    Nice one there 2Huskyfun. The harnesses look so comfy. I’ve managed to source a local company that does bungee leashes and they are customizing some duel joring leashes for me. Will only receive them after the lockdown has been lifted / suspended. I’m so looking forward to trying them out and I’m sure that my huskies will have so much more fun when we get to use them. Here’s a pic of the duel leashes I’ve ordered:

    Hi, Indi-dog are one of the safest, there’s no escaping out of these and can be customised. I’ve had small clip on lights for winter walks that will flash and reflective Velcro pieces that you can add to your harness or collar, I bought the lights off eBay.

    My favorite harness is their Non-Stop Dogwear. I kept a second line on them until they were trained. Now I just use a running belt and the sled commands.

    Thanks very much I made a pen for him and he seems to be enjoying it with the company of our other dog very much! I don’t think I will be neutering anytime soon, if at all. Thanks to both of you for the information and help!

    Thanks Chelseafan. Most places are on lockdown. Will try them out as soon as they reopen

    For what its worth I agree totally with cheaseafan. Giving them the chop before they are fully grown interferes with the growth plates and is intimated in more likelyhood of cruciat ligament problems etc. For a husky I would leave him to at least 18 months if you want to go down that route. I have one rescued husky who was neutered before I got him and another that was not - and still is not 4 years later. No difference whatsoever in their temperatments - in fact the neutered one is more likely to make a dash 'for freedom' than the un-neutered one. Both are complete lunatics. The prey-drive of the neutered one is far higher than the un-neutered one - but that is more likely to be just down the the individual dog than anything to do with his 'bits' A happy care-free husky owner has high fences and secure gates - we have expert level Houdinis for companions.

    Hi, the age that he is now is the time his prey drive is kicking in, he’ll take every opportunity he can to escape and hunt for prey. If he’s tied up for long periods of time he will become very bored and this can lead to separation anxiety, husky’s are an intelligent breed and as much as they love to be with us they are independent. Shock collars, in my opinion, are cruel and can lead to fear and aggression, using one of these will hinder your bonding with him. Neutering is a personal preference, for some dogs who’ve had the chop they can become overweight and lazy and for some it has made no difference to their behaviour at all. I’d do more research before you decide, there’s evidence to suggest it’s not as healthy for them to have it done as vets lead us to believe. I have 2 males and I decided against it after researching, one of mine had an undescended testicle and a vet I saw was badgering me to have both testes removed as she said the other one wouldn’t drop. I didn’t agree to it and it did drop. Neutering him would not stop him running off either, he was bred to run, it’s in their DNA, plenty of exercise, physical and mental is the only way forward. A fenced area is the way to go for safety and a chance for him to run his energy off, it would need to be at least 6 foot high and a horse wired fence is very strong. Husky’s can dig and are really good at it, you’d need to ensure he couldn’t dig his way out underneath the fence, they are Houdini’s! Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    Yep v understandable. In my case my shop round the corner (0.8m from me) has everything! If you are desperate, I can ask if he will post a bag or two to you He has Natural Dark Gravy bones; small or large marrow bones; fluffy rabbit ears or dried nonfluff ones; various chews; natural dried chicken feet, or turkey feet; LoveJoys & Forthglade vac-packs, sealed. And lots more. I'm very fortunate to have free bones too, from my butcher in town. Just rang: Nigel - Animals Only: animal feed, tack, bedding leads, harnesses, toys etc etc from equine to dogs, cats, birds, fish.. 01684273050 Nigel Sligh does already post out dog supplies/feed/treats from ebay, but has said he can find cheapest courier/posting options for you. If no answer leave message or try again - he is pretty busy.. From GL20 (Tewkesbury). ❤👍🤗

    I’m of the same opinion, that puppy shots and first booster are necessary after that I feel, in my opinion, that any other booster shots are unnecessary. There are so many articles around telling us we need this and that for our pets, but i think it’s about financial gain for company’s that sell them and the vets. Pet company’s are well aware of what we’re willing to spend on our beloved fur babies but the majority of it is unnecessary, lots of research is needed before we buy into what they tell us is best.
