    Good luck sorting the motors @DanUK I see @robke has made it across the channel and is now driving on the correct side of the road. Dog food and Stella packed and caravan on charge with fridge on. Swearing involved as couldn’t find the power adapter last night so bought a new one. They only had EU ones so modified it last night. Went to plug it in just now, couldn’t find it anywhere. 20 mins later and I found the original one before the new one. Dumbass (Ares) and Lucy know we are packing and won’t leave my side, going to be very disappointed tonight as they are going to vets not camp. #badhuskydad Lucy is blowing, but it’s not coming out, can you all take turns brushing her? See you all Thursday or Friday

    Today is a massive landmark for Marley - he reached 200 days without a seizure. This despite the following: 100 Bleeding Ulcers Salmonella poisoning 9 different food allergies we did not know about Devastating loss of his big brother Strange workmen both outside and inside the house for weeks at a time From starting around every 27 days as a pup he had a cluster of five in 7 weeks at the begining of 2018 (from Jan 7th to Beginning March 2018). Since then he has had 3, at 106 days, 108 days and now his landmark 200 days seizure free. WELL DONE MARLEY !

    so you are new to huskys you will have a puppy that will sit roll over and do most things you train them to do UNTILL they hit 18 months of age then all training will go out the window The husky genes will kink in and you will have a stubborn back talking furry monster that makes your life a living hell , you want to go for a walk husky will shout yell grumble untill it gives in on the way home husky will shout yell howl and have every one looking at you thinbking your being mean becuase now husky wants to stay out. that exspenive toy you just brought home and gave gave to the husky, will be ripped to shreds and spread over the living room in the time it took you to make a coffee. Now you have a husky you will have fur in every thing you cook eat drink clothing will have to be purchased so fur does not show. guests will start learning to dress down when they visit twice a year your vacuum will choke on enough fur to make 2 more dogs when its snowing husky will refuse to come inside neighbours will report you for being cruel even though you stand at the door witha bag of tasty treats begging them to come in so people do not think your mean whilst the husky is in the cute cuddely fluff ball stage a 10 min walk will take an hour as every stops to make a fuss of them. Later you will here yikes its a wolf, no its noy a husky they have blue eyes, who is taking who for a walk, you need to get a sledge, Your neighbours will get used to the awooo's at all hours You will get used to having the biggest pain in the butt and most amusing ball of fluff in your life and you will at times wonder what you will do without them and five mins later wish you never got them a husky is not an easy dog you can not even really call them a dog as you got a HUSKY they are unlike any other breed. they will drive you insane one moment, make you laugh until you nearl wet yourself the next and be a part of your family

    Hi All, Haven't been active on the forum for a long time so thought I would through myself straight back in the thick of it and come and meet you all at Husky Camp. Huge thanks to Gary @Keeonah for letting me take his caravan at an amazing price. All I have to do is try and fix my one of my vehicles. I went to take the BMW off the drive this morning after not using it for a month and it will not start. (Just keeps cranking) My Jeep which is my daily has a knackered transfer box and only does 20mpg so what hoping not to risk driving this 450+ Miles. I HATE CARS. What ever I end up doing on the car front, Ill be there! Please add me and Mowgli to the list. See you all soon. Dan & Mowgli.

    It's now official. Lynne and I won't be coming to camp.😞 Can't tell you how gutted we are but I hope you'll all have a fantastic time as normal. Dan has taken the caravan and will be attending his first ever husky camp with his husky, Mowgli. I'm sure you'll all make him feel welcome. Keep the photos coming please, I'll be keeping a close eye on the forum 😂.

    Welcome to the forum. As people seem to have advised you. First rule of Husky ownership : NEVER let your Husky (cross or not) off lead in an unsecured area. Second rule of |Husky ownership : See rule No. 1 people who have had other breeds always remember that you can train a dog to respond and do what you want. Huskies can be trained in a closed safe environment to do all the same tricks, once outside in a wide open unsecured space all that training is completely ignored and you will be chasing your dog for hours, if your are even lucky enough to keep it in sight. This isn't just my opinion, this is what EVERY Husky owner discovers when they think they have the one Husky who will respond. On top of that they are escape artistes extraordinaire, if you have a half inch gap in your garden fence they will exploit it to get out. They will open doors and windows. You have to make your home into Fort Knox. You never open an exterior door without first checking that your husky is first locked away behind an interior door or baby gate. They will talk back to you, and ignore you, And they will shed constantly and blow their undercoat twice per year. Other than that they are a Joy to be owned by. Good luck

    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..

    Well done on rescuing Loca 😊 Of our 5, 4 are rescues, though nothing like as poor condition as Loca: Luka, far right, dumped on moors aged 5 after 3 owners, now 13 1/2 Skye, 2nd from left, came into SASD rescue aged 9 months, now 6. If you raised your voice at all, she'd roll onto her back and submissively pee (now you can shout at her - and she takes no notice! LOL!) Bolt, 3rd from left, came into SASD rescue aged 12 months, now 5. Had terrible food aggression and cowered from feet when he came in (is fine now) Granite, 2nd from right, came into SASD rescue aged 2 years, 24hours before being shot as he'd been feral on waste ground for 6 months and was considered unrehabitable. Barked at me non-stop the first 3 days when I entered the room (fine with women and kids). Is fine now (and greets me every morning, jumping up into my lap)

    Your beautiful Loca is very very lucky - and you and your husband have very very big hearts. The people you got her from are obviously just in it for the money without any care for the welfare of the dogs - if they were in the UK they would be prosecuted and the dogs removed. I am my husky's fourth owner, as detailed on his vaccination card - and he was only 12 weeks old when I got him. He had no issues with weight or disease when I got him, just the usual issues of being taken from his mum too early. Still has horrendous separation anxiety so he is never, ever, left alone, if we both have to go out for any reason, he comes with us. Bless you for taking pity on her and welcoming her into your home.

    My beautiful Lunar went over the bridge today - he wanted to go out for his morning walk - but only got as far as the gate and just stopped - his legs would not let him go any further. Marley will miss his friend awfully - they were inseparable. We are heartbroken. However we had 14 happy years - and he still recognised us despite the dementia taking most of his personality over the last 6 months. Run free my beatuful friend - you can run again now without pain. Patch, Benson, Kia, Louie and Bernie will be waiting for you on the other side and you can all run together.

    Hello! My name is Johna & my puppy's name is Draco! He is going to be 2 years old November 19th! My husky is very energetic, doesn't listen very well, jumps a lot, but is super cute! We got him as a rescue at 10 months old and he wasn't trained by his previous owners. He has come a long way in terms of training! I'm excited to peruse this website for tips and tricks on handling my husky!! If anyone has an instagram and wants to follow or see him, his instagram is @dracothehuskyy .

    Finally got round to phoning to book my pitch number. Was someone else on 107, but they chucked them off for me. Happy Days. Good job I phoned as I was booked Friday to Friday, would have been very disappointed on arrival. Chloe at Ty Mawr was very helpful and sorted everything, looking forward to seeing the dogs next week. her brother has two, so I told her he should pop down and see us.

    In my Sig below you can see we used to have a White GSD, GSD's do what you tell them to do, Huskies do what they want when they want and never what you want them to do. GSD's can be trained for perfect recall, Huskies can be trained for unreliable recall in a perfectly safe environment. The moment they are off lead outside they will sod off into the wild blue yonder and either play the chase me game staying just far enough ahead of you that you can't get hold of them or. . . . they will be off and you'll either never see them again or they'll be hit by a vehicle. Never trust your Husky off lead. GSD's will protect you until their last breath, Huskies will will watch you get beaten up by schoolgirls then happily go home with them Both breeds are affectionate and loving. Both breeds love long, long, long walks.

    What a nightmare, if you paid for her and you didn’t sign a contract stating he’d have a pup from her as part of a deal with you, then he has no right to demand anything. Block him and if he finds another way to contact you then get some advice about his harassing you. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    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

    I buy my mince from the butchers the cheaper 20% fat one, however he does not have this more than once a week so I don't worry about too much fat content. Human grade meat is obviously better if you can stretch to it - or know a friendly butcher. I buy lamb's ribs, marrow bones (for bone broth) etc for 60p a kilo from my butcher - the ribs are £3.50 a kilo from the raw pet food shop - and not as good quality. There is one extremely lucky dog here that gets his meat bought at Waitrose! (not mine) There is no reason your dog cannot have raw pork - pork containing worms is rare nowadays. Most people worm their dogs once a year anyway. I used to give my dogs raw chicken legs whole - never a problem, my old dog would occasionally just get half a chicken carcase (kept him happily occupied for half an hour or so) - but Marley is a very delicate eater and wont eat anything bigger than a half inch cube of meat. He will however tackle a very large meaty bone. Raw organs are the dog's vitamins! heart is classed as muscle meat, but pancreas, brain, lungs, kidney, liver (but not too much - and no more than twice a week for liver - its too rich) literally anything you can get hold of. The following may be of help - all the vitamins and minerals in the different foodstuffs: CHICKEN PORK BEEF LAMB EGG SARDINES HERRINGS SALMON A A A A A A B1 B1 B1 B1 B1 B1 B1 B1 B2 B2 B2 B2 B2 B2 B2 B2 B3 B3 B3 B3 B3 B3 B3 B3 B5 B5 B5 B5 B5 B5 B5 B5 B6 B6 B6 B6 B6 B6 B6 B6 B9 B9 B9 B9 B9 B9 B9 B12 B12 B12 B12 B12 B12 B12 B12 C C C LIVER KIDNEY D D D D E E E K K K CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM CALCIUM COPPER COPPER COPPER COPPER COPPER COPPER COPPER COPPER IODINE IODINE IODINE IODINE IRON IRON IRON IRON IRON IRON IRON IRON MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MAGNESIUM MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE MANGANESE PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS PHOSPHORUS POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM POTASSIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM SELENIUM ZINC ZINC ZINC ZINC ZINC ZINC ZINC ZINC The omega 6 to 3 ratio is extremely high in chicken/duck/turkey its 28:1 so it needs to be balanced out with either raw whole fish (sardines or herrings) which have a ratio of 1.4:1 or phytoplankton (spirulina or chorella) which is 2:1 either will help to balance out the fats. Poultry is also high in PUFA's (polyunsaturated fatty acids) and the fish and phytoplankton are only moderate so will also help with the PUFA's. If you give phytoplankton you only need around 1/8 to 1/16th of a teaspoon per meal. Coconut oil is counted as being one of the healthiest fats - just bear in mind that its Omega 6 to 3 ratio is 88:1 Raw meaty bones - including chicken necks, turkey necks, lambs necks are all very good for your dog - and she will thoroughly enjoy crunching her way through them - especially if you can get hold of an ox tail. Hope that helps
