Challenges Of Owning A Siberian Husky

Siberian Husky

If you have ever been around or owned a Siberian Husky, you are well aware of their incredible personalities, their trademark and piercing eyes, as well as their highly entertaining antics and vocalizations. They may be descendant from wolves, and their appearances may be a little intimidating for that reason, but they are big teddy bears.

However, there are some challenges of owning a Siberian Husky.


Huskies love to dig! They often like to dig pits in the dirt that is just big and deep enough for them to curl up in as a way of keeping either warm or cool in the backyard. They are also known to dig under fences for reasons I’ll touch on a little later. Either way, digging can be troublesome and a little destructive. To address the issue of digging under a fence, the best answer is to shore up the fence line with some decorative rocks or bricks to help deter this behavior. When it comes to the pit creation, try to encourage them to do it in an area that isn’t in a high traffic zone, because they will continue to do it in spite of your efforts to rein it in. It’s in their nature.

Escape Artistry

This is a big one, folks. Siberian Huskies love to pull a “Houdini” every chance they get, and they are highly creative in finding ways to escape from a yard or home. The previously mentioned suggestion of adding an extra layer of protection against your fence line helps to keep them from digging out of the yard, but they are just as well known for scaling over fences when the opportunities present themselves. Be aware of areas in your yard where your Husky may be able to climb up and over, and remove that opportunity. It’s also wise to check your gates for the function to fully secure when they are closed and not allowing them to stay propped open even a little. Trust me when I say that a Husky will test the fences and, if there is a weak spot, it will be found.

For in-home training to not rush out the door, a young Husky may be able to be trained to sit and stay. This is a very valuable tool in your arsenal against a runaway. If you plan on having your main entry door open for an extended period of time, it may be best to isolate your Husky in a safe crate or in another room until you’re able to close the door again. Huskies are opportunists – never forget that.

Owning a Siberian Husky is a beautiful experience. They are beautiful dogs and full of character. Instead of barking, they “talk”, and you can have a highly enriching conversation with them on a daily basis. The point is to keep them around, so do what you are able to keep them within the boundaries of your home to give you peace of mind, as well as keeping them safe. Once they get out, they often go on a long and adventurous walk-about, and don’t take kindly to being chase down, even by their beloved owner. Be mindful of your home and property’s boundaries, and owning a Husky will be one of the best experiences of your life.
