Many people may feel the mysterious beauty of the Siberian Husky standing in the snowy field.
It is a breed of dog that many people start to keep because of its wolf-like charm and want to keep it.
In this article, we have summarized information on the history and characteristics of Siberian Husky, personality and longevity, common illnesses, how to keep it, and prices.
Basic information on Siberian Husky
It was bred by the Chukchi people who lived in northeastern Siberia as “dog sledding” and “hunting dogs”.
When the diphtheria epidemic occurred in 1925, the story of carrying serum with a dog sled over a distance of 1100 km in a blizzard is so famous that it was made into a movie. In 1930, it was recognized as a breed in the United States.

Contrary to its wolf-like appearance, it has a mild nature.
Serious threats and bites are rare, and the owner is obedient and has a strong sense of companionship. You can deepen your bond by increasing your skin ship with a little brushing.
16 ~ 27kg
51 ~ 60cm
Males and females have different body sizes.
In the case of adult dogs, males weigh 20 to 27 kg and are 54 to 60 cm tall. Females weigh 16-23 kg and are 51-56 cm tall.
The biggest feature is the color of the eyes. In addition to “black,” “blue,” “brown,” and “black,” there are various types such as “odd-eyed cats,” which have different colors on the left and right.
There may be an image of illness, but in the case of Siberian Husky, the life span is the same as other dog breeds because it is not caused by heterochromia.
Hair / coat color
The coat is a double coat consisting of a long, water-repellent overcoat and a dense undercoat with high heat retention, so a large amount of hair will come off during the “hair change period” in spring and autumn.
The coat color is generally “black & white”, but colors such as “white one color”, “copper red”, and “chocolate & white” are also accepted.
About the Siberian Husky diet
The recommended dog food for Siberian Husky is FINEPET’S “KIWAMI”.
We use a lot of “duck meat” rich in animal protein and “herring” from the Netherlands, and 90% of the raw materials are made of meat.
With a high digestion and absorption rate of 87%, it can efficiently replenish nutrition with a smaller amount than general dog food.
About the Siberian Husky movement
The importance of walking
The Siberian Husky is a breed of dog with a lot of exercise, so less opportunity to move can cause stress and illness.
Please avoid hot hours and create opportunities to move your body well. It is also recommended to use a dog run.

After a walk, you’ll be worried about your dog’s hair and feet getting dirty.
Although Kanfapet is made only with “sodium hypochlorite”, “acidic agent” and “pure water”, it has a strong sterilizing and deodorizing effect. Safety is also recognized by the Japan Food Research Laboratories, and there is no problem if your dog licks it.
Unlike existing disinfectants, it can be sterilized not only for specific bacteria but also for a wide range of weak to strong bacteria, so it is convenient to have it as one of the walking goods.
About Siberian Husky discipline
It has been called “Siberian Husky = stupid dog”, but there is something wrong with the human side who started to keep it irresponsibly just because it is a popular dog breed without understanding the nature of the breed.
It is often said that it is difficult to discipline, but it is important to teach patiently because you have an unrelenting personality.

About life and illness of Siberian Husky
The average lifespan of a Siberian husky is 12 years, which is the longest among large dogs.
If you choose regular exercise, heat measures, and health-conscious dog food, you will live a healthy and long life.’
Diseases that are easy to get
Genetic disorders are often difficult to cure, so be sure to check the health of your parent dog when welcoming you.
The diseases to be aware of are “osteosarcoma”, “hypothyroidism”, “progressive retinal atrophy”, and “glaucoma”, and some of them have no cure and are very painful.
