Now she is gray. 7 weeks 12 weeks 4 months 9 months The boy changed a little but not like his sissy. 7 weeks 12 weeks 4 months 9 months Its hard to tell how the coloring will change. Every pup is different.

    I had a hell of time with my two. One would sleep and the other would cry and so on.... just like human twins. LOL I spent 6 months on the couch in the living room. I stay at home, hubby works long hours, and we had diarrhea and sickness issues. My pups turned 9 months yesterday and have had free roam of the house for two weeks now. I did / still do crate training during the day. Started with putting the crates in the middle of the living room with the door open at all times. I would do all feedings in the crate. *say the command (crate-kennel- whatever word you want her to know) Start by not shutting the door. After a week or so I would start shutting the door but let her out the second she is done eating. Did that for a few weeks. Then I slowly started extending the time (30 seconds) using wait command. I also did a lot of other command training that really helped with the crate. Sit, down, stay, release, Pups run to their crate when I give the command. I say sit and then give them food. They have to be laying down before I open the door. Even with the door open they are not to leave it until I say release. They go in their crates to eat their meals and in the middle of the day I will give them their chewy. Normally last 45 to an hour. But the rest of the time their crates are open. They go in on their own and nap or when they want alone time to chew on something. Other then that, they have free roam of the parts of the house I allow them to. I have kiddy gates blocking the kitchen, cat room, and dinning room. I also have a doggie door that stays open. These guys need to be near you. If you don’t have room in your bedroom for the crate make a den in your room. I have now moved their crates into another room that is Husky proof and keep that door open and they have beds in the master and living room. It’s good to get them ok with being in crates in case they have to go to the vet or there is an emergency or something. But these guys are pack driven and need to be around you as much as possible.

    It was a small infection vet said not to let her lick because she could become ill.... (cone of shame for a few days ) they say sometimes when long haired dogs go into heat it’s best to trim them some because bacteria could build up. Plenty of water and personally keeping the area clean. Was a bit worried but glad my angels ok! Next appointment is her getting fixed they say that will stop that from happening along with cancer and pyro risks....

    I know, I'm still waiting for him to become escape artist and show his true husky temper I don't want to be naive and I still keep in mind that he might change. I'll do my best tho.

    Huskies are very stubborn and have very selective hearing! Can I just ask at you only giving treats when she does what you ask? And are you giving her the food even when she’s barking at you or do you wait for her to stop? If you are giving her food when she’s displaying the bad behaviour she will think she’s being rewarded for it. If you’ve not done already, wait for her to calm down before giving her the food. Just calmly ignore her and start doing something else like washing up until she’s calm, then make her sit and wait before she gets the food Regarding destruction, she may be bored or have separation anxiety if it happened while you were out. Huskies are working dogs and do require a lot of mental stimulation! Do you play games with her at home? Not many dogs like being patted on the head as they can’t see where your hand is. A tickle on the tummy usually goes down a lot better Recall is 0% with all huskies! They just don’t have recall, which is why they should never be let off lead unless in a secure area with high boundary fences Regarding the pulling, it is a huskies instinct to pull no matter how long the lead is! For training her not to pull I would take the long lead away as this gives her to much freedom and you can’t control a dog on an 8m lead. Get a simple slip lead and put it as high up her head as possible, just behind her ears. You’ve got control over her then, if she starts to pull tug on the lead and make a sharp ‘tsk’ noise. Don’t let her walk in front of you while you’re training her. When she’s learnt some better manners, try a walking belt as if she does pull then it’s a lot less strain on your arms & back Huskies don’t want to please humans, it’s just not their nature as a breed! They will do what they want, when they want unfortunately. They do have a what’s in it for me attitude and they are very independent. But that’s what I live about them! I’ve only ever had boys so I can’t say whether spaying will help You will get there, huskies don’t really reach adulthood until they are about 2 so she’s still a pup at the moment. Keep going with the positive reinforcement, but don’t get frustrated as she will sense it Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    I’ve loved every minute despite the issues, they are so worth the effort required to train them, once you have that bond with them theres no feeling like it. I had my hip replaced 2 weeks ago and they have been fantastic, they’re careful when they walk by me as I’m on crutches, there’s no silly playing by me, they’re not leaving me at night as I’m sleeping downstairs. They know I’m not at my best at the moment and their behaviour is impeccable, it does help that I’m at home with them. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

    Can you please post your husky babies' family photos if you have any? I kinda want to see what to expect with my littleone. He started out white but his color is starting to come in slowly. I think he's going to look like his mom. Photos of your dogs parents or siblings would be greatly appreciated.. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    What helped us to crate-train our rescue was: - luring him in with treats (always a positive experience to enter the crate) - staying near him where he could see me, so that he feels relaxed and will settle/sleep At first he was very restless and I would hear the crate going "clang! clang! clang!" often in the middle of the night (ugh). But then it seemed that he became relaxed in there, and I would only hear one gentle "clang" if he turned around. After a few weeks, he accepted the crate as his "bedroom" and would go in on command ("go to bed!") turn around a few times and settle. I then left the couch and moved back into our bedroom, and he was fine (XL crate was too big to fit in bedroom) I agree with the idea of crate in your bedroom, or if it won't fit, maybe using the pen to pen off a small corner of the bedroom (with waterproof liner/towels underneath). Perhaps she'll be calm if she can see/smell you. Seeing you asleep, is also a good message to her that SHE should be asleep! She is a cutie!!

    I tried it for 2 days and mine hated it, plus I wanted to be able to get them used to free roam around the house with no issues, there was a video on the forum somewhere showing how to get them used to going in it using treats, taking it slow and building the time up so she sees it as a good place. Husky’s love to be with us and near us maybe you could put the crate in the bedroom at night so she can see you. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

    Just an update in case anyone else runs into this. There is no meds that can be given. It goes away on its own. Highly contagious to only other dogs. Pups under 2 years. Then it is only like 20% chance of it passing to another pup. It is common for them to bleed. (When they rough house) It is a theory, crushing one will activate the immune systems response and speed up recovery. * was advised they would get a lot more (in clusters) and it will take a few months for them to start to go away. My girl had 6 and the boy had one. Had one in each of their mouths crushed and there has been no further outbreak. Plus the ones that the girl did have are almost all gone. It’s only been 7 days. So, I am going with the theory. It was worth a vet visit just to crush one. Even though the vet said about 95% of dogs do not have complications from this and do not need to see a vet, I still watched for any signs of difficulties breathing (they can spread to the back of the throat and lungs- very rare) and for infection. Plus I highly recommend going to the vet to have one crushed.

    So it will eat....I am simple with things like this Feed what you want your dog to have, leave it for 15 mins then take it away repeat next feeding time...do not over do it with the yummy treats during this time or even any treats as they then become treat eating only pups... All the fussing about with different foods makes them funny and fussy eaters....

    Just a thought on how to protect his wound, how about a life jacket? They’re pretty tough? Tablets are a night mare, when Luna was so sick and they sent me home with 2 lots of tablets to give her I just thought, what are they expecting me to do with tablets, I’ve just told them she hasn’t eaten or drunk anything in over 24 hours? I actually got 2 down her by syringing water in after them, then of course she vomited and up the capsule came. She was so sick by the next day that we took her back and they admitted her thank god, she’d be dead if they hadn’t. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    have you tried a chicken and rice/noodle soup, yes soup put it in a liquidizer so no lumps and he might drink his dinner (you may have to add chicken stock if its too thick to thin it out)

    So I would fall under the; Around Huskies 24/7. LOL I have PTSD and severe anxiety. I have had a number of other dogs and different breeds. (I loved and spoiled all of them) However, I feel the demands my two have on me has pulled me out of a lot of my triggers, bring me out of my comfort zone, and (my male especially) comforts me when he senses when I am off.

    My girl gained while she was on lock down for a month. Vet said no more weight gain. 😲. I am going to leave her food alone and just up her exercise. Have to start slow to build her up to it. 🙂 Did the vet suggest cutting back the food? I am not sure but if I had to cut her food, I would do it slowly.

    Yea. I hear you. the videos here are normal. I’m 35 years old, on my 5th Husky. I’ve seen this a million times. Between sibling parent/child huskies. With that being said, the throat grabbing, is scary. I’ve only seen it a few times, when things were getting out of control. And I had to step in. But that was always over a bone, or treat or food. If it persists, I would keep looking into it. I’d love to see the video for a better idea, but I’m not your savior with all the answers. i definitely have a lot more experience with huskys than your average person, other than an actual breeder. 335A60E3-CEDC-42DC-BB74-8C2AB56D6698.MOV 6C058A72-1147-4CDC-9198-82824A0BF635.MOV

    Hey everyone, firstly, I hope everyone had an awesome holiday season, and a good start into the new year... ⭐ I am Scarlett, but am most commonly referred to as Scar, I am 20 and from South Africa. Me and my dad, Peter, have the privilege of currently housing 10 furbabies (1 horse, 4 cats and 5 gorgeous puppies). 🐎🐶🐱 My oldest rescue (pictured with the big smile and different coloured eyes) is called Anyu and is approximately 10 years old. Anyu loves going on runs and eating our neighbours rabbits (adjusted fencing has helped avoid more devastating losses to the bunny population)🐰 Layla, the smaller husky on the left, also a rescue, suffers from major insecurities which we are still trying to ease, however, she is most likely our strongest husky and definitely the fastest. Her favorite time is couch time and swim time. Layla is about 5-6 years old now. 🌬 The youngest guy is called Siku (pronounced 'Shiku') and was our christmas miracle from our South African Husky Rescue center, due to apparent rough handling pre-surrender, he is definitely lacking in confidence, but coming along faster than a bullet. Currently he is in an open relationship with chicken viennas and he has just reached 13 weeks of age, marking his second week in our care.🕯 Our small dogs are both not pictured (most of my pictures are stored elsewhere), their names are Ella and Cherry B. Ella is a Toy Pom, who is approximately 14 years old and extremely tired of our huskies' energy. 🙄 Cherry B is an 8 year old rescue Pekingese, who is about 98% blind (she can sometimes see differences in light) and is definitely the boss dog. 😎 If I could only chose a few of the most prominent lessons I have learnt from my huskies, they would be patience, understanding and to always make double sure that my double gating system is intact and foolproof (as possible). 😂

    in the eyes of the law a dog is property so all they could do is charge with criminal damage, you would have to get some one like rspca involved to get them charged for that. Police dogs and horses are attacked a lot and in most cases they do not even bother to press charges for the attacks it was why we tried to bring the Finn's Law in to protect service animals but that stupid idiot polatiticain that blocks all member bills on principal that bloced teh upskirting law stopped it

    I know how you feel as I have an epi dog as well. It's heartbreaking to watch him during his fits, and sometimes he doesn't have a grand mal, but just twitches and drools alot. Unfortunately I had to put him on drugs to control them, but we are maxed out on what he can take. I started him on CBD oil several months ago, and I have seen an improvement. He still has some breakthroughs so I might up his dosage. Hopefully no one will give you grief because I feel that CBD oil is a great product for them, and they should research it to find that it is not the same as giving a dog marijuana.
