    (not entirely new to the site but I've been gone for about a year and a half after losing Dexter at 11 months due to a congenital liver shunt that couldn't be repaired) After Dexter having to be put down from his liver shunt a year and half ago now I decided to try again. Almost two months ago now I drove 560 miles total, down to MD, to pick up my little Jed. So far he's a healthy, energetic little Husky pup who loves to play and likes to eat everything (we have had one trip to the Vet for this already). He has a very sensitive stomach though which has lead him to a bland diet for the time being and some medicine to help harden up his loose stools. Other than that... he's presenting nice and healthy! I'm absolutely terrified of anything happening to him because of Dexter. He's a huge mama's boy and I'm so happy I finally went and got another Husky pup!

    Hi and welcome! First of all, a lot of problems will stem from having a puppy too early, I.e difficult to train and separation anxiety Second of all, you have a breed that is difficult to train anyway, mix the 2 situations together and you get a very disobedient and unsettled pup Do not ever use physical punishment. This is only going to make matters worse, you will have a nervous and aggressive dog. I too have tried the 'alpha' theory before and I've had a dog trainer round who teaches the same thing, but I don't believe in it anymore to be honest. I've been speaking to a trainer online and I've got another one coming to my house who believe in positive reinforcement, and that works so much better. When he does something good, go over the top to praise him! When he's being bad tell him no and ignore him. It's going to take months, Astro didn't start behaving better until he was nearly 2 Huskies are very independent dogs, they have a whats in it for me attitude and they will pick and choose when they listen to you, hence why they should not be let off lead. The reason for this goes back tens of thousands of years, when Chukchi people used them as sled dogs. In the winter they would be working dogs, but in the summer they were set free and had to survive on their own. They came back in the winter as the Chukchi people would feed them in winter, so it was a you scratch my back I'll scratch yours situation. Also when working they wouldn't always listen to commands, if they were being told to turn right but they could sense danger they would ignore the command. Because this happened for thousands of years, it's deeply ingrained in the breed. And it's very difficult to tire a husky out, this is a breed that would travel hundreds of miles a day. The only thing that tired Astro out is playing with other dogs at doggy day care or at husky camp, he sleeps like a baby after that! Mental games are good, hide toys and treats around the house and ask him to find them. Huskies love a task, as they are working dogs. So what you need to do is use a lot of positive reinforcement. Give the no command then immediately show him what he can do. And most importantly, have a lot of patience! I would also be careful with the amount of time you are spending with him, he might become too reliant on you for attention and entertainment Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app

    There was a big horse orienteering thing on in MK yesterday, so we saw plenty whilst we are out. Logan and Lucy will either stand quietly whilst they walk past or just walk to the side to make room. However I guess this event was timed as a few times after we were passed, they would up the pace to at least a Trot. My two just looked at each other as if to say....................... RACE! Then we were off, thank goodness for the walking belt.

    Had no idea such an app existed & it's now my favourite one to browse and learn something new about huskies every day... [emoji846] Just wanted to introduce myself - I'm Kirsty & this is my beautiful 4 year old husky Barnaby. We live in Ayrshire in Scotland! I like to refer to him as my wolf dog as I've been asked many times if he is infact a wolf lol... [emoji170] Proud owner of Barnaby, aged 4. My beautiful black wolf dog [emoji170]

    Thanks Emma. Some of the pack can't be raced, i.e. Nina, Eclipse. Keiko, Sasha and Sapphire run. Sapphire is the fastest but I can't get her to run on her own at the moment. i didn't have a dog that could keep up with her in a 2 dog team either but I have now borrowed my granddaughters dog Misty so am back to a 2 dog team and 3 dogs that can run on their own. Just thought some of you might like to see some of our training runs. They are all from today 16/04.17 This first one is Sapphires reluctance to run on her own.

    Just had my 1st walk with indi dog head collar. Sid you are a life ( arm) saver!!!! Amy trotted along beside me very nicely, no pulling, she did manage to slip it once but she was on hind legs scratching at it with front paws coz we were passing another husky who was equally excited! I did half the walk with it attached and half without but left it on so she can get used it it around her nose! LOVE it thank you Sid [emoji3][emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app And now she pooped!!! [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app

    Dogs are pregnant between 58-68 days, so by now she'd be nearly due if she was pregnant. You would have noticed nipples swelling, maybe she'd have gone off her food, not wanting to walk as much etc. If you're thinking of breeding professional vet advice is a necessity for the welfare of your dog and any future pups.

    Well we went and he was having non of it, he was very anxious and unsettled with very high heart rate. The ladies were fantastic fussed and praised him all the way and he still got all the treats and new toy as if he had given blood. At the end of the day he comes first we will try again and if he is as upset then that's fine. Pets blood bank do a fantastic job and we will continue to support them.

    Well I got a CARpet rubber brush / Block to give it a go. Really good especially on the stair carpet, even when you think it's all hoovered up give it a once over and it pulls up more. Great piece of kit, highly recommended.
