Siberian Husky – Belgian Husky breederPosted on
The Siberian husky is a beautiful dog breed with a thick coat in multiple color variations. With there blue or brown eyes, they looks very nice. Many people loves the look of this wolf-a-like dog.
The Siberian Husky is believed to have been developed by the Chukchi Indians, natives of the region now called Siberia, more than three thousand years ago.
The Siberian Husky was first used as a sled dog and hunting dog to pull small loads in the extreme cold and harsh environment of Siberia.
The word “Siberia” is commonly associated with a very cold environment, however the earliest Chukchi’s probably enjoyed a much milder climate then they do today. In those warmer times they may have relied on dogs to assist them hunting the plentiful reindeer. About 3,000 years ago the climate changed for the worse and the reindeer had to travel farther and farther to find food, the reindeer dependent Chukchis had to travel with them taking their entire households along. This added sled hauling to the list of the Siberian Huskies accomplishments.
Chukchis respected their Siberian Huskies greatly and only the very young, old and sick people were allowed to ride in the sleds as passengers. The sleds where mostly used to haul goods, whilst the people walked. On occasion the Chukchi women and children pulled the sleds along side the dogs.
The Chukchi people were illiterate, they had a very complex culture. They developed a religion base on shamanistic healing and conceived of a heaven whose gates were guarded by a pair of Chukchi dogs. The Chukchis believed that anyone who mistreated a dog would not be allowed into heaven.
After a while the Chukchis learnt to domesticate reindeer, as a result the Siberian Huskies were taught to herd deer instead of killing them. Siberian Huskies were bred for multiple purpose work such as hunting, herding and hauling light loads. Now that the Chukchis had domesticated their reindeer they were used to pull the heaviest loads. Huskies were developed for their strength, endurance and agility rather than brute strength.
Because of its isolation, the breed was kept very pure until the twentieth century, when Alaskans began importing the dogs to use for sled racing.
Although largely replaced in dog sledding by the more-competitive Alaskan husky, the Siberian husky continues to be used as a recreational sled dog and companion. It also served as a sled dog with the U.S. military during WW II.
