  4. Apologies as it shows raw then amount in grams so I assumed you meant feed her the mix raw. I will use the above mentioned recipe slightly cooked so you still see red (medium rare I guess) with an egg totally raw put on top or mixed in.
  5. I never said to do raw meat for this meal plan - I just asked you to cook it lightly in a previous post. The fish and vegetables should be raw however - to gain the maximum nutrition and to retain the EPA/DHA in the fish. My nutritional calculator is for dogs - hence it only works nutrition out on a raw basis - (dogs never learned to cook). At the end of the day its up to you - the above is a well calculated meal plan - you can do what you want with it - or work out your own from scratch as you will have to with any other meat you wish to use.
  6. Thanks but I’m not able to do raw meat. I thought you were sending a diet plan based on cooked meats
  7. Fish_mackerel_Atlantic_raw 50 Beef_ground_90%_lean_meat___10%_fat_raw 400 Egg_whole_raw_fresh Lamb_variety_meats_and_by-products_liver_raw 50 Lamb_variety_meats_and_by-products_kidneys_raw 30 Seeds_hemp_seed_hulled 10 Blueberries_raw 10 Broccoli_raw 40 Give an egg twice a week - either just the yolk (where 95% of the goodness is) or whisked up with the white (either is fine) MUST be raw not cooked. The fish must also be raw - I have used mackerel as it contains slightly more nutrients than either sardines or herrings. This also MUST be raw in order to keep the EPA and DHA intact. The figures are grams. This represents one whole day's food for your dog's current weight and will be enough until your pup reaches around 30lbs. The above menu is slightly low on Vitamin E and EPA/DHA - you can up the fish portion (up to 100g or even 130g - i.e. a whole fish) You can buy a concentrated vegan (algal oil) Omega-3 & astaxanthin capsule on Amazon - which contains 600mg of EPA and DHA - I use this for my dogs and myself - I give each dog half a capsule once a week (stick a pin in and drip the contents onto their food) The company is called Igennus. Foods highest in Vitamin E are:- Fish_salmon_Atlantic_farmed_raw Dandelion_greens_raw Fish_trout_rainbow_farmed_raw Spinach_raw However you can also buy organic vitamin E drops on Amazon - you only need one drop a d If you ever feed your dog poultry - ANY sort of poultry do NOT give him the hemp seeds. You can buy organic shelled hemp seeds on Amazon - you only need around 200g at a time as you only have to add 2 teaspoons a day. You would be amazed at just how much nutrition is in hemp seeds - including EPA and DHA Apart from Vit E, EPA & DHA the above menu covers ALL your dog's nutrient requirements - I know you said you would give broccolli as a veg which is why I used it in my calculations, however if you can get raw spinach - it has additional nutrients that broccolli does not - but broccolli is a superb veg to give. Please vary your dog's menu - say one food for a week and then change the protein to another meat. Dog's get bored with the same food day in day out - and the best way to ensure complete nutrition is to give a varied menu. There is one glaring 'error' in the above menu - there is no calcium in it and your pup needs calcium really badly whilst he is going through his massive growth spurt (and will still need it for the rest of his life). If he is not currently eating bones as part of his meals - he MUST have a calcium supplement. There is a company called Keizebrink that does a raw food supplement containing all 42 of the nutrients I have to check for when producing a menu for clients. https://www.kiezebrink.co.uk/category/205-raw-meat-supplements One pot is for dogs fed bones and one with added calcium for those not fed bones. It is a 'fail-safe' for when your dog is on a different menu - one pot should last a minimum of 12 months. One thing to note is that you could not order this online as their system cannot cope - it deals mainly with raw foods - so you may need to ring them.
  8. Hi guys. I have a 16 month old female Husky. She is the only dog in the house and when I walk her she goes crazy to meet other dogs. I can't let her off lead to play because we don't have recall. I don't mind her playing with other dogs but she has to be on lead so it can be a bit of a battle and I want to avoid lead pressure unless its necessary. I'm particularly concerned that she tries to pounce on smaller dogs and if we are passing a small dog in a narrow alleyway its always a struggle. I try to distract her attention but she's not food driven and is laser focused on any dog that comes close. I have been working with her a lot and trying to build our bond, but when she sees another dog its just a battle. Any suggestions?

  10. Last week
  11. As of yesterday she is 29.8 pounds and she turned 20 weeks yesterday as well.
  12. What is your dog's weight? I cannot do any food calculations without knowing the weight of the dog, in order to calculate the weight of the food to be eaten in a day. Most vets believe we do not have the intelligence to work out what our dogs should be eating. The secret is to give the dog variety. Beef, lamb, chicken etc as many different meats as you can plus fresh whole fish. By giving a herring, mackerel or sardine - you are giving your dog all the organs and therefore all the nutrients found in those organs - plus the most natural form of the essential oils. Out of the three fish mentioned above, mackerel gives the most nutrition - but the other two are no slouches either.

  15. My husky mix is a deaf alert guide dog! I just wanted to show off how she looks in her guide harness. We don't generally use the saddlebags and I've switched to a prong (the collar shown held a GPS tag that was abysmal at its job), but we love this lightweight guide harness and handle on Etsy. It fits her perfectly, allows a lot of free movement, can be seen easily at all hours, and it is literally lighter than a half-full can of soda. It's so amazing for us. I wanted something that was visible but not... outrageously expensive. I also was avoiding fleece (stinky and hot) and leather (not my thing). This works for us. (Not sponsored, nor do I care to be, but I really love the harness.) I also use a hands-free leash I got off Etsy, which means I can safely drop the lead at any time without fear of her taking off without me. People told me I was nuts when I adopted her ten months ago. She has come a ridiculously long way: she went from not being able to walk on a leash properly or ride in a car without fear to fully alerting for deafness and constantly travelling with no issues. She will literally slip past me to hop in the car now. She still has zero recall but as a deaf person, I'm... okay with my guide dog having no recall. I want her within arm's reach generally so she's always leashed beside me. Also shown is a grey tactical harness (we never use it. it just does not work for us) and some candid shots of her chilling in the house!
  16. I ran into this same issue, unfortunately, and I too was strongly against crating. But one day, I broke down after she got my wallet. I finally got a crate, and I tried it out, luring her in with cheese and just petting all over her until she would go in on her own. I put her thick, comfy bed in there (it fits perfectly) and by the end of the day, she was napping in there with a toy under her paws and seemed super happy. It turns out, she was destructive not just because she was lonely when I stepped outside (save for the cat), but also because she really needed her own space. She is rarely locked in there; I actually tie the door open if I'm home. She spends most of her time napping inside with the door wide open. She's in there right now, snoozing away, in fact. Having her own corner with her expensive dog bed has really helped her feel more secure and she has not destroyed anything in almost a month! (Knock on wood!) I know it seems really messed up sometimes, but think of a crate as a bedroom: a kid will voluntarily play in their bedroom, and a dog will voluntarily nap in their crate. A human adult will voluntarily game in a computer room. To a dog, they have a little bedroom, perfect for snoozes and chewing on a toy sometimes. I have an apartment and I know that crates, especially ones for a husky, can be massive and expensive. I found one that looks nice and I added a spot for my cat to the top, so now they actually nap together: one in the crate, one on top.
  17. Hey @wolfpup. Thanks for responding. I will immediately take out the peas and carrots. The peas were whole and the carrots diced very small but I will start using broccoli and cauliflower. my vet advised to feed her kibble but I think that’s because it’s the most common way to feed your dog but not the best. if I use ground beef and omit the rice and add the above mentioned veggies what vitamins and minerals am I deficient in? I was told I need omega oils and other vitamins.
  18. Hello! I am Tobias, and about a year ago I took in a seven month old pitbull-husky mix, Lilypad, from a fosterer who could no longer handle her. She is now a wonderful seventeen month old dog who has been excelling in service training as a deaf alert dog. Her recall is something to laugh at, but she does consistently do alerts for my disability and I've had SO much fun working with her because of her quirks. My future plans for Lilypad include Canicross and distance hiking (Appalachian Trail, most likely), but I need a bit more time for her to grow and then time to condition her. I lost my last canicross dog to old age just two weeks after adopting her, so she has helped heal a massive hole in my heart and aided me in my grief over my beloved chow chow. Lily is white with yellow ears and a back stripe, blue eyes, and a liver nose. According to EMBARK, she is a red (cream) with piebald in color, with a liver nose. She also contains traces of Chow Chow, German Shepherd, and American Bully. Her favorite things are pup cups, car rides, and running. She absolutely makes me stop by Starbucks just for her... Spoiled pup!
  19. Home cooked food is the second best way to feed - so you will get no argument from me. However there are a few problems with your prospective menu. Peas and carrots are both high starch vegetables - your dog would do far better if you gave the following:- Broccolli, spinach, kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage, even cauliflower. Please ensure that any veg you give your dog has been pureed or very finely minced - dogs do not chew their food - but the bits of vegetables need to be as small as you can get them in order for your dog to get the goodness out of the vegetable. If you feed either peas (whole) or carrots (chunks) you will see them deposited on the ground the next day almost the same as they went in. Rice is pure starch - nothing else. Dogs have evolved to eat around 4% starch in its diet naturally - any more than that amount of starch in its diet will cause its pancreas to work overtime (much harder than it should). The following will be of help to you. https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/can-dogs-eat-rice/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/video/why-rice-is-a-dangerous-dog-food-ingredient/ Fish oil is unsustainable - staple fish like mendhaven (the main fish other fish eat) is now getting very scarce because they are used in making of fish oil. In addition fish oil goes rancid very easily and quickly (it is one of my main arguments against kibble). I would cook any meat minimally. In addition add fresh fish that still contains its organs (i.e. not filleted) twice a week, dark leafy green vegetables - around 5% of the diet, offal (liver a maximum of 10% of the diet) if you can get them:- kidneys, ovaries, testes, spleen, pancreas, brain and eyes etc.
  20. Hello ive asked this previously and was advise raw food but I’m not going to do that. What I would like to ask is if I make fresh food is the below ok? 1 cup cooked white rice 2 pounds cooked lean ground beef 1 cup cooked peas and carrots additives - fish oil

  26. Hi Katelyn, our husky-malamute mix does the exact same thing! What did you do to resolve this issue? I really hope you found a solution! It's so frustrating and upsetting and really very discouraging. Would love to hear what you tried. Thank you so much for sharing your story. It's also really humiliating and embarrassing when it happens out in public, so thank you for sharing it!
