My wife and I are VERY new at the Siberian Husky thing (we just adopted our first guy last Saturday from a rescue - a two year old named Yukon), but decided to pick up a few books to read up on them. Maybe we didn't buy the right books, but it really seems like this one has a lot of information that other do not have. I also suggest "Siberian Husky: A Comprehensive Guide to Owning and Caring for Your Dog (Kennel Club Dog Breed Series)," as it is a great, comprehensive look at the breed, and includes information found in "Siberian Huskies Complete Owner's Manual" (which is itself a good book, but tends to skimp in a few areas).
I would pick this book up as an addition to your library but, if you are going to really research these great dogs, I recommend buying one or two others to go along with it.

I got my first Siberian Husky and I didn't know how the book was going to help me but I didn't regret one bit of buying this book. It tells you a lot of interesting stuff. They are very different from raising another kind of dog so I really do recommend people to buy this book for newbies or people who just want to learn about huskies, want a husky in the future or even having trouble with your husky.

SOO easy to read. Gives it to you straight and easy to reference from time to time. Fairly thick but won't take you more than 1-3 days to get through.

I have been deeply involved in the dog world as a trainer, exhibitor (conformation and obedience), owner, fosterer and rescuer for a number of years and I love this book series. As a relatively new Siberian husky owner, fancier and rescuer, I found this book to be accurate, frank and totally fun to read. That last quality is especially important because I am finding increasingly that many people who acquire puppies or dogs have no real idea of what is involved in dog ownership. This seems to be especially true with a beautiful purebred like the Siberian husky. This book pretty much tells it like it is, from the fact that NO husky can be trusted not to run away if not on leash or fenced (they are bred to "run", after all)to the idea that Siberian huskies help remind you what is important in life--as long as it's not keeping a perfect house (they DO shed). It also has more information than any other single book I have found on general dog care, health, first aid, behavior, training (much of it specific for Siberian huskies--a great plus). This book even contains chapters on grooming, "working" huskies for fun and also very interesting information on the history of the Siberian husky as a breed. I would give this book 5 stars (or more) except for two things: 1) I would have liked to have seen more emphasis on finding and acquiring homeless Siberian huskies from rescue programs. This was mentioned, but only briefly. Siberians frequently find themselves homeless (I guess because not everyone has read this book and is prepared for them!) 2) I found the section on whether to have a Siberian husky live inside or outside--a major decision with great ramifications for the dog's life and the family's enjoyment of the dog--somewhat confusing.Read more ›

For anyone thinking of adopting a husky, this book is a good resource. It does not intend to scare potential owners away from this awesome breed, but it does accurately present the joys (and hardships) of owning a Sibe. Sibes are wonderful, but they are definitely not for everyone - especially for the lazy. Far too many people adopt dogs without properly considering the time and commitment that goes into their care. A husky can be a challenging dog (as opposed to other breeds) for a first time dog owner. They need a lot of exercise to keep them fit (physically and mentally), they are food thiefs extraordinaire, they are not to be trusted off leash, and escape artists (yes, they can climb a 6 ft chain link fence or dig under it). Huskies that don't do at least some of these things are a rarity indeed. Potential owners need to be ready to deal with these issues or they could have a lost or injured dog on their hands before they know it.

My Sibe was a rescue who originally came from a pet store - he was not the product of good breeding practices and has many health problems as a result. Personally, I would not buy an animal from a pet store and I don't think that this book is necessarily condoning this method either. The fact of the matter is that dogs will continue to be sold in this manner so long as there is a demand - the authors realize this and simply take the time to point out the risks associated with buying dogs from stores. They also provide advice for people purchasing their dog from a pet store - what info to look for, what to be wary of, etc... I would rather have an informed dog buyer at a pet store than an uninformed one.

This book does not claim to be the "be all end all" on husky info... it repeatedly states, "Do your research." So read this book, read others, talk to breeders and owners, go to shows, sledding competitions and you may get a glimpse of life with a husky. But nothing prepares you like living with one!

My fiance and I recently got a siberian husky puppy. She confused the heck out of us with the things she was doing. When we got this book it solved alot of our problems. It explained to us why she was doing the things she did. If you have a husky you should definatley pick this book out!
