A little about the breed
The Siberian Husky is a northern dog bred by the Chukchi of the north-eastern part of Siberia as a sled dog, for transporting goods and moving people in sleds. There were Huskies by a cross between Chukchi huskies and aboriginal wild dogs.
This type of transportation (dog sledding trips) is still used in the northern regions as a form of transport.
Huskies are very beautiful, as well as active, sociable and hardy dogs with a playful or as they are also called "childish" character. These are not guards and hunters from them are also so-so.
For the beauty of the breed, many people want to have a husky in an apartment, but it is not recommended to do this, because dogs like coolness (a slight minus: from 0 to -10 degrees) and it is hot in apartments; huskies do not bark, but more often howl; and most importantly, their irrepressible energy and endurance - dogs love communication, they frolic, play and, as a result, are naughty in the house if they are left alone. For these reasons, often the owners can not cope and the huskies begin to move to another house, which is how several dogs of refuseniks got into the Husky Park of the Gazprom GTC.
The color of the iris of the eyes of the husky is different, and not only blue, there is also brown; one eye is brown, the other is blue (heterochromia. In the people, dogs with different eye colors are called "harlequins", and according to signs they bring good luck); and even one of the eyes can be two - colored-this is normal and does not affect vision in any way.
According to the color of the husky's coat, there are more than 12 different suits. The most popular (classic) is a gray-white color (wolf). The second most popular is black and white. Next - light and dark red, chocolate colors. The rarest are considered to be monophonic colors-pure black and pure white.
Dog sledding in Husky Park
Dogs in Husky Park can run in sleds.
In winter, if desired and favorable weather conditions (when there is enough snow), you can ride a sled in a dog sled in the park, for a fee.
Ahead of the sled (sleigh) runs a team consisting of one person for riding, usually of 8-10 dogs. Behind, on the runners of the sled, there is a man who controls the team-a kayur. The very first pair of dogs in the team are the leaders, they are the most experienced, non-confrontational and intelligent dogs that distinguish the voice of the kayur and, being the "steering wheel", leads the whole cart in the right direction.
