Before you purchase a Siberian Husky puppy, check out the lists of Siberian Husky breeders and interview them, so that you can get some knowledge about the dog breed standards. A good Siberian Husky breeder will not sell his puppy to the first buyer who knocks at his door. He will ask you specific questions. He may want to know why you want a Siberian Husky puppy or he may even ask you to provide information or give veterinary reference for the pets that you already possess.
No organization takes responsibility for the breeders and it is up to the buyer to investigate and choose a breeder when looking for a purebred puppy. A good breeder will give a guarantee for his puppy because he has a commitment to his profession, as his reputation counts. Ask around and inform yourself before you choose a breeder from whom you take a puppy. But you should be able to get the history of the puppy to make sure of its good breeding. Also, breeders are always ready to help you by giving tips and later could even agree to help you train the puppy, so that you can always keep in touch with him.
It is therefore advisable to buy a Siberian Husky from a reputable Siberian Husky breeder and not from a pet shop. Of course the pet shop owners can be breeders too, but their main objective is to make money. Their objective is not to produce additional members for the breed, or making efforts to bring about an improvement in the genetic soundness and temperament of the breed.
A good Siberian Husky breeder often asks the prospective buyer about his knowledge of the Nordic breeds like the Siberian Husky. He makes sure that the owners know that a Siberian Husky is not a guard dog, and that it has a high prey instinct. He would also like to know whether the buyer is familiar with the nature of the Siberian Husky. The pet shops are not interested in knowing anything about the knowledge of the buyer. They don’t even care what happens to the buyer and the puppy once it has been sold. On the other hand, some breeders even offer to take back the puppy if the owners have problems with it.
Obviously the Siberian Husky breeder has much more knowledge about the dog than the pet shop owner. Often the pet shop owner buys dogs from a cheap supplier, and the screening of genetic diseases for their parents has not been done. This could be the reason why so many Siberian Huskies are suffering from health problems. Some breeders are just careless and are not particular about screening the animals.
But if you buy your puppy from a reputable Siberian Husky breeder, you can be sure to get a puppy of good quality, with a good and pure genetic history. The breeder ensures that with every breeding he can reduce the genetic problems and temperament disorders, so that the breeding is better every time. Many buyers are not very concerned about high quality and do not give much importance to genetically tested dogs, and prefer to buy it from a pet shop. But for the purebred Siberian Husky lovers, a good dog breeder can deliver a high quality Siberian Husky to be yours forever.
