Goberian Breed History

The hybrid called the Goberian is a new breed of dog that does not have a detailed history, though the two breeds that combine to create the breed have long histories. It is said that the Golden Retriever was developed during the Victorian era and its ancestry may include the Tweed Water Spaniel, Yellow Retriever, Wavy-coated Retriever, Flat-coated Retriever and Red Setter. Though it is generally accepted that Dudley Majoribanks, Lord Tweedmouth was the person who produced the first dogs of the breed that became known as the Golden Retriever, documents suggest that the breed already existed prior to his breeding efforts at his Scotland estate. The American Kennel Club officially recognized the Golden Retriever as a breed in 1932. The Siberian Husky was developed in Russia by an indigenous tribe known as the Chukchi. Original Siberian Huskies or their ancestors were likely used for hunting as well as pulling the sleds of the nomadic people with whom they lived. This allowed for faster and farther travel. These dogs were a significant part of the lives of the Chukchi and were bred for energy, endurance and companionship. In the early 1900’s dogs of the breed were brought to Alaska. In the winter of 1925 a diphtheria epidemic occurred in Nome, Alaska, putting everyone who lived in the area at risk. To deliver the necessary serum to the people in need, 20 sled drivers with over 100 dogs (mainly Siberian Huskies) made a 658-mile trip to obtain the necessary medication and bring it back. While the trip should have taken 25 days, with the dogs it was completed in under six, despite very difficult conditions. In 1930 the breed was recognized by the American Kennel Club.

Goberian Breed Appearance

The Goberian is medium to large in size, averaging from 50 to 90 pounds. Dogs of the hybrid will often have blue eyes like those of a Husky, but are also seen with the Golden Retriever’s brown eyes. It is common for the Goberian to have a rounded head in proportion to his body and ears that hang down. His body will typically resemble that of a Golden Retriever while his legs and tail will appear more like that of a Husky. His double coat will offer him protection from weather extremes and can be seen in black, white, brown, gray, cream and golden.

Goberian Breed Maintenance

The coat of the Goberian will require minimal maintenance; brushing him two to three times per week will keep his fur healthy and free of debris. Bathing of your Goberian should occur as needed using a dog shampoo. As with all dogs, his teeth should be brushed at least three times per week to ensure his long term dental health. It is also recommended that his ears be checked and wiped clean each week in order to avoid moisture buildup and infection. The nails of your Goberian should be trimmed as needed. An active dog can also injure his footpads; if you see him limping, this should be on of the first places you check.

Goberian Temperament

The Goberian is intelligent and friendly and will typically enjoy being around people. Dogs of the hybrid will usually be gentle as well as loyal and affectionate. While at times independent, the Goberian will seek to please his humans. The Goberian will be alert and excel as a watchdog, barking to let you know of any unusual activity. The hybrid will get along well with children as well as other pets in the household. Early socialization is important to avoid any behavior issues and the majority of Goberians are easy to train.

Goberian Activity Requirements

The Goberian will be very active, requiring at least 60 minutes of exercise per day to remain healthy and well-behaved. Exercise can include walking, jogging, hiking, playing and trips to the dog park. If the Goberian does not get the exercise he needs it can lead to behavior problems like digging, chewing and barking. Dogs of the hybrid will do best in a home with a fenced-in yard. Due to their high level of activity, living in an apartment can be challenging for the Goberian.
