Overview


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.

Table of Contents


K9 Expert Education 4
By Allan Reznik, Editor-at-Large, Dog Fancy magazine

The Bold & Beautiful 6
The Siberian Husky has the temperament of a wonderful family companion, athletic sled dog and lifelong best friend.

The Siberian in Short 20
Our simple two-page guide gives you all the necessary information about the Siberian Husky — in 300 words or less!

The Husky’s History 22
The Siberian Husky has a long and fascinating history, from Russia to the Alaskan gold rush to becoming an iconic American hero.

Selecting a Siberian 34
Find out how to choose a reputable breeder and pick a healthy puppy, or maybe you’d like to adopt a dog from a shelter or rescue organization. Either way, there are plenty of Siberians out there waiting for homes.

Home Essentials 48
You need to puppy-proof, or husky-proof, your house, as well as make sure that you have all the things he requires to be comfortable, such as bedding, toys and lots more.

Successful Housetraining 64
Your first job is getting your Siberian Husky to do the doo where you want him to. Using a crate — aka a modern-day den — will expedite the process.

Vet Visits and Everyday Care 76
Selecting a vet means doing some research and planning your Siberian’s first vet visit.
Also, learn what to do when everyday bumps and bruises come about.

On the Topic of Health 88
Learn how to deal with external and internal parasites, skin problems, and common medical and behavioral conditions.
Supper for Siberians 100
With proper knowledge and know-how, you can feed your Siberian Husky a sound diet so he won’t end up a pudgy pooch.

Husky Handsome 112
From nail clipping instruction to brushing and bathing basics, we’ll have your Siberian Husky looking handsome.

Time to Train 126
Every husky needs to learn the basics of sit, down, stay and come, and additional training advice will make your dog obey without hassle.

Changing Bad Behavior 140
A well-behaved dog isn’t born that way. When problems arise, prompt training will turn bad habits into appropriate behavior. Teach your dog that there are better ways to get attention, and you’ll save yourself a lot of headaches.

For the Fun of It 154
The high energy of the Siberian demands exercise and attention, and his athletic and strong body makes him perfect for dog sports, from sledding to agility.
