So you want a husky??

This is Kishka, she is a Siberian Husky. Kishka is Chuck's dog. Chuck bought Kishka as a puppy from a local breeder. When I met Chuck she was a year old had gone to puppy kindergarten and I think some other obedience class and was currently in agility. In the last couple of years there have been these movies depicting huskies as obedient, run around off leash ball fetchers. We would like to set you straight. Kishka only wants a ball or any other toy when some other dog wants it, and she will never ever catch and bring a ball back. Off leash- yeah right huskies are runners and very independent, she runs, but not to you! Obedient- okay Kishka is trained but most of the time she listens only when there is something in it for her like food. Think you want a lap dog- huskies need lots of exercise, Chuck takes her running and biking and he is worn out before her. We love Kishka and can not think of a life without her- okay sometimes but only for a split second. She is a great dog for us but please do your research if you think a husky might be in your future.
