Meiska is 10 months old and she weighs in at 47 lbs. Vet said that she is in the perfect range for height and weight for the breed. I would think that it would be hard for her to get overweight since Huskies really only eat what they need. We give her 2 cups of food when her bowl is empty and she will take a couple days to eat it...during the summer anyway when its hot. Vet said that is typical as well and to expect her to eat more during the winter months.

Thank you. I have also done a lot of research and have determined that she just has a little longer standard coat. But like you said, for a family pet, it really doesn't matter anyway. I was just curious because another Husky owner at the dog park said her coat was too long to be a Husky...this was one of the short haired ones....

So, now being more educated about the topic, I let her know, nicely of course smile about all the different coat lengths. Besides that, Meiska has 1 blue eye and 1 80%brown 20% blue eye....which I have learned is almost a dead giveaway that she is a true breed...

Just had to clarify for myself and educate those that think they know. wink

Thanks again

Siberian Husky > Meiska the timid...

Meiska is a 10 month old female Siberian. We got her at 9 weeks. She has always been real timid around other people or dogs. We have been taking her to the dog park 1x/week at first, now we are taking her everyday. She would just sit around under our feet for the first few weeks. Now she runs around, but doesn't really play with the other dogs. When another dog comes up to her, she just lays down on her back and becomes very submissive.

Anyone else have a Husky that is totally submissive like this? When we are at home, she is EXTREMELY hyper and plays with our Golden Retriever for hours. But not at the dog park. We have about 6 other Husky owners that go to the same park at the same time of day, and all of their Huskies are constantly jumping around playing.

Just wondering if anyone has ever heard of a Husky like ours?

Siberian Husky > Crates and huskies?

I agree with Lexus. Meiska loves her crate. We have one of the extra large wire crates in the living room off in a corner. We would tell her to go to her kennel whenever we left. We would always have water in there for her and give a few treats when she was a puppy. We always leave the door open so she can wander in and out when she pleases. She'll even take naps in there once in awhile.

As for being under tables, Meiska loves it too. She sleeps under the coffee table or even under the leg of the recliner, especially if someone has a blanket. Its like her own little fort. But as for the crate, just make it pleasing to your Husky. Eventually good rewards will help ease the tension/anxiety of the crate.

Siberian Husky > Is it possible to have a kitten with a Husky?

Meiska plays with our cat on a daily basis. They even sleep together on occasion. So its possible that Huskies and cats can get along. But I would be very careful since your Husky is already 4. Take him to PetSmart or a humane society and see how he behaves around them. Make sure you have someone help you since Huskies can get a quick burst of energy from thin air and it would be difficult to control the dog and the cat.

It is true that Siberians have a high Prey drive, but they are also one of the smartest K-9s around...which means they can be trained for almost anything. One on the best traits about the breed is that they love to learn. So test out the reactions at the store or shelter first, and if you think that they will be okay, ask if there is a return policy in case your Huskies behavior changes when you get the cat to his territory.

Bottom line, there is a chance that your Husky would be receptive to a feline....but be very careful on how you approach it.

I have noticed a lot of other huskies at the dog park that have short sleek hair. My dog is a lot more "fluffy". Does this mean she is a wooly? I have been scouring Google and I see pics of "plush" and "wooly" and there seems to be a lot of cross talk between the definitions.

Can someone please help?

Thanks
