Raising a Siberian Husky rescue dog
You have made a wonderful choice in deciding to raise a Siberian Husky rescue dog and now you are probably wondering what you can expect from your new pet in terms of behavior. It all really depends on the trauma they went through in the past and what behavior they have come to expect from humans, but there is some good advice you can follow that will help you get your new pet used to its new life with you and make the transition a lot smoother.
The Siberian Husky rescue dog is a working dog that is bred to always be active so the chances are that it has been caged up for some time since its rescue. The first thing you are going to want to let your new Siberian Husky rescue dog do is run.
The Siberian Husky is bred as a working dog and while the Siberian Husky rescue dog can make a wonderful pet they still have that sense of duty built into them and that comes out when they start to take it upon themselves to protect their human family.
A Siberian Husky rescue dog can be a very loyal dog to you and your family and that can be a good and a bad thing. They are very responsive to training and when they become loyal to a family they can become aggressive to strangers. This is especially true of a Siberian Husky rescue dog that has known abuse and now feels loved. So you will need to socially train your Husky to accept other people and animals or else the results could be extremely bad.
If you are lucky then your Siberian Husky rescue dog is already housebroken and you will not have to go through the process of housebreaking your new dog. However if your dog is not housebroken then just be patient and use the standard housebreaking techniques that are used on other dogs.
The Siberian Husky responds extremely well to training so if you do it right, and use positive reinforcement, then you will find that you will have your new Siberian Husky rescue dog housebroken in no time.
Always use positive reinforcement when training or dealing with your Siberian Husky rescue dog. The dog has been through enough already without you causing more problems with punishment. The Husky is extremely adaptable to home life so just be patient, take your time and enjoy your new pet. If you give it the attention and care it needs it will reward you for many more years to come.
