How to Care for a Siberian Husky Properly
If you want a safe, friendly, noble pet with an imposing and elegant appearance, a Siberian husky is certainly the breed for you. This is one of the dogs that has kept the most similarities with the wolf , and are still used today to drag sleds and to accompany travellers and hunters in the most frigid regions of the world. With exceptional character this animal requires more care to stay healthy and happy, so we explain in OneHowTo.com how to care for a Siberian Husky appropriately.
Just as it happens when we adopt or acquire any dog or cat, it is important that as soon as possible we take our Siberian husky to the vet for a general review and to implement the first vaccines needed by the animal. These basic vaccines should not be overlooked if we want to protect our puppy from some serious diseases that could endanger their health and life, such as distemper or parvovirus.
An important aspect of caring for a Siberian Husky is its food. In the case of domestic pets, the best solution is good quality fortified feed selected according to the stage of the dog's life: puppy, adult or older dog. You should also consider choosing a special food in case your pet has a particular medical condition.
If your Siberian husky is a puppy, then they should eat four times a day if less than four months old. From this age up to eight months, the animal should have three meals a day. At 18 months they should eat twice a day and from then on just once a day will be enough to keep them nourished and healthy.
Keep in mind that the more they eat the more times they will need you, so during the first eighteen months of their life you should take them out at least twice a day so that he can go to the toilet. This frequency should be ideal for a large dog like a Siberian husky. Make sure these outings last at least 30 minutes (60 per day) in order to satisfy your dog completely.
To care for a Siberian Husky you must give it a good dose of daily exercise. It is a large dog that is genetically stronger and prepared to travel long distances, so activity is essential for this breed. Your dog will need at least 20 minutes of exercise (running, playing, not only walking) a day and it is important that you spend time on this task to keep him healthy and happy.
Also you should brush your dog at least once a week to avoid annoying knots, promote a clean coat and monitor the presence of fleas, parasites and ticks.
All these precautions should go hand in hand with a lot of love and attention for your pet, as the Siberian husky is a dog that needs love to grow up happy. Remember to provide all the attention they need to be healthy and happy every day.
