Husky health

    As a responsible and compassionate Husky owner, you obviously want to make sure your guy or girl is in tip-top health. Regular visits to the vet for checkups are important, but you won’t usually need to visit the vet with any major problems as often as with other breeds of dogs. However, there are a couple of genetic health problems that you need to be aware of in order to keep your Siberian Husky as healthy as can be.

    Husky humping

    Nonsexual mounting of other dogs is generally a dominance, control, or challenge behavior, although when practiced by puppies it’s primarily about play and social learning, beginning as early as 3-4 weeks. Mounting of humans is strictly nonsexual; it may be about control, it can be attention-seeking, and it can be a stress-reliever. High hormone levels and normal sexual responses to other unneutered dogs are different from the kind of “problem mounting” that embarrasses you in front of your in-laws or boss when they visit!

    Husky good with children

    Siberian huskies and Alaskan Huskies are pack animals, and generally love people, children included. A lot of the relationship between your children and your Husky depends on the nature of the children. Careless and cruel children don't deserve a pet of any kind. Never buy a pet to teach a child responsibility. You're the adult; you have the responsibility of caring for the pet.

    Are Huskies good with other pets?

    Huskies have a very strong prey-drive (meaning they instinctively hunt other animals); and if they are not socialized to smaller animals as puppies they will go after most small animals, and even some large animals they encounter. The Husky drive to hunt can be a problem in living together with other animals – especially creatures like cats and rabbits, who tend to bolt when startled. Your Husky likes nothing better than a good chase, even if he doesn’t intend to harm the other creature!
