Today, I would like to go into whether or not huskies are happier in packs, rather than being the only dog in the house. Huskies are pack animals, that is a fact, BUT does that mean a husky cannot be happy as an only dog? Lets find out.
"Should I Get Another Dog?" Some of those tips and thoughts relate to this post as well, however with huskies there are a few differences. Huskies are pack animals, as I mentioned before, but did you know that a pack doesn't have to be just other dogs?
Packs consist of people too! Huskies are people dogs, pack dogs, they love to be around other beings. They are not a dog who you can leave chained up in your yard all day with no interaction - although in my opinion, no dogs should be treated that way. As most of you know, I have 3 huskies. My reason for having 3 is not because I felt they needed more dogs around them, it was more for my own personal husky addiction! Are they happier having each other around? That is a complicated question...Mika I think would have been fine as an only dog because she likes her alone time, but the other two, I think they would be lost without each other.
Yes, huskies are happier in packs. No, that does not necessarily mean multiple dogs. As I mentioned above, huskies love to be around other beings whether that is simply their human family, or other dogs included. Huskies can definitely be just fine as an only pet. But the fact remains that you need to know your own dog. There is no real answer to this. In one family (or pack) your husky could love having other dogs around, but in another, they may prefer just chillaxin' alone with their humans.
