Understanding and Training a Siberian Husky

Siberian Husky

Athletic & strong, the Siberian Husky is a tireless worker that requires early obedience training in order to manage their demonstrative character. Be aware that this is also a clever breed that is known to yelp at the slightest tug on the lead, only to seize an opportunity to take advantage moments later. Recall is a very important command due to their strong desire to hunt & explore.

Sled dogs, in general, have strong prey drives, as food was often scarce in their cold & harsh environments. Although the Siberian can become socialised around small animals, it is best to keep them well supervised until complete trust is well earned & established.

This is an adaptable breed that will adjust to city living, provided they get enough vigorous exercise. This is also an easily bored breed that does not do well when confined or left in-active for long periods of time.

As a pack animal, the Siberian Husky does have a gentle temperament that are usually friendly, affectionate & curious. A well balanced Husky is well exercised and well appreciated by its owner - someone that can keep pace with this eager & active companion.
