The gentle nature and liveliness of the husky makes it the choice of pet for families searching for a long term companion. Yet, care of this magnificent dog is often something neglected as we go about our busy day to day lives. Like all dogs, huskies require care and attention. Dedicated care and attention for your husky is the only way to derive a satisfying and healthy relationship with your pet. We list here, 4 tips on taking care of your husky.
It is important to pay attention to your husky's health needs. Do so by scheduling regular visits to your local vet. At a puppy's age, be sure to vaccinate your husky against a variety of dog-related illnesses. This is important as failure to do so could possibly result in grave consequences in time to come. Also, it is important get it checked on a regular basis for hip dysplasia when your husky has reached the age of six. Huskies in general are typically prone to this illness especially if they do not have adequate amounts of protein and fat in their diet. In all cases, vets provide valuable advice regarding a huge variety of topics covering nutritional and training needs. Thus, visits to the vet are necessary to ensure that your husky's health is at its peak.
You should also take precautions to prevent your husky from running away from your home by taking the necessary measures. Huskies are active dogs with strong muscles with the ability to dig relatively deep holes as well as the ability to jump over fences. Make sure all fences are secured deep into the ground and that fences are high enough to prevent possible escapes from your home. Huskies are known to run great distances only to find themselves get lost far from home when they actually do escape.
In addition, take your husky out for regular exercises. These dogs are used to wide open areas and require an ample amount of space for physical activities. You could take your husky for a walk or engage it in simple games such as a game of 'catch'. Exercise prevents obesity and develops your husky's physical strength. Health-related problems are known to arise for inactive huskies. Even better, games promote great owner-pet relationships allowing the husky to grow closer to you as well as be integrated into the neighborhood in which it lives in.
Last of all, it would be necessary to train your husky. While huskies are mild tempered dogs, they can be relatively mischievous. Fortunately, they are relatively easily to train. Training can be done yourself. Alternatively, you could engage the services of a professional dog trainer. Skills which are necessary include toilet training and social skills. Training your husky would be a worthwhile long term investment by ensuring that your husky does not get into too much mischief in and around the house.
Taking care of your husky is something which requires patience, commitment and effort. In any case, those who are able to put in such commitments would be amply rewarded with a great time with their huskies for years to come.
