The Tschukotka Esdowaja, (Tschukt Laika) is not yet a course dog recognized by the FCI, carriage dog, work dog Tschukt in Siberia.
Since 1999 it is one in the RKF (Russian cynologists federation) as group of breeds recognition carriage dog - race. The acknowledgment in the FCI takes place presumably in the year 2009.Die race justified with other dogs of the Siberian peoples 1910 the breed desSiberian Husky: Jukaghiren dog (Jakuti Laika) and the Kamtschatka dog. In completely Siberia all urtypischen dogs of descendants of the first dogs are the immigrants coming from the south into these regions had brought. "Esdowaja Laika" means "transport Laika" or carriage, which a Laika pulls.
This race is developed from copies of the best natives of carriage dogs Tschukt and other peoples of the northeast Sibiriens. A draft of the new race standard is already formulated. Descriptions of the natives of carriage dogs of the Tschuktschen peninsula (also Tschukotka peninsula called) generally reflect the appearance of the carriage dog in the east, usual in the tundra, and the other zones of the Taimyr peninsula. Naiveness: This characteristic becomes not estimated from "the Kajoors ", the Mushern on Tschukotka. They believe that naive animals possess less perseverance and carry inferior work out. This will apply probably not to the dogs, this but faith is nevertheless in Siberia and Uralauch under the holding of Laiki to the hunt be eingestzt far common.

Carriage dogs of Tschukotka are friendly and loyal humans opposite. They give loud, if another team or vehicle approaches them or their camp becomes to however never attack or humans bite. The Tschukotka of dogs competes with one another around resources and is contentious. A carriage team can work only after the establishment of a ranking under the animals. As all Nordi can have the dogs a natural hunt impulse and become so dangerous for other domestic animals. As far as we know, they do not make a difference between house and game animals and if possible, a chance the hunt will also use.
The Tschukotka carriage Laika is to be established thereby as carriage dog race. However these dogs knew a strong hunt impulse and to the hunt for larger game, as. bear or wild pig is e.g. used. As a family dog the Tschukotka dog is a good guard. Reinrasige Tschukotka Laiki will be probably used for the carriage dog sport, which becomes ever more popular in Russia. Finally the race will specialize alone in this use and its hunt impulse will lose. In the year 1999 the race was registered as group of breeds in derRKF (FCI). After further 10 years the acknowledgment can take place.
Natives of dogs of the northeast Siberia rank among the healthiest and dogs of the world and so also the Tschukotka carriage Laika.
