Siberian Husky Travel

Siberian Husky travel can be challenging. Due to the size of these animals, a large vehicle is almost a must. They can do well in the back seat of an automobile provided there's room for them to stretch out and sleep comfortably. Regardless of the vehicle, ensure there is adequate ventilation, preferably a partially opened window. Be sure to only open the window enough for your husky to get their nose through but no more than their head. If opened too far, they can and will attempt escape through the window. One other very important thing to remember is to deactivate the switches on vehicles equipped with power windows. When your husky stands on the doors armrest, they often activate the window switch which can either open the window further allowing them to escape or close the window on their necks which can lead to injury or suffocation. Most vehicles are equipped with a child safety button on the driver's door which prohibits the activation of the other window switches in the vehicle.

I recommend stopping every 2-3 hours to let your husky relieve themselves and get a drink. Remember to always keep them on a leash. One other important thing to consider during Siberian Husky travel is pet friendly hotels.

Whenever possible, your husky should be restrained in the vehicle. For minivans and SUV's, you can use a pet barrier like the one pictured here. This keeps your husky in the rear compartment of your vehicle. Another alternative is a pet carrier. If this is the way you choose to go, please read the crate training article. Other options are available such as dog carriers, car seats & harnesses. Regardless of what you choose, just be sure your siberian husky has enough room to lay comfortably.
