Best Siberian Husky Books

There will be few owners of the Husky who won’t have at least one book about their pet. Although these days there’s a lot of information online, sometimes it’s just nice to be able to flick through the pages of a book. With so much competition, prices of good quality literature about your beloved breed is at an all-time low.

It’s also possible for anyone these days to write a book and have it published online. So, although the prices have come down, so has the average quality of content. It’s even possible for reviews online to be generated artificially, creating a false impression of the popularity of the book.

The reason for this article is to present to you the best three books about the Siberian Husky you can buy online. These are books that I have bought which I think are the best out of all I have purchased – and I have purchased a lot! All of these books are excellent and I can personally guarantee that you’ll get what you paid for with these. Actually, considering the prices, you’ll get a lot more.

Siberian Huskies for Dummies

Well, arguably you could have predicted this would be here. I, almost, didn’t want to include it just because some of these ‘Dummies’ books haven’t been known for providing the best quality in the world. However, this is a very good book. Don’t be put off by the old publication date, it may have been written back in 2000 but there’s a reason it is still arguably the best book on the Husky out there and the reviews it gets do appear to testify to this.

Siberian Huskies for Dummies is a little under 300 pages long and is positioned towards the beginner to intermediate dog owner. If you don’t know any other Husky owners it’s fantastic, also, many people have bought this book whilst looking for a pet and it has helped them with their decision. Once you read this, there won’t be any doubt in your mind – you will know whether this is the right dog for you, or not.

Siberian Huskies (Complete Pet Owner’s Manual)

This owners manual was written more recently than the Dummies Guide but has a bit less content, at only 96 pages. However, it is also cheaper! Don’t rule this out just because of the size, which is actually still pretty substantial.

The book has proved to be a very good read and includes around 70 color photos plus some great advice on all Husky-related subjects, such as:

  • Purchasing your first Siberian Husky.
  • What environment suits the Husky best?
  • Feeding requirements.
  • Siberian Husky Health.
  • Grooming.
  • Training.

This is one of those books that I just tend to leave lying around the house on a coffee table and visitors will just be drawn to it. Having owned it myself for some time now I can say that it is definitely one that I go back to more often than others.

Siberian Huskies (Barron’s Dog Bibles)

Barron’s dog bibles are well known in the community for providing well-researched, up-to-date information on a chosen subject. This version, for the Siberian Husky, is no different. The book is spiral-bound, which I love and each one comes with a DVD with an informal dog training course which is a nice bonus! At 184 pages, this is a book packed with information that you may need at some point during your Husky ownership.

The book covers a number of Husky-specific subjects and with its lovely color photos makes it a very easy guide to read. It provides information on the history of the breed, the different characteristics, breed-specific health challenges, training methods and how the dog can be introduced to a family environment.

The DVD was a surprise to me with this book as I didn’t actually realize I was getting it when I initially purchased, I purely pulled the trigger based on the description and previous reviews. I then put the DVD to one side for some time before thinking to myself one boring day that I’d just give it a go. I was surprised not only at the quality of the production but also at the length so if you’re struggling with obedience (with your Husky, not you!) then it may help.

Anyway, if you’d like to check this book out then take a look here (opens in a new window).

Summary

In essence, I’d recommend purchasing all three of these books as they all offer something slightly different. The books are so cheap these days the price of all three is less than a typical one-person take-away! However, if you’re after just one I’d probably recommend the ‘Siberian Huskies for Dummies’ book.
