Overview
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.
Character
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.
Temperament
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.
Care
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.
Coat
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.
Training
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.
Activity
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.

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.

I have Siberian Husky puppies for sale! See My Profile
Our family acquired our first Siberian Husky in 1982 and began mushing a small team of pets and rescues the very next year. Over the years, our kennel and interest in mushing grew and has left us with the conviction that Siberian Husky is first and foremost a working breed and should be protected as such. Our Siberian Huskies are from a blend of proven OFA and CERF-tested working and show lines selected for genetic health, temperament, working drive, and conformance to the AKC breed standard. We have several bloodlines in our kennel that are rare, up close to foundation stock, and important in the conservation of genetic health and diversity in the breed. As a result, we have a variety of unusual colors and patterns in our kennel. Our health record has been outstanding. Of 17 health-tested Boreayl Siberians descending from our foundation breeding, 13 (or 76.5%) are OFA Excellent with the remaining 4 (or 23.5%) OFA Good. We also strive for excellent eye health and longevity and have also been well above average in both respects with the vast majority of our dogs living well into their teens. We are an active participant in the AHT DNA cataract study and have participated in other research as well. Puppies are occasionally available to approved breeding and/or working homes. Reservations are recommended as our breedings are typically limited. Pet puppies are sometimes available after litters are evaluated and require in-person pick up. We are members of the Siberian Husky Club of America, Warren County Kennel Club, and the Russian Primitive and Aboriginal Dog Society.

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.

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.

Yes, it is perfectly fine for your Siberian Huskey to have bi-colored eyes. Siberian Huskies are well known for different colored eyes. Anything from dark brown, chocolate, almond, gold, grey, nearly white (ice blue), light blue, to deep blue.

What should you do if you want to have a Husky but there are kids in the house? Is it better to get a male or female? I heard it is better to get them when they are a puppy so they can grow up with the kids. Is that true?

The Siberian Husky has a very high prey drive and a lot of energy. They need an average of 3 hours of running exercise a day; as well as mental stimulation when not exercising. Children, with their high pitched laughter, frantic movements and play running can cause a Husky to become over-stimulated and for that prey drive to kick in. It does not mean that the dog wants to hurt the children, but an injury could occur because of the size of the dog compared to the child. If the puppy is raised with children, raised to respect children and given both training and exercise; then this breed can live perfectly fine with children.

Is it safe and/or wise to install a doggie door for a Siberian Husky so they can go into a fenced backyard while I'm working?

A dog door is a good idea for any home that has a fully secured/fenced yard for their dog. But please take note of three things. Not all dogs will take to the dog door right away, you will need to train your dog to go through on their own. Secondly, make sure you purchase one that will fit your dog then they are full grown. Also, a dog door is an open invite to not only your dog, but other animals as well. It may be good to look into the dog doors that need an ID collar close to the door to unlock it. This way no stray cats or wild animals check out your home while you aren't looking.
