The Samoyedo has taken its name from the towns samoyedos of Siberia. An alternative name for the race, especially in Europe, is Bjelkier. These nomadic towns of shepherds of reindeer raised this race to help with the pasturing, to throw of sleighs and to maintain to their hot owners by the nights sleeping to their side.

The Samoyedo takes its name from a town in Russia that after the Russian revolution changed its name by “Nenets”. Different explorers from the Arctic (for example Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen) took different units from Europe and maintained the name of “Samoyedos” to as much settle down deposits in Europe as in the United States.

Fridtjof Nansen thought that the use of drag dogs was the unique effective way to explore the north and used Samoyedos in its polar expeditions. Unfortunately, its plan was disastrous for the animal, gliding to feed the strongest dogs with the weakest dogs as they went dying during the expedition. In the end, it lost almost all the dogs.

Roald Amundsen used a group of dogs led by a Samoyedo of Etah name in the first expedition that reached the South Pole.

DNA recent analyses of to this took it race to be including within the fourteen races of older dogs, along with the Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute, the Chow Chow and other 10 races. The Samoyedo bred and has been trained during last the 3,000 years.
