Siberians are nice fit for homes with children. As born pack dogs, they enjoy being part of a family and get on well with other dogs, but don’t like being left alone for long periods of time. Positive training methods like clicker training works very well with this smart breed. New owners shouldn't bother picking up a "Beware of Dog" sign—Siberians' innate warmth and love of making new friends make them indifferent watchdogs. These are extremely energetic dogs who can’t resist chasing small animals; they need secure running room (a fenced-in yard or dog park), and walking them off-leash is risky. An attractive feature of the breed is fastidiousness: Siberians are naturally clean, with little doggy odor.
Health issues in the breed are mainly genetic, such as seizures and defects of the eye and congenital laryngeal paralysis. Hip dysplasia is not often found in this breed; however, as with many medium or larger-sized canines, it can occur. The Orthopedic Foundation for Animals currently has the Siberian Husky ranked 155th out of a possible 160 breeds at risk for hip dysplasia, with only two percent of tested Siberian Huskies showing dysplasia.
Siberian Huskies used for sled racing may also be prone to other ailments, such as gastric disease, bronchitis or bronchopulmonary ailments ("ski asthma"), and gastric erosions or ulcerations.
