Let me sing to you the song of my people! Almost every Husky ever Huskies are very, very social dogs, even more so than many other breeds. They don't like being alone and they'll notice if something is up, calling for missing members of the pack, etc. Whether you can train a dog out of it has to be decided on a case by case basis. This howling for missing ...

While there might be an argument made for yes, I go with a strong NO, don't do it if you love your cat! According to multiple websites it is not a good idea to have a dog with a high prey drive and other pets in the same house. Those dogs will kill those other pets if they can. And husky's can have a very high drive. Now, it can be done, having a husky ...

The situation was certainly not desirable, but all things considered not out of the norm. First of all, in comparison to other breeds, Huskies have a more feral temperament. This quality was highly valued by the Inuit who needed strong and independent dogs for their sleighs. Then you need to keep the situation in mind: the rabbit triggered her hunting ...

Look into separation anxiety. Depending on the specific temperament of the doggie and the amount of abuse it has suffered prior, it might take few months and doggie doesn't necessarily have to fully become OK with the separation. Do the right thing and put Husky into into care of somebody who can be with him 24/7. My Husky is with me 24/7, so it most ...

On top of submissive urinating, it's critical that Husky has a fixed, stable routine. They are the Top Dog when it comes to bending the rules, constantly pushing the boundaries and looking at you with a galaxy full of guilt. I walk my Husky 5 times a day. A -50 °F (-46 °C) blizzard is not an excuse to stay inside. Sometimes, she needs to go more often, so ...

Many dogs, especially puppies, urinate when they are very excited - either positively excited by the return of a loved one or negatively excited by a reprimand or fight for dominance. This behavior is called submissive urinating. It's important to understand that this behavior is a dog's way of saying "I want to be your friend, I'll accept you as the ...

A husky is a great dog, but they are a Working Breed (e.g. Huskies, German Shepherds, Border Collies, Spaniels etc), a dog bread specifically for a job or performing tasks and are normally high in energy and drive. Which is a huge commitment. Huskies where bread as sled and guard dogs. This remains in their genes to this day. Which is why they have high ...

I would recommend another breed. Please avoid dogs bred for high energy work like Huskies, Border Collies and other herding dogs and hounds. There are several (mostly smaller) breeds that don't need as much physical activity. Just because your dog has a big garden doesn't mean that it will run laps or entertain itself. I also recommend either adopting an ...

This is fairly normal, Huskies (among) are double coated dogs. Breeds like German Shepherds, Akitas, Malamutes, Newfoundlands etc also have them, mainly working dogs bread for harsh working conditions. This means there is an additional coat you don't normally see, unless you go looking, it is shorter than the common white/grey/black coat you see, this is ...
