i had a full blood malamute & he would be a total pain the ass until you put him outside in the cold.he would make himself a bed in the snow & go to sleep.they do need liquid water though to keep going.

They do love snow drifts...

Remember these dogs are from Siberia where the record high in the Summer is 57 degrees and winter temps are routinely in the 50 below range for 8 months.

I'm sure some uninformed will apply humans standards to an animal but it doesn't change facts.My dogs would rather sleep in a snowdrift then come in the house.

It's currently -28 outside, going down to -32. My sled team is outside, like they have been for the past 20 years (not the same dogs!). Provide them with a good house out of the wind with lots of straw, quality food and lots of water and they are fine. They come in for visits, but overheat rapidly.

Our husky would scratch and wine at the door if you brought her in during cold weather, we just made sure she had water and food and she stayed outside all winter, she spent most of the summer inside

I had a samoyed That was the same way. Colder it was the better he liked it. 60 degree temps outside had him panting. He got shaved march to October.

Like others have said, sled dogs don't seem to notice cold at all. Make sure they have water and GOOD food, and they are fine. Sled dogs should be quiet at night, but they howl unlike most dogs. My dog is a Malamute cross, and he will not come inside when its REALLY cold. When it's 70 he's burning up, but when it's -10 he's chillin in a snow bank. During the winter my dog sleeps on the deck up on a chair where the wind can whip around him.

Look at the dog's overall living conditions. Is he standing in shit? Does he have food and water? Does he get regular attention every day and plenty of excercise?

My dog HATES living inside even though he gets out several times a day to run the yard and a few times a week he goes to play with other dogs. He gets Taste of the Wild food, plus raw, plus home cooked, and lives the life of a king. He'd rather run wild.

Never did shave mine, I was informed it actually done more harm than good, as they will have more trouble "blowing" their coats, and that the layers would help them to stay insulated from the heat.

Beagles that as bred as hunting dogs are left ought. Side year around. They cannot be house dogs and hunting dog. So if a Beagle can be left outside in cold temps... a Husky can especially. However... it depends if this dog has been an outside dog since a young pup.

I have a Husky and when its cold and it snows... she has a field day outside and it is hard to get her in. She loves it.

However... myself personally... I can't leave my dogs outside. I hate that Beagles are left outside as hunting dogs... during the day I'm OK with it but night time... I bring my dogs in. My Beagle and Husky....

However... my personal feelings does not mean its cruel to leave a dog outside.... the dog might be lacking nutrition... or its simply lonely. If its left outside and no one ever pays attention to this dog... then it will want attention. Huskys are talkers.... they will talk or howl or whine to tell you what they want. If you feel the dog is being mistreated... please call... but the temps are OK for the dog. Again... I personally don't like it... but that's my opinion.

My males howl at me and I do my best howl back.We go can go back and forth for 10 minutes.They'll do the same thing if I bark at them.The females just look at me and wag their tail.
