Product description

From the Inside Flap

The athletic, powerful Siberian Husky has worked for man as a sled dog for more than 3,000 years. Today, the Husky is still employed in his original role by racing enthusiasts, but the breed's versatility and stunning good looks have also enabled him to become a much-loved companion and show dog, popular with owners the world over. In this comprehensive book of the breed, the authors explore the history of the enigmatic Siberian Husky, and trace his development to the present day. The breed's character and behaviour are analysed, and the book is packed with practical information on choosing, training, socialising and caring for a Siberian Husky. The role of the Husky as a working dog is examined, with a chapter devoted to the exciting world of racing. The more sedate world of showing is also covered, with helpful advice on getting the most from your dog in the show ring. For the specialist, there is detailed advice on breeding and rearing a litter, plus an in-depth analysis of the Siberian Husky Breed Standards. Lavishly illustrated with stunning colour photography and practical line-drawings, this book is a must for all Siberian Husky enthusiasts. Whether you are a novice owner or an experienced breeder, whether you are interested in showing or working, or whether you simply want to get the best from your companion dog, The Complete Siberian Husky provides an invaluable reference for this most fascinating breed.

No one knows for certain when people first used dogs to pull sleds. It seems likely that the practice of working dogs in harness originated among the natives of Eurasia. Certainly, Eskimos were using dogs to pull sleds 1,500 years ago but there is evidence that sled dogs date from 4,000 or more years ago. Accompanied by their jackal-type dogs, the people of Central Asia migrated to populate the extremities of Siberia and the Arctic. Their dogs, which were crossbred with the native wolf, developed over time into what became known as the Northern Breeds. From this early group of Northern dogs, the breeds developed their own individual characteristcs, which have survived through the ages. Among these Northern Breeds, the Siberian Husky is probably the best known today.
