Welcome to Siberian Saturday. Today we like to cover topics, which are devoted to Siberian Huskies.
We are also linked up with Ruckus the Eskie for his Sepia Saturday blog hop. So you can enjoy some sepia photos and some husky fun facts all in one post!
Can huskies live in hot climates?
This question is asked ALL around the husky lovers world.
Many people think huskies can only thrive in one climate.
Is this true?
Yes of course huskies came from Siberia, they were raised, bred, and worked in the cold winter weather.
Huskies can live in weather that is -50 to -60 °C
Now that is cold!
But that doesn't mean that that is the only place they can live!
thick double coat. This means that people automatically think, with their thick coats, they would be far too hot in warm weather.
This is not the case. I have mentioned in a previous post, their thick double coat is a multi tasker!
Yes, their fur is what enables them to keep warm in the cold weather, but it also works as a cooling system as well.
There are always things you need to do to keep a husky, or any other dog breed, cool in the summer.
- Lots of fresh cold water.
- Frozen treats.
- Air conditioning.
- Walks in the early morning, or evening after the sun goes down.
- Brush your huskies thick fur often, getting rid of the shedding undercoat.
If you follow these things, your husky can live and thrive in places like Florida, or other warm climates.
Check out my pack, chillaxin on the Florida beaches!
Who says huskies don't enjoy some fun in the sun? Ha!
So, we can officially say that this myth which states that huskies should not live in warm climates, is DEBUNKED!
I love this photo of one of the beaches in Florida. I hope you enjoy the sepia version I created.
Thanks for spending part of your long weekend with us, and we hope you all enjoy it!
See you Monday!
