Meet the Siberian Husky

Siberian huskies are medium sized working dogs, bred for endurance and running. They are friendly, happy dogs who need an experienced pup parent to guide them. Siberians are pack animals who enjoy family life and do well with children and other dogs. Their friendly nature, even with strangers, means they don’t make good guard dogs. They are very intelligent and strong-willed. Firm, positive training, and socialization from puppyhood is very important for the Siberian Husky to become a well-behaved member of the family.

Siberians enjoy human company and like having a job to do, even if it is just jogging with you. These dogs love to explore and are quick learners, so they’re always ready for new adventures. Siberians are very social and need the company of people or other dogs. Doggy daycare and dog park’s are great for socialization and exercise. If left alone too much or bored, they can be destructive (we recommend crate training from puppyhood) or if left alone outside, they are known to escape, eager to explore. Their love for running may overcome their love for their guardians at times too, so secure fencing and a microchip is a must!

Siberians have a high prey drive and can’t resist chasing cats, small animals, or livestock so early introduction to other animals is very important. With proper introduction, they can do great with other animals. Siberians are diggers, particularly in warm weather, because they like to create cool places to lie in. They don’t tend to bark but they do talk/howl.

Siberians have beautiful fluffy, thick double coats that require routine grooming. Their ears are close-fitting and sit high on the head. One of the most striking features of this breed is their almond-shaped eyes. 

Compared to some breeds, a Siberians lifespan is long, usually 12-15 years. Being aware of health problems can help your pup live the happiest and healthiest life possible. A nutritious diet and exercise combined, they are generally a healthy breed. However there are a few common health conditions they are prone to. 

  • Hip dysplasia
  • Ocular issues
  • Zinc deficiency
  • Epilepsy 

Siberians are very independent and stubborn so early positive training, socialization, basic obedience training, and learning good manners is important. Consistency and rewarding good behavior are essential. They are highly treat motivated😉 

Not only are Siberians high-energy dogs, but they also have a need to explore and are known as escape artists. They have an overwhelming desire to run and will do so at every opportunity. Siberians should be on a leash or in a secure fenced in area at all times and never allowed off leash. 

Siberians have a double coat and grooming should be done a couple times a week starting from puppyhood to avoid matting. More brushing is needed during shedding season and it is important to continually ‘rake out’ the old coat to get rid of loose fur. This is the undercoat rake we recommend. Never shave your Siberians coat. They are generally clean dogs and only require baths a few times a year. Trim nails regularly to avoid discomfort.

Siberians are active, athletic, working breed dogs and are happiest when they have things to do. They need to be well-exercised; exercise is important both physically and mentally. Engaging their minds and their bodies every day. A busy and active Siberian is a happy and healthy Siberian.  

Not only are Siberians high-energy dogs, but they also have a need to explore and are known as escape artists. They have an overwhelming desire to run and will do so at every opportunity. Siberians should be on a leash or in a secure fenced in area at all times and never allowed off leash. 

Feeding a high-quality food designed for their stage in life (puppy, adult, senior) is essential for a healthy skin and coat. Siberians were bred to be able to work hard on little food, they don’t eat as much as you think so you need to be careful to not overfeed your pup. It’s important to keep them at a healthy weight, even a couple of extra pounds can affect your dog’s health.  

We feed our adult dogs Purina Pro Plan Chicken & Rice and we feed our puppies Purina Pro Plan Chicken & Rice dry + wet.
