SAMOYEDS ARE REINDEER HERDERS
Samoyeds come from Siberia, where they were an important part of daily life with the nomadic Samoyedic people indigenous to Siberia. The dogs worked in sleds, kept their Samoyedic owners warm, and primarily herded reindeer. Herding instincts remain intact in modern Samoyeds, and they are often seen to "herd" children in their families.
