The Siberian Husky personality

The Siberian Husky personality


It’s the cutest of them all. The most playful, joyful, the most friendly and stubborn also the most amazing and interesting appearance combined with their big cute smile and shining eyes. Even if this sounds so wonderful doesn’t mean that all of us are meant to have a husky as a pet. It requires lots of care.

After learning more about the Siberian, many have decided to only admire from afar, while others can’t get enough of them. Many Siberian Huskies have become strays, ended up in dog shelters, injured or worse on the road, become the neighborhood nuisance, or abused and mistreated because the owner did not understand the breed. For these reasons, it is important for any potential owner to learn about the typical traits of the Siberian Husky before entering the challenging commitment of living with one. While capable of strong affection for his family, the Siberian Husky is also very friendly with strangers. So, if you want the fierce loyalty of a one-man dog . . . don’t buy a Siberian.The Siberian Husky is not a watch dog, although those ignorant of his true nature may be frightened by his appearance. If you want a dog with aggressive guard-dog instincts . . . don’t buy a Siberian.At least once a year Siberians shed their coats. If you like fur all over the house and in the very air you breathe, then fine. If, however, you value neatness at all times, then . . . don’t buy a Siberian.

Siberian Huskies have a natural proclivity for digging holes in backyards. If you take great pride in your landscaping efforts . . . don’t buy a Siberian.

Of all the shortcomings to be found in Siberians, the most dangerous to the pet owner is their tremendous desire to RUN. But the very first dash that a puppy makes across the road could be his last run, anywhere. A Siberian, for his own protection, should be kept confined or under control at all times. If you are one of those people who think it is cruel to kennel a dog, or keep him confined in his own backyard . . . don’t buy a Siberian.

The more time you spend with a Siberian the more you will understand that there is usually a logical explanation for most of their outlandish behaviors. While the Siberian will not submit quickly to your will and will insist that you prove yourself as a good and reliable leader, once you have earned his or her respect you will be rewarded for years to come.

If you have read this far, honestly feel that you qualify on all counts, and are still determined to own a Siberian, then we take great pleasure in welcoming you to the fold. Join the rest of us in the smug complacency of knowing that we own the most beautiful, the smartest, the most nearly ideal dog in the world . . . the SIBERIAN HUSKY

  1. Great story. When we bread our beauty next year I am going to make sure that every perspective owner will have to read this…it is so true…and right on point.

  2. Siberian’s are smart, sweet and have amazing personalities. After spending over a year with a Siberian in my life I could not imagine sharing my life with any other breed.

  3. I want a husky so bad and I know it is because of their independent thinking that I am in love with the breed. Thankfully I continue to read helpful articles like this one and I am keeping my head on straight. Getting a husky for now will have to wait for my gigantic back yard and excellent dog trainer!!!

  4. I’m a 1st time owner of a husky, Star. He is as beautiful as he is mischievous! He’s just gone one and as escaped on three occasions but not out the bak yard, when I’ve swopped hands of the lead I’ve missed the connection n he’s gone! But fortunately he always comes bak!!!! He lives in doors with me and is fine with it!! Once u win their respect their love is unconditional

    • What do you do exactly to win their respect? And how do you know you’ve won it? I know this sounds a bit stupid but i am also a first time owner and I’m just curious, thank you Suzi

  6. I’ll be honest, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I found my lily bear. I was 18, living in an apartment and she was 8 weeks old. Not going to lie, it was challenging with yoyr typical husky behaviors. The main one wanting to run, great escape artists. I must say, now at 26 and lily 7 years old she is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am always complimented on how well behaved and beautiful she is. I want another one! Lily has shown me just as much as I’ve shown her over the years. Most loyal pet I have ever have. I one day hope to own a few more. Lovey lily bear!
