3 Things You Didn't Know About Siberian Huskies

By JennaDrady. | Dog Info

Siberian Huskies are an amazing breed. And no, i'm not just saying that because I happen to be owned by 3 of them. ;)

  Siberian Huskies Facts: Why You Need to Do Your Research. Huskies are unique, gorgeous, stubborn, and just an all around fun dog to be around. But lets put those facts aside for a moment and talk about why Siberian Huskies grew to be so popular.
  1. T.V shows such as Game Of Thrones and Twilight are blamed for the growing of Siberian Husky popularity.
  2. In the past 5 years, there has been a HUGE 700% rise in Siberian Huskies and other "wolf like" breeds being abandoned or surrendered.
  3. The Siberian Husky Welfare Association claims to have struggled handling DOZENS of calls each week with people wanting to offload their huskies, and other snow dogs.

"But, huskies are so beautiful, so loving and friendly."

  This may be true, but a Siberian Husky is not for everyone, and definitely not fit for a first time dog owner. The popular book and t.v series, Game Of Thrones stars the Stark family. The Starks started out the show with 6 children, who adopted 6 Direwolf pups. After this shows mad popularity, everyone wanted a "Direwolf." (Which of course resemble breeds such as the Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute and so on and so forth. Don't get me wrong, Game of Thrones is one of my all times FAV shows, however people see the beauty of an animal on a TV show, and instantly want them for themselves.

What breed did play the Direwolf pups in Game Of Thrones?

  Siberian Huskies FactsThrough my research, I found that the wolves are being played by Northern Inuit dogs. These can be mixes of Siberian Huskies, German Shepherds, and a variety of Inuit dogs. Siberian Huskies, and Malamutes being two of the top "wolf like" breeds, people began adopting them like crazy, without first doing research on them. Like we said above... yes, huskies are an amazing breed - but, because people do not take the time to do the necessary research, far too many get dumped in a shelter, or even abandoned onto the streets. Have you ever thought about adopting a Northern breed? If so, what peeked your interest? Siberian Huskies Facts and Dog Seat Covers: Cargo, Dog Bed Liner, Bed Cover: 30% Off Premium Seat Covers

Puppy misadventure

My 8 month old lab puppy ate something and it required a trip to the vet. They administered peroxide to induce vomiting. He seemed unaffected by the entire experience and after waiting 45 minutes with no results, we were sent home. Naturally, he threw up in the car on the way home. I had recently bought the split rear seat cover. It saved the back seat of my car and cleaned up beautifully. I can only imagine how the cloth seat would have absorbed the odor and stain without the protection of the seat cover. Buying your seat cover was the smartest decision I've made. Love the hammock option.

XL rear seat hammock cover

I own a 2015 Toyota Tundra CrewMax. I was concerned that the XL seat cover wouldn't be big enough for our pups. However, after installing it easily, our pups took to it immediately! Ellie loved the hammock part that comes off the seat a little and slept in it on one of our most recent road trips.

Perfect Fit!

We had fallen back to just putting a sheet over our seats as our Bernese Mountain Dog and our cars never found a perfect match with any of the seat covers we tried until this front seat cover. We immediately put in an order for the backseat cover from 4Knines to give our BMD more room.

Customer Service

I ordered a dog cover for my rear seat. When I placed it, one of the straps was not holding tight so I sent an email to the company that day. I received an immediate response and an immediate replacement. I was so impressed! I love the no hammock cover. It's perfect!
