  1. Past hour
  2. Just stopped in to look around. It's been a good long time since I was last seen in these parts. Zoya is now ten. She tore her second cruciate ligament last fall. Surgery was seccessful, but she re-injured her right rear leg about a month ago. She is still on the mend. Rohn remains his goofy self. Full of vim and vigor. Always wooing at me. The little bugger. Luke, our rescue is always looking for something to catch. Yesterday he treed a neighbor's cat. A few week's back he caught a possum. Two days ago, he took out after a fox. As I get older, I've come to realize that working for a living is not all it's cracked up to be. But having a few dogs in the family makes it all worthwhile. Well, guess who's wooing at me. Time to go out. These dogs are like having three clocks, all in the same room.
  3. Yesterday
  4. I also got the one from Indi dog as I felt my dogs head was pulled around too much with the ones going from under the chin! He didn’t like it at first either, I had a lead attached to his harness as a back up in case he escaped. Lots of positive reinforcement works well, maybe try clicker training Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  5. Ain't she? Fell in love with her the moment I saw her So the black spot near her tail doesn't make her a piebald Are u sure? Couldn't the black spot make her a piebald or not?

  7. Smells drive them nuts on walks, cats, squirrels etc and they pull more when they’re going on the same walk that they’ve seen a cat etc, mine do anyway. I bought head collars for my 2 from indi dog as they clip at the back of the neck and they’re much softer on the snout, they are a tool but sometimes you have to use them for your safety and theirs.

  8. I have no idea, but she sure is a beauty!
  9. So, I've had my husky for about 9 years now and only now I've been curious of what type of husky she is. I havnet really done any research but I think that she may be a piebald or just white. I'm mainly asking considering that I'm not quite sure how much black her coat has to be to be considered a piebald or any other coat. She has one small spot near her tail and no where else.
  10. So, I've got a smaller size husky by the name of Seren (Welsh for star) and I've been trying to figure out for quite a while what type of husky she is. I've narrowed it down to either a piebald or just a white coat. The only reason I think she could be a pie bald is because she has a single spot on her back but I don't know if there has to be a surtain percentage of black to be considered a piebald. If anyone could help me, it would be very much appreciated.

      I thought this was the general husky tab, I'm sorry 😂

  11. I've edited the title for you I found the walkyourdogwithlove non pull harness the only thing that worked on my boy , used to hate walking him as I ended up in pain the whole time and a canny collar (head collar ) didn't work and he hated it so we tried this and with time and training he walked lovely, we now use normal harnesses and I can walk him for much longer than I normally would have been able to

  13. Last week
  14. Trust me, I’ve tried everything & the halti is the only thing that works.. Don’t know why the title says Hakuto 😂 Autocorrect at work. Ive tried the “go the other direction” technique, tried the “heel” command technique, tried food, tried anti-pull harnesses, tried nightingale collars, tried the “focus on me” thing, tried counter conditioning - literally any and all techniques to try and get her to walk nicely - like I trained my other dogs - this girl does not wanna calm down and listen to me when it comes to a walk. The halti is the only thing that works for her.
  15. Ahh a hot spot, Huskies can be quite prone to them
  16. Not a fan of head collars but dogs can be taught when to walk nicely and when to pull even on harnesses and given the correct commands know what you expect of them (both mine walk lovely in a harness but know what hike on means ) however you need to slowly condition your dog to like any tool especially something adversive that goes around their face as its not natural for them Here's a link I found which will hopefully help you condition you dog , just remember that it is a training tool and shouldn't be used long term you should eventually be able to phase it out and no longer need it https://www.taurusacademy.com/blog/training-tips/how-to-condition-your-dog-to-a-gentle-leader
  17. My 5 year old sibe is still a puller - which comes in handy when we’re boarding but when I wanna go on a calm walk she’s a nightmare. Anti-pull harnesses don’t work, and I don’t really want her to be taught not to pull in a harness because I want her to pull when she’s got her x back one on and the skateboards out. So I got her a head halti, and it works wonders - only problem is she fights to get it off - she paws at her muzzle to get it off - sometimes succeeds - but I put it right back on, but she paws so much that she cuts her mouth. It doesn’t seem to hurt her, but I don’t want her injuring herself. Any ideas on on how to get her to accept it??
  18. Been to the vets - it’s apparently eczema that has become infected and spread outward into a circle - he called it “wet eczema”. She’s got some cream for it, panic over 😂 hoping her fur grows back, but you can’t see it anyway I wouldn’t have noticed if I wasn’t scrubbing her belly & chest in her bath. No she never does, and if she tries the other one is an oldie so she just sits there & ignores her 😂 xx
  19. HaHa! More like a sucker for a sad story - but we have learned to foster successfully without always adopting! 😊

  21. its hard to imagine a dog will be shot and dumped .. i always say that dogs acts the way their owner teach them..for example pitbulls..people say they are angry unpredictable dogs that will attack people when they get the chance..i was scared of hearing that until my husband bought a pitbull puppy and god she was so kind and loving, we even let kids play with her, my husband explained to me that dogs that attacks (doesnt need to be a pitbull, it can be any breed) is trained that way by their owner..if hitting a dog of course it will snap one day.. but abandon them when they are no longer puppies? why not put them up for adoption , but at least most of the dogs gets lovely homes again just wish they all could..
  22. Does she play fight with your other dogs ? Maybe they could have bit her by accident
  23. A while back now Ice got into a fight with a fox one night and had a few small scratches on his muzzle. Over the next few days the fur began to fall out and he had angry red skin there, so we took him to the vets. Our other two dogs were unaffected. She admitted that if we hadn’t mentioned the fox altercation, she wouldn’t even have considered the possibility of mange but focussed more on something like ZRD. She said that the scraping samples needed to test for mange were quite deep so it would be easier just to treat it given the information we already had. We were prescribed one meat flavoured tablet that he took quite enthusiastically and that was pretty much it treatment wise. May have been a follow up tablet at some point but I honestly can’t remember. His skin started recovering pretty fast after that.
  24. Welcome to the forum I've had terriers, borzois, labs, collieX, Utonagans (Husky/Malamute/GSD) etc ......... NOTHING prepared me for a husky - the most challenging breed on the planet - and the most rewarding. So much personality, a mind of their own (and they use it), a definite "what's in it for me" attitude when you want them to do something - if they feel like doing it they will, if they dont feel like it ..... there's NOWT you can do about it. I dont think you will find anyone on the forum who would want any other breed. Oh, and they are master escape artists - par excellance. I LOVE them
