Alaskan Huskies are generally reserved around strangers, they rarely bark, and generally tend to make yelping or howling noises. They are a clever breed but sometimes are picky eaters especially if there is only one dog. The Alaskan Husky is more reserved and calm than its Siberian Husky and Alaskan Malamute cousins; friendly toward its family and curious about others. Because they are positive toward strangers, they are not good watchdog material.
Alaskan Huskies are runners and need to be active in order to stay happy and healthy.
