Country of Origin
The Siberian Husky is believed to have been developed by the Chukchi Indians, natives of the region now called Siberia, more than three thousand years ago. The Siberian Husky was first used as a sled dog to pull small loads. Because of its isolation, the breed was kept very pure until the twentieth century, when Alaskans began importing the dogs to use for sled racing. Although largely replaced in dog sledding by the more-competitive Alaskan husky, the Siberian husky continues to be used as a recreational sled dog and companion. It also served as a sled dog with the U.S. military during WW II.
The Husky is a medium-size dog with a compact, muscular body. It is slightly longer than it is tall. It has medium-size, erect ears and almond-shaped eyes that can be brown, blue, one of each, or parti-colored.
Depending on the color of the dog, the nose is black, liver, flesh-colored, or streaked with pink. It is double coated with a medium-length, straight outer coat and a dense undercoat.

The Siberian husky is an active, lively dog that is friendly and outgoing with almost everyone. It tends to be independent and is not a one-person dog.

When this happens, it’s important that you assert yourself as leader. Not by bullying or hitting, but by confirming the rules with clarity and consistency.
Let your dog wait to eat until you and your family has eaten. That is one of the best ways to establish your leadership role. He will view you as the keeper of all valuable resources (food, treats, toys)
