  1. Hello and welcome, and congratulations on your new pup! Wellness Core is a very good food, so unless its a cost issue, or if the pup isn't doing well on that food, I would keep him on it. Even if it were not the best, it would be wise to keep the pup on the food for the first few weeks, because the adjustment period will be stressful. If you do decide to switch, just make sure to do it gradually over a couple weeks or you will end up with a mess! Feel free to ask any questions, that is what we are all here for! I agree with what everyone else has added.

  5. Welcome to the forum! It's tough trying to get them to chew on things other than your hands! When he does that i would just say NO and replace with an acceptable chew toy. Feel free to ask away! You will need lots of patience and love [emoji173]️ Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  7. Like the others said, it is probably because he is so young. At a minimum they shouldn't be taken away from the mom until 8 weeks old, but some prefer even longer like 10 weeks.
  8. Glad you guys are ok! That can be very scary I live in city limits where there leash laws, but a few years ago I was walking my three, and my neighbor's pit bill ran out the door and came charging us. Kodiak stood up and protected us, and the owner came running. In the end, I had fell on the pavement and none of my dogs got bit...but Kodiak must have nipped the pit bull. My neighbor apologized profusely but still
  9. We are in day 3 and proud to report there have been no issues! I was afraid the little one would be distressed in the crate upstairs, but he's probably glad to be away from them for awhile!
  10. I tried the radio thing when mine were pups, and honestly I couldn't tell you if it made a difference.
  11. Hello and welcome! I was in your shoes several years ago, with my first puppy. Huskies can be difficult to train, so I would first suggest enrolling in some puppy classes. I found them very helpful not only for the pup, but it taught me how to train as well and it created a strong bond. Good luck!
  12. Yeah it's quite common. When Nikko was 9 months old I got Yukon who was 8 weeks old and they played like that. Yukon would let him know when he had enough though lol

  15. First off welcome and it's great to get as much info as possible before getting a husky. Not all huskies will howl like you see on some videos. Mine aren't very loud so I don't think it would be much different than any other dog. In fact when other dogs walk by they just silently watch, while I hear other dogs barking like crazy. A few things to keep in mind is that waking has to be at a minimum for the first several months, 5 minutes per month of age at a time. Also invest in training classes as huskies are very independent and can be difficult to train. And lots of patience!! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
