If what you are looking for is a guard dog, choose another breed. The only thing a Husky will do with an intruder is to greet them with their tail held high, ready to give them a lick.
With theirs, they are all love, and strangers can be somewhat more distant, despite what we said at the beginning. You will have to take long walks and hikes every day and a race too. Do not forget that they are made to work and must release that energy.
Therefore, if you are active people who love to exercise outdoors and take long walks in the countryside every day, this is your ideal breed. Otherwise, you could have a problematic relationship. This point must be obvious.
When a Husky is well socialized from puppyhood, he enjoys being accompanied by other dogs. Tending to get bored easily, the company of another dog or cat can benefit you greatly.
The Husky and the children are made for each other. This dog is willing to give their life before he allows anything wrong to happen to a child. If the child respects the dog, and the dog knows the limits, they will be inseparable.
The Husky has beautiful eyes, but they are one of their weak points. You should know that it is a candidate for hereditary cataracts. Your veterinarian will monitor it through regular check-ups. Other ocular abnormalities that may appear are corneal dystrophy, progressive retinal atrophy, and glaucoma that can progressively cause pain and loss of vision in the dog from middle age.
You will find their other weak point in their hips. Hip dysplasia being the most common pathology, in addition to skin ailments such as hair follicle dystrophy or dermatosis due to a lack of zinc.
Unlike other dogs, although the Siberian Husky loses the most hair, it gives off little odor and is very clean. So it will not be necessary for you to give them very frequent baths. Once a month will be enough. What is essential is that you use a special moisturizing shampoo.
Do not let your hair dry in the open air. If moisture is created, mold and fungus could appear. Use an electric dryer at medium temperature and without bringing it too close to avoid burning it.
During the shedding, you will have to brush them daily. After this period, two or three times a week will be enough to keep their hair at bay. A good brushing before bathing is also recommended.
Get your furry friend used to brush their teeth since he was a puppy. This should be done often to avoid the appearance of the dreaded bacterial plaque.
We can only add that you follow a strict schedule of vaccines and indoor and outdoor antiparasitic treatments such as fleas, ticks, and intestinal worms.
