Like all breeds there may be some health issues, like hip dysplasia and eye disease in Siberian Huskies and Alaskan Malamutes.
Some dogs may be faced with these health challenges in their lives, but the majority of Sled Dogs are healthy dogs.
Compared to other breeds, they maintain a healthy weight on less food, but you should feed them a high-quality protein-based food. We
Huskies are by nature fastidiously clean and free from body odor and parasites.
The Northern Breeds are noted as ʺeasy keepersʺ requiring relatively small amounts of food for their size.
They were bred to pull a light load at a fast pace over great distances in low temperatures on the smallest possible intake of food.
A thinner dog will live a longer, happier, healthier life. Please don’t allow your Sled Dog to become overweight.
