I am thinking about getting a huskie. Is there a short hair which sheds less? I have a big back yard but no fence, will the huskie run off if he isn't on a leash? What about invisible fence? Giving him excercise is not a problem. I also have a 15 year old persian cat, what are the odds the two will coincide? Will the dog jump in the pool? It is a vinyl liner pool and I am worried it's claws would put holes in the liner.

All Siberians will shed no matter the coat length. Diet has some bearing on how much they shed but no matter what they do. Even when raised with cats, many huskies are not safe with them. I have had Sibes for over 20 years and just don't risk them near my cats, even though I raised them together. Invisible fences are awful for huskies, most just run right through them as the shock doesn't bother them. I would NEVER use one with this breed. It is also likely the dog will jump in the pool as they like to get in to all kinds of things.
