Owners of Siberian Huskies know that there is nothing quite like the relationship you have with your dog. They have some unique idiosyncrasies (like “talking,” for example) that owners of other breeds will never understand. But it’s these quirks that make us love them so much and are often a main source of laughter in our lives. It’s only natural to wonder if your Husky feels as strongly about you as you do him. If you’re unsure, here are 3 great ways to strengthen your bond with your Husky.
#1 – Play
Play is an easy and fun way to bond with your Husky. Any game he enjoys is fine, just as long as you’re doing it together! Agility trainers encourage play with their students because they have found it makes dogs listen better and work harder for their owners.
#2– Learn Your Husky’s Language
What better way to improve your relationship and deepen your bond than to understand your Husky better? In order to do that, you need to learn how they communicate through body language. Dr. Sophia Yin’s website has a host of free body language posters that can help you learn to speak “dog,” which your Husky will greatly appreciate.
#3 – Pulling Sports
An awesome way to strengthen the bond with your Siberian Husky is to give him an outlet for his natural inclination to run and pull. If you happen to be around snow, then of course sledding or skijoring are great options. However, Urban Mushing groups do the same with bikes, skateboards, and even specially made carts. Whatever sport you chose, it will definitely deepen your bond.
