For dogs, Samoyed's ear hair is negligible, but it can't be cleaned for a month or two, preferably every 7-15 times.
Pay attention to pruning in summer, and pay attention to pruning in winter. After bathing this fluffy dog, the hair must be blow-dried, not air-dried on its own. Many pets suffer from skin problems from not drying in the tub or bathing too often.

The Samoyed's skin resistance is not particularly good, and hair loss and allergic dermatitis are also common diseases. When feeding the dog food, breeders can add some vitamin tablets that increase skin resistance to improve its skin.
You can also feed your Samoyed a little calcium powder to strengthen its bones and make it more athletic. If you want to change a dog food for your dog, don't change all the previous ones at once, because he is not used to it, and rashly changing it may cause a stress reaction. Gradually change the dosage for the new dog, then increase the dosage until it doesn't reject all the dog food.

Slow down and take the initiative to eat dog food, stimulation is often the best way to train a dog.
