The Siberian Husky is a charming, mischievous, intelligent and loyal companion. It is friendly and not overly suspicious of people and other dogs. If you’re looking for a guard dog, a Siberian Husky is not for you. It is a highly active and playful dog with a sense of humour, which means your days will be full of action. It is also a bit unruly that it tends to dig and bury things. However, do not think it as a destructive behaviour. It is only acting on centuries-old of instinct. If you don’t want it digging anywhere, make sure you train them early on to dig in a specific spot.
When it comes to its living quarters, this dog breed’s temperament may not require a lot of space. But still it needs more than a small apartment in a crowded neighbourhood to release those energies. The Siberian Husky will need enough room to run, take long walks or hike. It loves exploring, so it is the best companions for people with an active lifestyle. However, due to their playfulness, Siberian Huskies’ interaction with kids must be supervised to avoid accidental injuries. It can have a very high prey drive that is challenging to curb so it is best to avoid smaller pets like birds and rodents.
Training a Siberian Husky is quite easy because it is smart and performs well in obedience tasks. Also because Siberian Huskies are pack dogs, they acknowledge leadership especially if they recognise the owner as its leader.
Like each breed, Siberian Huskies have pre-dispositions of temperament and intelligence. If you want your Siberian puppy to grow to be a kind and obedient dog, expose it to different people and experiences when it is young.
