The Siberian Husky is the James Dean of the dog world. Huskies are independent thinkers who may not always do what they’re told. While they don’t wear a leather jacket and smoke cigarettes, Huskies are known rebels whose intelligence and curiosity can sometimes lead to mischief.

Here are seven signs your Siberian Husky is a free spirit with a mind of his own:

1. He prefers to sit on the couch, and you, instead of the floor.

2. Your Husky often comes back in the house looking like this. Deal with it.

3. He’s never touched the dog bed you bought him.

4. He is often an escape artist.

5. He pees where he wants to pee, when he wants to pee. 

6. He will retaliate when made to wear a cone. And he is not cleaning up the mess.

7. If caught in the act, you will often get a look of shock, but no apology.

  • Yes, Yes, this certainly describes the breed. I have rescued Siberian Huskies since 1993. Great dog but strong-willed, independent, cusses. If you want a nice, compliant dog, I suggest a Lab, but if you desire one who will challenge you, get a husky. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

  • We have a 12 year old Siberian Husky who is the love of our life.
    Chinook joined our family on Jun 4 2004 and has ALL the husky traits and more.
    We knew what they were like as I have had one before.No Lab for us
    Husky all the way.
    I am only worried now as he has slowed down and we will be devastated when he goes.
