The Siberian Husky originated in northeastern Siberia as an endurance sled dog. In 1909 large numbers of this breed arrived in Alaska to participate in sled racing. The Siberian Husky's endurance, stamina, and strength quickly made them a popular breed in the Arctic region.
The Siberian Husky is a compact and strong working dog. They are able to withstand temperatures as low as 75 degrees below zero, so are best suited for cooler to cold climates. They display a measure of dignity and reserve. The Siberian Husky is an amiable companion and willing worker.
The Siberian Husky has an affectionate, gentle, and friendly disposition. They are alert and eager to please. They are highly intelligent and have an independent spirit, which can sometimes be a challenge to their owner. This versatile breed gets along very well with children and other medium sized dogs. However, their strong predatory instinct makes them dangerous to cats and other small pets. The Siberian Husky thrives in a family environment but does not become overly attached to one specific person. They will exhibit no fear or suspicion of strangers. They are not well suited for a two career family and require attention and companionship. They prefer to live in packs.
The Siberian Husky is by nature clean and free from body odor. They require daily brushing to minimize excess loose hair, tangles, and mats. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary with a mild shampoo. The Siberian Husky is prone to hip dysplasia, cataracts, and skin allergies. It is extremely vital that they do not become overheated.
The Siberian Husky has a medium length double coat. The under coat is dense and soft in texture. The outer coat is longer and coarse with straight guard hairs. Their coat comes in a variety of colors and patterns. The most common colors are black and white, gray and white, copper red and white, and pure white. The facial markings include masks and spectacles. The Siberian Husky is a constant shedder that totally sheds the undercoat twice a year.
The Siberian Husky is highly intelligent but has a mind of its own. They will only obey a command if they see the point of it. They respond best to patience, consistency, and fairness. They will quickly take advantage of an owner that doesn't let them know who the boss is. They may be difficult to housebreak. The crate training method is recommended. They will do well with early obedience training.
The Siberian Husky has an innate and deep desire to run. They do best with a large securely fenced yard. If they are left alone for extended periods of time they will become bored which leads to digging and destruction. They make excellent walking and jogging companions provided they are very securely leashed and the climate is not too hot. The Husky is not recommended for apartment dwelling unless they are exceedingly well trained and sufficiently exercised.

Annual cost of owning a Siberian Husky puppy

Before buying a puppy it is important to understand the associated costs of owning a dog. The annual cost or "upkeep" is often overlooked when determining a Siberian Huskies true ownership cost. When calculating your budget make sure you account for the price of food, vaccines, heartworm, deworming, flea control, vet bills, spay/neuter fees, grooming, dental care, food, training and supplies such as a collar, leash, crate, bed, bowls, bones, and toys. All of these items can add up quickly so make sure you estimate anywhere from $500 - $2,000 or more for the first year then about $500 - $1,000 or more every year thereafter to meet the annual financial obligations of your growing, loving dog.

My neighbor is selling Siberian Huskies for $1,200 to $1,600.She says has AKA papers. She is not a breeder. We picked brown/white 8 weeks old and said $1,600 because of color. Does any of this sound valid?

1 Comment


If your neighbor has AKC registered puppies, then your neighbor is a breeder. She may just be a hobby breeder, but if her dogs are registered and health checked, then she is still considered a breeder. A breeder can choose the price of their pups at any time. Coloration may be a part of the price if there is a stark contrast in colorations within the litter. The price that you got your pup at sounds perfectly acceptable as the average price of a Siberian Husky pup is between $1,700.00 - $2,100.00 per puppy.

Anonymous asked:
What age is good to have your Siberian Husky dog go to a trainer?

1 Comment


As soon as you get your puppy, no matter the age, start training. At 8 weeks you can work with your own pup until they have their full set of shots. At roughly 4 months old, your pup should have their full set of shots and can start going to a puppy training class. I encourage all puppy owners to go to a puppy training class, and then an adult obedience class when the dog is 6 - 8 months old. Then when the dog is 1 year, if you can find a trainer that does 2nd level obedience, take that class as well. This will give you all the tools you will need to train your dog the way you want your dog to be.

Anonymous asked:
My Dad is thinking about getting a husky for the family. But there are two problems I’m not sure about. First, everyone in my family work and my siblings and I have to go to school. Is it safe to leave the Husky at home for about 6-8 hours? Second, I have a sister who is 4. Will the Husky like attack or bite her in any way?



The Siberian Husky is a very energetic and athletic breed of dog. They need an average of 2 hours of running exercise a day, they are also a pack-breed of dog. They were bred to live among many other Husky's and so enjoy being with the family and with other dogs. It is much better and easier on their socialization to have more than one dog in the home if a Siberian Husky is going to be added. Since your family works an average amount of time, unless you are ready to put in an hour in the morning and an hour at night every day, no matter the weather; I would not suggest a Husky. Your little sister will be perfectly fine, but the Siberian Husky is a mouthy breed of dog, so as a puppy he/she may be mouthy with anyone in the family.


These dogs were bred to work and thrive around other huskies, so it's really important that they spend a lot of time with their family. They also require a lot of training, and are known to be very mouthy. Based on the information given, I would not recommend a Husky for your lifestyle.

Anonymous asked:
Do huskies shed a lot?



In one word, yes. In several, the Siberian Husky breed is a high-shedding breed. They need to be brushed at least 2 - 3 times a week, or done by a professional groomer once a month. But you will still find little fluff balls of hair floating along the floor and behind the doors. One of the many charms of the Siberian Husky breed.


Yes, they shed constantly. They typically need to be brushed daily because of the amount of fur they shed.

Anonymous asked:
Are Siberian Husky's ok with really hot weather (im not talking desert hot im talking tropical jungle hot)or FL weather?



No, the Siberian Husky was bred for very cold weather. They do not have the fur, nor the genetics to deal with very hot weather such as in Florida, Texas, California, ect. Purchasing a breed like the Siberian Husky and having it live in hot weather will not only be very difficult for the dog, but for the owner too. The owner will have to spend more money on A.C to keep the home at a much cooler temperature so it is comfortable for the dog. This breed are able to stand below zero temperatures, not warm temperatures. Also, this breed needs a large amount of exercise or they will become destructive, and vocal. They need an average of 2 hours of running exercise a day, and since they can not tolerate heat; they will need to be ran early in the morning (around 4am, when it's still relatively cool out) and again very late at night (around 10pm, when it has cooled down again). I would suggest a different breed of dog if you live in Florida, a breed that is able to deal with the hot weather and not be at risk for heat stroke.


Much of California coast area has weather from cool in summer and cold in the winter. The dogs can enjoy this weather with their think double coats. A Chicago Summer is to hot and humid. There are many weather conditions to consider in the lower 48.


Our Huskies are okay in the warmer weather. They have a shallow pool of cool water they like to play in.


Our Huskies are okay in warm weather as long they have a place to go cool off like a pool of water and shade or inside they do fine. Their under coat helps keep them cool just as it helps keep them.


I have two Huskies in Hawaii and they do very well in the weather here. They love swimming and the beach and I do not need to keep them in AC they prefer to lay in the cool shade. They do not overheat here.


We are a Siberian Husky breeder in Florida. We are from Ohio so we have experience with the hot weather as well as the cold weather. Huskies do well with extreme temperatures of both. Their double coats protect them from the cold as well as the heat. Also huskies will not grow as thick of a coat if they live in a hot or humid climate. A short haired dog will actually overheat before a husky will because their skin is more exposed. We have sold many huskies in Florida and have never had anyone complain of them over heating. It is best to do your own research on the breed before purchasing. You may pass up owning a husky because you believed they aren’t well suited for Florida or other warm climates.


Huskies were bred to withstand the cold, and therefore have thick double layered coats. However, they can do well in hot weather, including Florida weather, as long as they are kept cool.


Huskies can live in hot climates. In fact their fur can keep them cool. Do some research and think outside the box. Their under coat can help keep them cool. They have a inner mechanism that cools them down. Weird how only cold weather dogs can't live in warm climates but you can have a hot weather dog in cold climates. I live in Texas, currently own a German shepherd dog. I have seen many huskies here and are happy. But right now its cold here in November colder then usual. And if anything short hair dogs have it worse in cold weather then vice versa. Huskies can regulate their temperature to deal with hot weather, pitt bulls don't have anything to fight against cold weather. Just one short coat that's it! Short hair dogs here shake in cold weather, even with doggy coats! So to anyone who says huskies can't live in hot environments, get a pitt bull and let it in the snow for 20 minutes see how that works out for you... my german shepherd doesn't like cold let alone a pitt bull or Vizlsa. But oh it's ok to put short hair dogs in cold weather because logic.
