Husky is a polar dog bred to pull sleds in harsh northern climates and is one of the fastest dog breeds.

Huskies are also kept as family pets but they are primarily working dogs with high levels of intelligence, energy and athleticism.

Huskies can be easily trained to participate in a range of different activities, including skijoring, dog hiking, carting, dog scootering, and so on.

Huskies like to make themselves useful and prefer to be in work mode rather than in idle mode all the time.

Completing assignments and pulling people, cargo and other animals for amusement of others, such as in dog sports, or for helping people living in the north is how Huskies prefer to put their intelligence to good use.

Not even close. Working with 5 different veterinarians while going to college and volunteering for many animal organizations. Not to mention owning several of the top intelligent breeds I’d have to say without question the Dobermans were head and shoulders above the others. Not only were they fast learners but they thought for themselves. In other words they weren’t little robots like the other breeds above them claiming to be more intelligent. Problem solvers is what I would best describe them. I think the reason people aren’t willing to give the Doberman it’s dues are because of their independent thinking… Read more »
