The Siberian Husky has been described as a behavioral representative of the domestic dog's forebear, the
wolf, exhibiting a wide range of its ancestors' behavior.  They are known to howl rather than bark. If the dog
is trained right it can make a great family pet. The frequency of kenneled Siberian Huskies, especially for
racing purposes, is rather high, as attributed through the history of the breed in North America. They are
affectionate with people, but independent. A fifteen-minute daily obedience training class will serve well for
Siberian Huskies. Siberians need consistent training and do well with a positive reinforcement training
program. They rank 45th in Stanley Coren's The Intelligence of Dogs, being of average working/obedience
intelligence. They tend to run because they were at first bred to be sled dogs. Owners are advised to
exercise caution when letting their Siberian Husky off the leash as the dog could be miles away before
looking around and realizing their owner is nowhere in sight. They also get bored easily, so playing with toys
or throwing the ball at least once a day is essential. Failure to give them the attention or proper exercise they
need can result in unwanted behavior, such as excessive howling, marking, chewing on furniture, or crying.

Siberian Huskies are highly intelligent, which allows them to excel in obedience trials, though many clubs
would like to keep the Husky's instinct by doing sled-racing. However, because of their intelligence, they can
easily become bored and may stop listening to commands. Many dog trainers usually attempt to avoid this
behavior by keeping them busy with new activities. Also due in part to their intelligence, Huskies tend to be
very observant on the actions of people around them and have been known to mimic common household
activities such as turning on lights with their paws and opening doors with their canines. Some undesirable
behaviors they can exhibit include opening refrigerators (and eating the food inside), climbing fences or
digging tunnels in the backyard to escape. These behaviors can be prevented if the dog is given enough
activity to occupy it. Huskies require both mental and physical stimulation for optimum health
The perfect locomotion for a cross-country
sledding race is also the ideal companion for
millions of owners. The Siberian Husky, praised
as the swiftest and most effective sled dog ever
bred, makes a delightful and outgoing pet,
even for those who live hours from the nearest
wintry slope. Besides his athletic abilities and
his flawless disposition, the Siberian Husky
must be counted among the most beautiful and
dramatically striking animals on earth.
