Did you know - in 1925, a pack of huskies saved several people from dying from diphtheria in a blizzard? They delivered several vials of serum on their sledge through the bitter cold in Nome, Alaska. Powerful, athletic, intelligent, charming, and a dog with the gift of the gab, Huskies, are one of India's most loved breeds, and rightfully so! These aristocrats of the dog world can do almost anything, anything but lazing around all day.

Originally bred to hunt, pull sledges, and guard villages, Huskies, were developed by the Chukchi people of Siberia. They hunted and pulled sledges during the day and guarded at night - which means they were on duty 24/7. Huskies today find themselves in apartments and houses engaging in activities far less than their capabilities. As a result, they've unfortunately garnered the rep of being destructive, too loud, and aggressive. In short, a bored husky = a destructive husky.

Huskies are one the hardiest breeds out there - second only to the Indie. However, like with any dog, nutritious, wholesome, and balanced meals are key to ensuring they stay healthy throughout their life.

Oftentimes, huskies can suffer from hip dysplasia and cataracts due to indiscriminate backyard breeding. Hence, it is essential to ensure that once you get your husky from a certified breeder, you run all necessary tests at the veterinarian to rule out any underlying health issue that might cause hindrance later on.

Oh, that tail is fluffy, alright! As charismatic as it looks, a Husky's coat requires much attention from both the pet parent and the groomer. Huskies shed all year round, which means daily brushing and de-shedding is an absolute must.

In addition to this, they require a weekly ear clean and monthly bathing. If your Husky lives in the city and is indoors most of the time, you might want to trim their nails once a month to avoid bad posture.

How many hours can you run? 1? 3? 5? A husky can run up to 7-8 hours. When you have that kind of power and energy, imagine having to sit around all day after a short walk around the block. Huskies require a minimum of 4 hours of aerobic exercise every day - this can be in the form of running, hiking, swimming, flyball, agility, scent work, fetch etc.

Always remember, huskies HATE sitting idle. They much rather be using their body than laze about all day, and when that's not possible, they'd enjoy using their mind through interactive puzzle toys and obedience training. Since Huskies are independent by nature, getting them to listen to you is quite the task, but it isn't impossible—all it takes is time, patience, effort, consistency, and a ton of positive reinforcement.
