Introduction

One of the most pawpular dog breeds in the United States, Siberian Huskies are as friendly and mischievous as they are beautiful. These gorgeous canines require serious commitment, though, and thus are not recommended for first-time dog parents. However, if you're willing to adopt a more active lifestyle and vacuum up clumps of fur at least twice a week, you'll find that Huskies make woofderful family companions. While their friendliness and rare barking make them lousy watchdogs, they're always up for an outdoor adventure, and are puptastic workout buddies. Just as with any other breed, make sure you're prepared before you let a Siberian Husky pup into your life!

Home Preparation

Huskies are curious canines who will get into everything they can if your home hasn't been puppy-proofed prior to their arrival. For your pup's health and safety, be sure to move all potential hazards such as toiletries, cleaning supplies, and electrical cords out of reach. Secure your yard with a fence that's at least six feet high and extends underground—Huskies are excellent escape artists who can jump and love to dig. If you live in a warm climate, have an air-conditioned room that your Husky can retreat to when it gets too hot. Don't forget to go shopping for your pupper's things, too. Basic supplies include a high-quality puppy food, food and water dishes, ID tags, a harness and/or collar, a leash, grooming tools, toys, a bed, a crate, and baby gates.

Create a Schedule

Having a schedule will help your Husky pup adjust to their new life and become toilet trained much faster. Set times for when puppy will be fed, walked, and taken outside for potty breaks. Your pup will need three meals per day, and to go to the bathroom in the morning, after meals, after naps, and before bedtime. Very young puppies may need to relieve themselves in the middle of the night, too. When it comes to grooming, weekly brushings will help keep your Husky's skin and coat in furrific condition. Expect to spend more time cleaning up shed fur when your pooch “blows” their coat, which happens ruffly twice a year. Be sure to make time for exercise and training as well, as these are vital to your pup’s health and happiness!

What to Expect the First Week

Getting a new puppy is a big change, so expect the first week to be an adjustment for everyone in the household, especially your Siberian Husky. Since these pups are pack dogs, ease your new addition into their new home by spending plenty of time with. Remember to also provide your pup with chew toys as they will be teething during this time. Siberian Huskies are not for everyone, but they make pawsome companions when properly cared for!
