Can Siberians stand the hot weather?

I live in the South where it is very hot.


Answer by  raudf (23)

They can, as long as you make sure they have plenty of cold clean water for drinking and shade. It also helps if you exercise them early of the morning when the temperature is cooler and bring them into the house during the hottest parts of the day.

Even though Siberians are meant for colder states like New England or anywhere else there is snow, as long as you keep their hair short and give them plenty of water they will do fine. But you will have to take really amazing care of the dog so that way it doesn't die of heat stroke.

Siberians husky's are very fexable when it comes to weather. but they do prefer to have cold weather. if you do get one then you should always keep enough water handy because they will be thirsty alot in hot climate and keep a hose pipe on and cool the hound off during hot days.

They can but they shouldn't be out in over one hundred degree weather. It is like wearing a fur coat for them on top of the fur they already have.

Siberian huskys can tolerate the warm weather in the South. Their thick coat actually insulates and protects them from the cold as well as the heat! As with any animal that one plans to keep outside, make sure it has shelter from the direct sun light and a lot of water.

Yes, Siberians will do well in the hot weather. Their thick coat will isolate them from the heat. Do not cut of their hair because of the hot weather. They will shed their coats about twice a year. They do not sweat like humans but do need water and shade.

My father owned several Siberian Huskies. We live in NJ, where the summers can get extremely hot and very humid. Our dogs always did fine. They will shed a lot and need to be brushed often.
