I thought it would be fun to share some of the coolest facts I have learned about husky fur.
Did you know?
Siberian Husky fur not only keeps them toasty warm in those cold winter months, but also acts as a cooling system on those super hot days! For that reason, it is important to note the fact that a husky should never be shaved.
Siberian Huskies shed year round, however, twice a year, they lose their entire undercoat to make room for new fur coming in.
Huskies very rarely need baths. Most sibe's are naturally odorless and care for their fur as a cat would. By using their tongues to bath themselves. But that is not the only reason they rarely need baths - Huskies have sensitive skin and too many baths will not only create itchy, dry skin, but will also dry out the natural oils in their fur.
Grooming your husky is an ongoing chore. Since their fur decides to shed so darn much, brushing can not only help decrease the amount of hair you find in your house, but it keeps their luscious fur looking just that.....luscious.
Yep, a sibe is well known for being able to ward off any weather that comes their way. Not just snow. If you ever see someone walking a husky on a rainy day, take a look at their fur. The rain drops literally slide down their fur in droplets, thus keeping their skin nice and dry.
However, the fact that their fur acts as an umbrella can make it difficult to bath a husky.
In the photo to the right, you can see my girl Lexus when I was giving her a bath. Their fur just wants to refuse the water. It takes a long time to try and soak all of their fur in order to get the shampoo into it.
