Husky Poodle Mix Breed Information – A Guide To The Huskydoodle Dog
The husky poodle breed originated from the American plains country where they were bred to hunt elk and other large game animals. They are known for their loyalty, intelligence, courage and stamina. Their natural instinct is to follow their master wherever he goes. These dogs have been used as guard dogs since ancient times.
They are highly intelligent and loyal. Some say that they are the best of all dog breeds because they do not bark or make noise when they see danger.
They come in many colors such as black, brown, gray, white, red and yellow. There are even some with markings like a cross between a Labrador Retriever and a German Shepherd. All these variations give them variety which makes them popular among owners looking for unique companionship.
There are different types of huskies. The most common type is the purebred. They have been bred to produce offspring that will carry on the breed’s characteristics. Other varieties include crossbreeds, mixed breeds and designer crosses.
Designer crosses are those produced through selective breeding with other breeds, usually resulting in a dog having certain physical traits from both parent breeds but with additional desirable characteristics from another breed or two. Crossbreeding is when one particular breed is crossed with another.
The husky poodle mix is a cross between a purebred Siberian husky and a purebred standard poodle. There are a number of names for this type of dog, including huskydoodle, pomski, or sewaska. The mix is gaining in popularity as an alternative to the popular labradoodle. These dogs are bred by crossing a Siberian husky with another breed of dog.
They can be bred with poodles, papillons, shih tzus or bichon frises. The mixing of different types of dogs results in a dog that has the friendly, cheerful disposition of the poodle mixed with the easy-to-train qualities of the Siberian husky. It is generally thought that this type of dog makes for a better pet.
The Siberian husky poodle mix is a relatively new hybrid. While the labradoodle has been in existence since the 1980s these dogs have only been around since the last decade. The mixed breed dogs were bred as an alternative to the labradoodle, which can cost up to $2,000 due to the cost of the poodle mother. Those who could not afford such a high price tag instead opted for a husky poodle mix, which costs around $500.
The American Kennel Club does not recognize the Siberian husky poodle mix. The United Kennel Club and the Continental Kennel Club both recognize the dog. Like its name, the husky poodle mix looks like a labradoodle except that it has thicker hair than its parent breed and does not require as much grooming. The dog is highly intelligent, making it easy to train.
It is a friendly dog, making it well-liked by owners and strangers. The dog is also good around children, but should not be left alone with them as it could knock them over during playtime. It should be noted that the husky poodle mix sheds a lot so those with allergies should steer clear of the breed. The dog can live in an apartment or a house and does well in an environment with or without a yard.
Siberian husky poodle mix can become destructive if not given proper attention and training. If left alone for long periods of time the dog may misbehave or become bored, leading it to chew up furniture or tear at walls. The dog is a good watchdog since it will bark when visitors come by but is not an effective guard dog since it is more friendly than threatening.
These dogs need regular exercise. While they do not need as much exercise as a purebred Siberian husky or a poodle, they still need to be taken on a daily walk or given time to play in a yard. They are more active than the average poodle or husky but they do not have as much endurance as their purebred parents, so jogging or strenuous activity should be kept to a minimum.
Despite the high cost of the poodle mother, the husky poodle mix is still cheaper to buy than a labradoodle. These dogs typically sell for $500 to $800.
These dogs are gaining in popularity. As a crossbreed these dogs do not suffer from the certain health issues that plague purebred Siberian huskies and poodles. They also do not suffer from many of the behavioral problems either. There have been no reported health issues with this mixed breed.
