    So with the temperature dropping here in the north of Sweden, we have begun our training with the dogs again. We want them to be in shape before the snow even arrives. But how do we do that exactly? That's why I decided to make this video where I'll bring you along with our training 🙂 Thought it was quite fun to make and I might just do more of these types of videos in the future as I realise there is a lot of stuff going on in dog kennels that people have no idea about. The work that is required, but also things like misconceptions.

    Hi folks! I used to use this forum years and years ago when I had my sibe girl Kodi. She sadly passed away just a few months ago and left a huge void in my life. [emoji174] The void has recently been filled however by this lunatic, Odin! He's almost 11 weeks old and I can already tell he's going to be a handful! I forgot how tiring having a puppy is lol. But he's a beauty and I hope to have as many great years with him as I did with my Kodi. [emoji846] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    You don't realise how fast they grow until you look at old photos!

    Ah ha ha, sorry, I am a year late with photos! I did not check back on this thread, oops. Rumo ( that’s his name! ) is quite settled with us now. He is a quiet well-behaved furry guy and we love him. It is sad, but with just 1 year gone by, I can already see him slowing down a little...sleeping a bit more, trotting less. We don’t really know his age since he was a rescue. Maybe 6-7 yrs old now? for his Gotcha day, he got some grilled steak with his dinner, ice cream for dessert, and a hike 🙂 Will try to add some action photos this fall! ( We are actually active outdoorsy owners, walking/hiking/running about 4-5 miles a day with him, but I don’t usually carry anything but the car keys and a poopy bag! So all our outdoors adventures go undocumented...)

    I don't understand why people send their dogs away for training, that teaches you as an owner nothing on how to train your dog yourself , dogs don't just go and get fixed and then never need to be told again they need constant working , my 2 are nearly 9 and 10 and I still reinforce their training, did you have him from a puppy and what training did you put in with him? (obedience and toilet training etc) The problem you have now is that he's also hit his teenage stage so he's going to be even stronger willed then he was before he hit his teenage stage, people always say it's like reverting back to puppyhood but by then the dog usually has a least a bit of control over themselves to a point , is he neutered? Although you take him out all the time are you giving him mental exercise aswell as physical? Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    Hi we pick up our own 8wk old male on Saturday. Just wondering what is the best food to feed him and we have been told we can’t bath him for a few more weeks is this correct? Many thanks

    We're not from the same country so I don't know if we have the same brands. I have a double row undercoat rake and it works very well brushing out the thick coat. Mayo isn't a huge fan of being brushed but she'll just have to put up with it!

    Thank you. I’m going to try heel training. Tell me about it! It’s like having a toddler! 🙂 Thanks, I’m going to try and distract her with a toy- hopefully it works. I feed her Taste of the Wild puppy formula. Yeah, they aren’t fond of her as it is. They do keep their distance. It’s fine, though, I’m not fond of their angry-looking dogs lunging at us either. Sorry, I’m confused on what you mean (the bolded part). My girl is potty trained. She doesn’t eat her poop- she eats cat poop she finds outside. I don’t have cats. I would like to find her a companion, but we can’t afford that at this time.

    Thank you everyone Stellas slowly getting there 🤞. She's been really low energy with little bursts of husky puppy energy, and recently she became interested in her toys again! We took her back to get her wound swabbed and cultured - we don't want any risk of infection. I'll keep everyone posted! In the meantime, not even the cone can keep her from her favorite napping spot... 😂

    Thinking nowadays is pups learn their initial social skills from their mother in weeks 10-12, so even 8 weeks is really too early (though only the really dedicated breeders seem to ensure their pups gain those life lessons in weeks 10-12)

    Welcome to the pack seeing as you got him so young you will have a bit of a harder time teaching him as he's missed out on valuable lessons from his mother and siblings, bite inhibition is one of the main things he'll not have learnt yet He really should have stayed with his mum until at least 8 weeks old Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    Burt Reynolds, the wisecracking 1970s movie heartthrob and Oscar nominee, has died at the age of 82. According to Us Weekly, he passed away in a Florida hospital of a heart attack, attended by his family. The moustachioed actor had undergone heart bypass surgery in 2010. Reynolds is survived by his son, Quinton. He shot to fame in 1972's Deliverance, and also starred in Smokey and the Bandit, Boogie Nights and The Cannonball Run. The veteran actor's agent, Todd Eisner, told NBC News his passing was "heartbreaking". Reynolds died at the Jupiter Medical Center in Florida, according to the Hollywood Reporter. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-38589977 https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000608/?ref_=nv_sr_1

    Oh I remember those days well [emoji849] My 2 are well trained but as soon as they see a squirrel a cat a mouse, any prey that takes their fancy all training goes out of the window, typical for husky’s. All I do on a walk is hold them closer as I can judge by their body language when they’ve seen something they want to chase. As for the poop eating, mine used to eat fox poop but now I’m vigilant so as to avoid it. Mine used to try to eat anything they could find, paper, cushions, etc, they do grow out of this and it can be from boredom, when I caught them I’d say no and replace with a toy, I also used ‘what’s this’ which means treat time, so whatever they were doing they’d stop doing it and sit for a treat, still works now. It will get easier as she gets older, you have to have eyes in the back of your head with husky’s. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    With a pulling dog (from my own experience) there are a few things you can be doing: Before walking make sure to exercise your dog in the yard for 10 - 15 minutes to burn off some energy (fetch, tuggy etc.) Heel train Xilo: Simple 'Heel' Training Start indoors on the lead: Put a treat in your hand and put your hand by your side with the leash in the other. Walk around your house with Xilo trying to get the treat out of your hand. Repeat 'Xilo Heel', praise every 10 steps and release the treat from your hand. Keep spare treats in your leash hand so you can quickly continue the training. If Xilo gets distracted or moves too far ahead, stop, lure her back to your side with your treat hand. Start training outdoors in a secluded area with minimal distractions and continue the heel training walking back and forth in increasingly longer stints (5 meters & turn around, 10 meters & turn around, 15, 20 and so on). You could also purchase a Halti collar for more control on your walks, but some dogs don't like it and will need time to get used to one. With the eating poop, just keep a supply of treats on your walks and try to spot poop before she does and as with the heel training, let her smell the treat whilst you walk past it and release after. The paper thing is just puppy boredom, give her a better alternative and keep any paper out of reach. It's important to note that as with any training it is vital that your dog is sufficiently exercised beforehand for the best results.

    Is everyone in your family all using the same methods and commands also ? Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    maybe, and do not get me wrong, you should go to bootcamp with your dogs...it is imo great for training a dog but you both and or your partner also need to know what to do, you have a pup that is a husky and not a dog who will try everything out at least once and if it gets away with it more then once.... but ask questions...and in the mean time TO
