The perfect locomotion for a cross-country sledding race is also the ideal companion for millions of owners. The Siberian Husky, praised as the swiftest and most effective dog sled ever bred, makes a delightful and outgoing pet, even for those who live hours from the nearest wintry slopes. Besides his athletic abilities and his flawless disposition, the Siberian Husky must be counted among the most beautiful and dramatically striking animals on earth. This book provides the much-needed factual information about Siberian Huskies and their ancestry, character and standard, as well as the proper selection, feeding, training, preventative health care and behaviour of the breed. The new owner will welcome advice about puppy-proofing the home, preparing for the pup's arrival and housetraining. In addition to an authoritative, lively text, this book presents over 135 photographs in full colour, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive. Helpful hints and important information are highlighted to provide easy access to everything the reader needs to know about life with a Siberian Husky from puppyhood to the senior years.
