Your husky shouldn’t eat mustard. Mustard has mustard seeds and mustard seeds are toxic for dogs. The components called glucosinolates found in mustard seeds can harm your dog. Other plants that contain glucosinolates are horseradish, rapeseed, and cabbage. Your husky, and any dog in this world, will most likely not enjoy the taste of the mustard. A dog can be curious about the mustard’s taste because he sees you eating it, but he most likely does not enjoy it.

Your dog will definitely eat mustard if it comes in a burger or a hot dog. He will chew on that meat, and he will ignore the spicy and stingy mustard.
