Siberian Husky Characteristics

Siberian Huskies are beautiful, medium-sized dogs that closely resemble their wolf ancestors. They are highly intelligent and energetic dogs that require regular exercise as well as frequent grooming. 

Due to their pack-animal nature, they are social and friendly creatures that will play with most people or animals. However, this friendly demeanor can make them lackluster watchdogs without proper training.

Fast Facts

  • Energy High
  • Size Medium
  • Trainability Willful

Developed as sled dogs, Siberian Huskies have been bred to haul light loads at medium speeds over long distances and snowy terrain. Huskies are noticeably smaller than their cousin, the Alaskan Malamute, and often only weigh between 40-60 lbs.  These dogs come in a variety of colors, including pure white, red, black, and brown.  Because their coat is not particularly oily, these dogs do not produce the same “wet dog smell” that many dogs do. That being said, huskies require frequent grooming in order to keep rogue fur-balls at bay.

 

Huskies thrive when they have access to a large yard or space to roam around. Because they are well-known escape artists, providing them enough exercise and space to play will prevent them from acting out, tearing up furniture, or trying to run away. 

 

Siberian Huskies are also famous for being a very vocal breed. Huskies often whine in a unique way that can be described as "talking" or "yelling" by loving dog owners, and these whines can be indications of anything from anxiety to affection. These whines are not to be confused with the howling that is performed by all dogs (usually when an ambulance drives by). Because they are born pack animals, Huskies are most likely to howl when left alone as a result of separation anxiety.

How dog-friendly is Illinois?

Illinois loves its pets! The state ranks very high for pet care, safety, and happiness. If you’re adopting a  new furry friend in Illinois, you’re in a great place! 


One of the top ranking sites for dog friendliness is Pawsafe. They analyze and rank each state based on factors like pet care costs, walkability scores, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws.


In their study, Pawsafe rated Illinois as the third most pet-friendly state. They found that Illinois has over 800 pet-friendly accommodations, 279 dog-friendly restaurants, 286 pet-friendly attractions, and 634 pet services.


A similar study from Safewise, another reputable ranking site, also revealed Illinois to be highly pet-friendly. They rank Illinois second just behind Washington. One of the key factors in their ranking is the high number of pet-friendly rentals in the state. In fact, 35% of rentals accept pets. This is the fourth highest percentage of pet-friendly rentals by state.

Is Chicago a pet-friendly city?

In another study, WalletHub analyzed the 100 largest cities in the United States to find the most pet-friendly city. They ranked Chicago as the 64th most pet-friendly city. The city also scored 13th for pet health and wellness. However, Chicago is more expensive for pets, ranking 90th in terms of pet budget.


SmartAsset conducted a similar study and their ratings place Chicago in a more favorable light as the 16th most pet-friendly city.


Chicago has a lot going for pets including 570 dog friendly restaurants, 12 dog-friendly shopping centers, and 46 pet businesses for every 10,000 establishments. 


A different study from the Trust for Public Land (TPL) showed that Chicago has the 52nd most dog parks per capita, with 0.9 dog parks per 100,000 residents. 

A few more dog-related facts for Illinois

Despite the great numbers in Illinois, only 32% of Illinois residents own a dog, which is well below the national average of 40%. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in the state are Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers. In the city of Chicago, the same three breeds are equally as popular, but there is also a keen interest in French Bulldogs and Rottweilers.


However, the state’s total pet ownership rate is far less than the national average as well, with only approximately 49% of Illinois families owning a pet of any kind.

Animal welfare & dog shelters in Illinois

Illinois saved 1,028 more animals in 2020 than in 2019. Out of 177 animal shelters, 126 are no-kill shelters. The overall save rate for the state is right around 82%. If Illinois can raise its save rate more, it will pass the 90% necessary to become a no-kill state. We hope they can do it!
