  1. Harlow (our 6 month old) started to limp a few weeks ago and wasn't happy moving so we gave her a week off from the park and she seemed fine but hopped on her back end when she was in a slow run. We then noticed she walked with a swinging motion in her back legs. I thought it was a problem with her hips but after having her checked by a vet yesterday they are 60-70% sure it's luxating patella in both rear knees. We are having scans done this Wednesday to confirm this. Has anyone had any experience with this? Any advice or input regarding surgery etc would be welcome as I've been reading a lot into the condition and alternatives to surgery.

  5. Same here, we thought she had fleas haha but she just itches sometimes even on the lead she'll drop to the ground to sort an itch out.
  6. haha I've bought Harlow a bed, used outdoor seat cushion that's weather proof and even bought cooling mats for her....she prefers to just sleep on out hardwood floors or stealthily break into the puppy fence we have up to stop her from getting on the couch. I found her sleeping in the dirt on the weekend when it was only 27 degrees Celsius so wasn't even too hot.
  7. chew rope toys I play with ours and also she absolutely loves the Chuckit brand of balls to chew on she will carry it around the house and chew it for hours. They are a good strong rubber soft enough for them to chew but firm enough not to break. As others have said frozen towels and carrots are also great
  8. Such a good feeling the small wins keep it up! I bake the hearts and liver for 40-60minutes it stinks though Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
  9. This is the stuff we used, not sure if it's available to you or not but it has bad reviews online and we found it worked fine for us so not sure lol
  10. Well done you may need to change it up sometimes too because they can get bored of the same treat constantly. I mix sausages chicken liver and hearts all chopped up into treat bags and freeze them. That way the smells of everything are mixed together. But it's a great start glad she likes them Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
  11. Harlow is 6 months old too and hasn't grown significantly in 2 weeks. I think they start growing again soon. We walk her twice a day so when we are at work she's too tired to really chew or destroy anything and she's locked in our living room with doggy door access to the yard and leave toys out for her she did start chewing the edge of one of our sofas but used the spray and that stopped her and intercepting the behaviour with a chew toy helped Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
  12. We keep ours at a semi fenced in dog park (80% of the boundary is fenced) by food and constantly calling her when she wanders off. It's working so far worried though once she turns 1+ when her prey drive kicks in Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
  13. What a mess haha but what fun to play in Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
  14. This is my favourite thing about owning a Husky, the back talking I get every morning demanding breakfast and the constant chat when I get home every day as if to say "why did you leave me I was bored" lol
  15. I'm no expert but I'd say that sounds about right. She shot up from 11weeks to 4 months old. She's now 5 and a half months old and stopped growing but I've been told she will grow again into full adulthood from 6months to 1 year. This doesn't seem right at all, it does work on averages but she's currently around 14kg so I'd say it's pretty far off. I'd just monitor yours week by week, if they're eating with no problem and their poo is solid you should be fine. I'm assuming he's had his first round of immunizations already?
