The Athlete

Siberian huskies are natural athletes that will find ways to amuse themselves.

Time to play!

The Siberian Husky is a natural athlete. They require exercise in some form. However, it is a misconception that the Siberian needs lots of open space. Adequate exercise can be achieved within a small fenced area or with daily walks. Remember, though, that due to their strength, they should not be left solely in the care of a young child or less-than-physically-fit adult.

Another great way to exercise a Siberian is to have two! With two Siberian Huskies, they can entertain each other. While it isn't necessary to have two, it is certainly helpful to have another dog around that likes to play. Without a partner in crime for your husky, the humans of the house will need to be quick and ready on their feet for play.

Ask any multiple Siberian home about the wonder of their play. Watching huskies play is often equated to watching a hockey game. "He goes for the body check." "Hey, that's roughing!" Think of the fun you can have sitting back with a nice refreshing drink watching the games in your own club box—no crowds, no sticky floors, and no lines to the bathrooms.

Another option for the Siberian craving person who only wants one dog is to adopt a mature companion. They certainly are still full of spunk, but they are not at the same level as the youngsters. Click here to read more about the joys of owning a mature dog.
