Are some countries/climates unsuitable for Tamaskan Dogs?


Generally speaking, Tamaskan Dogs are not suited to most tropical climates unless the heat and humidity are not too excessive and the weather remains only mildly warm for most of the year. That being the case, there are some countries/climates that are unsuitable for Tamaskan Dogs. Due to the excessive heat of tropical/desert regions, which a Tamaskan would not be able to survive for long if one got loose outdoors, we do not recommend Tamaskan puppies be sent to live in the following places: Algeria, Bahrain, Chad, Egypt, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, Yemen, etc.

Bearing in mind that the Tamaskan is considered an “arctic/nordic breed” they certainly prefer temperate climates and love snowy winters. That being said, they are able to adapt to a variety of mild-moderate climates including: Subtropical, Mediterranean, Oceanic, Subtropical Highland, Continental, and Boreal. It is important to remember that Tamaskans have thick, dense fur that allows them to stay warm in extremely cold climates. Although they are able to shed their fur and maintain a thinner (summer) coat year-round, it is imperative that they are given extra consideration during the summer season: staying indoors with air conditioning, etc during the hottest times of the day.
