In this article, we will write What kind of problems do Huskies have and how to solve them. This can be referred to as behavior and health problems.
Siberian Huskies health problems
Siberian Husky can have cataracts, progressive retinal atrophy, and corneal dystrophy. So, our advice is, if you are buying a husky puppy, be sure to ask the breeder for confirmation of hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, hypothyroidism, Von Wilbrand’s disease, and confirmation from an ophthalmologist that the eyes are in good condition.
Siberian huskies behavior problems
The Siberian Husky is a beautiful, peaceful, friendly, but again independent dog. They are extremely strong and belong to working dogs. Although they are extremely popular, they are not recommended for everyone.
DOES THE SIBERIAN HUSKY DOG BARK?
This breed of dog is extremely vocal. They rarely bark, but loooooove to howl. That’s why they may not be exactly the neighbors ’favorite, and they’re also not the best dogs for an apartment. So only a well-trained Husky is suitable for living in an apartment.
HOW DO THEY TREAT STRANGERS?
As I mentioned earlier, this breed is friendly to everyone, including strangers. They love meeting new people and you won’t have any problems if friends come to visit you often.
Of course, this applies to a well-socialized Husky dog.
HOW DO THEY TREAT CHILDREN?
The Siberian Husky is a good family dog that adores children and especially loves to play and sleep with children. Huskies are a good alternative to a soft and comfortable pillow.
So this breed can be a great choice if you are an active family with children.
However, as with any breed, I advise that if you have a small child be sure to monitor how he treats the dog. Most dogs do not tolerate the best of certain situations.
The dog is often aggressive in situations where:
- shows signs of dominance,
- something bites his ears and tail,
- pulls it by the ears and tail,
So monitor the interaction and prevent the unintended consequences of inappropriate behavior on both sides.
HOW DO THEY TREAT OTHER DOGS?
Siberian Husky dogs get along well with other dogs. They are sociable and friendly so you won’t have any problems if you own several dogs. However, they need to be socialized early like all other dogs.
They also have a more pronounced predatory instinct and will often run after smaller animals.
DO THEY DO DAMAGE AROUND THE HOUSE?
Extremely energetic breeds, including Huskies, can be very destructive. They need to be stimulated well physically and mentally.
Without enough stimulation it should be noted that they will be destructive:
- in the house
- and out.
So Huskies are certainly not a breed that you can leave alone all day in the yard. These are dogs that require a lot of care.
Also, destructive behaviors of the dog include:
- chewing things,
If you already have to go and leave the dog alone I definitely advise you to try to prevent or alleviate the destructive behaviors of chewing and digging around the house and outside using music therapy.
Why music therapy?
Dog music is a method that relaxes dogs and makes them calmer. It helps dog owners around the world with destructive behavior problems. But how?
Dog music used in music therapy calms the dog’s nervous system and helps him relax.
IS THE SIBERIAN HUSKY AN AGGRESSIVE DOG?
The Siberian Husky does not belong to aggressive dog breeds. These are extremely friendly dogs towards strangers, other animals, and children. Aggression is not their natural behavior.
Although Huskies are not aggressive they have a more pronounced hunting instinct and will always run after smaller animals so keep an eye on this fact when walking.
If the dog is aggressive towards, humans and other dogs then you are definitely wrong somewhere. To avoid problems socialize the dog early and I advise you to train your husky.
