Do Huskies Shed?
Husky fur is very thick and dense. It’s not just any old dog hair either; it’s the same kind of hair that humans use to keep their fingernails and toenails clean. However, unlike human hairs, husky hairs are much thicker than your average dog hair. They’re so tough that they’ll grow back even if you cut them off completely!
If you’ve ever had a dog that sheds excessively, then you know what I’m talking about. If you have a husky or two, then you may already be familiar with the problem. You might think that it’s because they’re so big and muscular, but actually it’s due to excessive shedding. A normal sized dog will only shed once every few years while a husky could possibly shed twice per year!
The other reason why huskies shed so much is because they tend to live outdoors most of the time. That means that they spend a lot of time outside and that causes them to sweat profusely. When you add all these factors together, it leads to excessive shedding.
How Long Does Husky Hair Last?
It depends on the breed, but generally speaking a husky’s fur will last between 3 months and 2 years before needing to be brushed again.
If you want to keep your house relatively fur free, then you should definitely get a husky because they’re one of the best breeds for this purpose. Although this means that you have to do more work when it comes to fur removal, but it’s definitely worth it!
How To Control Husky Hair Everywhere?
There are a number of things you can do to control the amount of hair shed by your husky. The first and most important would be to make sure that your dog is groomed on a regular basis. The more you do this, the less hair will end up on your floor and carpets.
Secondly, if you want to keep your home fur free, then you should get a second husky! Huskies love to be with their friends and if there’s two of them then they’re bound to continually lick each other which will lead to constant shedding. This will result in an immense amount of fur that needs to be cleaned!
How To Get Rid Of Husky Hair?
We just discussed above some methods you can use to limit the amount of hair shed by your husky. However, that’s not the only thing you should worry about because you should also think about removing all the fur that has been dropped by your furry friend.
One of the best ways to do this is to buy one of those rollers designed for pet hair. You should just go on Amazon and type in “pet fur remover” and a whole list of different choices should pop up. From my experience though, the cheapest ones work just as well as the more expensive ones. Just be sure that you read the description so that you know whether or not it’s safe to use on carpets!
