she is after shedding in her summer coat. This is a naturally treeing dog. Just take your puppy in the forest and turn loose, it will start finding his own squirrels and bark under tree by age of 4 to 10 months. Laika will tree wild turkey, grouse, bobcat, raccoon and even black bear.
