- We recommend a professional groomer be used 4 times a year at least!
- NEVER shave your Husky unless it is for medical reason (see vet).
- Brushing your Husky daily is highly recommended. If the coat/skin looks like it’s in bad condition, consult a groomer or vet.
- When bathing your Husky, mix the shampoo in a 2L bottle with water. Shake & squirt for maximum coverage. Same with the conditioner. Then RINSE, rinse & rinse some more. And then dry off as much as possible.
- Studies are showing that a lot of Huskies are suffering from allergies. (Itchy paws, tummy area, derriere). When one considers they are snow dogs, grass allergies are understandable. If your Husky is itching, please get them to the vet for treatment. Possibly long term (but not expensive).
Our groomers recommend brushes like these to reach the Huskies’ undercoat as well as their top coat. They help remove unwanted hair, eliminate loose and dead fur, shedding, mats, knots, tangles, hidden dirt and more.
Make sure to brush in the same direction as the hair grows to avoid hurting your Husky. Most Huskies love a good spa/brush and feel a lot better afterwards.
The spray helps long haired coats to detangle and can be used for wet and dry hair.
Cooling Down: We recommend a clam shell pool filled with water, in the garden, in shade, during the summer season. Easy to empty, clean & refill. Many Huskies don’t like swimming pools for some reason.
Dental Care: Our groomers also recommend the Flamingo dental care spray to protect the teeth against cavities. It will give your Husky a fresh breath. Regular use strengthens the teeth and helps prevent tooth loss.
Sunburns: Some dogs are more susceptible to getting burned by the sun. White dogs, for instance, tend to have fair skin underneath their fur — and a greater potential for sun damage. The belly and the ears have delicate skin, and even a dog’s nose can become dried out and sore. Always provide shade for your Husky. They will instinctively seek shelter from the sun when the rays become too intense. Walk them early in the morning or later in the evening to avoid the hottest part of the day.
Kennels are not popular with Huskies. They prefer a biggish area to sleep on, like tiles in summer. And your bed/couch/favourite chair are popular choices. We recommend the trampoline style beds. Good for joints as well. Make sure they are bigger than the Husky when you order/buy them.
