About this Breed

The Alaskan Husky is essentially the Siberian Husky on steroids. These guys were bred from Siberian Huskies in order to create a more physical and hardworking Husky. Compared to their Siberian brothers, the Alaskan Husky is larger, leaner, and has greater endurance. These are happy-go-lucky dogs that love everyone. The Alaskan Husky is very intelligent and requires a lot of exercise. Owners must be a firm pack leader in order to keep a cooperative Husky. This breed also does not like to be alone, they like to constantly socialize!
