As the name implies, the Siberian Husky is native to Siberia. Bred as a watchdog meant to herd reindeer and pull sleighs, the dog was later traded to Alaska. A breed that has a lot of stamina and enjoys working, the Siberian Husky is made to endure the coldest of weather conditions. Used in the 408-mile All Alaska Sweepstakes, the dog later gained popularity during a diphtheria breakout, pulling sleds filled with medicine to the sick. Besides performing well in sled-pulling, the Siberian Husky enjoys racing and carting.
Sweet by nature and friendly to all people, the Siberian Husky isn't much of a watchdog, but he is a gentle soul. Requiring cool weather due to his winter coat, it's best that he does not live in warm climates. Shedding only twice a year, the Siberian Husky makes for a good inside dog. He requires a good amount of physical activity and does best with a larger fenced-in yard. Doing best with specialized training, he requires a master that is firm with him. Needing a lot of attention and socialization, a lonely Siberian Husky is known to howl and become destructive. Avoid any such issues by partaking in physical activity prior to leaving him alone. Excelling with other Siberian Huskies around, he can learn to enjoy other breeds if he is raised with them.
The Siberian Husky loves to wake up at the crack of dawn ready for action. Bred to work, he's ready to pull sleighs and tromp in the snow for hours on end. Needing only a moderate amount of food, he'll continue engaging in play or running with his master until the day has ended. Visiting with neighbors and anyone who comes to the house, the Siberian Husky enjoys socialization. Ending his day cuddled at the foot of the bed, he'll be happy to have spent his day with his master.
