This breed is for active owners who love adventures. My Huskita is the perfect mix of loyal and independent. Grooming is only crazy during the change of seasons. Surprisingly their coat does not need to be washed often and is pretty waterproof. Mine is a female and has showed aggression towards other females. Make dogs, children, and strangers not a problem. She hardly barks but will talk to you.(love it) she’s not much of a fetch or go for a walk breed in my opinion. Challenge these dogs as they will challenge you to be a better owner/trainer! I currently own 6 dogs on a 10 acre property with a creek. This type of yard is necessary if you don’t plan on constantly going out. Also the hunting prowess of these dogs is not mentioned enough. If you hike you will notice them running a perimeter around you while being hypersensitive to any small animals/noises.
