Below are some frequently asked
we are asked. If you have another question that is not on this-list then

makes Heaven Sent Huskies different from any other breeders
of Siberian Huskies?
We are as professional in
quality and in service as a large kennel or pet store yet we
are small enough to actually socialize every puppy. Since we
only have 2-3 litters per year, we have ample time
socializing each pup. Kennels and pet stores are not able to
place as must attention on each pup as we do. You may read
more about our distinctions on our
About Us page.
What does it
mean to "socialize" your puppy ?
Socializing involves several things. It involves
consistently handling the puppies every day they're with us. It
involves having several different people interacting with each
puppy. It even involves training your puppy to be crate-trained,
to be used to loud noises, and to be car and potty trained.
Huskies that leave Heaven Sent Huskies have had the healthiest
emotional state that can be achieved by a breeder.
Why is socializing a
If an Husky is not socialized two consistent problems occur.
1) The Husky may become excessively shy and consistently urinate
when scared or excited. When guest are over they may stay in the
corner and continually bark and never accept strangers. 2) The
most common and most dangerous problem of not socializing an
Husky is "fear biting." "Fear biting" is when the Husky will
bite out of fear especially when they walk away.

What does it
mean to "dew claw" a puppy?
Dew clawing is the process of removing the front outer claws
of a puppy typically at the age of 2 or 3 days old. It is a very
safe procedure much like cutting the umbilical cord. Many
Huskies when they get older will have their dew claws caught on
fabric and will have it injured. Having an adult Husky dew
clawed is a very painful and expensive procedure. Many problems
can be avoided if the breeder would spend the extra money and
dew claw the pups at a very early age.
How does the
puppy selection process work?
We do not require our buyers to
select their puppy until they are 4 weeks old. This gives the
puppies time to develop physically and emotionally. We observe
and note the personalities of each puppy as they are growing. By
4 weeks of age they have enough of a distinct personality to
share with the buyers. Though we have never had a "bad" puppy in
a litter there are still distinct personality traits that some
buyers desire. At 4 weeks of age we will give the personality
descriptions of all the females to the 1st female depositor and
the males to the 1st male depositor. Once they make their choice
we go down the line based on which buyer placed their deposit
first. We do not sale the 1st pick of the litter for any more
than the last. Pictures are posted of the litter at 1 day old, 2
weeks old & 4 weeks old on our
Available Pups page.
Is your dog
registered and if yes, to what registry?
Yes. Our dogs are registered
with the oldest and largest Husky registry in the world, United
Kennel Club. Information about this registry can be found on
website. UKC and AKC (American Kennel
Club) are the only registries that Heaven Sent Huskies would
recommend buying an Husky from. Many of the others do not have
the standards that UKC and AKC have. Buyers receive their UKC
paperwork when they pick up their puppy.
What kind of
puppy food to you feed your pups?
We feed our puppies Eukanuba Small Breed puppy food.
Eukanuba has no fillers in their food whatsoever and has chicken
as their #1 ingredient. Their food is rich in antioxidants and
contains fish oil for DHA, wholesome grains and pulp fiber to
help with their digestive tracts. We recommend that each puppy
continues to be fed this very common but very good puppy food.
Every buyer will receive an Eukanuba puppy training pack
including a small bag of puppy food and many more helpful
earliest we can pick up our puppy?
Every puppy is completely weaned and eating hard puppy food
by the time they are 5 weeks old. On the other hand, we require
our pups to be at least 6 weeks old to be picked up and 8 weeks
old to be shipped.
How much does
it cost to ship a puppy?
It typically cost around $300 to ship a puppy anywhere in
the country. That includes the plane ticket, the travel crate,
the Interstate Health Certificate and small traveling expenses.
What type of
shots and tests are given to each puppy?
Each puppy is examined by the vet just a few days after
birth. Each puppy is dewormed at 2 weeks, 4 weeks & 6 weeks old.
Right before pick-up each puppy is given their "puppy shot." The
puppy shot is Duramune Max 5 which is the vaccine for
coronavirus, parvovirus, distemper, parainfluenza, adenovirus
type 2 (and hepatitis) plus four leptos.
When should I
go to my veterinarian after picking up my puppy?
Each of our puppies come with a Warranty that requires you
to have your puppy checked by a vet within 72 hours after
picking up your puppy. Your vet will need to check for any
communicable diseases during that period. Your vet will also
recommend a time to get follow-up "puppy shots." Most vets
recommend puppies to be revaccinated every 2-4 weeks until 12
provide a warranty?
Yes, we provide a warranty.
Details about what is covered, what is not covered, and how it
is covered can be found on our
provide an extended warranty?
We highly recommend
NuVet vitamins and if you order online
by clicking on the NuVet Lab logo
or through our reference number (85927), so that we can track
your use for 2 years, we will extend our warranty an additional
year. Dysplasia and other
health defects is not only about genetics. It has as much to do
with diet and proper antioxidents as anything else. NuVet makes
it easy for the breeder to track those who continue to use their
product and thereby allowing us to reward them by
extending their warranty.
What is NuVet?
NuVet is an unique
multi-vitamin wafer that helps to prevent fast growth, less bone
problems, less vet bills, and a longer life. We strongly
recommended buyer to continue to give puppy 1 NuVet Plus wafer
each day which is a powerful antioxidant that gives a tremendous
boost to the immune system to prevent skin and coat problems,
and creates a defense against over fifty major diseases,
including hip and elbow dysplasia, and extending the life span
of your dog. Please take time and
