Prefix : ORICAL (Yakutian Laika)

We are delighted to introduce this lovely breed to Australia.

The Yakutian Laika is one of the most ancient breeds of dog. This is confirmed by archaeological finds on the banks of the Salah River, Yakutia, where the mummified remains of three puppies were found, and dated to be 12,500 years old. The breed was developed by the indigenous people of Yakut, where they were considered to be a valuable asset and an indispensable assistant to the people.

Throughout history and even to present day, the Yakutian Laika was and is used by the Yakutian people to pull sleds. The transportation of goods over long distances was imperative for these Siberian dwelling people, and there was no other suitable animal for this purpose in this region. Additionally the dogs were easy to feed on long journeys, by catching fish in the main rivers they travelled next to.

The breed plays an amazing part in human-canine history. In the 1990’s, at an excavation site at Zhokhov Island, Yakutia, Russian archaeologist Vladimir Pitulko found the remnants of sledges, dog harnesses and well-preserved dog bones. Dating by radiocarbon determined that they were 7,800-8,000 years old. The world scientific journal Science recognised this find as the very first evidence of the use of a dog for the transport of goods and, in general, the first evidence of man's use of a dog for any purpose.

We imported 3 adult Yakutian Laika from Russia in 2019, and welcomed the first litter in Nov 2019 and second in Aug 2020.
