This is one brushing session for about 10 minutes from one husky. Sometimes I feel like Danny Tanner, living with a vacuum in my hand.
It's the only thing that makes me hesitant about adopting a husky. Not sure I want to devote three-four days a week to brushing him/her for a half hour.

There's something oddly satisfying about it to me. But that's completely understandable. Having two I honestly don't get to do a lot of things I'd like to because they require a lot of attention and exercise.

But it's worth it, they are extremely loyal and loving dogs. Plus women love them ;)

A husky puppy is probably the biggest female attractor.

If you are one of those people that likes the idea of going outside with your dog off leash I wouldn't recommend a husky, they take off at every opportunity lol. They love to run! I'm not an off leash person myself, I also make sure my dogs can't get out, I have a padlock on my gate and I stack two baby gates up when I open the front door and my dogs are only half husky and don't seem to show much desire in trying to get out. They also aren't good watch dogs, they tend to like everyone. They are awesome dogs as long as you know what you are getting into when you adopt one.

I think no matter the dog I get I wouldn’t let him or her off a leash.

That's always the best policy, I know some people feel the dog needs some freedom but it's just too dangerous IMO so I've never been one to do that. Same thing goes for those leashes where the dog can walk 10-15 feet away from you, you have no control at that point and they can go into the street and get hit even with the leash on.

I would have a long leash, but that would be for parks and open fields only.

That's good, far too often I see people walking their dogs on sidewalks with those thing, even going through the crosswalk and I just want to yell at them "are you crazy?" lol I know they mean well but they are putting their pups in danger for no reason.

You have to treat them like they're a child a lot of the time. When you're walking them, they have to be on the inside of the sidewalk, away from cars. I see people, just this morning, not doing that and the guy's dog was juming up and hedging towards the passing cars. Irresponsible. Same goes for people who don't strap thir dogs in in the car, and people who drive with dogs on their laps. ALL IT TAKES IS ONE STOP SHORT!
