  1. Have you seen a flying little boy named Peter with some fairy dust by any chance?

  3. You have far more chance of getting your family to listen than you do Titan. He is after all just following the natural instincts of the husky breed. I have a similar problem with my husband - he continues to put the wheelie bins next to the fence gates - despite my saying that I have caught Marley twice trying to use them as stepping stones to get over the gates - he is 15 months old and I am afraid the next time he tries he will succeed. If your family do not care enough to look after his welfare then you must seriously consider what to do next - what is best for Titan - living a life continually chained up - or you contacting your landlord and asking permission to put up secure fencing so you do not lose your dog. I see no reason for him to object, after all it would offer HIS property more protection and you are improving HIS property. If permanent fencing is not an option - there should be no reason why you cannot put up temporary fencing - like the aluminium builder's panels 11ft x 6ft high - they wont look as pretty but is a way round your problem. Because it is a temporary structure you should not have any planning issues, although I recognise all countries have their own regulations. Your only other option appears to move to a house where you can secure the garden. Have you thought of automatic door closers - we used to have them in the hotel ??

  5. Welcome beautiful little pup you have there
  6. Beautiful girl, welcome to the forum
  7. Welcome to the forum - looking forward to reading your posts
  8. She is beautiful - I truly believe huskies are the most adorable puppies on the planet - and they grow up to be the most amazing dogs. Your life will never be boring as long as your have your huskie.
  9. Hi!

    I am also in the non-pad camp. Hourly visits to the garden, not letting her back in the house until she wees/poos/both. The difficulty with pad training - especially if there are a few different ones dotted around the house is that she could well get used to using that spot, even when the pad is removed. Pad training,if used, IMHO should only be undertaken in one room - usually the kitchen by the back door, so that as the dog gets a little older the pad can be easily moved outside. We are all different though - some things work for one that do not work for another. Its just that your new puppy will have a tough time getting used to all the new surroundings, without the constant confusion of where she should relieve herself. She will have accidents - lots of them - just pick her up immediately you see her peeing and gently put her outside, stay with her, and don't let her back in until she does something, praise and give her a treat, - she will soon get the idea.
  10. There are far more experienced and qualified people on here - but for my own 2p worth: Chicken alone cannot possibly provide all the nutrients your puppy needs - plus feeding only organ meats - especially liver - can cause serious problems later on - putting a serious strain on your puppy's organs, its too rich. If you are feeding raw your puppy needs a variety of meats, lean meat, raw bones, and only about 10% organ meat. He will need fish as well as meat, as fish provides vitamins and minerals not available in chicken. If you are able to source organ meats - you should be able to source a carcass (chicken, duck, turkey) - turkey neck, duck necks and chicken necks provide roughly the correct ratio of meat to bone. He will also need some beef (mince), and lamb, rabbit etc. No cooked bones under any circumstances. He will also need vegetables (cooked and mashed for a puppy - you do not say his age) but when giving raw veg it must be chopped really small to enable his shortened digestive system chance to absorb the goodness. Raw egg is an excellent addition to the feed - two or three times a week only.

  12. Welcome to you both
  13. I disagree guys - if you look carefully you can see some remorse on his little face (just not much)
  14. GORGEOUS !
  15. Welcome. How about some pictures of your new fur-baby? There is a lot of very useful information on this site - go through the various forum headings until you come across something that interests you. There is a complete section on nutrition/diets - depending on whether you want to feed raw, tinned or kibble.
