    Hi! Hope this helps.

    Siberian Husky:
    Siberian Huskies are pack dogs, and they need an owner who is the clear leader of the pack. This makes training easier because you will find that your dog respects you, but don't be surprised if he tests the limits of your position in the pack and tries to take control from time to time.

    The ideal Rottweiler is calm, confident, and courageous, never shy. He has a self-assured aloofness and doesn't make friends with people immediately or indiscriminately. Instead, he takes a wait-and-see attitude with new people or situations. With his family, he's affectionate, often following them around the house. This is not a highly excitable dog. He has an inherent desire to protect his family and property, but should never be aggressive toward people without cause. The Rottweiler is smart and adaptable with a strong work ethic.

    Some dogs are simply easier than others: they take to training better and are fairly easygoing. They're also resilient enough to bounce back from your mistakes or inconsistencies. Check out these breeds:

    its not just rott or husky,,,, but all large breeds need lot of time to spend with them as they tend to get spoilt n later it gets hard to handle them…if u r studin then try getting a smaller breed if u like them…though even they will need time from you… n training ..make sure u start home trining them from the very first day u get them……..

    but in case u r ready to do all the hard work .. n never get fed up.. them u can even handle rott n husky together

    all the best

    Both breeds should be trained so they don't exhibit unwanted behaviors, Rotties need to be socialized with everyone as they are a protective breed. Huskies are a bit headstrong and need to be trained and you will need to show the dog that you are the boss. I wouldn't recommend starting with both of them. For now, I'd suggest get one or the other. Being in college and taking care of 2 large breed dogs might be a bit overwhelming. Good luck.

    Start with an older dog. Since you're in college, you won't have time for a puppy. Huskies are not for first time dog owners.

    yes + if your going to college no way will you have time for 2 dogs when i went to college i didn't have time for the one dog i had so i ended up giving him to my dad.
    unless your going to live with 2 or 3 other people who can help out and have some type of experience with dogs then i dont suggest you get them right now.
    just wait it out.
