The dog that makes everyone passing by take a second look at their striking beauty. The Siberian Husky has a very unique appearance. Their often multi-colored eyes, thick coats, and wolf-like features will melt anyone's heart. Typically weighing between 35-60 pounds, these medium-sized dogs are powerful, athletic, and jam-packed with energy. This is not the kind of dog that will cope with being bored at home all day, they will flip your house upside down in an instant if not given enough exercise.
The Husky is one of the oldest dog breeds and originated among the Chukchi tribe in Siberia. They were used by this nomad tribe primarily for transportation but were also often used as companion dogs. The children would sleep on their Huskies, using their fur as a nice warm pillow. Perhaps since they have lived among humans their entire lives, the Husky gets along great with everyone they meet. They do not make good watchdogs, as they will rarely be heard barking. If an intruder breaks into your home, your Husky is more likely to help them pack the jewelry than attack them. True to their wolf-like appearance, however, the Husky will howl very often, your neighbors probably won’t be impressed.
These dogs are highly intelligent, and it is remarkable how quickly they can learn. Their intelligence makes them very trainable, but it is important to know that they are pack dogs at heart. Owners must demonstrate to their pup that they are the leader of the pack, otherwise their dog will quickly take on the role. One useful technique to achieve this is to make your pup wait for their food, this will allow them to understand that you are the one in charge. Being the dominant figure will make training your Husky a lot easier, as they will respect you.
Due to the beauty of these dogs, many people desire them. Unfortunately, people do not realize how difficult this dog is to take care of, and they often end up in shelters. If you are looking to get a Husky, make sure to adopt! The Husky can be mischievous and is notorious for being an escape artist. Always be sure to keep an eye on your fur friend when they are off-leash, as they will wander whenever they get the chance. The Husky can be an amazing companion if trained properly, owners of this breed must be persistent and work hard at their pup's behavior. There will certainly be difficulties along the way when raising this ancient breed, however, they will make amazing companion dogs in the end. Do not be surprised when your pup is the center of attention at the dog park, as everyone will be admiring their stunning appearance.
