6 Questions to Ask Before Getting a Husky

Here are some of the most important questions to ask yourself to determine if a husky is the right fit for you AND if YOU are the right fit for a Husky.

Huskies are good pets, but only if you can confidently answer yes to the below questions.

We don’t recommend getting a Husky unless you can answer yes to all questions.

  1. Are you able to provide regular exercise and mental stimulation? Huskies are a high-energy breed that requires a significant amount of physical and mental exercise on a daily basis. Make sure you understand a Husky’s exercise needs and the destructive consequences if you don’t meet them. e.g. Adult huskies thrive on at least 1 hour of exercise per day. 🏃🏽‍♀️
  2. Are you willing to put in the time and effort to train and socialize a Husky? Huskies are a highly independent breed, and they can be stubborn and difficult to train. They require a consistent and positive training approach, as well as plenty of patience and dedication. Socialization is also crucial for huskies, as it helps them become well-adjusted and well-behaved canine citizens! 😇
  3. Are you prepared for the shedding and grooming needs of a husky? Huskies have a thick, double coat that sheds heavily, especially during the spring and fall. This means that they require regular brushing to keep their coat and skin healthy and to minimize the amount of hair left around your home. They also require regular bathing and grooming to maintain their coat.
  4. Are you able to commit to the Husky for its entire lifespan (10-14 years)? Huskies have a lifespan of around 10-14 years, and they require a significant commitment of time, energy, and financial resources. They will be a part of your family for many years, and you need to be prepared to make that commitment. ❤️
  5. Are you prepared for the husky’s independent nature? Huskies are an independent breed, which means they can be strong-willed and may not always be eager to please. This can lead to issues with obedience and training. Patience is absolutely key!
  6. Are you prepared for an extremely vocal breed? Huskies are known for being vocal and they may bark, howl, cry, and whine frequently. This can be a challenge for some people, especially if they live in an apartment or a neighborhood with close neighbors.

If you answered no to any of the above questions, it’s possible to change your answer to a yes by learning first from our how-to guides:

So, Should You Get a Husky?

Are huskies good for first time owners? Yes, but only if you answered yes to all of the quiz questions. They can be a dream if you are willing to put in the effort. If not, they will almost certainly be a nightmare.

Huskies are majestic, beautiful, and loving dogs that can make great companions. However, they require a lot of time, energy, and financial resources to be properly cared for.

Before getting a husky, it’s important to consider these questions and make sure that you’re prepared for the unique challenges and responsibilities that come with owning this breed.

If you’re willing to make the commitment, a husky can be an incredibly rewarding pet.
