Siberian Husky Dog Breed Temperament, Health Issues, Grooming and Living Conditions

husky dog breed

Temperament: The Siberian Husky is a docile dog who is, commonly, relaxed and social. They are playful, loving and quite docile, along with their loving nature; they make an excellent house pet. They are particularly good with children and friendly to visitors, this makes them unsuitable for being a watchdog. As they appear to like everybody, they would probably greet any burglars with a toy and a wagging tail. As they bark little you are probably not even going to know someone was there. It is vital to assert authority over this breed. They are used to either leading or being led; if you do not lead them, they will probably decide that they are pack leader. As they have a high level of stamina these dogs require a lot of exercise, both mental and physical.

The Siberian Husky can become bored easily, and as a result may howl and become destructive. So if you are going to leave the dog for any period of time, they must be well exercised first. Their playfulness and love of fun makes them a great play companion for children and, with any luck, they will wear each other out.

Health issues: As a breed the Siberian Husky are prone to problems with their Urethra, eyes are another place that they can get problems and their skin. Along with hip dysplasia, which is common in many breeds. Apart from these they are healthy as a breed, living between 12 and 15 years.

Grooming: These dogs shed twice a year, during this period they will require combing and brushing daily. Otherwise they are reasonably easy to groom only requiring occasional brushing or combing, as you see fit, to keep their coats in good condition.

Living conditions: Siberian Huskies will always do best in a large fenced yard. However, with adequate exercise they can live in an apartment, but they are quite active in doors so it would need to be a large apartment. They prefer cooler climates but can adapt quite well, as long as given adequate ventilation, if it is particularly warm a fan could be considered. For indoor living, they would need to be very well-trained, and particular attention needs to be paid to stopping them from getting bored.
