How To Successfully Take Care Of And Appreciate Husky Puppies

By Bob Beauford

New owners of Siberian Husky puppies are often overjoyed with the husky’s playful, domesticated personalities, and the fact they adapt quickly to families, and are excellent with children. Many Husky owners, however, become quickly agitated with the willful side of the dog’s personality. They may also find leaving the puppy alone for long periods of time is probably not the best idea.

Owners of one of these fun loving dogs should keep in mind a few key points that will go a long way in not only reducing family stress levels, but also in providing an environment in which the dog can nurture, grow and adapt positively to its new family. Though there are many breeds that can be left in the house alone, this puppy is not one of them. As a high energy dog, without supervision they tend to become too playful and destructive.

Knowing that this dog is a working dog will also help owners understand this breed. Originally bred in Alaska as a sled puller, this breed loves to work. It is a high energy breed whose affinity for not only work, but also high speed, puts it the top of the heap in terms of a dog that needs to work and burn energy. If this dog is left with nothing to do, and no one to pay any attention to this dog, or offer supervision, the animal will attempt to burn off its high energy however possible. This may include darting through the home, climbing stairs or walls, chewing things, jumping over things, and in general trying to do what the animal considers work.

This animal needs to be walked and exercised, which helps to reduce energy levels. If leaving the dog alone, make sure to put him in a crate or kennel, especially if being left indoors. Chain him to a good chain and leave plenty of room for the dog to roam. This breed loves open spaces to run and jump.

Another issue to keep in mind is that these animals are pack dwellers. That means they are used to a pack leader. They are loving, kind and playful, but these dogs will need someone to give them strong orders and direction.

Huskies that determine there is no leader will find no reason to follow a command. If they have the stronger personality this could lead to behavior issues. If they view their owner, however, as the pack leader they happily follow all rules and orders.

As a cool weather animal, heat might present an issue for this puppy. Don’t overwork the animal during summer months in high heat. This pet also tends to bark excessively at night, much like a wolf. Some pet owners, irritated by this, build an area in the yard for their dogs at night. Others try putting the dog in their bedroom.

This dog benefits immensely from obedience training, and many of the behavioral problems associated with this puppy can be minimized by the dog learning to follow commands. Also exercise or working the pet on a regular basis. This breed enjoys working, and without it become a dog that will display that energy somehow.

Dog owners may also need to consider building a fence as Husky’s are excellent climbers. If dog owners install a fence make sure it is two feet into the ground as Husky’s also have an affinity for digging under fences to escape fenced in areas.

Grooming is another issue to focus on. Grooming visits at a professional groomer might reduce any falling hair. They tend to shed and combing them regularly is an effort that keeps stray hair at a minimum, and is an activity the dog will enjoy.

Aside from this, make sure husky puppies are well socialized, both with family members and strangers. Take the dog to the park. Allow it to be petted by strangers. This breed loves attention from anyone, and responds with love and kindness. This will help the dog to respond well to visitors at your home that they don’t know later. They may look like a wolf, but they definitely love everyone.
