Consider Yourself Lucky—5 Essential Tips When Adopting an Abandoned Husky

Husky

Huskies are one of the most beautiful dogs in the entire world. They are even more gorgeous when they have their signature blue or mismatched eyes. If you are lucky enough to have such a glorious pet, you want to take proper care of it while also making yourself comfortable. Here are 5 essential tips when adopting an abandoned Husky.

Be Patient

When a dog is abandoned, they could be a little suspicious of people at first. Be patient with the dog. You should be patient when it comes to training. You should also be patient about how long it takes them to warm up to you. You should also show lots of love. Use positive reinforcement instead of negative reinforcement. Give them plenty of cuddles, too.

Be Prepared for the Howling

Huskies are very in tune with their wolf relatives. Like wolves, they will even howl on occasion. This is a part of their nature. You might want to consider this if you are a person who really needs their sleep. The husky just might not be the dog for you.

Overheating

Huskies were bred to be in the snow. They have evolved to enjoy cool weather. That doesn’t mean that they can’t be happy in a warmer climate than the artic. Huskies have a double layer of protection. It’s not recommended that they get shaved. They will shed some excess fur in the hotter months, but it is still best for them to not overheat. If you live in an area where it gets hot in the  summer it is best to keep the  air conditioners on for them so that they don’t end up overheating while you are at work.

Take Them Out A Lot

Huskies are very energetic dogs. They are used to pulling a sled through snow for hours every single day. This means you need to take them out a lot. If you don’t take them out, they could end up damaging your furniture or having accidents in the home. If you are out of the home for an extended period of time every day, you should have someone take the dog for a walk during this time.

Take Plenty of Pictures

Your new dog is gorgeous. You want to remember how cute they are by taking plenty of pictures. You can even go the extra mile and hire a professional photographer if you’re so inclined. The pictures will last for the rest of your life, allowing you to see your furry member of your family well past their time.

If you are lucky enough to have a husky for a pet dog, they will give you love and companionship for years to come. You want to give your friend everything they could need and want in return. Follow these tips to make the most out of your new relationship.
