Samoyed Club of America

Promoting the well being and future of the Samoyed breed.

The official AKC breed club for the Samoyed since 1923.


Samoyeds take the spotlight in shows where Samoyeds are judged by their physical characteristics to determine which most closely match the ideal Samoyed breed standard.

The two types of showing are:

Conformation, in which adult Samoyeds are judged based on how well they “conform” to the breed standard.

Futurity, in which Samoyed litters (or individual puppies) are judged based on how well they represent the future of the breed.
