Siberian huskies are pretty good dogs. They do have very thick fur that needs to be groomed weekly. Predatory instincts are strong and if would not be wise to have them around smaller animals. Huskies also are very active and need alot of exercise.

When I was a young girl I had a Siberian Huskie along with several other dogs. Compared to a poodle, border collie and beagle I felt my Huskie was easy to care for. Compared to short-haired dog breeds a Huskie will take more grooming but if you start them out young they will enjoy their daily brushings!

Huskies are no more needy than any other specialty breed. There are some dogs that are harder to take care of, some that are easier. Huskies are very energetic, need lots of room, and are adventurous. They are also loving, hard-working, beautiful dogs.

Huskies are a very active breed of dog. They tend to be jumpers and diggers when left in back yards. Because this breed is use to colder climates, they should be kept indoors in warmer climates.

No. They're not any more difficult to take care of compared to other breeds of the same height and weight.

If you mean difficult to train, then yes, they can be. Make sure to start early. If you mean feeding, then yes, they are large dogs and eat a lot.


Answer by  RunawayJim (964)

They are about the same as any other dog, but they need lots of exercise and room to move around in. They also shed a lot, which is the only hard part in my mind. You have to brush them a lot.

Huskies are about the same to take care of as other dog breeds because taking care of any breed can be hard- it doesn't matter what kind of dog it is.
