Husky.... lol

I have a siberian husky.. they need lots of exercise and shed loads of hair

My mates have Alaskan Malamutes, very boisterous but good with children. Around £700 for a good pedigree

Need a hell of a lot of walks, big tendancy to pull you when taking it out, very dominant in terms of pack leader when they get a bit older, need a lot of work put in if you have the time and patience.

A bloke has one that i see in our local school playground... he walks his on roller blades lol - gets the dog to pull him along.

TBH each to their own when it comes to dogs... as much as i find them very nice looking dogs theres something about them that to me means hard work and i dont know how good they are around children... but not for me. Saying that i know lots of people with bull terriers, staffies, rotties and dobermans that all say they are fine around children. Personally i wouldnt trust them but thats just me ;-)

It's not the dog.......it's how it's been treated ;-)

I'll be getting a staffy when I move to my next house

There are a few breeds of Husky. My brother had a white Siberian. Very good around kids.

They are not the brightest dogs in the world, and are hard to train to walk off a lead, which is a problem because they want to pull your arm out of its socket on the lead.

Have a talk with a breeder for their opinion, as all dogs are different, and only someone with a lot of dogs can give a better all-round view on them.

Sorry but i disagree there. Certain breeds are more prone to dominance and aggression, hence the reason why certain breeds are banned in this country. To a certain extent yes is does depend on upbringing, but certain breed have a higher agression rate than others.

To the OP, my brothers puppy cost £550 approx 6 years ago.

we'll have to disagree on that

I've been attacked by a collie, yorkshire terrier, alsation........but my brothers and mates staffies are as soft as anything. My older brother had a pitbull some years ago that was trained well and never harmed a soul. Dogs are pack animals and ALL prone to agression. I don't believe it's breed specific

ps my mates puppy looked a lot like this

Used to put a harness on my brothers, and make his dog pull us on a skateboard. Good times.


They shed loads of hair though, you can pull it out by the fistfull.

Sounds like a huge food bill

you need to give a LOT of thought to whether you should get a dog, and then what type you should get. it might be better to think "what type of dog would i be the best owner of?"

some need much more care and exercise than others.



a dog's for life blah blah blah
