Huskies stay outside in the cold, indicating that their relationship to low temperatures is relatively good. Remember, that even though they are cold tolerant dogs, everything has its limits. Can any husky withstand low temperatures for a long time? We will talk about these factors below, giving you an overview of their relationship to cold weather.
While their fur protects them from low temperatures, start noticing when your dog is feeling cold. This way, you will be able to understand whether you should keep your canine inside.
Before going into specific details, I want to remind you of an important element related to this topic. Huskies are known about their high tolerance towards cold weather, which is not absolute. It is a situation which depends on several factors. They can withstand a cold that drops to -75 ° F (-59 ° C), but it is based on: how the dogs growth cycle, their age or even the condition of their fur.
Here is how to understand what I said: Huskies raised in cold places and engaged in sports (running, racing), withstand the cold pretty well. While huskies that have been growing with people in their homes, are more sensitive to low temperatures. That’s the difference. Consider the dog’s history before taking it for granted that he endures the cold.
With that said, here is how to understand if your husky is cold on not.
3 Main Signs That It Is Too Cold For Your Husky
-Shivering is one of the main indicators that your husky is cold.
Understand that at this point the canine needs to live in a warm place, in order to normalize his body temperature. When a dog sleeps in an environment exposed to natural factors like wind and rain it feels cold. On the other hand, if he lives in a proper environment he will feel much better.
-Anxiety or fear is the next indicator.
Refusal to go outside is a factor which shows that your husky is cold and the temperature is below what your dog can tolerate. Barking every time he looks you in the eye, also shows that he does not feel well so pay attention to such details.
-Ice in husky’s fur is a clear sign of low temperature.
When huskies fur doesn’t melt the ice, it means that their body is not producing enough heat to warm itself. In short, low temperature is higher than his body can handle.
These are some elements to keep in mind in order to act quickly and properly in similar situations.
How to keep your husky warm at low temperatures.
This is for owners who have decided to keep their dogs outdoor.
