Huskies are not good at being left alone. They are very territorial and get a bit sensitive when their owners leave the house so it is a good idea to keep a close eye on your pets when you are out.
However, this does not mean that the Huskies are lap dogs that will spend all day and all night at your feet.
They require a large amount of exercise since they are a working dog breed.
Husky in an apartment
Huskies would not make good apartment dogs because they are a highly energetic breed. You would need to make sure they are getting a lot of long walks and maybe consider sending them to doggy daycare.
Note: When you decide to get a Siberian Husky, you should get him or her from a reputable breeder. Breeders that practice good animal care standards should be in your good books.

Can Huskies be left alone during the day?
When thinking about adopting a Husky puppy, the very first thing that probably comes to your mind is whether or not these dogs can ever be left alone.
Huskies are very active and adventurous little dogs. They like to play and if they don’t have their master with them, they would much rather be playing with their toys or running around in the yard.
And while they love to play, this activity can be dangerous for them if they happen to get into a fight or an accident. So can Huskies be left alone during the day but not for long periods? No!
There are certain dangers when it comes to leaving your Husky puppy unattended and one of them is that they might run off.
These dogs are extremely curious creatures and when they don’t have their owner with them, they will learn to explore their surroundings on their own. This can be a dangerous thing if they do go astray and end up running into traffic.
If you want to leave your Husky puppy alone, then you might consider getting them a toy or a crate. This way, you can keep them safe.
Do Huskies shed a lot?
Many people ask me this question “do Huskies shed a lot?” when discussing if they’re good apartments or not. This is because of the fear to deal with the hair every time and also the fear of dog hair being in every corner of the house.
