Dog Bite Injuries from Siberian Huskies
Siberian Huskies are big dogs known for their thick coats and wolf-like appearances. Huskies are often compared to wolves because of their howling, forceful running, and active desire to hunt. Because of their dominant and stubborn nature, it’s important that Siberian Huskies receive continual obedience training.
Most dog owners cherish their Siberian Huskies. They’re part of the family and a beloved family pet. However, some unfortunate accidents happen, and people become victims of dog bites and dog attacks.
Remember: A dog breed – such as Siberian Huskies — doesn’t guarantee that a dog will or won’t be dangerous. A dog owner’s behavior toward his or her dog is the biggest factor in determining if a dog will be dangerous. A dog will be more likely to bite or attack if its owner encourages aggressive behavior. A dog also may bite if it feels sick, is a mother with her puppies, or feels threatened. That’s why it’s so important to know dog bite safety tips and to follow all state dog bite laws and state leash laws.

Steps to Take After a Siberian Husky Dog Bite
- Get medical attention immediately. Head to an emergency room or call an ambulance, or see your primary care doctor – depending on the severity of your dog bite injuries.

Ask for a copy of the medical records, if possible.
