The Chukchi people which originated the Siberian Husky kept their dogs as household companions as well as draft dogs. Since the dogs were often in the dwellings withpeople and in close contact with children, bad temperament could not be tolerated. The Siberian Husky is still one of the most even-tempered of all breeds and Siberiansoften have a special love for children. They are also, for the most part, not aggressive with other dogs. Bad temperament is a very serious fault in a Siberian.
Siberians are seldom one-man dogs but give their affection to all members of the family and are often friendly with strangers. Most do not make particularly good watchdogs, though they can be taught to bark at intruders and their appearance is intimidating to people unfamiliar with the breed.
One of the most attractive things about the Siberian Husky is its enthusiasm. Siberians seen to get the utmost enjoyment out of life. Along with this comes an independent streak and a mischievousness so characteristic that the breed standard uses this word in describing the ideal Siberian expression. Siberians love to tease, and though they delight in pleasing their human companions, they usually have ideas of their own which they do not keep to themselves. A person who feels a dog should lie quietly in a corner except when obeying a command would probably not be happy with a Siberian Husky. For someone who enjoys a fun-loving, boisterous companion and who doesn’t mind a little back-talk, the Siberian is perfect.
