Caring For Husky Dogs - The Dos and Don'ts - Articles Surfing
Husky dogs have often been looked upon as one of the most popular choices whenever the need for a family dog arises. Gentle and lively, the husky dog is suitable even for families with many pets or small children. However, as with all other pets, husky dogs require care in order to ensure their physical well-being and safety. For families who are currently adopting or have the intention to adopt the husky dog as a pet, several dos and don'ts should be observed.
1. Bring your husky to a vet for regular checkups. Like all other pets, husky dogs require regular checkups in order to ensure that their health needs are met. Vets dispense valuable advice regarding various issues of your husky dog. Moreover, dog-related illnesses are best cured if detected early. Regular checkups are thus the best prevention against various dog-related illnesses.
2. Take measures to safeguard your husky. Being active dogs, huskies are relatively prone to getting lost. Inability to fence your garden high enough would result in your husky leaping over the fence and running away from home. Given the athletic nature of husky dogs, it would be relatively difficult for you to relocate your pet if it manages to run away from home. When taking your husky on a walk, make sure he is leashed to prevent similar runaway incidents from occurring.
3. Train your husky. While they are gentle dogs, huskies are known to be extremely jumpy and can carry out a whole lot of mischievous acts around the house such as digging potholes in your garden. Fortunately, the husky is an intelligent dog and is relatively easy to train. You can do the training yourself or engage the services of a professional dog trainer. The basics of husky training would include toilet training, social skills as well as basic discipline around the house.
4. Get a companion for your husky. Huskies are dogs that are used to living in packs. The choice of companion for your husky can either include another husky or another pet such as a cat. However, companionship should be introduced when the husky is a puppy to facilitate early familiarization and interaction.
1. Get a husky if you are looking for a guard dog. Do not be deceived by their huge size for huskies are gentle dogs and are known to be friendly even to strangers.
2. Overfeed your husky. Like all other dogs, overfeeding is often the cause for obesity and can lead to various health-related problems amongst dogs. Do not be deceived by their size with regards to their food intake. Should you have any questions regarding the proportions of food which you should feed your husky, never hesitate to consult your vet for professional advice.
The list of dos and don'ts for raising a husky are not limited to what is mentioned above. In any case, it is important to note that time, effort and commitment are of the essence as far as raising a husky is concerned. Only get a husky if you are able to commit to raising it up.
