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.
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 South Dakota?
South Dakota is a great state for traveling with your dog and has strong animal welfare laws. Though it has some room to grow, South Dakota ranks pretty well for dog-friendliness.
We evaluated two major studies to understand how each state accommodates pets. Both studies surveyed all 50 states and ranked them for pet-friendly factors like access to pet care and services, animal cruelty laws, dog parks, outdoor spaces, and more.
The first was conducted by an animal welfare group called Pawsafe. Pawsafe ranked South Dakota as the 23rd most pet-friendly state. In this study, the state scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
The second study comes from a safety review site called Safewise. They had a harsher view of South Dakota and ranked the state as 38th most pet-friendly in the country.
But if we put these two studies together, South Dakota ranks pretty well in the middle of the pack.
