If you are looking for a dog breed that has a gentle and playful nature, and has an amazing appearance, you are looking for the Siberian Huskies. There weather proof double coat and extreme stamina will simply amaze you. This article is going to give you some tips to owning Siberian Huskies.
The first thing you should do when you get a husky is to make sure your yard is securely fenced. Huskies are great jumpers and they love to dig, so make sure that you make the fence high and the foundations deep. Without these precautions you run the risk of your new dog running way. You will need to invest a lot of time and patience into training these dogs.
The Siberian Huskies are extremely intelligent dogs but they do not always do things to please their owner, they need to see a reason for doing it. If you put the time into training them though they will begin to do what you want. Make sure that you keep them on a leash at all times when in an open area. Huskies enjoy running, no matter where they are running to, or away from.
If you take a husky off its leash and it runs away you could never see it again because it will run without knowing you are not keeping up. You need to make sure that you allow the husky to get plenty of exercise. If you are unable to give the dog the exercise that it needs you should consider buying a companion dog that will be able to play with the husky.
If you are looking for a guard dog, this is not the dog for you. Huskies are affectionate by nature, and they are loveable, not only to you, but to strangers. If a stranger were to break into your house they would probably be able to walk straight up to the dog and the dog would lick them. So, find a different breed of dog if you are looking for a watchdog. If you want a dog that is low maintenance and does not require much time being brushed, the Siberian Huskies are the dog for you.
You will rarely have to brush them, but about twice a year they will begin to shed pretty badly and during that time you will need to brush them a lot. Owning Siberian Huskies is a great move if you want a loveable dog. They are not the type of dog you should buy for a watchdog, but with the right amount of training you will have a low maintenance dog that is extremely nice.
