Your Pet, Our Passion.


The Eurasier is a medium sized, robust Spitz-type dog with a thick semi-long double coat. Typical of the Spitz-types, the Eurasier has sharply pricked ears, upright, alert stance and tail curled up over the back. The topcoat is harsh and weather proof, lying loosely over top of a dense, shorter undercoat, giving the Eurasier a very warm and cuddly appearance. They come in a wide variety of colours, and everything except large white patching, pure white or merle colouration is permitted.

22 – 26kg

All except merle, solid white or parti-coloured

Eurasier Personality

Although bred to be the ‘perfect Spitz’, the Eurasier dog breed is still an independent minded, quick thinking and clever breed. They have less inclination to hunt than many Spitz types but this will vary between individuals. They also tend to be a little less vocal than other Spitz breeds but will still bark a warning at suspicious characters and won’t tolerate being left alone without a sing-song! If you like Spitz type dogs but want something more ‘Spitz-lite’ then this may be the breed for you. If you are hoping for a Spitz-look-a-like, and none of the Spitz traits, then this is probably not the dog for you!
In all other respects, the Eurasier is a clever, fast learning, capable and eager to please dog who is reasonably easy to live with (if you know and like Spitz types) and not too difficult to train (if you know and like Spitz types!). They’ll enjoy a family life with plenty to do and people around most of the time.
