They Need A Lot Of Maintenance

Huskies need a lot of maintenance in regards to the amount of hair they can shed. Not only do they shed a lot of hair on a daily basis, but they also shed their entire undercoat more than once in a year. If you have a Siberian Husky at home, you can expect a lot of hair on your carpet, sofa sets, and also in corners. To avoid a lot of shedding, experts suggest combing its coat with a heavy-duty comb every day to pull out the loose hair. This will prevent the hair from falling everywhere in the house.

A Siberian Husky Hates Heat

Just like its cousins – Alaskan Husky and Alaskan Malamute, Siberian Husky also hates too much heat. It is not recommended to get this breed if you live in a place with temperatures above 25 degrees Celsius. During summers, it is best to keep them indoors in air-conditioned or cool spaces and also to postpone exercising too early morning or late evenings.

Huskies Can Escape Real Fast

Siberian Huskies can run at a speed of 40 kph. They have high endurance and even more energy levels. It is best to keep them on a leash; else they might just run away. They can even jump fences at high as 5 feet tall. But if you train your husky well, they are unlikely to run away from you.
