  1. Ours doesn't howl but talks a lot and also barks. We've got papers showing her lineage to her great great great grandparents which are all purebred show dogs. I think some are more vocal than others and I believe they howl when they are not on their own but with other huskies Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  2. Like others have said we don't wash ours only when she goes to the groomer to get a brush and blow dry every 6months but otherwise we don't wash her Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  3. Yep our local dog park has open sections where they have run away a few times and only short 3-4 foot fences. It's owners risk but she loves running around with other dogs so I let her. The key is working on recall which she's been pretty good with Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

  5. Yep ours is the same except we are waiting for autumn weather/winter in Perth (has been 30 degrees recently) I'm curious to see how much her winter coat actually grows as it's her first winter with an adult coat Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  6. Harlow is 1.5 and off lead at the park every day. She has a tendancy to run up to new dogs sniff each other then if they don't want to play she paws at them or tries to push them over (I'd say it happens about 50% of the time). As you can imagine most other dogs don't like this so it's caused a few scuffles. Luckily we go early in the morning and mostly the same dogs are there. She plays rough with a few other dogs at the park that bite at each others necks. This is normal play for some dogs. So too the shoulder checking and bumping into each other. She also wrestles with a 45kg Ridgeback where they stand up on their back legs. Unfortunately not every dog owner understands that they are just playing and become overly concerned. I'd say yours is similar and is playing. I haven't tried to ever try and train this out of her because I believe it's normal behaviour for dogs but if you are concerned then definitely speak to a trainer/behaviourist Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  7. Hi and congratulations your life will never be the same [emoji23] since you won't be doing a lot of distance walking when they are little I'd start with a cheap harness they out grow them too quickly. We went through 3 when we started with ours. Praise and treats when you put the harness on as ours actually hates wearing one. Be patient and understanding that your puppy doesn't come with toilet training or behaviour training so you'll need to teach them the rules which will take months of errors before they get it. There's a million other things but ask any other questions as they arise. This forum has helped me immensely and you'll have plenty of others in the same situation as you Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  8. Amazing that poor husky. Living only 3 hours from Bali and south East Asia I've seen quite a bit and seen some shocking living conditions for both people and their animals it's quite heart breaking. It makes me appreciate my life that much more and give extra special care to my pets Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

  11. Cute they are adorable I'd have to keep them all Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  12. Harlow also fits this category she barks at what I assume is cats or rats running along our fence or when the neighbours are at the fence! Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  13. That's some amazing balance right there! Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  14. Luckily there are some big dogs at my park so she plays as rough with them as they give her but they really do go for it lucky the owners don't care Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  15. Mine ate a chicken well more specifically she ripped the insides out and ate some parts just the other week but I've caught her eating birds on a few occasions and no issues here. I certainly don't intentionally let her but I'd say yours will be ok Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
