Like other breeds, the Siberian Husky has its pros and its cons. They are not the right K9 for everyone. If you are the type person who likes a challenge, and is dedicated, the Siberian Husky could be the breed for you.

Below are just a few things one can expect from a Siberian. This does not cover everything by no means of what they can and / or will do. I hope this will give you some idea of what to expect. Do the research and make the decision that is best for you. What ever breed of K9 you decide to get PLEASE If you don't intend to breed to better that breed, spade and neuter for the health of your new companion.


Siberians come in a variety of colors and facial markings They are a very attractive breed. They are very clean dogs. Some say that in a lot of ways compared to a cat in some of ways that they clean themselves. They don't have that 'doggy' odor. They have a very sweet disposition and generally love everyone. Siberians are good with children and get along well with them. However kids cannot go silly and play rough with them, it just means that as a general rule, they are not aggressive toward kids in general due to their small statue The Siberian Husky is a versatile breed. There are a variety of things to do with your K9. Some of the things that you can do with them are; conformation showing, run them in harness either for fun or competitively, skijoring, scootering, carting, do obedience with them. One can just enjoy them as a wonderful companion that they can be. Regardless of what you try. They will always make you laugh, cry, and scratch your head in wonder and amazement of what they will do next.


This cannot be stressed enough! The Siberian Husky has a huge desire to run and therefore you must maintain a constant vigilance to make sure they are safely secured in your yard or when they are out of your yard, they must be on lead! Siberians have been known to lull their owners into a false sense of security, letting them believe their K9s are not like others. That their K9 is the most trustworthy of all, off lead until that tragic day when they don't stop at that open gate, they don't come back when called and they don't see or hear that speeding vehicle heading towards them. In most situations when not living in an apartment environment Siberians require good high fencing as they can jump (from a standing start) anything up to 5-6 feet. Siberians do what some call 'blow' their coat. This means that they shed their undercoat at least once or twice a year all (and that does mean all). When this happens you may have to assist in getting that coat out, by brushing, combing and etc. I have found a warm bath helps speed up this process. One has to have patience to own a Husky. Digging, investigating almost everything it comes into contact with, rearranging plants, landscaping flower beds, Chewing hoses, tools, items left with in reach, etc. are a few examples. This should be left to individual to make the decision if it's a con or pro . I place it in the con section because most people think it is a con. I personally think it is a PRO. Siberian Husky has strong will that is one of the characteristics of the breed I prefer. Siberians still operate like their ancestors did on a 'pack' basis. You should always ensure you are 'alpha' (pack leader) otherwise you and your family could find yourself becoming second in the pack order. Last but not least "BEWARE" What some call the "potato chip syndrome" or the "SIBE addiction" YOU can't have just one. Now if I haven't turned you off completely on the idea of being owned by a Siberian Husky. And you would like more information on the breed. You should be able to find several links on my pages that will lead to the information you seek or links to where you can find the answers to more specific questions you have. I am by no means an expert. However if you have a question that I may be able to help you with feel free to e-mail me. If I can not answer it I may have a link or a way to contact someone that can.
