These new trendy crossbreeds only recently became popular in the early 2000s. One of the major dogs playing a part in this new genetic makeup is the golden retriever. In this post, I am to take you through a journey of learning about who golden retriever husky mix puppies are, who they’re for, characteristics and how you can potentially get your hands on one.
Let’s get into the meat of the topic. Goberian dogs are a mixed breed of a Siberian Husky and a Golden Retriever. Thi breed of dog usually has a very friendly temperament and makes a great addition to the family whether you have children other dogs and babies.
If you are looking to purchase one of these dogs, then you better be prepared to go out for regular walks multiple times a day.

A household favorite dog
The Goberian has become a household favorite by taking some of the best characteristics of each parent and both sides. By the way, I decided to change my style of writing in this post. Make sure to leave a comment below to let me know whether you prefer this style, or you prefer the old style which was broken down into one-liners…..
Just to give you an idea of what a goberian looks like then you can take a look at the images above. As you can see they tend to have very long thick fur that has a double coat. This is to help them resist water and take part in outdoor activities. You may find that some goberian to take the medium length hair from the Siberian Husky.
Whilst this is very true, there is absolutely no way of predicting exactly how they will come out.
As I previously mentioned, it is super important that if you are deciding on buying one of these dogs, you are prepared for high energy activities. To put things into perspective, you will be looking at around 12 miles per week as a minimum of exercise for this dog.
But don’t run off too fast, as that only amounts to roughly 60 minutes per day when you break it down like that. It’s not really too bad in the grand scheme of things, but you still need to be very active in order to keep a goberian dog.
You can expect a Golden Retriever Husky mix puppy to grow two sizes of around 20 to 24 inches tall. In regards to weight, you can expect them to weigh anywhere from 40 to 80lbs. It hasn’t been unheard of for a male Goberian to reach weights up to 90lbs, whilst this is not very common to find.
To maintain a dog like this you will need to bathe them at least once per week. It is highly recommended that in order to take care of their dental health, you should be then brushing their teeth at least three times per week.
From research, I would say you should brush them down at least two to three times per week. This will just help to stop any debris being held inside of their coat. And don’t forget nail clippers! as you will need to be clipping the nails from time to time when you see them starting to get long.
The overall picture
Overall, I wouldn’t really say that there is much higher maintenance for this dog than any other dog in general. At least when it comes to the topic of grooming and taking care of them.
If you’re talking about activity, however. Whilst they are not the most energetic dogs that you may come across, they are very used to being outdoors and love to take part in high energy activities.
So would make a perfect companion for someone or some people who like to go for a regular jog outside a few times per week. You may find that some temperaments would change or vary in a dog based on their gender.
It is commonly known that a male would like to be dominant or the alpha in the house was the female may be happy with being the underdog. You may face a few challenges of when training these puppies when it comes to the mill dogs.
A goberian dog is very intelligent and willing to learn. And whilst they love to learn and take part in your activities, you may find sometimes that day desire to do what they wish. This is not a problem but may require a little obedience training to remind them who is boss.
Brain training for dogs is a great way to start as it gives you all the training you need right at home and provides you full access to a trained professional. I’ve written a review of the program too, if you want to see how it went for me.
These are very intelligent dogs when it comes to what they are capable of. Well, their skill sets and capabilities can be quite impressive. If you take a look at their parents, it makes it very easy to determine that this dog is no doubt about it going to be very loving caring and small.
On one end you have the Golden Retriever which is been bread from the Tweed water spaniel and yellow retriever. Golden retrievers are very, very intelligent dogs and take pride in learning new complex tasks which is why they are used as Service dogs.
On the other hand, you have to say beer in husky which initially was used hundreds of years ago to help us through the Siberian winter’s. These dogs are commonly known as sled dogs, and they are used in some winter movies that you may be familiar with.
Loving in a confined space
These dogs are not really built for apartments. I currently live in an apartment myself with a golden retriever. And when I say it I mean it comet this is been very difficult to do. And when I say it I mean it, I would not recommend this for anyone else.
In the beginning, when Bella was just a part it was quite easy to maintain her in the flat. But with me going to work and my husband having to leave several times through the day it can be quite difficult for her during the day. Luckily we now pay a dog walker to come round and take her for a few walks whilst we’re out at work.
But again this can be quite pricey and itis highly recommended that you avoid doing this if possible. A great way to avoid all of these problems is to simply make sure you have adequate space for your dog before you go out and buy one. Now, this brings us to the all-important topic or health.
Having a healthy dog is very important and it is also just as important for you to know any health issues that are commonly found, prior to buying a dog. It can be horrific to find your pet friend experiencing bad circumstances unknowingly.
Because of the heartache, it can cause to both you and your dog it’s probably best, that you know a little about them before you decide to unlock.

In comparison to Golden Retrievers which are usually found to have quite a few health problems. You can expect to goberian to live anywhere between 12 to 15 years on average.
There are not many health problems that you will come up against as a Golden Retriever Husky mix parent. But there are definitely a few things that are highly recommended you are aware of.
A health concerns to consider
Below I have listed some of the common major problems found in this breed of dog. Under each topic heading, I will explain to you a little information on exactly what the health concern entails. A few of those health concerns are the following:
- OCD (Osteochondritis Dissecans) – This is a disease in the cartilage, that can affect your dog’s joints hindering their mobility. This process involves cartilage growing abnormally resulting in an ineffective joint in lots of pain and discomfort in their movement.
- Epilepsy – This is usually caused by a malfunction of the brain resulting in your dog experiences seizures and collapses. This disease is not specifically tailored to Goberians. As it is commonly found across the board with many different breeds of dogs.
- Bloat (gastric dilatation and volvulus) – The result of this problem will cause your dog to have a distended stomach which can then potentially cause breathing problems later on in time.
- Heart Problems – This is simply problems with the heart which can Intel many different problems within itself. Any problem with the heart comes under this category.
- Von Willebrand’s Disease – This is one of the most common found inherited blood clotting dog diseases. It is the result of the inability for a dog’s blood to clot which results in excessive bleeding from small where. This can be very dangerous if your dog experiences a large gash or cut.
Whilst these health problems are not out of the ordinary it is highly important for you as a parent to understand some of the potentials. While you may not be able to stop this. It will surely be no surprise to you and help you to take the right steps if you were to experience such circumstances.
If you are purchasing a dog it’s very important that you receive all certificates as well as clarification that they have had their first jabs before 8 weeks of age. Using private breeders may be the cheaper option, but could sting you in the long run.
I recommend you stay away from them unless you have certified information that they are genuine to deal with. Whilst it is totally down to you of where you buy your dog, I highly recommend you do your research before making a final decision.
If you’re looking to purchase a little bundle of fun. Then I think it’s definitely the right way to go. Just make sure that you do your research before purchasing. And make sure that these dogs are suitable for your lifestyle.
They need a good open space to play, as well as high activity fun-loving parents. For more information on the goberian dog.
