Nowadays, one can come across many Huskies across the nation, which is why the grooming of a Siberian Husky is now a topic that needs to be discussed. Grooming is an extremely important aspect of your Husky’s well-being, as their physical state infl uences the way they feel. Siberian Huskies as a breed have double coats, and have 2 seasonal coats: a heavy winter coat, and a lighter summer coat.

IN SEASON Chickpeas (GARBANZO BEANS)

Chickpeas appear in early recordings in Turkey well over 5000 years ago. India produces the most chickpeas worldwide but they are grown in more than 50 countries. An excellent source of carbohydrates, protein, fiber, B vitamins, and some minerals, they are a nutritious staple of many diets.
