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.
