I'm thinking to get a female husky puppy. Any advice?

Hi, I live in Colorado.
So it would be a perfect place for huskies to live, right?
We don't have a baby yet, but it would be good for a baby to develop well around a big dog, I think.

I'm very aware of the cons of having a big dog as pet in the house, but I'm willing to take the doggy walk and brush at least two times a day. I'm super excited to have my dream dog ever!

But on the other hand, I also really like to know any other cautions with the husky. Like traits and small and big things to know about before getting the husky.

I'd really appreciate it.

  • Huskies are amazing dogs, I had one growing up, and we plan to get one when we move into our house in a few years for our daughter to grow up with. I will cation you though that they take a ton of work to train as a puppy and have alot of energy, they need to go for a long walk or run every day and if they dont get that energy out they can get very destructive.

  • huskys are good dogs! they are very playful and a good family dog from what ive learned...but they need alot of excersize cause of how energetic they are....also are you sure about female? my mother always refused to get a female animal of ANY kind, we always had male dogs or cat...she said she didnt wanna deal with the monthly problem...dont know if they ACTUALLY make a mess (ew) but might wanna look into that if you dont wanna deal with it IF they DO make messes during the time of the month.

  • I see no cons to having a big dog in the house. Huskys are Great dogs however they do have a prey drive or can have it not all do. They are escape artists. If you have never owned a dog before a husky should not be your first dog. They are intellagent, sweet dogs but they can also be very stubborn. They also need plenty of excersise

  • Huskies are very diffucult to train as they are stubborn if you are not used to having or training dogs I would get another breed German Shepherds are very smart quick to train and love kids. I would get a female dog as males tend to hump if not trained properly . I have had Huskies Shepherds both were great dogs but I have been round Dogs all my life. I now have a bernese Mt Dog sweetest most gentle loving dog in the world

  • i grew up with huskies- they are my favorite breed! my mom is actually getting an all white one in the next couple weeks :) they are a great breed- funny, very active, very talkative, and yes, they are escape artists! they dig (it's in their nature- think making a hole in snow to stay warm) and they can jump a fence if it's not over 4 feet high. they have a pack mentality, so if you have just one, make sure to make her an inside dog where she can be happiest.
