Can you tame a husky?

Huskies can be trained to be the tamest of dogs, when done properly and with enough time and effort.

Huskies (Siberian and Alaskan) were bred to run through the snowy north, as sled dogs. It is in their genetics to be responsive to human training, as well as a pecking order (alpha, beta, etc.)

Puppies ought to be left with their mothers for at least 12 weeks in order for them to learn proper behavioral lessons. This is the first step to ensuring a dog is tame; being with its mother teaches a puppy how to act appropriately and respect the pecking order. It also learns not to bite or be aggressive.

Socialization ought to take place following the first 10-12 weeks of a puppy's life. The more a dog is given the chance to interact with people, children, and other animals, the more comfortable it will become with similar situations. Situations involving aggressive dogs or young children that may harass the dog ought to be avoided.

However, most dogs can be trained to become tame, regardless of their history (such as shelter dogs). Huskies are responsive to kindness from their owners, and with proper training and rewarding, any dog can become tame. Dogs ought to be punished when they do something wrong, and rewarded when they act commendably.

Dogs are "man's best friend" for a reason, and huskies are no exception. If a husky is raised with love and care, it will return the favor tenfold.

Dog Breeding and Mating

We think our husky was successfully mated around May or April. This was her first heat so we aren't sure. What are the signs of pregnancy and what should we expect?

Your best bet is to contact your vet, who can tell you if your dog is pregnant by doing an ultrasound. The vet will perform the ultrasound for around $40 at 4 weeks gestation. While the ultrasound will not be an accurate indication of the number of pups to expect, it will definitely tell you if your bitch is pregnant.

For pregnancy, the first signs are usually swollen teets and tiny lumps begin to form under the teets after a couple of weeks.

The gestation period for dogs is 9 weeks but you must be prepared for early arrival. Towards the end of gestation, you should regularly take the bitch's temperature as it should drop shortly before she starts to deliver.

You bitch will find a dark, confined space to 'den' in. You must create on for her that is safe and quiet. Do not allow her to find her own as she may choose a spot that is dangerous or hard to access. Once she begins delivering, she will not want to move and may become aggressive towards you if you try. Your vet will be able to talk you through the delivery process and the problems to look out for.

Allowing a bitch to come to term in her first heat is not a good idea as the bitch is not fully developed physically or emotionally. This means that she may experience growth problems caused by the pregnancy, as her body is not fully developed, there would be a higher risk to life and she may also be unable or unwilling to look after her litter.

Siberian huskies don't get that large, they are normally medium size dogs. Males normally are 21-23 1/2 inches tall and weigh between 45-60 lbs, females 20-22 inches tall and weigh between 35-50 lbs. For info on huskies you can check here http://www.dogbreedinfo.com/siberianhusky.htm

  • Working Group; AKC recognized in 1930.
  • Ranging in size from 20 to 23 ½ inches tall at the shoulder and 35 to 60 pounds.
  • Sled dog.

There are different types of Husky dogs. So it depends upon the breed of Husky dog.Some examples are:-a) A female Siberian Husky dog grows: 20 to 22 inches.b) The Labrador Husky is a fairly large dog which can weigh between 60-100 pounds and grow between 23 - 26 inches.

Ok, there are three types of husky that I'm familiar with. There is the Alaskan Husky, which is the smallest and lightest boned. There is the Siberian Husky, which is by breed standard, a medium sized dog. Then there is the Canadian Husky, which is very tall and much larger.

It's also important to note, that there is the Malamute, which many people mistake for a Husky on site. They look a lot like a Siberian Husky only they are much larger (90 -110 ibs. range fully grown), tend to have a more brown/white or brownish-grey/white coat and they NEVER have blue or bi-colored eyes. Their eyes are always a shade of brown.

Ok, back to the huskies... ;)

The Siberian Husky is the breed that has become what most people (including television and movies) think of when you think of what a husky is. As I mentioned above, the breed standard defines this as a medium sized dog. This is important because overbreeding has led to examples of this dog not only being sickly and thin but sometimes far too large.

A well bred Siberian, meeting breed standards, should be:

Females: 40 - 50 ibs. fully grown

Males: 50 - 60 ibs. fully grown

I don't have the height in inches memorized, but they should appear solid to slim, but height/weight proportionate. So if they look proportionate and meet the weight guidelines than they are probably just right.

This height and weight prerequisite is important because the Chukchi (sp?) people, from Siberia, needed them to pull sleds long distances and a dog that was too heavy couldn't run for a long time. Like wise, a dog too tall couldn't get the right leverage to pull as part of a team. I don't need to explain why an undersized dog wouldn't do.

Important tip: If your looking to get a Siberian Husky from a breeder, look for a sled dog ranch. Any dog coming from this environment will be from proven ancestry, with a lower chance of genetic/health defect.

Then again, your going to spend a much longer time looking and pay a lot more.

Otherwise adopt from a local husky rescue group. This is an incredibly noble thing to do and some of the most wonderful examples I've seen have come from a rescue. Most of the huskies you'll find with these groups are either pure Siberians Huskies, Husky mixes and sometimes you'll find a unique dog that is park husky and part something entirely else.

Oh yeah, buy a copy of "Huskies for Dummies". This isn't your average dog and requires a great deal of understanding.

Hope this helps and enjoy this special breed!
Huskies are a medium size canine. There fur is thick making them look like a larger type but such is not the case. They do, however, possess stronger hereditary DNA than most dogs, making them wider in girth (more muscular) and stronger skeletons (notice the bigger paws and overall features). This is due to the evolutionary history of the breed--duty animals in the artic. They have strong personalities to match their strong DNA.
males weigh about 46 to 50 pounds and females about 38 to 42 pounds

What are the predators of a Siberian Husky and what are the huskies prey in the arctic?

The Husky breed is a domesticated animal. They were and are still bred as work animals so they do not per say have "predators". They are derived from the wolf family of canines so it is safe to say that the predators of wolves are the same to any canine. Wolves are at the higher end of there ecosystem, meaning they do not have many natural enemies. The only real threat to their kind is humans. Huskies, on the other hand, may have many other types of predators, but again, they are domesticated and are not generally found in the wild roaming about.
