Siberian Husky |Siberia|

Siberian Husky |Siberia|

The Siberian Husky is the fastest of the Sled Dog breeds and matches its speed with endurance, determination, and a competitive edge. They are a favorite for dog sledding and combine their working abilities with exceptional temperaments. Due to their lovely nature, they have become popular as companion animals, but they require extensive, high-octane exercise and should not be considered unless that requirement can be met. Not surprisingly, they are very powerful dogs on a leash, they have a high small-prey drive, and they are notorious for escaping. They are also excellent diggers and often like to swim.

History

Siberian Huskies are directly descended from the ancient Chukchi Dogs. Originating in Central Asia, the Chukchi people migrated northeast and settled on the remote Chukchi Peninsular of far eastern Siberia, where they built their livelihoods around reindeer. Their dogs were vital components of their lives, pulling sleds, guarding and herding livestock, protecting their homes, and offering companionship. Huskies owe their modern development to Leonard Seppala, Elizabeth Richter, Harry Wheeler, Eva Seeley, and Lorna Demidoff, all early breeders. During World War II, Huskies were used extensively by the American military for search and rescue, and it was around the same time that the breed arrived in England.

Siberian Huskies need a lot of grooming, particularly when they are shedding. It is a good idea to get puppies used to being groomed at an early age.
