This dog is highly intelligent, but often willfully resistant to formal obedience training. It can be intractable when uninterested or commanded harshly. Firm, patient training should start at an early age. The Samoyed is an outstanding, good-natured, lively, and sociable dog. This breed should not be trusted with small non-canine pets, however there are plenty of them that live and get along with cats. It tends to bark a lot. It may become very destructive if left alone for many hours.

This breed has a reputation of being a chewer. It needs a reasonable amount of exercise, but take it easy during warm weather because the woolly undercoat inhibits loss of the heat built up during exercise.
