Thinking about buying a Siberian Husky puppy?
Do your research before considering a Siberian Husky
Please read the information on the following Web Sites
And - we want to emphasise - they shed a lot of coat!
If you are seeking a companion dog, your top two
concerns should be health and temperament.
No breeder can make a puppy to order regarding
colour or sex. Siberian Huskies are all so individual
and each is special in its own way.
You are better off having the breeder match you to
a puppy whose personality & drive complement
your family dynamic and needs.
We do not breed specific coat and eye colour combinations
A long coated or woolly variation
Some Huskies have a much longer than usual and / or woolly coat. This is a genetic throwback and has occurred in litters from all kennels. The pups are very cute and have the best temperaments - always gentle, friendly and even tempered. This is such a bonus as long coated Huskies need daily grooming, with a long weekly session - a large commitment of time which needs to be considered before taking in a long coat pup.
Failing to groom out the very fine and woolly undercoat results in a matted, knotted and dirty coat which can harbour fleas and grass seeds and often leads to hot spots - itchy, weeping skin lesions which easily become infected and painful.
Before buying a long coated Siberian Husky, PLEASE read the attached article and look at the pictures of neglected long coated dogs.

The Siberian Husky: An Analysis of the Standard by three Breeder Judges
Here is some information about our philosophies on producing quality Siberian Huskies, and how we look after our dogs at "Mikulov".
Our adults are X-rayed and scored for hip dysplasia as a routine procedure and have their eyes tested several times through their lives. We have hip scored more than 50 Siberian Huskies which we either own or have bred. As conscientious and dedicated breeders, we know we have done everything possible to ensure that all our pups will grow into healthy dogs, free of physical handicaps and capable of leading long, healthy and pain free lives as companions and pets. The oldest Siberian Husky bred here is currently Mikulov Take Me Home ET - Denver. He is happy and healthy in retirement. The breed has a life span of 14 or 15 years and they are generally healthy until the very end of their lives.
Our original Siberian Husky, Ch Chukchii Glacier Girl ET
(3 December 1988 - 20 September 2004)
was the oldest living Husky in Australia for some months through 2004, and had an exceptionally long life. As many of our current dogs are descended from Chi, it is reasonable to expect a long and healthy life for your pup.
As members of Dogs ACT and registered breeders with the
Dogs NSW, we abide by the Code of Ethics which have guidelines about how young (and how old) females should be before having puppies, vaccination and worming regimes for puppies,
how old puppies must be before they can be separated from their mother and many aspects of dog care and welfare which help ensure that we produce healthy, happy
puppies for you to enjoy for years.
We also occasionally have an adult show champion needing a retirement home. These dogs are usually 2 to 4 years old and are obedience trained. We consider the quality of the home a top priority for these older dogs and are willing to negotiate a price to fit your budget.
