Are huskies good for first time dog owners?

No, huskies are not good for first time dog owners. Huskies can be very independent and stubborn due to their intelligence. Because of their intelligent nature, huskies need a strong alpha figure to train them.

Huskies are also very playful and full of energy. They require at least 2 to 3 hours of exercise and mental stimulation every day. If a husky’s energy needs are not met, they will become destructive and possibly destroy home furniture and shoes.

Huskies also shed a lot, so weekly brushing is advised. When huskies start to lose their coats, they should be brushed daily. This is a lot of maintenance for someone who has never owned a dog before.
