The combing methods of this hybrid Ausky vary from dog to dog. Although both dogs have a double coat of hair, which is made up of a thick, straight tube guard hair, it is of a very different texture, and the top hair of Siberian Husky is much longer than that of Australian cattle dogs. This means that if your dog mimics ausky's Australian parents on fur types, ausky will only need to take a shower occasionally and brush his teeth regularly with a hard bristle brush or a smooth brush.
Because ausky has a thick double layer of hair, you need to spend some time every day brushing. In this regard, we recommend that you use a smooth brush or a stiff brush. Because both parents are famous for shedding, you have to be very careful in spring and autumn, because they shed more in this season. You are also advised to trim ausky's nails and clean ausky's ears from any wax deposits to keep ausky neat.
The grooming is also a very important aspect of ausky care. They have the fur of their parents, but the thickness depends on which side they like. If ausky follows Australian cattle and dogs, the fur of ausky will be more eccentric or rough. If ausky follows husky in Siberia, his coat will be softer. Those who lean on the side of Australian cattle and dogs only need to bathe occasionally and brush their teeth regularly with a bristle brush. For those on the Siberian Husky side, brushing teeth requires something to do every day. They also shed easily, especially in spring and autumn.
For your Ausky feeding, you have to avoid buying cheaper dog food. Most of these brands contain grains, and they may not be able to provide the nutrition your dog needs. You want to make sure your dog food is of good quality and comes from plant and animal sources. Ausky will benefit from a high protein and omega-3 diet. You can supplement ausky's food with chicken, fish and even some fruits or vegetables! This will ensure the physical development of your puppy.
In order to maintain ausky, you should pay close attention to its health condition and provide enough play and work opportunities for it. These dogs like open spaces, so we suggest you take them to the park. You have to take care of these little things, because if an ausky gets angry, it can howl and even be destructive. We also recommend that you have a physical examination at least once a year to ensure your health. As we all know, ausky has no major health problems and is a healthy breed. However, ausky may have some rare health conditions, such as cataract, corneal dystrophy, deafness, hip dysplasia or progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), and you can consult your veterinarian. Because these ausky are usually very healthy, their life span is about 15 years. So, ausky can be your best friend for a long time.
Ausky is a highly intelligent variety, and when ausky is not busy with trouble making, they are very capable of learning commands. These animals don't like being caged, they can inherit the instinct to bite from Australian dogs, or from the husky gene in Siberia to the impulse of high prey. These features may make some members of the breed unsuitable for children around and smaller or fast moving pets, depending on the dog's personality and early training and socialization.
These dogs are quite protective. If you don't want to socialize with ausky when you are very young, ausky will become fierce when meeting new friends. Your child will like ausky because these dogs are very friendly to children. Since the parents are tolerant of other animals, ausky should have a similar nature. However, if you don't provide ausky with activities that make him happy, ausky will become arrogant and strong.
Ausky is a very smart breed, so ausky needs to start training at a young age. Ausky can be stubborn, so internal rules must be ingrained as soon as possible. Ausky can inherit the "runaway artist" driven by Husky or the sharp inclination of the Australian cattle dog. Ausky must interact with children and other small pets as soon as possible. They have the instinct of grazing and hunting, which may pose a threat to other pets belonging to rodent family, such as rabbits. Being strict and strong is the best way to train ausky. Remember to keep fun! Take it as a game and always remember to be patient and friendly with your ausky.
Ausky's high energy can be a good match for an outdoor child, although it's hard for children to get the dog out of the way. As long as your dog and child have a healthy mutual respect, ausky will be a good companion. This clever dog will never hurt ausky's family. Australian dogs and Siberian Husky dogs are usually peaceful and tolerant in their relationships with dogs, cats and other animals. But the key to building a harmonious family with your Eskimo Dogs and other pets is to interact with ausky when she was young. Although ausky is usually mild, ausky's "working dog" nature can cause some friction if an ausky is not stimulated or undersported. It's all about personal character, but be sure to give your ausky enough exercise and plenty of opportunities so that she won't try to catch up with everyone at home. Like any dog, ausky should be supervised around any small animal or prey at home. Ausky doesn't have a lot of hunting instinct, but most sports dogs like to chase, so if you're going to introduce your guinea pig to your Australia it's better to be safe, not regret.
Ausky is a highly active and agile dog. Therefore, its activity level is very high. Because it is a kind of work, it likes to be busy doing something all day. Ausky doesn't like that you don't provide enough sports for ausky. They are a very outgoing dog and would like to take a walk with you. If you can't take ausky out for some reason, we suggest that you provide some educational toys for ausky to keep him busy. Even if ausky is medium size, we would not recommend you go to ausky if you live in some apartments. Because these dogs are eager for sports, they will never like to live in a small space.
Exercises are important to ausky. Ausky needs regular mental and physical stimulation. Walking and playing outdoors are good ways to exercise your dog. If your dog can't be outside, consider giving ausky a puzzle to keep him busy. Ausky can't live in an apartment. Ausky prefers country houses, or those with big lawns, so that ausky has space to roam. If ausky is tired of being in a small space, he may become destructive or howling.
