Winter is Coming: Are you ready?

For those of us that live in climates that have winter there are things you should know about huskies. Just because they are a Northern Breed doesn’t mean you can toss them out in a blizzard while you Christmas shop. Especially if they have not been acclimated to colder temperatures.

In the fall I let my dogs spend a lot of time outside and even sleep outside if they want to. In my opinion it lets their bodies know that winter is coming, and it’s time to grow a nice thick coat. I certainly wouldn’t put an indoor husky out in cold weather if they are not ready for it.

I found a great article that from a sled dog veterinarian that answers a lot of questions about huskies and cold weather. You might want to give it a read.
