And huskies usually bite just like wolves – with a very powerful mouth and only the throat. Ha has to avoid aggressive dogs when he is alone. Even so, if he is aggressive, he will attack desperately.

Different types of husky breeding methods
Husky breeders are well-developed, fit and sexually active and can get more and better offspring. Therefore, the male dog should be fed a diet with higher animal protein than the average dog, and be raised strong, not too fat or too thin. It is best to feed them individually and to maintain regular exercise. Half an hour in a large playground or field 2-3 times a day. During the breeding season, breeding males and non-estrus females should be penned together to stimulate the male’s sex drive. At the same time, foods high in protein and vitamins, such as lean meat, hard-boiled eggs and milk, should be added to the diet. In addition to the usual morning and evening feedings, an extra meal in between.
After delivery, husky bitches should promptly clean the delivery room, remove dirt and dead fetuses, and clean their vulva, tail, and udder with slightly warm water and soap. Strangers should not approach at this time to avoid stimulating emotions, panic and even bites. Two or three days after the delivery of the bitch, feeding should be appropriately reduced, and gradually increased after four days, returning to normal in about a week. During the breastfeeding period, the bitch should secrete enough milk every day, so the amount of food and the number of feedings should be gradually increased to enhance nutrition. They should be fed 3-4 times a day and have enough water to drink at any time. In terms of nutrition, broth or milk should be increased appropriately in addition to the protein and vegetables of the finishing food. Some bitches, especially newborn bitches, can be fed brown sugar water or glucose water with vitamin C added to the dog.
After the husky puppies are born, observe them several times a day to prevent the mother from crushing them. The newborn dog’s ears are deaf and its eyes are closed. The dog is usually born on days 9 to 13
Open eyes. 13-17 days to hear sounds. Take special care of some weak dogs until the husky puppies open their eyes. When nursing, the mother should place the weak puppy at the multi-nursing teat and check to see if the puppy climbs out of the whelping bed and should be returned immediately. Hearing does not come into play until a week after birth. About 21 days after birth, the puppy is able to walk gradually, at this time need to prevent running out of the delivery room. After 25 days of life, the dog’s appetite is particularly strong and breast milk cannot meet the demand, so it must be supplemented with small amounts of milk, rice soup or porridge, and small amounts of cod liver oil, fish meal and bone meal. Puppies are started to be de-wormed with medication at three weeks of age and then repeated every 3-4 weeks until they are 16 weeks old and again at 6 months of age when they are checked for eggs in the feces. After one and a half months of life, the puppy should be gradually switched to a food-based diet. Feed 3-4 times a day to meet the dog’s growth and development needs. Puppies should be weaned after 50-60 days of nursing.
Post-weaning Husky puppies are extremely important to raise and manage. From weaning to 6 months is the key to raising a good dog, and the month after weaning is the most difficult time to raise a dog. This period of high morbidity is mainly due to improper feeding management, reducing the growth and development of puppies and resistance to disease. After weaning the dog, the food should have protein, feeding to avoid eating too much, less and more meals is appropriate. 2-3 months old puppies are fed 4-5 times a day, each time only 80% full. Puppies should be taken care of when they eat so that the weak dogs do not eat the food and the strong ones grab too much food.
Old Huskies are afraid of cold and heat. So don’t leave him out in the open for too long when it’s cold, give him a warm, dry comfort zone, and let him stay outside in the shade of a drafty tree in the summer. Due to the reduced activity, most old dogs become fat and stupid. Therefore, we should be careful to control the food vitamin food. Older dogs have reduced vision and hearing and are less responsive. It is best for the owner to direct him with touch or hand signals, not to shout at him, and not to force him to play with children and dogs. Key points of raising huskies
Essentials of raising huskies
Siberian sled dogs are known for their resilience. In the cold of Siberia, they need to adapt to day and night temperatures that vary by tens of degrees.
A competent Husky must have a unique hair layer harsh environment. Huskies have two layers of hair, the outer coat and the fleece, where the outer coat is divided into two sections that can usually be seen as dark shiny at the top and thick and light at the lower end. The top shiny hair called SILVERTIPS silver tips is used to resist UV rays and heat generated by the hot sun; the skin grows with thick hair roots, so the husky’s hair is relatively immune to hair loss. The ratio of husky inner hair down to outer hair is generally 8 inner hair: 1 outer hair. These abundant inner hairs secrete a waterproof grease, and it is this grease that creates the very scientific insulation. INSULATION, lowering the heat and cold of the outside world.
