West Siberian Laika

general characteristics

West Siberian Laika was bred for hunting large game (wild boar, deer, bear). It is also considered indispensable for the extraction of sable and other animals of the weasel family. Among northern peoples it is used as a hunting hunting dog.

Due to the high activity and the desire to be constantly on the move, it is not recommended to start the West Siberian husky in apartments. With limited movement and short walks, the dog will quickly begin to lose vitality and wither before your eyes.

West Siberian Laika is one of the few breeds that combine beauty and endurance. These huskies are beautiful, but strong and can tolerate temperature changes well.

The breed has well developed hard, straight, guard hair, soft and fluffy undercoat. The hair on the head and ears is dense, short. There is more of it on the neck and shoulders, and it forms a kind of collar (clutch). The color is varied: white, gray, brown, piebald, zoned. Tiger and brown colors are not allowed. Wool is well adapted to any living conditions.

The character of the West Siberian Laika is strong, tireless and cheerful. This is an intelligent and kind dog who is infinitely loyal to its owner. Perfect for villagers or owners of large land, becoming an irreplaceable assistant in all “dog” affairs. When kept in the city, requires careful disciplinary training.


Every owner dreams of seeing his dog healthy, active and cheerful.
And, as you know, the basis of health is proper, nutritious and balanced nutrition. Even if you buy the freshest and highest quality products, buy vitamins and mineral supplements, without a biochemical laboratory you will not be able to determine the exact nutritional value of food you cook at home. That’s why PEDIGREE® has developed a special application that will help you evaluate how the diet you feed your pet meets his needs.
Proper nutrition in the first year of a puppy’s life largely determines how healthy and joyful your puppy will be in the future. Taking care of your pet’s health, PEDIGREE® recommends a combination of dry and wet diets to take full advantage of the benefits of both. You can read more about this in the article.
