5 Reasons To Get Your Husky A Friend

Annie and Luna Checking For Action

If you have ever had a husky or are new to the breed, you probably already know how high maintenance they are.  They are a pack dog and need constant activity to keep them from getting bored and finding their own entertainment! With Luna, my husky, we have found several different methods to stay busy and happy and today I am going to give you 5 reasons why a dog friend can be a fantastic option for your little pack pup.

1. Everything Is Better With a Friend
When it comes to all things, from running to sleeping, everything is always better with a friend! Your husky will love to wrestle and play all day long with a canine companion and that means less time you have to spend wrestling with them and more time that you spend enjoying the adorable antics of your pup! 

2. Socializing Can Help Keep Your Husky Healthy
There are so many benefits that a social pet has from being in better physical shape to actual mental stability. Having a canine friend can really help your husky to learn that it is ok to be friendly and have fun with others which means less fear in general and a pup without fear is fantastic. 

3. A Dog Friend Teaches Your Pup About Life
Having a friend will give your husky pup access to a whole new world of things to learn and they will watch their buddy closely to see which things they like and which things they don’t like.  For example, Luna has a friend Annie who would bark all the time to let Luna know she wanted to play. Luna picked up on the behavior, came home and started barking at her other little buddies to communicate the same way.  Now, this can be both good and bad, but if you pick the right friend for your dog, a well-behaved and wonderful pup, the good will always outweigh the bad! 

4. Sharing Food With A Friend Can Keep Your Pup From Food Aggression
Huskies can be very independent and head-strong, but having a friend to share a snack with gives you a chance to help show how sharing is caring.  Luna has no food aggression at all and will share her treats, snacks, food and even water with her buddy and her buddy is the same with her.

5. Having A Friend Keeps Huskies From Loneliness
Your husky is a pack dog and needs to have lots of action around. Having a buddy keeps them confident, happy and fulfilled and a happy husky is a husky who won’t tear up your brand new, expensive sofa! They are a lot like people in that respect though, and if you like to have friends, then certainly your canine companion would too! 

Having just one friend can make your pup a more well-rounded pet, but remember that with huskies socializing in general is very important.  This means walks around the neighborhood to meet all the squirrels, people and other pets that live out there.  Dog parks are also great, they give your pup some freedom to choose who they like and don’t like.  Just take your time with your pup and make sure that you are there to intervene if they get scared or nervous, as the pack leader you have to protect them from any aggression!

Veteran’s Day!!

Posted on Updated on

Thanks to Congressional Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U.S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, the 11th of November every year is now a legal holiday: “a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as ‘Armistice Day’.”  The proclamation had actually been in the works for 7+ years before being made official, such a long time for such a deserved day.

I am lucky, of the four parents that I have, both of my birth parents are veterans.  I have been raised with a respect and appreciation for our military that I think is SEVERELY lacking in our country today.  When the flags go up and the National Anthem plays, I am PROUD to put my hand over my heart and sing (badly, but I blame genetics for that :))

There are so many people out there who daily put their life on the line not only for the law-abiding, hardworking citizens but also for the deadbeat’s, the lazy people who don’t want to lift a finger, for the criminals, the ones who feel laws don’t apply, for the children who have no idea what is going on, for the politicians, crooked or straight, who are trying to effectively run the country. They fight, they leave their families who they love and adore to fight a battle whether we deserve it or not.  The very least we can do is say thank-you.

Thank you for fighting for us. Thank-you for risking your life daily for us. Thank-you for giving up your precious time with family, friends, loved ones for us. Whether you support the causes that the military acts on or not, tell them THANK-YOU.  They DESERVE it.
