do female siberian husky dogs get periods?

if so at what age..is a male dog better?or female dog?

It is not a period, per se, but they will bleed from that area if you do not get them fixed. This usually starts around 6-8 months, and lasts for 21 days every 6 months thereafter. Females can tend to be more aggressive during this time, and if your girl doesn't keep herself very clean by licking it off, then you will end up with blood everywhere. Also, you have to keep guard over them constantly to make sure that no male dogs get to her, otherwise you will have a bunch of innocent baby mutt puppies that you will be responsible for, and there are millions of dogs without homes already.

Males can be more aggressive, and can also spray the house if they are not fixed. As for which is better, these are some of the main problems but it will vary according to each animals individual personality. You could have a very laid back female that is no work, or a male that is a huge mess if not fixed, or vice-versa. There is really no way to tell. Even if they are not fixed their personalities vary so much from dog to dog it really doesn't matter what sex you get.

If you get your dog fixed before they reach adulthood, you will avoid most if not all of these problems. It will also decrease their chance of certain types of cancer and other medical problems. It will save you money in the long run, and you won't have to worry about your pet being injured in the reproductive process, or having to home a litter of puppies that shouldn't have been born. Your female will not have a period, your male shouldn't spray the house. They are usually calmer and happier, and healthier. You can usually get a spay or nueter for less than $100, and if you search there are usually low cost clinics available which are even cheaper. It is the responsible thing to do for your pet, just keep in mind the expense when you figure out how much money you have to pay for the dog, and remember you wil have to pay extra for the spay/nueter, and shots, and if the pup has any health problems.

Hope this helps!

    All dogs go into heat. At what age I'm not sure, I've always had mine spayed before their first cycle.

    No sex is better than the other. Sometimes males are cheaper to buy, but the sex of a dog has no affect on how great of a pet he or she will be.

    Yes they will have a "period"…it is called heat. And they will normally have their first heat between 8 months to a year old. A dogs heat lasts for 21 days and they normally have it 3 times a year i believe.

    All female dogs go through a heat cycle. Dogs become sexually mature around 6 months of age.

    I don't mean to be rude, but if you don't know this about dogs, then you are not a very experienced dog owner, and you should not own a Nordic breed (Husky, Malamute, Samoyed, etc) of any kind. These dogs require very experienced owners and a lot of discipline.

    There is a reason why they are breed with wolves to create hybrids, it's because they're as closely related to a wolf as a domestic dog can be.

    Please do a lot more research on this breed before you entertain buying one.

    All dogs go into heat and it can happen any time after 6 months.

    No dog menstruates so now female dogs don't get their period. The bleeding during the heat cycle is not the same as the bleeding in the human period. If you have your dog spayed you won't have to deal with her going into heat every 6 months or so.

    The earliest a female will go into heat is usually 6 months of age. As for which is better its a matter of opinion.

    all female dogs have heats unless they are spayed…they should start around 6-8 months and from then every 6-8 months…..get a female dog spay and often have minimual problems…male dogs need to be neutered or may start spraying the house if indoors..

    not a "Period", but dogs go into heat a few times a year.

    Do you WANT puppies? Yes? then get a female, and don't fix her.

    In either gender, you should have them fixed, unless you want puppies, or want the aggression of a male that hasn't been.

    Fixed pets make better pets, and keeps the population down.

    Lol they do if you don't get them spayed.

    I've owned both, Males are more dumb but better companions, females are smarter but some are not so affectionate.
