The Mini Huskies and Pomskies are a comparatively easy dog to care for. They would generally need grooming at least twice a week to remove dead hair. Bathing requirements are minimal. These breeds usually have a double coat of hair. The underneath is a soft downy undercoat, protected by a harsh outercoat – which actually grows through the undercoat. The outercoat is water-proof and protects them from rain, snow, and dirt. The undercoat serves to provide insulation from heat and cold. Once or twice a year they will shed the undercoat and require more brushing.
