Siberian Huskies Shed – A LOT.

Be ready to have dog hair all over the house – floors, carpets, clothing, furniture, everywhere.

If we are allergic to dog hair, or like our home to be really clean, then the Siberian Husky is not for us.

When I was looking for a Sibe, I talked to a few breeders in my area. The first thing they all said was, “Siberian Huskies shed a lot”. I mentioned that my other dog, a Shiba Inu, also has a double coat and also sheds a fair amount. However, they all said, “Siberian Huskies shed a lot more“.

And they do! A whole lot more.

Therefore, it is very important to train our Husky puppy to enjoy the grooming experience.

Start with a soft brush, and lightly comb our dog’s body for a short period of time. Do this often, and pair it with food rewards. Once puppy is comfortable with the brushing process, we can slowly extend the length of the session, and switch to using the Furminator.

Frequent brushing is a good idea to keep a Siberian Husky clean, and clear out loose hair. The more hair on the Furminator, the less hair on the floor.

About twice a year, Siberian Huskies blow their coat. During this time, there will be more fur than ever. To keep things under control, try to brush every day. Remember to always keep brushing sessions fun, rewarding, and not overly long.
