  1. Agree with previous post we use treats and reward her constantly when walks loose lead Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
  2. I was walking Harlow yesterday and found this on someone's verge unfortunately it looks too small [emoji25] Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
  3. Yours has the same mask as mine [emoji3] Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
  4. Thanks Jo it makes getting out for a walk that much longer currently. Something I'll have to persist with but I like the look of the head halter seems to be a winner for lead walking correction Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
  5. Sorry to hijack the thread but that's also what I've found the treats I've purchased that are more processed the worse it comes out! I only use natural treats now. Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
  6. From what I've read elsewhere dog food guidelines usually do suggest higher quantities because the more you feed the more you buy. Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
  7. Currently she still has her puppy coat so we just use a metal pronged brush with softer bristles on the other side, and we picked up a rubber mit for washing your dog but the hairs stick to it so we alternate between the two
  8. Welcome to the forum, she is very beautiful. I don't have any experience the issues you discussed but as others have suggested with time she will begin to trust you and with time spent training and bonding with her I know she will become a very good companion
  9. How did you go putting this on her? Ours has some kind of phobia of the harness so it's a real struggle to get that on her let alone a head halter. We have tried desensitization but she's still so coy about the harness
  10. I've never really been given a definitive answer from anyone on how much to feed - it seems that all dogs are different especially Huskies who don't like being over fed (problems with runny poo etc). Our 6 month old is currently on about 2 cups a day of TOTW puppy formula and looks lean (she's 15.5kg/34lbs). I've been slowly upping it but sometimes I've noticed slightly softer stool so I air on giving her less than more. We don't have blue buffalo here so I can't comment on the amount to feed that in comparison to TOTW I'm afraid
  11. Ours scratches all the time and I used to be paranoid now I just think she is itchy from dust or sand.
  12. Xrays came back really positive and her hip joints look really good but there is slight laxity and laxity with her knees. In saying that the vet we had was really helpful and said due to her age it's difficult to tell if it will be an ongoing problem or something that will self correct once her growth plates have fused and her ligaments and muscles have strengthened. So we are quite happy for now and have to take it easy with her for a week or 2 and see the vet again.

  14. Thanks robke we'll know more on Wednesday I'm secretly hoping it's something else. It's common they do cruciate ligaments and need similar knee surgery which isn't fun. Slightly different in humans but they normally will gribd a new groove for the knee cap so it sits more still and doesn't pop out constantly Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app The vet seemed to think her ability to run would be hindered and she wouldn't be able to do long runs or sprints maybe preparing us for the worst. I don't know of any specialists here unfortunately but we will see what the scans say thanks for your information Sent from my SM-G900I using Husky Owners mobile app
