FACTS AND INFORMATION ABOUT THE LABRADOR HUSKY

LABRADOR HISTORY

The Labrador Husky mix combines two highly intelligent dogs with very different personalities: The Labrador Retriever is friendly and eager to please, while the Siberian Husky is known for being independent and challenging to train. 

Labrador Retrievers first breeding took place in Newfoundland, Canada, as fishing companions for fishermen who needed hardy dogs that could swim long distances and retrieve heavy fish nets from cold water. Currently, they are “the most popular dog in America” for over 10 years running since 1991, according to the American Kennel Club.

LABRADOR HUSKY APPEARANCE

The Labrador Husky is a breed of dog with a medium to large size and an average lifespan of 12 to 14 years.

Size

The Labrador Husky is between 21 and 25 inches (53–64 cm) tall at the withers and weighs between 45 and 80 pounds (20–36 kg). Males are obviously taller and heavier than females. The AKC standard for the Siberian Husky states that they should be “medium sized, light boned dog, slightly longer than they are tall. The body is compact, never racy or refined.”

Labrador Huskies have erect ears, and their eyes can be blue, brown or one of each color. Their tails are heavily furred and curved over the back when moving.

Males and females

The male Labrador Husky can weigh as much as 80 pounds (36 kg), while the female can weigh up to 60 pounds (27 kg). They are medium to large dogs with an average lifespan of 12 to 14 years. Male Labrador Huskies typically have thicker fur than females.

Coat: Dense, soft top coat; thick, wooly undercoat

Colors: Black, red, tan, white, brown

Shedding: Heavy

TEMPERAMENT

Being a cross between the Labrador Retriever and the Siberian Husky, you can determine its temperament by looking up its parent breeds traits and behavior.

The Labrador Husky is an active and energetic dog that loves to play, so they are better suited for families with older children who will provide them with plenty of exercise and entertainment. They are an intelligent breed that is happiest when they have a job to do, such as participating in agility competitions or sledding contests, although they don’t always make excellent watchdogs due to their friendly nature. These dogs usually make great family pets because they are loyal and affectionate towards their owners, but they need plenty of room to run around since they tend to get bored easily if they do not get enough exercise or attention.

HEALTH

Labrador Huskies are generally a healthy breed. They do have some genetic health issues that they can inherit from the parent breeds if the breeder is not careful to breed dogs who are free of those genes. The following is a list of the main health problems in Labrador Huskies:

Hip dysplasia

Eye problems (cataracts, glaucoma)

Heart problems (cardiomyopathy)

Epilepsy and seizures

Labrador Huskies come in three sizes, which means that there are a lot of different combinations of genes from the parents. If both parents are small, then so will their puppies be. If one parent has a gene for hip dysplasia, and the other does not, then only 1/4 of the puppies will inherit that gene and if one parent has a gene for cataracts and the other does not, then only 1/4 of the puppies will inherit that gene. 

So, it is possible to get a puppy who has none of these genes and is therefore healthy. But if you get a puppy from two parents who both have these genes, your puppy may inherit them as well. It all depends on the genes that each individual puppy gets from its parents.

LABRADOR HUSKY CARE 

Labrador Husky care is not difficult to maintain. In general, this breed is very healthy and doesn’t have any health problems. However, like all dogs, they require a lot of attention and care to be happy and healthy. Make sure to pay attention to the condition of their coat, their eyes and ears as well as their nails and teeth. In addition, you should feed them correctly based on the right amount of nutrients they require at different ages.

Labrador vs Husky

Labradors require regular brushing and bathing to stay clean and healthy. Huskies need regular grooming as well but it’s not necessary for them to have their coats trimmed every time you get them groomed. Instead, you can use these tips on how to groom a Labrador Husky mix:

  • Brush your dog’s fur from head to toe at least once or twice per week. If you don’t do this, then his skin will become dry and flaky which could lead to infections or even death if left untreated!
  • Use a comb with rounded teeth to detangle any knots in his coat before shampooing him so that you can remove all dirt and debris easily without causing damage to his coat or skin.
  • Shampoo your dog using lukewarm water every other day when possible; otherwise, use cool water instead since hot water will strip away most of its natural oils leaving behind unsightly flakes on his skin.

Look at the ingredients list on the label of the bag or can of food and make sure that there are no fillers such as corn or soybeans, which have no nutritional value and can cause health problems in some dogs. The first ingredient should be meat or meat by-products and not corn or soybeans (unless it is in a percentage).

CONCLUSION

These dogs are social, and enjoy being with people more than other dogs.
