Intelligent, strong willed, stubborn

Who love dogs? My Husky is my best friend, the best companion a girl could ask for, and her name is Khaleesi. (Where are my Game of Thrones fans at?!) She’s definitely a queen, always getting what she wants. She’s currently 4, but the first time I saw her she was only 8 weeks old, and that’s when I fell in love with her. One look into those beautiful blue eyes, and I knew I had to have her.

Huskies become very attached to their owners, if you’re gone for minutes they will miss you so much that they’ll yell and howl at you to let you know. They love to speak their mind and let you know how they feel, or what they need. Huskies are friendly dogs that are great with other dogs and children, very gentle. Though they will go after small animals like rats, and bunnies. It might be about the chase, or just thinking they’re playing with them. They are also pulling dogs so they need to release that energy by either playing (which is there favorite), or going on walks. They have thick coats of fur so they get hot easily, they shed a ton so you have to keep up with grooming, and they have natural oils in their fur so you only bathe them a couple times a year, but you have to brush them weekly. If you wear a lot of black, you might want to get use to husky hair being a part of your wardrobe.

Huskies are a smart but stubborn breed which makes them more difficult to train than other breeds, you have to let them know YOU are the alpha quickly (and don’t get me wrong they will definitely test you to see what they can get away with). They’re a lot of work to train/care for, so unless you have a lot of time and patience.. they might not be the breed for you.
