The main advice I can give you is to groom the pup every day when you get it!!!
A friend of mine bought a husky pup and they just didn't bother brushing until the dog started to mat and boy did they regret it. Every few weeks/months I have to go around and brush the dog for them because they can't get near it with a brush themselves.
Every time I got at least a garbage bag of hair out of the poor dog.
They can also be very pig-headed so training from an early age, especially in obedience is a must.
