The Siberian Husky Dog: Playful And Affectionate

Aug 7, 2008
Dated back to earlier times, the Chukchi tribes from northeastern Asia were the first to breed Siberian Husky dogs. It was during 1909 when these sleigh dogs were brought to Alaska for the first time in history to compete in the All-Alaska Sweepstakes race, where they drew the attention of the Alaskan dog breeders for their great running abilities. The American Kennel Club (AKC) offered recognition to these dogs in 1930. Eight years after this recognition, the Siberian Club of America was instituted.

Siberian Husky dogs have a pleasant personality. Their gentle attitude may be inherited from their ancestors' environments since Chukchi people raised their dogs with great respect, housed them within family atmosphere and inspired their children to play with these dogs. This style of breeding is still reflected with a special charming appeal in the Siberian Husky dogs of today. An alert and intelligent dog with an adaptable personality, the Siberian Husky is a wonderful companion to people of all ages and different interests.

Although Siberian Husky dogs possess a strong fondness for the family they belong to, the dogs cannot be considered a one master dog. The dog is not at all afraid of strangers, rather offer greetings to the guest. Hence, it is not usually classified as a watchdog, although Siberian dogs may show their violence involuntarily.

If you are looking for a one master dog, the Siberian Husky dog is not a good choice for you, although they maintain their loyalty and affection for the family. Not being afraid of strangers, these dogs are not considered as a good watchdog. However, they may turn out to be violent sometimes. Most commonly, they show their interest of making friendship with new guests. They can socialize nicely with dogs from other breeds, while maintaining their dignified, friendly attitude and magnificent decorum. But the dog is proven to be defensive if attacked.

Empowered with their strong hunting instinct such as swiftness, sneakiness and great tolerance skills, Siberian Husky dogs show their voracious attitude towards small house animals like squirrels, birds, cats, rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs and can cause serious harm to them. So the owner of a Siberian Husky must maintain enough precaution if he plans to raise small animals together with a Siberian Husky. Otherwise, the dog may promote a mess in and around the home.

Siberian Husky dogs require a little attention for good grooming care. These dogs have a default nature to stay clean. Covered with a dense coat of profuse volume, this beautiful dog sheds its coat once each year. Siberian Husky dogs have a special inclination for digging holes as their favorite pastime. The dogs need a smaller amount of food compared to their size. It is believed that this characteristic had been developed as a result of the Chukchis breeding style since those people preferred to feed their dogs with the smallest possible amount.

Their intense craving to run sets Siberian Husky dogs apart from other breeds concerning safety. Since earlier times, these dogs had a strong instinct to run and they enjoy it overwhelmingly, but this practice may turn out to be life threatening in the context of modern city life. You can easily assume what can happen if the dog runs through the busy roads.

So the owner must keep their dog in confinement at all times in order to ascertain its safety. If someone is not very comfortable with the idea of confinement, the Siberian Husky is not a good choice for them.
