More About Me
Dakota is ok for full time workers (9am-5pm) as long as she is a central focus when people are home. She does not need to be the only permanent dog in the home as long as the other dog is friendly.
As Dakota is people orientated she needs to be part of family activities. Her owner will need to offer playtime, mental stimulation, regular exercise and a varied diet.
She will not suit homes with residents that are very young, frail, elderly, renters or time poor.
Medium - playful and moderately active. She can miss a day here and there as long as she has mental stimulation, attention and play time.
When ON a lead ...
Like most dogs she starts off pulling but settles.
Being a husky, her natural instinct is to pull and she will do so until tired.
When OFF a lead ...
She will come back but not until she has used up her energy and satisfied her curiosity unless she is too far away to know the way home.
Type of Yard Required
Medium to large interesting and secure with normal 6 foot (1.8 meter) high fencing without foot holds and preferably without being able to see through it. May dig or chew when bored.
Tolerance to Being Alone During the Day
Will alert to something strange but is not currently a nuisance barker. She is generally quiet.
Dakota will suit any of the following:
While she prefers to have company during the day she can cope alone.
Likes, Dislikes, Fears, Endearments and Quirks
Dakota needs mental activity and lots of companionship - she loves attention and affection. She is free-spirited, playful and good-natured with everyone but may stand her ground with unfriendly dogs. She also loves the outdoors and requires regular exercise. She dislikes the same food repetitively and needs a varied diet - a little bit fussy.
She is loyal and also protective of her family.
