Siberian Husky is a medium-to-large-size dog breed marked by resilience and fortitude. Its affectionate and happy-go-lucky attitude makes it a highly sought-after dog amongst the pet lover fraternity. Although they are extremely vibrant when young, in the subsequent stages of their lives, they become relaxed, pliant dogs that are loyal to their families, well-mannered with children and genial towards strangers. They are regarded as the best watchdogs as they’re quite social and seldom bark.

Siberian Huskies are powerful, compact, toiling sled dogs. The medium-sized head is in proportion to the body, with a muzzle that is equal in length to the skull, with a well-defined stop. The color of the nose depends upon the color of the dog's coat. It is black in gray, tan or black dogs, liver in copper dogs and flesh-colored in pure white dogs. The medium-sized, oval-shaped eyes are moderately spaced and come in blue, brown, amber or any combination thereof. Eyes can be half blue and half brown (parti-eyed), or dogs can have one blue eye and one brown eye (bi-eyed). The erect ears are triangular in shape, and set high up on the head. The teeth meet in a scissors bite.
Breeds descending from theEskimo dogorQimmiqwere once observed throughout the length and breadth of the Northern Hemisphere,in regions, such asSiberia, Canada, Alaska, Greenland,Labrador, andBaffin Island. With the help of Siberian Huskies, various tribes and clans were able not only to survive, but also succeeded in making strides towards the terra incognita.AdmiralRobert Pearyof the United States Navy pinned a lot of his hopes on this dog breed during his expeditions carried out in the North Pole.
Siberian Huskies were relied upon for centuries by the Chukchi Tribe, off the eastern Siberian peninsula to pull sleds, herd reindeer and as a watchdog. They were perfect working dogs for the adverse Siberian conditions: sturdy, able to integrate themselves into small packs, and quite pleased to work indefatigably day and night. The dogs have perennial stamina, perseverance and are lightweight.

It’s not easy to train Siberian husky. Siberian Husky training starts the moment you bring your dog home. If you use erroneous teaching methods, your dog will begin making decisions about how he desires you to fit into his life, and that's a recipe for disaster and behavior problems. Whatever he does, you must react properly or he will learn the wrong things.
They can be susceptible to hip dysplasia, ectopy (displacement of the urethra), eye issues such as juvenile cataracts, PRA (primarily in male dogs), corneal dystrophy and crystalline corneal opacities. Breeders can get hip screenings from the OFA and eye screenings yearly from a canine ophthalmologist (AVCO) and register the exam through CERF and SHOR). They can also suffer from skin issues, known as zinc responsive dermatitis, which can be treated by giving zinc supplements.
They are not usually recommended for apartments, however, they can dwell comfortably in apartments if well-trained and properly exercised. Siberian Huskies are energetic and lively indoors, and their purpose is best served by a fenced-in large yard. Because of their heavy coats, these dogs have a liking for cool climates. To shield them from the heat, be sure to provide adequate shade and air conditioning. This breed prefers to live in packs.
Siberian Huskies need a fair amount of exercise, including a daily walk or jog, but should not be excessively exercised in warm weather. They need a large yard with a high fence, but bury the wire at the base of the fence because they are likely to dig their way out and go off hunting.
The coat sheds heavily twice a year. During that time they need to be brushed and combed daily.
