Compared to other breeds their size, Huskies eat relatively little. That’s because they were bred to be super efficient sled dogs who could travel long distances without needing to bring along a lot of food. If you live in a warm-weather climate, schedule walks for early morning or night when the weather is cooler. (You wouldn’t do so well running in the middle of the day in 90 degrees in a heavy coat, either.) If you’re outside for a longer period of time in warm weather with your Husky (such as at a picnic), make sure the dog has enough shade and water. It’s not recommended to shave your Husky. Its coat helps regulate its temperature. Plus the haircut puts them at risk for sunburn.
Huskies are curious by nature and are prone to running away. To contain the escape artist that is the Siberian Husky, you should keep them on leash if you’re in an area that is not secure. If you let them run loose, make sure it is in an area with a fence that is at least six feet high. If the fence isn’t built on concrete, it should have underground reinforcements.
