Dedicated to the Siberian Husky, the world’s consummate sledding dog, beloved for his affectionate, people-loving personality as well as his endurance on the race, this Smart Owner’s Guide, created by the editors at Dog Fancy magazine, offers the most up-to-date and accurate information every dog owner needs to become a well-informed caregiver for his dog. Illustrated with color photographs of adorable puppies and handsome adults, this easy-to-read primer is designed in a modern, lively manner that readers will find user-friendly and entertaining.

Each Smart Owner’s Guide offers a description of the breed’s character and physical conformation, historical overview, and its attributes as a companion dog. The reader will find informative chapters on everything he or she needs to know about acquiring, raising, and training this remarkable purebred dog, including: finding a breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy; preparing for the puppy’s homecoming, shopping for supplies, and puppy-proofing the home; house-training; veterinary and home health maintenance; feeding and nutrition; and grooming. Obedience training for basic cues (sit, stay, heel, come, etc.) and solving potential problem behaviors (barking, chewing, aggression, jumping up, etc.) are addressed in separate chapters, as are activities to enjoy with the dog, including showing, agility, therapy work, and more.

Entertaining tidbits and smart advice fill up colorful sidebars in every chapter, which the editors call “It’s a Fact,” “Smart Tip,” “Notable & Quotable,” and “Did You Know?” Real-life heroes and rescue stories are retold in full-page features called “Pop Pups” and “True Tails.” Recipes, training, and care tips are highlighted in the “Try This” feature pages.

The Smart Owner’s Guide series is the only series that offers readers an online component in which dog owners can join a breed-specific online club hosted by dogchannel.com. At Club Husky, owners of the breed can find forums, blogs, and profiles to connect with other breed owners, as well as charts and checklists that can be downloaded. More than just 20,000 pages of solid information, there’s a host of fun to be had at the club in the form of downloadable breed-specific e-cards, screensavers, games, and quizzes.

The Resources section of the book includes contact information for breed-related organizations and rescues, as well as practical guidance on traveling with dogs, identification, and locating qualified professionals to assist the dog owner, such as pet sitters, trainers, and boarding facilities. This information-packed Smart Owner’s Guide is fully indexed.

To Sil: Yup. He's going. To Dawnpelt: :P I got broken up with too. But that's not technically selfish. He thinks that he isn't himself so he's doing this to regain confidence sorta. I thinks. He's not saying he doesn't like you. Brookheart: *claps* Serp is being helpful for once! O: Oh and High-five, Shadowthorn! SINGLES RULE! WOOT WOOT! MWAHAHAHA! Honeysong: I see why. You can be as stupid anc crazy as you want because you aren't trying to impress anyone. Brookheart: I am NOT stupid! Darkbramble to Goldendust: Love you :D Brookheart: Am I stupid? Darkbramble: Umm... It depends... will you punch me if I say yes? Brookheart: Yep! Darkbramble: No you are not stupid. Brookheart: PARTY ROCK IS IN THE HOUSE TONIGHT! EVERYBODY JUST HAVE A GOOD TIME!! AND WE GONNA MAKE YOU LOSE YOUR MIND!! SHAKE THAT!!!! lolz!!! Serpentfang: *glares* Well, actually it is sorta possible to be yourself and date/have a mate at the same time. Just with the right person. Like take Zac for example, he's as crazy and stupid as he was before with Sil. Owltalon: Excuse me? Sugarpelt: And Haden. Lotusfur: MELON!!! Sugarpelt: Love you :) Serpentfang: Oh and Logan. Darkbramble: :P Calmwater: He's actually tamed himself!!! OMG THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH GOLDENDUST!!! Owltalon: Wait back up. Did you call me crazy and stupid? O: O: I've never been called BOTH at the same time!!! SCORE! XD!!! Serpentfang to Dawnpelt: He might come back to you. Brookheart to Dawnpelt: OMG YOU CAN SOOOO BE MY BRO'S MATE!!! HE GOT DUMPED TOO!!! Serpentfang: O: Brookheart to Dawnpelt: ;) If you want him, I'm here ;) ;) ;) Serpentfang: Umm..? Jessica??? *glares* Brookheart: I'm sorry, but you are single *innocent smile* Serpentfang: Grrr! She probably doesn't even want a mate right now!!! BROOKHEART YOU REALLY NEED TO USE YOUR BRAIN!!!! Brookheart: O: D: D: D: D: D: D*: Serpentfang: Errr... Umm... BYE! Zachary: Wow... He is open tho. Serpentfang: DUDE!!! Zachary: No, I'm talking to everyone.
