We have a one year old siberian husky who has an amazing personality and an incredible amount of energy. We are considering getting another one, thinking that it will give the first some company, and of course because they are the best dogs in the world! Are there any guidelines to bringing a second dog into the home?  Should they both be male?  Does it matter if one is agressive, or that they may be from the same mother?  Any tips are appreciated!

My husband and myself have 2 siberian husky, both male, one who's 6yrs. and the other who's 2yrs. They're from different mothers, but get along like they're brothers. They really keep each other company, but get ready because they'll team up on you to get their way.

I had two Siberians who were brother and sister.  We always allowed them to sleep together, eat together, go out on walks together, etc.  These dogs were the sweetest and were very passionate of us as their owners.  There were times, though, where they did make each other bleed through some fighting which we could not stop, even if we were to physically interfere.  They would decide when they were done and would lick each other's wounds to say sorry.  There was another time when the fighting was so horrible we thought to separate them in the kennel, so we put some more of the metal fencing...Come morning, there was a hole chewed through the fencing and there they were sleeping together like nothing at all happened the night before.

I have a Siberian right now.  We actually got him after already having one dog that is about lab size with German Shep and rottweiller markings.  The two would go at it once and awhile.  The first dog would know when to stop taunting the husky from our voice or else he would turn it into a play session...he was too quick for the husky most of the time to ever bleed.  All in all they got to be great friends and companions.  They learned how to beg from each other and picked up "habits," like kicking their paws after doing their duties.  Unfortunately they ran away together and we were able to only find the husky...He does get lonely at times.

Just remember that it is a process of getting them to get along :)  It's always best for the husky to FIRST meet in a public place, like a park or something...and then take them both to the house after they have gotten acquainted.
