When you adopt a Husky, they become your responsibility. They look up to you for protection, and shelter and trust you to take care of their health and safety.
Just the way dogs need mental exercise with puzzle, lego, and memory, Husky need training to develop.When it comes to training your Husky, you need to allow them time to exercise. Not only is it beneficial for their physical health, but it will also help them to adapt to their new surroundings. Walk your Husky on a daily basis, and let them sniff around the local area, which will exhaust all their senses and get their brains working.
It is known that of all five senses, dogs possess, the smell is a Husky's dominant sense. That sense is linked to how they process and store information, as they possess much moreolfactory receptors than humans do and are therefore able to differentiate between smells easily. While humans are visual beings, dogs are olfactory creatures. When we smell the scent of a recipe, we break it down and see the ingredients visually where we peruse the plate and spot the ingredients.
Huskies don't function that way; they smell each the meat, the spices, the vegetables and every component individually – it's how they see the world.
You might wonder why your Husky is sniffing around something that smells bad.It's not a strange behavior. A dominant smell attracts your dog’s attention. As humans like to wear vibrant colors because they are eye-catching, dogs like to smell the butts and urine of other dogs because they're the most dominant scent in the environment. However, a dog’s nose isn’t just the way it sees the world. Its sensitivity is the reason it smells other dogs’ butts and urine. For example, a dominant smell is what attracts a dog to someone who is friendly, while an upset dog will most likely associate the smell with something threatening.
While humans have a limited set of taste buds, dogs don't. If your dog refuses to eat what you put in front of it, it probably has nothing to do with the way it tastes, but rather with the way it smells. If you want your dog to eat what you've prepared, think about adding some warm water to its plate to release some of the smell and get your dog to continue eating.
Husky have an exceptionally high level of nose specificity, which means that their noses are essentially fingerprints. When comparing them, you’ll never find two noses that are exactly the same. This is due to the extremely sensitive and detailed nature of their noses.
While you might now know why dogs smell each other’s butts, you might wonder why they like to sniff out human crotches. The reason your dog might feel compelled to sniff your private parts is the way his body tells him to seek information about the person he's smelling. They are also able to sense ovulation in humans, which is why you might find your dog intensively sniffing you at certain times more than others if you’re a female.
The bottom line is, you should never shout at your dog for wanting to sniff around. Always walk your dog when you have time, and if you're in a hurry or taking your dog for a run, try putting different collars or harnesses on them. That way, you can train your Husky to learn the difference between going on a purposeful walk with you or going out for a doggy treat, and going off for some sniffing and exploring. Soon you'll start to realize how this helps your pup synchronize with you better and not pull you for endless sniffing, exploring, and play.
