Pitsky Activity Requirements

Pitsky is a cross between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian. They are a high-energy, playful, and friendly dog that makes a great companion. Because of their small size, Pitskies do very well in apartments, but they need at least one hour of daily exercise. This can be broken up into several short walks or runs or done all at once. While a fenced yard is ideal for this adventurous, outgoing breed, they are well suited to a busy life in the city as well. Their small size makes them portable and they don’t require much space to be happy.
