Looking for a new puppy is an exciting time that can also cause a lot of stress. Looking for a new companion among husky puppies may be especially difficult. Luckily, we’ve made a list of five tips to make searching for your new husky pet that much easier.

Choosing Your New Husky Puppy

If you choose a husky puppy, keep in mind that adopting or buying one is a big commitment. They have a high energy level and need plenty of protein in their food to support their lifestyles. You will also want to make sure to do your research. Decide whether you want to get a purebred puppy or rescue a dog who needs a second chance. Follow our tips to find the husky puppy that’s right for you.

1. Do Your Research On A Breeder

Unfortunately, many breeders do not follow ethical practices. There are many puppy mill operations posing as reputable breeders online. It is extremely important to find a responsible and reputable husky breeder before you buy or adopt a puppy. Look for certification from breeding organizations like the AKC (American Kennel Club).

2. Check Their Personalities

Whether you can handle a more dominant or a shyer husky will depend on how much time you have for training and socialization. Most new husky owners will stick with puppies who display more of a “middle of the road” personality. A breeder should be able to tell you whether a certain puppy will fit in with your schedule and family.

3. Ask For Their Vet Records

Husky puppies, like most, are generally taken to the vet for the first time at around 6 weeks of age. A responsible breeder will have taken care of their first checkups and vaccinations. They should also be able to provide you with complete records. A reputable breeder will also be able to provide certifications against certain health conditions, backed up by the breeding record.

4. Check The Breeding Facility

You will want to make sure puppies and their parents are kept in safe and sanitary conditions with plenty of food and water. Also check the puppies for any potential signs of ill health. A healthy puppy will not have a runny nose. They will have bright, clear eyes, and a healthy coat with no red or bald patches.

5. Consider A Rescue Organization

Many unprepared owners in the United States surrender their pet huskies to rescue organizations or humane societies. If you are prepared for the commitment a husky requires, you might want to consider adopting a dog or puppy from a reputable rescue.
