Kugshas, also known as the American Husky or Amerindian Malamute, are beautiful wolf-like dogs and are generally bred as working dogs. They originate from Pennsylvania and are exceptionally intelligent, but high-need dogs. From a young age, you will need to provide them with plenty of things to not only exercise their body but their mind too. If you want a well-rounded Kugsha that gets along with people and pets, you also need to do everything in your power to socialize them from birth. A Kugsha is a beautiful dog and well worth the time it takes to look after them.
The most effective way in which to have your Kugsha grow up to enjoy the company of other pets, children, and people, is to ensure they get as much time around them as possible. This activity might be tricky as you need to work it around your everyday life, but you will enjoy that it doesn’t cost anything except an hour of your time. You can also socialize your Kugsha in any weather with them on a leash, enjoying toys and treats. After several months of socialization, you should have minimal or no problems with your dog’s social behavior.
While you might not enjoy the high price tag and challenging difficulty level that comes with puppy school, you will enjoy the well-behaved pup at the other end. What’s more, it’s a beneficial activity that only requires an hour of your time once a week for around eight weeks. At a puppy school, your Kugsha can meet with other puppies of similar ages then learn valuable skills they need to become well-rounded dogs. Most facilities also only require you to bring your dog, a leash, and some treats. Learn all sorts of useful skills that will work wonders for your dog’s behavior.
Kugshas thrive in an outdoor environment. They like to walk, run, hike, go bicycling with you, and do all sorts of fun things. However, the weather doesn’t allow for outdoor activities at every time of the year. Therefore, you need to come up with fun games you can do inside that keeps them busy and stops their destructive tendencies. Depending on the games you come up with, they can have a moderate price tag. You also only need to set aside an hour of your time and have plenty of tidbits and treats on-hand. Any game you play with your Kugsha will quickly become their favorite as it enables them to use their intelligence and engage with you.
If you leave your Kugsha to their own devices, they can be exceptionally destructive. Nothing is safe – not even couch cushions. Therefore, you need to ensure you have plenty of chew toys around your house to grab your dog’s attention. You may like to invest in a toy box to house them all, too.
To help your pooch be dog-friendly from the beginning, make a point of taking them to a dog park often. While you might only have half an hour to spare, that can be all it takes to drill into your Kugsha’s mind that dogs are friends, not foes. It will also help them to burn off energy.
A Kugsha is a dog that’s better suited to experienced dog owners who have had dealings with this breed before. They require a lot of time, grooming, training, and attention. They are also not suitable for people with small children or apartment dwellers. In saying that, anyone who owns a Kugsha will tell you how pawsitively delightful they are to own. You will never regret welcoming a Kugsha into your family.
