Potty Training your Husky Puppy
Learning where to potty takes practice and there will be accidents. Watch for signs that your dog needs to eliminate (pacing, sniffing, squatting). Immediately, but calmly, hustle your dog outside to their designated area. When the dog does their business, you can say “go potty” or another command of your choosing – just pick one and stick with it. Praise your pup and offer a treat when your pup is done, then play with him. In time, your dog will learn that “go potty” means to eliminate, and you’ll be able to tell your Husky where and when to go.
Feeding your Husky Puppy
Huskies require a comparatively small amount of food for their size. Their ancestors were trained to travel long distances while pulling a load on the tiniest amount of food. Huskies are unusual compared to other dog breeds when it comes to feeding.
Since these dogs were bred to work in harsh conditions where food was not easily available, they have an efficient metabolism that knows how to use nutrients. Feeding quality food to the Siberian in the first 9 months is very important as this is the main growth phase.
Huskies should be fed three times daily as puppies. With time, they will automatically switch to two meals per day. Also unlike many dogs, if you provide access to food all day, it won’t harm Huskies. They don’t eat continuously like some other dogs. While other dogs may eat until they fall ill, Huskies will not eat once they are full.
Huskies should be fed at least two hours before exercise. Additionally, wait at least 30 minutes after the exercise to feed him otherwise gastric torsion may happen. We recommend the raw food diet to make sure your dog gets the highest quality ingredients available with none of the unnecessary filler. (3)
