Siberian huskies have been bred in harsh environments and, unsurprisingly, are easy to care for. With excess nutrition and lack of exercise, they are prone to obesity. These are dogs bred for running and should do good work at least a couple of times a week. Siberian huskies are generally hardy dogs and often live up to 14 years old.
Early training and socialization are important for the Siberian Husky to get used to people. These dogs are comfortable in the company of a person and like to work, even if they just accompany the owner on a run. Siberian Huskies do not guard dogs, but they usually bark in case of danger. Left alone for a long time, they like to dig and chew, or they can howl so that all neighbors can hear. Siberian huskies love tobogganing and skiing.
Grooming is necessary a couple of times a week, more often during molting. The shorter coat of the Siberian Husky is less smooth than other northern dogs.
