Siberian Husky

The intelligent Siberian Husky thrives on human company, but needs firm, gentle training right from puppy hood. These are dogs bred to run, and should have a good run at least a couple of times weekly. They tend to be friendly with people, including children. They also get along with other dogs, especially ones they are raised with. They don’t tend to bark as a rule but they do howl. All Siberian Huskies shed. Most Huskies will blow their undercoat twice a year (usually before a big season change).
