Things to Consider When Choosing Your Husky Dog

Jun 17, 2008
A husky dog is the natural choice for families looking for a huge dog which is mild in terms of temper, but yet, lively and sociable. Various breeds of husky dogs would include the popular Siberian and Alaskan husky. When choosing your husky dog, it is important to consider a couple of factors pertaining to your dog such as its general health at the time of adoption. We provide you with some knowledge on the things you need to consider when choosing your husky dog.

Most people would obtain their first husky dog from a breeder. Poor standards enforced by breeders can often lead to poor general health and even deformities in the husky dog. As such, when choosing your husky dog, it is important for you to choose from a list of qualified breeders. Your local vet would in this case be your best bet as he would be able to recommend to you an entire list of qualified, reputable breeders located within your vicinity of residence. Check with your vet the practices and standards of the breeder with your local vet before making your adoption.

Thereafter, it is important for you to examine the general health and physical well-being of your husky when choosing one. As working dogs, huskies are generally active dogs who welcome people with great enthusiasm. If the husky dog you are looking at is lifeless and bored, then something must be wrong. It could possibly be suffering from one of the many dog-related illnesses. Also, examine the huskies coat thoroughly. This should be healthy with no spots or allergies. The husky's coat should also be thick and thoroughly covered with fur. Color varies from breed to breed, with some breeds taking on a completely black appearance while others taking on a completely white appearance. In any case, a healthy coat of fur is necessary when choosing your husky dog.

Temperament testing is also another important point to look into when choosing your husky dog. Most reputable breeders place ratings on their husky dog's temperament. If this is absent, request your breeder to perform such a rating before purchasing your husky dog. While most husky dogs are largely friendly, mild tempered and sociable in nature, exceptions do exist, as in the case of all dogs. This is important especially if you have small children or other dogs at home. A bad tempered husky dog will result in much mess and misery around your home.

The above are some of the important things to look out for when choosing your husky dog. In all cases, it is definitely of utmost importance to assess your own ability to commit time to raising your Siberian husky before making that decision to purchase one. Raising a husky dog requires much commitment and individuals unsure of their commitment levels should never purchase a husky dog at the spur of the moment. Otherwise, if you are able to commit time and energy to raising your husky dog, observing the above mentioned guidelines will leave you with years of satisfaction with your husky dog.
