    Kira used to eat harnesses. Niko once at a box of cereal, box was in 800 pieces. Lately, the worst we see from them is shredded napkins. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk

    Happy new year all. We have finally hit summer and had a few high 30 degree Celsius days. We let Harlow have a midday nap in our air-conditioned living room on this particular day which reached 41.2 degrees. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    I agree with chelseafan don't choose your pup based on colour alone, the black pup might end up loosing that mask also and end up with a pure white face , they change ALOT as they grow , my boy had grey rings under his eyes and the stripe down his nose forked into two points as a puppy and now he has lost the rings and the two points down his nose is just one stripe He also currently has a snow nose as u can see in the second pic Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    The pigmentation is nothing to worry about, just gives them character it might stay it might not, my girl actually had a black nose as a puppy and now it's pink 7 months old 10 months old And now Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app Oh and snow nose doesn't matter about how warm or cold it is it's just to do with light exposure , that can also come and go or stay permanent , my boy gets it sometimes then his nose goes black again Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    Well, a popular training method that I use is Positive Training. The basic theory of it is that you "lure" the dog into the behavior you want (i.e. want him to go into a down? hold treat between his paws - most dogs will lay down to get it) Then, once he has performed the behavior, you "mark" (with a clicker and a treat, or a happy "Yes!" and a treat). After enough repetitions, the behavior becomes a habit...(you cue "down" . dog lays down. )...then you can start "fading out" the treat, which is, reinforcing the behavior randomly instead of every time. This method covered about 90% of what I wanted to train my dog to do, but it didn't work well for pulling. A good book to learn about positive training is "Purely Positive" by Sheila Booth. And I also enjoyed "The Other End of the Leash" by Patricia McConnell. But the best way of all to learn, was going to group obedience class! For example, applying to Jumping...you want NOT jumping to be rewarding. So, when dog jumps = no reward (you ignore, turn away, or even leave again). When dog is calm with all four paws on the floor, you mark "Good girl!!!" and give a treat. Pretty soon your dog will skip the Jump to move straight to "Good Girl" + Treat...& gradually (hopefully) your dog will unlearn the habit of jumping. You can see how this works with dog psychology in a different way than pushing them away with your knee - it's kind of like they are teaching themselves how to earn rewards, and it seems to be an effective way for dogs to learn. Anyway the basic idea of "marking" the behavior you want, with some kind of reward - I have seen it REALLY work with my dog. ( He even learned some bad habits - I accidentally "marked" his behavior of getting up and coming over when I'm eating a snack, by giving him a piece just once in a while. Now he will come over and lurk next to me almost all the time, in hope of getting a piece of my snack. ) Then once dog is trained around house/yard, it's time to practice out in the real world. Gradually making it more difficult - i.e. Sit in a quiet empty street? if that is OK, then Sit in a street with people walking by at a distance? If that was good, then Sit in the pet store checkout line? Dog trainers call it "working below threshold". Anyway there is so much on the internet about positive training...so I will shut up now 😄

    Nice post Marc but not sure as I'll be able to come now. Fancy making us responsible for those we bring. To be fair, I think you may have just ruled yourself out as well. 🤣🤣

    I've actually started doing this as it gets Harlow very excited for dinner. Pour sardine juice and a few sardines onto her kibble (taste of the wild high prairie mixed with Ziwipeak mackerel and lamb). It's cheaper than any dog specific wet food. I am planning on slowly transitioning eventually to raw Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    I have never had good luck with same sex. In any breed. Came home to too many blood baths. I even got them as pups. But I would make sure you do a meet and greet at your home. Let them pick the pup.

    They are a picture of innocence when they’re that young! I will advise lots of research, in a few months when the prey drive kicks in, the fun begins! Enjoy your pup [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    Yeah I was the other way around. When Brooke passed away I swore blind we would stay as a two dog household but then hubby knew someone who was thinking of rehoming their 4 month old Frenchie and he got the boys on board to outvote me so we went back up to a three dog household, lol. I like to remind him of this when she’s wiping her butt across the carpet 🤣 Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    Good evening all! Simka here hoping everyone is ready for the Holidays!!!! Well, mommy has been baking yummy stuff and she even hauled this big tree in the house and put all kinds of lights and stuff on it. I think the idea is that I’m supposed to try to pull all the stuff off it, but for some reason mommy is not amused???? Well, Carol had her holiday party this afternoon and invited a bunch of humans including Aunty Rachel and Kristen. The girls just got some yummy new sneakers last week and they said if Grizz and crew were good, they might wear them over to the party! However, Kristen wore hers over the other day and the boys got to have a taste. From what I have heard they have all been going nutso for those nikes ever since! Well, as super awesome humans, Aunty Rachel and Kristen kept their word this afternoon: After some major sniffing and licking and growling, Grizz and crew each finally picked out which yummy new nike they wanted to eat up for dessert! A totally awesome holiday treat!!!!!! From what I heard, Grizz, Rusty and Snickers wrestled them off quickly and each took a sneaker down to the guest room to enjoy. Rosco however took his time savoring all the soft chewy white leather and his sneaker was the last to be chewed off. They are really hoping the girls will stay over, since the roads are icy and then they can enjoy those delicious new seakers all night! Im so thankful that my buddies have such amazing humans to spoil them! Happy holidays all!!!! Simka
