• All About the Siberian Husky Dog Personality

    Husky owners should most of the general information about huskies and their personalities. But what exactly is included in the husky personality package?

    1. Hyperactivity – One of the most exposed traits of husky puppies, especially as puppies, is hyperactivity. If you already own a husky you may already know this from experience, and if you do not, you will find out just how hyper Siberian huskies can get.

    Siberian husky dogs originated from Siberia, being extremely hardworking sled dogs that are meant to withstand extremely harsh weather conditions. Siberian husky dogs are typically aggressive and quite rebellious, although can be quite friendly and loyal if properly trained.

    Nevertheless, Siberian husky dogs are also intelligent enough to perform some not so desirable actions such as digging a tunnel for escape, climbing over fences, and opening your refrigerator and eating the food inside. Preventing such bad behavior simply means occupying your dog with other activities to do during the day.

    Well behaved Siberian husky dogs will never go into a room without your permission. After acquiring a Siberian husky dog, in just a few weeks you should be able to substantially train your husky to do a number of things at your home

      Hi Folks, I’m a first time poster and am grateful to have this forum to seek answers to my questions.
      I have an 11 month old male Husky who has been raised as our family companion animal. He gets tons of free running exercise and is a happy, healthy dog.
      Our Husky demonstrates no objectionable behavioral characteristics, other then the usual puppy hyper activity and attempting to jump up on people when he first meets them. My understanding of the jumping up issue is that it represents a breed specific behavior and I am very attentive regarding this issue.
      What I’d like to ask specifically involves my concerns toward neutering him. I have performed considerable research on the subject prior to finding your site. All of which involved a good deal of controversy around the health and personality benefits of neutering any male dag. Therefore, I am left on the fence wondering whether or not to neuter and when to do it.
      In my heart, I do not want him to endure ‘any’ invasive operation. However if I were to see ‘real evidence’, that neutering him would improve his quality of life and longevity, I would certainly act upon such expert guidance.
      Thank you for taking the time to help me with this decision.
