All dogs should be fed a high quality dog food and should be fed an amount according to their weight, not their breed.
Answer by Phil
white meat, fish, olive oil, vegetables & bananas mixed with organic dry dog food with Vit E based preservatives) , a little garlic & onion does them a lot of good as well, but mix it all up and you have a nice diet. Amount well ….. depends on the weight and metabolism of your husky. Some 40 klg. dogs will eat four cups, some have higher energy requirements and eat more …. some have quick/better metabolism and break down the food better and eat less. Get the average for the weight and then work it by ear. Feed 3 times a day and no later than 8pm, dependent if the dog sleeps during the night, if he does and you feed him later he might end up being obese.

its all based on their weight. i have a 1 yr old Siberian husky fed pedigree. not the best dog food, but she has such a sensitive stomach if we change it she stops eating. anyways, i feed her 2-4 cups a day as directed on the back of the bag. but don't get a husky based on what or how much they eat. do your research!!!! their gorgeous dogs but need ALOT of work! honestly if i wasn't a stay at home wife i don't think we could have managed her because she is a high maintnance breed and needs a lot more than your average dog.

i feed my dogs 2 to 3 meals a day and my husky is a big strong guy and at almost 10 yrs old he weighs 110 and and is in pretty good shape. i give him meat in the am and at noon a sandwhich with meat or peanut butter and at night they have what ever i cook for the family. they have 2 bowls up and down and the dry food and fresh water is always available.i also give them raw hides and dental bones for their teeth.walking daily or taking ur dogs for a good run is important to keep the weight down and it keeps the muscles and blood moving so be sure to have plenty of play and excersize every day.
siberian huskies are pretty big shedders so have good grooming brushes and get him used to clipping the nails and getting rid of the excess hair since it comes out in clumps and it seems like they shed non stop all yr at times lol.
my big guy likes the cool weather and snow and he is a house dog and he doesn't like the hot sun and only goes out to do his jobs then back in again on warm days so make sure he has plenty of shade in the summer.
they are a great family pet and a good guard dog so with the right training and lots of love and good food ur dog should be a great companion for many yrs. good luck
