|Exercise, attention, love, affection, and companionship are all necessary things for Siberian Huskies. They need oodles of exercise. Whenever you have some extra time on your hands, I suggest taking the dog for a walk. Also, Siberian Huskies are very energetic so I suggest brisk walking or jogging. Just walking doesn't seem to cut it for them.
My Sibe needs attention 24/7. I am unemployed right now and stay home all day with him. I am blessed not to have bills, etc. I am still young and live with my parents, which helps. Anyway, Nikaya craves attention all the time and if he doesn't get it, he will find a way or become destructive. We live in the country so the vocalization doesn't really affect our neighbors. I love to hear him howl and sing.
You may also try to get him a companion. Sibes need other dogs. They are extremely pack-oriented and don't like to be left alone. Nikaya is currently an only dog but I'm working on that. Also, as I said,I am able to stay home all day with him. Nikaya is a predominantly outside dog. He stays in a 10 by 40 ft kennel at night and when we go somewhere (not overnight, though.) Every morning he howls when he wakes up to tell me that he is ready to come out of his kennel. I keep him on a cable tie-out during the day, but watch him very closely.
You may also talk with a trainer as they will be able to give you a lot of helpful, informative, and insightful information. You may find that obedience training will also help if he is not already.
Good luck and let us know how it goes...
