    I live in North Wales with my other half and 2 crazy huskies Astro and Koda!
    I do a lot of charity events such as Tough Mudder and I have a degree in Sports Science.
    When I first left school I was an apprentice mechanic for Vauxhall! I do still have an interest in cars and I especially like old Fords such as Mustangs. I wanted to be a mechanic for the Vauxhall BTCC team!
    I am quite good at drawing and when I was 10 I came 3rd in a national competition to design a poster about caring for a dog for NCDL (now called Dogs Trust).
    I'm also a 1st Dan Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and I once trained with Olympic gold medalist Jade Jones before she stopped doing TAGB Tae Kwon Do
    I also enjoy DIY around the house, volunteering at my local animal rescue, watching rugby league and football (Liverpool supporter!), watching BTCC and the TT, and going on days out to interesting places such as National Trust buildings

  3. I don't agree with the term 'dangerous breed'. I've been campaigning for a long time for pit bulls not to be classed as a banned breed. It's not fair that a loving family pet is taken away and put in a secret police kennel where they are treated god knows how and put to sleep months later because their neck is too wide. If humans were treated the same because of the way they looked the human rights laws would be going crazy. Don't get me wrong there are some dangerous dogs out there, but most have been made to be dangerous by their idiot owners! There's been more dog bites and more dog attacks since the dangerous dog act came into play so it clearly isn't working But anyway I would take what the media says with a pinch of salt. Labradors are actually one of the worst breeds for biting in the uk, but the media makes them look like a lovely breed who wouldn't hurt a fly! You never see anything reported about anything other than staffy, husky, rottie and Doberman bites or attacks. I watched a program once and I think about 6 dogs of different breeds had been behaviour assessed and the public had to put them in order of how dangerous they were by looking at a picture. The staffy was chosen as most dangerous by most people, however the most dangerous dog was actually a spaniel! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  5. Aww glad things went well! Astro is the same he's a very nervous dog and most things stress him out - having his harness put on, being in the car etc so I think I need to get the behaviourist back in. Today a home boarding lady said she wouldn't be able to have him, he was so stressed from being in the car [emoji17] the behaviourist thinks its genetic with him too. The idea of scattering treats is good! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  15. If you can, take him to a home boarding place. Ideally someone who has had huskies before, and not sure where you are but if you're in the U.K. They should be registered with the council. Go and meet them with your dog first before you agree to anything, they will probably ask for vaccination certificate, and take a look around to make sure there are no hazards and it's secure. You're not silly at all for worrying, I've had a bad experience with a home boarding lady before who was inexperienced with huskies. I know I don't care about cost when it comes to my 2 as long as I know they are looked after properly! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
