Why are huskies so stubborn?

As you know, huskies can be pretty damn stubborn at times! But why are they this way? Is it just their nature, or is there something else going on? Let’s take a look at some of the possible reasons behind your husky’s stubbornness.

Independent Nature

One reason that huskies may be more stubborn than other dog breeds is because of their independent nature. Huskies were originally bred to be working dogs, and as such, they’re used to doing things on their own.

This independence can make them seem headstrong and stubborn at times, but it also means that they’re more likely to follow through on tasks once they’ve been given a command.

So, there is a fine line between your husky doing whatever they want and doing what you want. Training your husky puppy is key.

High Intelligence

Another possible reason for husky stubbornness is their high intelligence. Huskies are one of the most intelligent dog breeds, and they often use this intelligence to figure out ways to get what they want.

For example, if you tell your husky to “sit” or “come here” but he doesn’t want to, he may use his cunning to find a way around it. This can be frustrating for owners, but it’s just another manifestation of your husky’s smarts.

Final Thoughts

While huskies may be stubborn at times, there are usually reasons behind their behavior. In most cases, their stubbornness is simply a result of their independent nature or high intelligence.

As long as you’re patient and consistent with your commands, your husky will eventually come around.
