  1. I blundered into to the World of Huskies with Logan. Found the forum and found the family. We would not have the crazy fur balls we have today without you all. Logan (RIP), Lucy, Ares and Khaos have loved every camp. As have we. Thank you for everything, decorating my caravan, , dressing me in nappies, baywatch suits & mankinis. Thank you all for being my friends, more like family.

  2. As regulars will already know by now, it has come to the point where husky camp is no longer something that we are going to be doing as an official forum thing. This is something we have thought about, and has honestly been coming for a while. The 2 missed camps through covid, and the removal of main camp by the site we were using, has simply emphasised that fact. This and the fact we are getting to the point numbers are dwindling year on year, we have people who struggle to get about more, dogs who are getting a lot older in some cases, so even the walks at times are becoming more and more an issue. People now have children. As a history, camp started officially back in 2009 as "Husky holiday". There were only 8 of us at the time, and all in tents in the middle of a field. I will never forget Sarah shouting that day "I am never staying in a f**** tent again" not realising, she was in a tent and everyone laughed as they could hear LOL. It was good fun and escalated from there. We couldn't take Kaiser on much of a walk as he was only little at the time. Now he is an old man LOL By 2012, we were fund raising and running a competition to bring someone over from overseas to camp. We have brought over someone from the Netherlands, and 2 people from the USA, all through fund raising. At the 2012 camp there were over 100 people. It's the largest we had, and it was great fun. For all who were there, its likely not something they will ever forget. (I certainly won't). Most people were staying in caravans. We had all our own kit on the go, a central location for husky camp, organised walks, competitions, fun awards for camp things, silly games and more. So, now we are in 2022. This weekend consisted of 17 people, 15 of which have been for many years. 4 of these are the people who organise camp. It was always going to end at some point, and we feel now is that time. To me and Sarah personally, this community has been a great part of our lives for a long time. We started this forum because Sarah wanted to meet a couple of people with Huskies. Needless to say, it escalated. Our puppies who we wanted to be able to go on holiday with, are now old. Our family is now bigger. Our own circumstances have changed. We will see people again, no doubt. There are certainly some of you who I know will likely be back up here camping, getting caravans etc, and we will certainly come see people who do. But for us, the time has come to end camp where it began. With a few great friends, who are now lifelong friends. Thank you to every person who has ever attended a camp.

  8. So I thought I would jump on here as it's been well over a year. So all this time later, and the sassy attitude carried on... you tell her no and she back chats every time LOL. I love her to bits. She has such an energetic personality, very loving. She has learnt lots of commands such as sit, down, stay, wait, play dead, speak and to not touch her food until the command word has been said. I also got a dog behaviourist to come out when she was roughly 6 months old to help with some of the training (walking, reactivity etc). My biggest struggle with her currently is still our daily walks. She is super friendly and inquisitive that whenever she sees another dog, or they start barking, she jumps around and screams and yaps at the top of her lungs at all hours of the morning... the training is forever with Huskies. She loooooooves her mate, GSD. They love being together, pretty inseparable. I usually get the dog wash people to come around monthly and the Husky is always done first and then the GSD but still will always fret whenever he's not around. At first I was worried from all the comments I used to read everywhere about how Huskies couldn't be left longer than 4 hours at a time, this used to make me think I wasn't doing good enough job until you realise you need to work to make a living and to even care for them. I definitely think having the second dog that was on his own first helped a lot. As long as you are walking before work, come home do some training and play with them until they go to sleep, they are living a good life. Weekend consist of going out on adventures also. I constantly check my cameras and she is either chilling out, eating her enrichment toy/treat or playing with her mate. No howling or trying to escape. All in all, we are all happy living our best lives! Here are some photos.
