Siberian Huskies Are Not Guard Dogs

Welcome to another edition of Siberian Saturday. I think I have mentioned a time or two before that Siberian Huskies are not guard dogs. I would like to raise the topic again since I see so many people asking about getting a husky for guarding purposes. They want a dog to keep their house safe from harm. They want a dog they can tie outside, and trust them to protect the area should any unwanted guests come by. This is simply not the right job for a Siberian Husky.

Siberian Huskies are not guard dogs
A sibe would much rather welcome a stranger into your home in the event that they may get some extra attention and/or treats and love, rather than prevent them from coming in. The only way I could actually see a husky being a good guard dog is simply based on their appearance. Most people who are not educated on the husky breed, see them, notice their wolf like appearance, and that may be enough to make someone think twice about coming into your home.

The thing with huskies is that they love people. They love attention, and to put it bluntly, they are not the type of dog to be loyal to just one person. I don't know about anyone else, but to me that definitely does not scream guard dog. I have always said that a Siberian Husky is more likely to put on a pot of coffee, and literally show a robber where the good stuff is rather than protect the house. One thing I will say, is that at the very least, when someone knocks on my door or makes noise outside, my huskies do alert me. Not by barking, but by jumping up at the door, and talking their typical husky talk. That being said, I have a pretty good feeling if someone was to try to come in the house without my knowledge, I am pretty sure they may get licked to death. Although Koda may knock them over a couple times, since he does like to jump. I repeat, Siberian huskies are not guard dogs!


Today is also Sepia Saturday. Keeping in vibe with the whole Siberian Huskies are not guard dogs topic, I thought this photo of Koda jumping up at the door would be a perfect contribution.

  1. I think I got it now! No huskies for guard dogs! Love the pics! We had a German Shepherd that put her paws right through the glass panes in the front door when my boyfriend came to pick me up! Needless to say...he waited in his car! 😳😳

  4. I think Zaphod could easily be convinced by anyone they weren't a danger. Hailey on the other hand would make a good guard dog.

  5. Earl especially enjoys licking people's skin. I'm not sure he'd so it to an intruder, though... not as tasty. ;-)

  6. I can understand why their appearance alone may make people step back. We see the same things with our Chessies and I think it is the size.

  7. NOT A GUARD DOG! Ha that is interesting because of as you mentioned their size but it's just not in the nature of some breeds.
