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.
