Wooly Coat Siberian Huskies

Although the Siberian Husky has a double coat (downy soft undercoat and longer guard hairs), the hair should not be excessively long as with the dogs pictured on this page. Long hair is not only a fault in a show dog Siberian, it can be dangerous in a working Siberian. The long hair collects snow, possibly causing irritation and injury. It is also a concern because it takes longer to dry, a dangerous fault in extremely cold weather.

"Wooly" Siberians may look interesting, but they should not be bred as they do not perpetuate the desired Siberian look. We invite you to look at the differences between an appropriate length of coat and the overly long wooly type.
