Did you know that Siberian huskies helped prevent a diphtheria epidemic in 1925 and served the U.S. Army’s Arctic Search and Rescue Unit during World War II? Did you also know that they make great pets? Author Dr. Deb M. Eldredge, DVM, describes the breed as “well-built, efficient running machines,” initially bred to pull sleds across snowy terrain. This, she says, makes them an ideal partner for work and exercise. That partnership, however, does require a commitment to an extraordinary level of exercise over the dog’s 15-year lifespan. “Siberian Huskies: How to Be Your Dog’s Best Friend” covers this and more, from selecting a husky and prepping your home, to general care tips like feeding, grooming, training and healthcare. With this comprehensive guide, you and your husky will be off and running in no time.
Excerpt from the Book:
“Siberian husky pups are outrageously cute. They’re active, amusing, active, funny, active, energetic, and did I mention active? You’ll need to expend a fair amount of time exercising a young Siberian. Otherwise, it will quickly decide to amuse and exercise itself. ... You can wear out a Chihuahua pup with a walk around a small yard, but your Sibe puppy will need to walk around several long blocks! In addition to exercising your husky, you’ll need to spend extra time training, socializing, loving and playing with your new pup. You want to develop a strong bond to balance the independent nature of a Siberian husky.”
