The book contains easy-to-read information full of smart tips, notable quotations, fun facts, and more than 100 adorable photos of your favorite breed that will keep you flipping through the pages. Siberian Husky also offers online support with instant access to Club Husky™ where owners can meet and interact with other dedicated Husky owners, download charts and checklists, play Husky-specific games, create their Siberian Husky avatar, take quizzes, and send Husky themed e-cards. Besides the online component, Smart Owner’s Guide Siberian Husky has two bonus DVDs ? one from Comfort Zone with D.A.P. on training and building the bond with your dog with dog trainer, Andrea Arden; and the second, a compilation of tips, do-it-yourself projects, and cooking videos from Dog Fancy and DogChannel.com. This comprehensive package is a must-have for every Husky owner.

Dedicated to the Siberian Husky, the world’s consummate sledding dog, beloved for his affectionate, people-loving personality as well as his endurance on the race, this Smart Owner’s Guide, created by the editors at Dog Fancy magazine, offers the most up-to-date and accurate information every dog owner needs to become a well-informed caregiver for his dog. Illustrated with color photographs of adorable puppies and handsome adults, this easy-to-read primer is designed in a modern, lively manner that readers will find user-friendly and entertaining.

Each Smart Owner’s Guide offers a description of the breed’s character and physical conformation, historical overview, and its attributes as a companion dog. The reader will find informative chapters on everything he or she needs to know about acquiring, raising, and training this remarkable purebred dog, including: finding a breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy; preparing for the puppy’s homecoming, shopping for supplies, and puppy-proofing the home; house-training; veterinary and home health maintenance; feeding and nutrition; and grooming. Obedience training for basic cues (sit, stay, heel, come, etc.) and solving potential problem behaviors (barking, chewing, aggression, jumping up, etc.) are addressed in separate chapters, as are activities to enjoy with the dog, including showing, agility, therapy work, and more.

Entertaining tidbits and smart advice fill up colorful sidebars in every chapter, which the editors call “It’s a Fact,” “Smart Tip,” “Notable & Quotable,” and “Did You Know?” Real-life heroes and rescue stories are retold in full-page features called “Pop Pups” and “True Tails.” Recipes, training, and care tips are highlighted in the “Try This” feature pages.

The Smart Owner’s Guide series is the only series that offers readers an online component in which dog owners can join a breed-specific online club hosted by dogchannel.com. At Club Husky, owners of the breed can find forums, blogs, and profiles to connect with other breed owners, as well as charts and checklists that can be downloaded. More than just 20,000 pages of solid information, there’s a host of fun to be had at the club in the form of downloadable breed-specific e-cards, screensavers, games, and quizzes.

The Resources section of the book includes contact information for breed-related organizations and rescues, as well as practical guidance on traveling with dogs, identification, and locating qualified professionals to assist the dog owner, such as pet sitters, trainers, and boarding facilities. This information-packed Smart Owner’s Guide is fully indexed.
