  1. Hi huskies and cats don't really tend to mix well to be honest. Especially a kitten! My 2 always try to chase cats. Huskies have a very high prey drive and can't be trusted around small furries. When they were used as sled dogs by the Chukchi people for thousands of years, in the summer they would be released into the wild and would hunt for themselves, hence the prey drive. They would only come back to villages in the winter when food was scarce Sorry to sound harsh but might not have been the best idea getting a kitten! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  2. Hi mine sleep in my room, but they are definitely more restless when it's warm. They like to move to different parts of the stone floor in the en suite to find the coolest bit, and they are up drinking water a lot. I'm not too sure what to suggest really for a crate Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  3. I've never used a cooling coat for mine, try do look good though! I have the same problem with Koda, because he's black he doesn't cope with heat at all. Dogs cool themselves through their paw pads, I've seen cooling boots for sale in the US but not over here! Maybe see if she will get in a paddling pool after walks as well to cool her down? There's cooling pads available too [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  7. Try taking him to the groomers, as long as they understand that huskies can't be clipped! When Astros mum went to the groomer she hardly shed at all for a few weeks afterwards Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  13. Firstly, this thread is 3 years old, so it's a bit late to be telling people to go easy on her! Secondly, no it's NEVER right to hit a dog. Fear turns into aggression, with EVERY dog Hitting a dog teaches them nothing other than to be scared of you. You will break the bond between you, and it will in fact be you trying to get their trust again not the other way round. Positive reinforcement is the correct way to train a dog. Show them what they should be doing and they will soon learn, they are an intelligent breed And 'dominant monsters'? Really? I have no words. And the whole 'we have to be dominant' thing is a load of jack, as most dog behaviourists will tell you I don't have dominant monsters thank you very much. I've never hit my dogs and I have 2 lovely dogs who love me very much, and I can say the same for goes for every husky and owner who I have met on this forum. No dominant monsters here sorry Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
