Publisher Comments:

Bred for loyalty, strength and endurance, the easy-going and sociable Siberian Husky is a very pure and ancient breed, dating back 4,000 years or more. First bred by the Chukchis, a semi-nomadic people of northeastern Siberia, to hunt reindeer and pull sleds, the Siberian is an active breed that loves the outdoors. Prized for their great beauty, intelligence, wonderful way with children and lack of “dog smell,” they are also more free-spirited (and free-ranging) than many other popular breeds, and have a reputation for stubbornness and relentlessness in pursuit of a goal.

Is this breed right for you and your family? Siberian Huskies For Dummies answers this and all your questions about getting, caring for and living with a Husky. Siberian devotee—she has eight of her own—Diane Morgan gets you up and running with what you need to know to:

  • Find and deal with reputable breeders
  • Choose the right Husky for you
  • Hou sebreak and socialize your new puppy
  • Educate yourself and your dog
  • Handle behavioral problems
  • Participate in competitions

In friendly, down-to-earth language, Diane provides insights into the Siberian Husky temperament and loads of sensible, easy-to-follow advice on everything a Husky owner should know—along with fun facts and Husky trivia, amusing and informative anecdotes, and tips on how to have a great time with your Husky. Topics covered include:

  • Understanding what makes the Siberian different from every other breed
  • Deciding whether a male or female is right for you
  • Understanding how to communicate with your Siberian Husky
  • Training your Siberian Husky
  • Grooming your Siberian
  • Finding and establishing a good relationship with a veterinarian
  • Breaking bad habits in your Husky
  • Feeding and exercising your Siberian Husky
  • Recognizing, preventing and treating common health problems
  • Getting your Husky into sledding

The indispensable guide for you and your Siberian Husky, Siberian Huskies For Dummies is the only book you’ll need to help you have the best possible experience with this very ancient and venerable breed of dog.

badgerlord, December 4, 2007 (view all comments by badgerlord)
I basicly was just getting up every day and doing my school work,no plans,no life, and my mother thought we might get a dog, and the only dog for me would be a wolf-like dog, but siberians are in no way wolf-like,(which i found out later) being puppies at heart, this book really helped me learn about siberian huskies, im 14 years old and i told my mother that we should get a sibe, to convince her i read this book and amazed her (and myself) with my knowladge about siberians, so she took me to a breeder and picked out the best dog we have ever had! -a few months later we had 2 more siberians, as long as you keep them busy they are sure to turn out as some of the best dogs you'll ever have, my future plans now include siberian huskies and the iditarod! Howl,Shey,and Mitchi (all sibes) have changed my life for the better!
