  • I'm training a sled dog right now.

  • My friend sasha

  • is curating a pack of cute cuddly sled dogs,

  • that she's training to be a team.

  • I was told to turn around as soon as I got to the polar bear warning sign.

  • Sasha gave me this vest and said that if you leave the settlement without a gun

  • you have to be wearing something bright to scare off polar bears... Okay.

  • Now I'm running with a dog named little snowball.

  • Come on Little Snowball, let's do this.

  • So it Sasha's goal to curate a group of Russian dogs.

  • This dog is named Dan, and he's giving me a run for my money.

  • Here's a tricky thing about these dogs being Russian dogs: even though they have an

  • origin in Russian traditional culture meaning these breeds were literally

  • created by Russian communities many years ago - even though that's the case

  • dog breeding in the 20th century became this very official enterprise and with

  • that came all this authority and bureaucracy surrounding and it's kind of

  • these international conventions and authorities to set the parameters of

  • what is a husky? And what is a golden retriever? Excuse my ignorance I don't

  • really know many dog breeds.

  • But during this time, when dog breeding became super official

  • and international, the Soviet Union was isolated from the

  • world. People from the Soviet Union couldn't go to dog shows in Spain and

  • Portugal and the United States and so because of that the Western world kind

  • of co-opted these breeds.

  • So, all these Russian dogs that we're looking at here,

  • are technically under the authority and administered by the Nordic Dog Union.

  • It's kind of a strange irony. I'm not going to tell Sasha that, it might

  • burst her bubble, but to me little snowball you'll

  • always be Russian.

  • Here we are again with Tor, who happens to be not only Norwegian

  • and Nordic but also the son of a world-renowned dog breeder and dog show

  • judge. So Tor, are these dogs Russian or do they belong to the authority of the

  • Nordic Dog Union? Yeah, so I've talked to my mom about this and she was like oh yeah

  • they're all Nordic. But then I was like, but it's Siberian husky and it's Samoyed and it's from

  • Siberia. Like, clearly these are Russian.

  • I think they're Russian. They're developed

  • 3,000 years ago by Inuits and Siberian peoples and then some Europeans just

  • "discovered" them or take them away from the Communists and just say like oh we're

  • going to take over from here, good job.

  • I think they're Russian.

I'm training a sled dog right now.
