  6. In Iwan’s bed...
  7. So our trusty Husky Van No 2 (Silver Dreamer) is no more. Decided to blow the Crankshaft and engine seized. Let us introduce you to Husky Van No 3 - White Wolf - will be collecting it next week.
  8. I just received this notice. It’s so shocking!
  9. As some of you guys know, my girl has been on restriction for the past three weeks from her last knucklehead move of breaking her tooth and needing a tooth extraction 😖. We have had almost 9 feet of snow up in the hills in the past 48 hours and more to come. Had about 4 inches here but has melted from all the rain. 🥺 I was so hoping to have the pups ready to go up and play by now. But since she had torn out her stitches only 4 days after surgery, it really slowed down the healing and we do not have the go ahead to go up to play. But we were oked to do short trainings outside. They love their new harnesses! Now if I can get them ok with being lined together. LOL
  10. Will I need shots for the teeth scratches he is making on my hands and feet? Is there a risk of infection? I have started showing him a treat when he grasps and make him sit and calm down before I give it to him. Worked alright today. Hope I am doing it right and not reinforcing bad behavior. Nonetheless today was a tough day. He just kept coming at my feet. Kind of drained emotionally [emoji20] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  11. Thanks so much I was just a concerned I wasn’t feeding him enough but you’ve put my mind at ease!
  12. Welcome! He is handsome! I think he looks good. My male was that weight and had the same shape at 8 months. Kinda staled out on gains for a few and now coming up on 11 months, going through a major growth spurt. Mine were also on Blue Buffalo but I found out they were allergic to chicken so I took them off of it. I feed 1 cup AM 1 cup PM and 1/2 cup midday during training. These guys don’t eat as much as regular dogs.
  13. Hello My name is Mark and my husky is named Ty and I’m new to this site. I was wondering if he was to skinny and if I was feeding him enough. He’s 8 months old and last I checked he was 40+ pounds. I feed him 1 1/2 cups of food and I feed him twice a day. So every day I’d feed him 3 cups of food. Also his food is the Blue Buffalo Wilderness Puppy w/ chicken in the blue bag
  14. I wouldn’t because it might cause possessive aggression. My husband and I still have scares on our hands from their teeth. I also went through some shredded cloths. LOL I truly believe the best thing to do is to ignore him when he does it. I know it is hard but it works. You don’t want to make a big deal out of what you don’t want him to have. He will start becoming possessive aggression, swallowing the item so he can keep it, and start food aggression. This is a very important time to teach manners and commands like leave it, drop it. Say drop it and then offer a high value treat. This way he learns to drop it and knows he gets something really awesome in return.
  15. thanks, interesting! Acana & Orijen are always ranked very high (and have the high price to go with that!)... so the allegation of "heavy metals and toxins" in their food is very surprising....
  16. That would be great [emoji5] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app Absolutely agree about how awesome the breed is. He is a smart boy. Already plays fetch with us. We will invest time and effort completely on his behavior [emoji2] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  17. I agree never tap on the nose - you can break his nose and crush the delicate bones - even with one finger - and give him breathing problems for the rest of his life. In my experience punishment of any kind is not the way to go - he is very maleable at the moment and can be taught with patience (a ton of it at least) - but you dont want him to challenge you when he is 25-30 kilos. Marley is 3 years old now and I've only heard him growl 4 times - each and every time he was asleep and dreaming. My vet says he needs disclipline - that he is spoilt (and he might be - just not more than a lot) - but I only have to look sharply at him and point my finger at him for him to stop whatever it is he is doing (like playing a little too roughly with the cat). Or if I am sitting down whilst he is misbehaving I only have to stand up and take one step towards him and he immediately stops and rolls on his back, with a big grin on his face and his tail wagging furiously - he knows he will only get a tummy rub - but he does not go back to what he was doing. There were times when I could have skinned him alive - thought I was completely out of my depth - thought I had gotten a monster - but did not let it show in my reactions - he knew I was very cross - but he was never physically punished - it does not stop him from hanging his head down to say sorry - I only ever just lay my hand on his head and say "NO". Since he has been ill, the vet immediately muzzles him before trying to take his temperature etc - last visit he had to have two injections and it took 3 of us to hold him - the vet still broke two needles - huskies are lightning-fast. The vet said "he was worse than most Sibes and Mals - they are all a nightmare when something has to be done" - I just said that he had never known pain of any kind since he was with me - not even "a tap on the nose" ..................... the vet said "It shows". He also went through the resource guarding 'thing' - and was pretty adamant that everything on the floor belonged to him, if he could steal it - it belonged to him, and no-one was going to get it off him - and dont come within 4 feet if he was feeding. I am now at the stage where I can take food away from him - even a bone - take away his food bowl halfway through a meal - I had to a couple of days ago because I had forgotten two of his medicines - I added them and added some high value food (in this case some grated cheese) to his bowl and gave it back to him. It took me 18 months to get to this stage. It was the very first time I had had to take his food bowl away halfway through his meal - I wont make a habit of it. Patience, love, understanding that he is 'just' a dog - and you are the 'evolved' one, you are the one with the higher brain function and can out-think and outsmart them (most of the time anyway), and remember that he is missing the all important life lessons his mum and siblings would have taught him - he only has you now to teach him to be the best dog he can be. I firmly believe the husky is the best breed on the planet - very challenging - but you get so much more back from them. Did I mention patience? Good luck - I know you will make a great mom.
  18. Welcome to the forum - he's a beauty.
  19. Hi, No, don’t tap him on the nose and don’t grab him by the scruff either. If you can’t get him off then maybe have some treats ready in your pockets and tell him to leave. When he leaves and goes for the treat that you’re giving him then give him loads of praise. I’m going to send you a direct message on a couple of hours as I got Luna when she was 6 1/2 weeks and I went through the same thing as you. Hes gorgeous 🐶😊

  21. His grip is getting stronger each day. He grips and thrashes around his head. It is getting super difficult to get him off clothes especially coz his teeth dig in. Is it alright to hold him by the scruff to loosen the grip? Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  22. Such a cutie [emoji173] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  23. Introduce them slowly and just keep an eye on them when they play as huskies can be rough. I have a chihuahua and my husky is fine with him. My chihuahua is the boss. To be honest if be more worried about the chihuahua as they are little lions.
  24. Last week
  25. She looks so proud of her tinkle. 😂 What a good girl.
