  2. We want to go next year, however we're going to wait until a couple of months before the date to see if Wales relaxes some of the lockdown rules. We will just have see what the conditions are in early April. This year is the first year in 10 years we haven't been to Husky Camp. When the conditions are safe, we'll be back. . . . We miss you guys.

  3. We as it stands right now are not booking anything to do with camp as it took me 90 days to get moneys back this year and I feel the way things are going we could well find us in the same boat again, having said that I'll come down to see whoever visits but only doing it from here and not staying which when I think about it makes more sense seen as it only takes one of us to drive back and forth. Them that are worried about booking vans there really is no need to rush it's a quite week when we go and so long it's it's booked the month before I can't see them being booked up.

  10. OK guys, I know quite a few of you have been asking about next years dates for camp. The reality is, even though I know things are opening more, it doesn't actually put us in any better situation than we were in when I last posted. The rules that affect us have not changed in any way, and are not likely to any time soon. The reality is, we are still a group. We're not 2/3 people going on holiday somewhere. So with the above said, I'm going to post what the dates would be if it were to go ahead, but you need to read all of this before you decide on whether or not you want to book. REA

  11. And that would be Wales now done the same. Except in Wales the rule is As none of us are in the same extended household group, it actually means none of us can meet up. This is why I said I wasnt announcing camp in any way until this lot was all over. Had I done a full announcement on the normal camp, and started organizing everything, it would have been broken in less than a week. Camp will not refund you unless they physically have to close, and at the moment they dont. So please please bear that in mind.

  12. Less than 24 hours and things are already changing. Had the change in rules to only 6 people being allowed to gather been in Wales, and in May, we would be screwed. This is why we've been reluctant to add dates. It's only 6 months away.

  16. One thing for others to bear in mind with this is exactly whats just been said about the amount. If its not a huge amount then it may be worth the voucher. If however its getting to 3-400 like ours, then personally I would take the money. One thing to be very aware of is that not all businesses will make it out of this. And that includes big ones. I certainly wouldnt trust a company holding money of mine at the moment

  17. So, Im here to tell you what most of you already know, and was looking more and more likely in any case. For the first time since 2008, husky camp has now been officially cancelled. The UK government made it clear that any form of hospitality places will not be open until July at the very earliest. I suspect even in that case, camp sites will not likely be one of the first of those, and in any case its of course too late for camp regardless. The Welsh government are actually more locked down at present than that of the rest of the UK, with restriction of movement of people.

  18. Got my notification a couple of weeks back. Personally I’m taking the voucher, as soon as they open, I’ll go anyway just for a break from the status quo. Not worried about expiry dates as they will extend them until they open, regardless of when that is. But mine was only £130 so, not exactly a massive bonus. @Marc is right though. Can’t plan anything until we know the score, we don’t know how long this will last. :-(

  26. Welcome to the forum - although a rant is not the usual introduction ! Some of our members have up to 40 dogs to look after and have done so for many many years, some work in rescue centres, - some like me have only 2 - but have had dogs for over 40 years - so between us we have quite a bit of experience. However none of us are vets - so bearing in mind the combined experiences if we suggest somone takes their dog to a vet - its because we truly consider that a medical assessment might be necessary. I am sorry that you find your vets in the USA so expensive - a lot

  27. Huskies are pack animals , they like being with their family , do you plan to keep him outside or just feed him outside? They are very energetic and need good walks everyday , how high is your fence ? They do like to escape sometimes Some dogs do fight , others don't, id stay clear of any stray dogs if possible , my girl husky doesn't like other dogs anymore because she has been attacked by another dog Mine love kids but it's up to you if you want to go through the trouble of house training a puppy (puppies do like to nip also) or an adult dog who will most likely hav

  28. Not an expert by any means - but some huskies on here live in India where the temps are even higher. As long as she has access to a cold floor, plenty of water and, say, a paddling pool where she can get wet and therefore cool she should be absolutely fine. Hopefully some members from warmer climates will be able to help you further.

  29. I was about to suggest the same thing as Robke. If my boys get into a heavy play session their paws also go like yours - afraid neither would tolerate me touching their paws for a photo - but it looks like ordinary abraison to me. Keep him off the concrete for a bit - preferably grass to give his paws time to heal up - and try to get some paw wax.

  30. Just as another update here, as I'm still being asked about camp. Since this was originally posted, we have got from up to 30 people being allowed to meet outdoors, down to not being able to meet anyone outside your own household in the area where camp is, nobody from outside the area even being allowed into this area, and the camp site itself I believe is closed. I wont post anything else on this now unless anyone asks again, but needless to say, this is why no camp is happening until all this is over. I know you guys want it on, and so do I. But we have no option at all.

  31. Good afternoon all! Simka here with a quick update. Well, as you can see me and GrizzLee have had an awesome afternoon: As soon as Aunty Kristen got home from school, we went absolutely nutso and trapped her on the couch and each claimed a yummy chewy Reebok. We turned into big hungry sneaker monsters and they immediately went right into our mouths. We growled and snorted as we slobbered and chewed on them hungrily. Eventually we wrestled them right off her feet! Unfortunately Aunty has to leave in a little while so we are going to eat them all up for dessert as

  36. you can also try keeping your shirt or any other clothing with your scent with him while you are making him sleep alone. Your smell from clothes will help him sleep bit more comfortably in the start. This helped my pup.. but still if finds way in our room want to sleep with us :) .

  37. If your dog is with you all day - why then shut him out at night?? I really do not understand. He is obviously distressed by this. Huskies for the most part WANT to be with their owners - they were bred for thousands of years to sleep with the family - especially the children - in order to keep the kids warm through the night. Why distress a new dog - that will already be suffering from anxiety, stress etc having changed owners, home, environment, routine................... everything he has known all his life. It does not bode well (in my experience) for yourselves o

  39. I believe it would be very unusual for her to just now start showing signs of depression after two years. If I read that correctly. The medication could be making her depression worse. When you take her to the vet would you be comfortable with asking them if there is holistic way of treating her conditions? I originally started off treating my pups for their medical conditions with whatever pills the vet suggested. They ended up causing more issues. I switched to a holistic vet and over a few months their symptoms subsided and was able to reverse some of the damage in my male.

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  42. 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. T

  44. We aren’t new to Huskies, but when our last one died (14 years ago) he took part of my husband’s heart. We now have a bonded pair who are almost 10 months old. Thor and Loki. Plus we have an 11 yo Aussie named Pippa who hates their guts... She was mourning her brother’s death when we got the pups so we thought she’d bond with them, but sadly she hasn’t. I guess I don’t have a lot of questions - just introducing myself. ☺️
