I knew someone who had an Akita that was a great escape artist. They went to talk to someone about obedience training (which they did anyway) and the person asked them if they had the proper collar for the invisible fence for an Akita. As their fur is so thick, they need a special collar that has longer "prongs" which will probably be the case with a Husky, too. These prongs must make contact with the skin in order to feel the shock that keeps them within the confines of the fence. You might want to look into this if you just used a standard collar.
Hope this helps!
