  2. Personally I hate that people cross everything with a poodle these days, either get a bernese or get a poodle and research each breed to see which is a better fit and what would suit your lifestyle more , with a cross breed you never know 100% what traits you'll get from each side

  4. I make bone broth for my two boys on a weekly basis (I get lamb ribs - the bone portion of their meals, spines - you would be amazed at how much meat there is on a lamb spine, and leg bones - sawn in half for me) all free, - in exchange for a couple of 600ml tubs of bone broth. Most of the bone broth goes into the freezer for the dogs during the week - but I also fill up two ice cube trays with the liquid only - and once frozen empty the trays into a small container - and doggie bone broth ice lollies are on tap whenever the dogs fancy one. Not only do the dogs LOVE them, but bone broth ice lollies also do not set as hard as plain water does – so it is easier to eat for any old dogs. It also has the advantage of being a healthy treat - containing around 30 of the 43 vital vitamins, minerals, amino acids etc that are required daily. A high level treat that will cool them down and provide valuable nutrition - what's not to like??

  11. It's an official husky what? For nearly a decade now, we have been running an official husky camp for our forum members. This is a chance for people to get to meet in person, and for many a holiday that is easier to do with the dogs. This is done in a way that both people and huskies can enjoy. It was started originally as a way to get around it being difficult to have a holiday with dogs, and make it easier to enjoy due to everyone around you also having dogs of their own. When is it? Husky camp for 2022 will run from Friday 13th-20th May (Friday to Friday) Where is it? The Meadows (this is the field we are generally on, but just ask for where the husky group is staying) Ty Mawr Holiday Park Conwy LL2 9HG What about covid? As much as I wish we had control over this, clearly we don't. I will be adding things related to this at a later point in time, but for now just bear in mind that we have no control (obviously) over what the government decide. We have been restricted on this for 2 years now, and there is nothing to say we wont be next year. Currently there are covid passports required for some events and for nightclubs. Last week that didnt exist. I suspect we will be fine by then, but just bear it in mind. Obviously (or I certainly hope it is) if someone has covid, you would need to remove yourself from camp. If you have it before, you would be expected not to attend. I hope however that this is pretty obvious. How do I book? You can book through their website, which is here https://www.parkdeanresorts.co.uk/location/wales/ty-mawr/ Ring this number to book for some reason the website is playing up there are caravans available 01745832079 (Let them know you want The Meadows Field if you are camping. ) LET ME KNOW ONCE YOU HAVE BOOKED, AND CAN ADD YOUR NAME TO THE LIST Is it just like a 'dog convention' type thing? Far from it LOL. Whenever I explain to people what husky camp is, in the shortest amount of words possible, it tends to be this. We go for walks and stuff during the day, enjoy food together, and generally have a good drink at night. We're about as far from being some boring convention as you could possibly get LOL. Are there many of you go? Am I welcome? Can I bring my partner etc We have had as many as 130 people at camp, and as little as 10. As you can see from that alone, the numbers can vary wildly. No need to ask if you are welcome at camp! Of course you are welcome! partners etc also welcome. All we ask is that you are responsible for the people that you bring (we are respected for being a good set of people, who are clean and tidy at camp, and don't cause trouble), adhere to camp rules, and generally don't give the site a bad name. What facilities are there? Electric hook up Static caravan hire or camping Shower and toilet blocks Eating places on and around camp Swimming pool Play area for the kids if you have any Wifi on site Where do you walk? What do you do? Just to give you a very brief idea of the kinds of things we do, based on years gone by. Some of which we do each year (of course not all). Beach walk Alyn Waters walk Talacre point walk Llandudno walk along the front Aber falls Newborough Forest - Anglesea Pensarn beach Conwy Castle / Conwy walk Sun Set walk Secure offload where all the dogs can be set free to let off some energy Meal over at the local restaurant BBQs done by Barry (small charge to cover costs between us) Breakfasts done by Dunc & Andy (small charge to cover costs between us) Camp fire and drinks at night Adult style pass the parcel (Yes, this really happens, and it hilarious!) Added a few pics here for people who haven't been before, to give you an idea. And also a video of the offlead, which is always fun Not sure who already booked at camp, and who didn't, so let me know if you already have

  13. After I adopted my Mina, I was at wits' end with her destructive behavior and seemingly insurmountable activity requirements. The lovely woman at the rescue organization suggested bringing Mina to the dog park a few times a week. It drains her energy in a way nothing else seemed to.... until I started bringing her to what I have been calling "school". it is a daycare for dogs where they run around with other dogs all day or half days. No more destructive behavior PERIOD. But. No more zoomies (which we love) and much shorter play sessions. But she LOVES other dogs and obviously loves to be off leash. Socialization with other dogs (esp huskies - they recognize their own kind) has been an amazing solution for Mina. She loves going, she loves when I pick her up. Win Win.

  15. Hello and welcome to the forum. The only thing I can think of it to take potty training right back to the begining. Take her out (in the garden) after every meal, drink, and at her age possibly every hour (rather than half hourly with a very young pup) - and just stay with her until she goes. She will have to go sooner or later. Have plenty of treats in your pocket so the reward is immediate. Holding it will not be doing her any good at her age obviously. If you can devote two whole days to nothing but her potty training she should get the message. Just dont let her back inside the house until she has done something - but stay with her, don't leave her on her own so she thinks it is a punishment, play with her, do some other training etc. This would be an excellent time to try and sort out a toilet area for her - so she knows it is 'safe' to go there and is her's alone.

  16. 😄 I didn't think this would be the place to disuade me !! I think the fact I'm even asking the question means I've already made up my mind. Lets be honest, no other dog even comes close to being a consideration. 😍 How are your 2 beauties doing? I remember their gorgeous faces from before.

  22. Update: we are in the process of planning trip #2 with our pup (Luna). Her first road trip was at 12 weeks, and she is now almost 15 weeks. She did really well on her first trip (6 hours one way). No problems at all... she alternated between playing with her toys, and sleeping. I did ride in the back seat with her, and I think that was really helpful. We stopped after 2 hours but the location wasn't good - too much traffic and she was too nervous to do her business. We went a little farther to a quieter spot, and she went potty, had a drink, and stretched her legs. I won't say she loves being in the car, she more-so tolerates it, but she seems relaxed enough. Also, I believe that she must be a husky mix. She isn't fluffy like a husky. We don't care. We love her anyways. 🥰

  26. I have a family (son and grandson), but thanks to lockdown restrictions I have not seen them for around 20 months (they live around 350 miles away in Wales) -- but my two fur babies get mentioned in practically every conversation I have with anyone - even supermarket checkout girls!. They are such a big part of my life, why would I not mention them. If anyone thinks that is strange - that's fine by me - I just dont talk to them again! You are my type of person - self sufficient, grow your own food, keep chickens, love your dog to the point of distraction and not afraid to show it - what the hell is wrong with that?? Ditch the people - get another dog.

  27. We feed our dogs everything from raw food to dehydrated frozen raw food to home cooked food to wet (tinned) food to top quality kibble type food etc. Different people have different ideas as to what constitues a good diet for their dogs depending on their budget, desire to give the best nutrition possible for that budget, time available to prepare the food, or convenience to the owner. Convenience to the owner usually translates to higher vet bills as the dog gets older - not always, but quite often. What do you WANT to feed your dog? How important does nutrition and food quality play out compared to how convenient and easy it is for you? How much research are you prepared to do on dog food nutrition? How much can you afford to spend a week on your dog's food? Firstly though I would ask you to consider the breed, its characteristics, challenges and requirements for exercise, companionship and mental stimulation - not a breed recommended if you both work all day and want a house to come home to. The husky is not for a novice owner - not if you want a happy, contented dog. How much serious research have you already done on the breed? I am sorry if I sound 'down' - we all know they are cute - but that is not the basis you should use to judge what would make you a suitable owner for a fantastic breed of dog - too many end up in rescue centres because people did not do their research on the challenges this breed can bring. If you want a dog that will do everything you want him to, be obedient all the time etc - get a labrador. If you want a breed that will challenge you, outwit you several times a week, will obey you around 50% of the time if you are lucky, seems to have an inbred "what's in it for me" attitude, has one of the highest prey-drives in the canine kingdom (small furries beware), have an inate tendency to NOT come to recall once out of puppy stage so should never be trusted off lead. They are also consumate escape artists - able to climb things you would not believe. Then yes, get a husky. Having said all that - we obviously think they are the best dogs on the planet - but they are not the breed for everyone.

  30. I finally managed to get an appointment with our vet - been trying on and off for 6 months but as it was not urgent they would not see him - seeing urgent cases only. Around 6 months ago I noticed that Marley's eyes were not as clear as they were when he was a pup, they were clouding over. They were not bothering him, not weeping or anything so I just kept an eye on it. Today I finally got him to the vet. The vet came out to him and we chatted for a bit - then he tried to take Marley inside, as soon as Marley twigged I was not coming in - all hell let loose. Bucking, jumping, pulling on lead, biting at lead, yelping - it took Andrew and one of his nurses to get him inside .................... I didn't know who to feel sorriest for Marley or the vet. Around 25 minutes later he came out with Marley, Marley nearly pulled him over in his eagerness to get to me and he jumped up me and kissed me, literally like a Jack-in-the-box, I haven't seen him that pleased to see me for ages. He has Stromal Corneal Dystrophy. One good thing the vet said is that in Siberian Huskies the condition is usually mild - they tend to have the mildest form of SCD of any breed of dog. It is an inherited disease and is caused by fat not being properly processed and small deposits are left in the eyes. There is no treatment unless the eye ulcerates - which he said was very rare. He should retain his sight - it will be more noticeable to us than to him evidently. I was dreading the diagnosis of cataracts (£5,000 an eye) so whilst he will get worse as he gets older and there is nothing I can do about it, I wont end up with a severely vision impaired dog, I have had blind cats in the past. I also asked for him to be weighed as he has put on weight in the last 2 years (not seen a vet in 2 years so I could not weigh him) - he is now 30 kilos and should be 27 ish - so the little tyke is going on a diet!

  32. If the dog is born there it can be acclimatised to the weather but you still want to take precautions making sure you have aircon for the dog, plenty of shade and access to water etc day and night , you'll also have to be careful when and how long you walk for aswell , are there any husky owners in your area you could meet up with and talk to or even a breeder you could talk to before you fully decide?

  33. Neighbourhood Watch Network is supporting Sussex's Police and Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, who, in partnership with the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC), has created an online survey designed to understand the public’s perception of dog theft, enforcement, and the prosecution of offenders. The survey includes a question seeking views on whether dogs should be treated in law merely as property when they are stolen. Having a common understanding of how the public feels about this issue will help inform discussions that PCCs and NWN will have nationally, as well as allow police forces to better understand the public’s views. Mrs Bourne said: "Pet theft, dog theft in particular, is a growing concern for the public and their fear has been perpetuated over the last couple of weeks with shocking reports in the media of more dogs being snatched by criminals. "I am incredibly eager to get more detail around this issue and understand residents’ views and if they feel more could be done to respond to their concerns or for more preventative measures to be put in place to better protect their pets.” Neighbourhood Watch Network have just been approached to help support this campaign so apologies for the short notice as the survey closes on Friday12th March. Please, if you can, and haven't already, take a couple of minutes to complete the survey as your support and views are really valuable to us. SURVEYMONKEY.CO.UK Dog theft survey

  37. Thank you, Wolfpup. It can be difficult with rescue dogs if you don't know their history, or they've had a rough time, teaching them that things are ok and what triggered their reaction before isn't still an issue, but it sounds like you are doing well and making progress with Mikey. Keep up the good work 😊 Thanks, Nix x

  38. Its great to know there is another husky nut in Lancashire. I have two rescues, Marley, 6yo (someone showed him the Film Marley & Me when he was a pup - and he has taken that Marley as a role model) A loveable air-head (avatar piccy). Mikey is the relative newcomer joined us early last year when he was coming up to 3.5 / 4yo - had an unfortunate past and we are still dealing with it - one step forward and two back some days - but we are getting there, at least he hasn't bitten me for nearly 4 months. Never been bored a day since we got a husky

  39. OK Before I do an awful lot of work I am posting something up that is already on here somewhere - it is a list of posts - mainly from Dogs Naturally Magazine giving details about raw feeding. This is the most natural way to feed your dog - giving him/her the type of nutrition her body will most easily recognise and assimilate food - it is the same type of food the canine breed has been eating for millions of years. These are in no particular order - just things I collected on the way to preparing as near a perfect diet for my boys as I can. https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/starting-puppy-on-raw-diet/ https://www.carnivora.ca/html/carnivora-dogs/Puppy-Nutrition/index.cfm https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/raw-diets-for-dogs-getting-enough-vitamins-and-minerals/ The one above is one of the most important informational posts you will ever read https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/raw-feeding-primer/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_campaign=Raw%20Feeding%20Primer%3A%2010%20Simple%20Rules%20To%20Get%20Started&utm_content=raw-feeding-primer https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/why-feed-raw/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/make-raw-feeding-simple/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/nutrient-dense-raw-food-diet-for-dogs/?inf_contact_key=5ec007131d072cc3a0aa3cb24ce9ebdd9c9cc56d1f36fb80984f9ab35054c30e https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/raw-feeding-primer/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_campaign=Raw%20Feeding%20Primer%3A%2010%20Simple%20Rules%20To%20Get%20Started&utm_content=raw-feeding-primer https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/transition-your-dog-to-raw-5-herbs-that-help/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/the-truth-about-dog-food-and-supplements/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/how-to-make-bone-broth-for-your-dog/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/healthy-gut-dog/?inf_contact_key=0f5f20139147ecf334de97aa7a4fd6e40402b5be8ba5b9bdb74a322200174bdc https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/nutrient-dense-raw-food-diet-for-dogs/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/what-to-feed-your-dog-for-healthy-skin-and-coat/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/raw-meat-diet-for-dogs-7-myths-you-wont-believe/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_term=7%20Myths%20About%20A%20Raw%20Meat%20Diet%20For%20Dogs&utm_content=7-myths-about-a-raw-meat-diet-for-dogs https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/5-nutritious-herbs-every-dog-needs/ https://www.snowdog.guru/zinc-deficiency-the-hidden-cause-of-sickness-in-huskies/ https://www.snowdog.guru/correcting-zinc-deficiency-in-huskies/ https://www.snowdog.guru/zinc-deficiency-seizures-huskies/ https://www.snowdog.guru/husky-diet-raw-food-cooked-homemade-diets/ https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/whats-the-best-dog-vitamin/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=Newsletter&utm_content=whats-the-best-dog-vitamin%2F Once you have worked your way through the above posts you will have a fairly good idea of what your dog should be eating - then if you are still wanting to provide your dog with the best nutrition I will start to go into specifics. It is a lot easier than you think - and much cheaper than the best quality kibbles around - but it will take time - time to sort out the best butchers, raw dog food supplier etc., and time to read, understand and create the ideal diet for your particular dog - my two boys are on different raw diets as one has severe food allergies and can not eat any poultry of any kind or pork. The main advantage of raw feeding is that you are not storing up trouble for later in your dog's life. Commercial dog foods all have to conform to that country's guidelines (e.g. AAFCO in the U.S.A. etc) - but one thing you must bear in mind is these guidelines state the MINIMUM amount of nutrition a dog requires to prevent it becoming sick and DYING. Your ideal is to provide the maximum nutrition - so your dog's body is not having to work as hard to get all the different types of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, trace elements etc it needs in order to be able to function at optimal levels. You also will not be feeding your dog all the additives and chemicals that are found legally in commercial 'convenient' foods, in order to comply with those guidelines. From the 1950's & '60's we have seen the lifespan of our canines plummet - from an average of 16-17 years down to around 10-13 years - This is mainly down to what the dog has eaten all its life (commercial - 'convenient' foods) - but also because of all the vaccinations most dogs are subjected to nowadays. The worlds oldest dog was around 32 years old when she died - an Australian sheepdog (from memory), rarely fed by its owner (used to catch most of her own food whilst out working), not spayed until she was over 20 I believe, never received an injection, out working all day long on the sheep farm, covering miles and miles each day working with the owner. Now think of the life of most of our dogs lead today - notice a difference?

  40. 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 of us are based in the UK and our vets are not that expensive in comparison and well within affordability for most people - usually a diagnostic session will cost less than $30. My own vet charges £19 ($25.96) for a 12 month check-up - full examination visit. I know you acknowledge that the post you reacted to was 10 years old ............................. is it possible that attitudes might have changed in those 10 years (although we do still give the same advice today on occasions)? or did you check if the person recommending the vet visit was an experienced, long standing member, or a newbie with unknown experience levels - also you must bear in mind the amount of information given in the original post, was it complete or a little confused, were pictures offered? People can only react to the information provided. If we do what you suggest and say nothing whatsoever - then the person making the post could consider us uncaring as no one 'bothered to even reply'.

  41. Huskies have a very high prey drive - that is well known - however it does depend on the dog and the way it was raised in a lot of cases. One of my boys would kill a cat/squirrel/rodent/bird on sight - the other has a cat as a best friend, did not attack a fledgling bird flapping in our garden this spring - even though young (dead) birds are part of his diet. When he was younger he did go for one of my hens that got out - but did not kill it - just grabbed it by the neck and held it down. When I reached them he let go of the hen and on examination she was found to only have lost a few feathers but was otherwise unharmed (but she did not try to escape again). In the past I have had most breeds of dog, ranging from spaniel/collie mixes to a massive borzoi (7ft 2" from nose to tail) - all rescues, all different in behaviour and attitudes - all needing various degrees of different approaches. The husky is unique in many ways - but I would never consider another breed of dog now. My boys prefer being indoors with their 'pack' - as do 95% of dogs - yes they also like the cool weather and being in the garden (one more than the other). Neither of my boys has even seen a sled (although one at least would be a natural), rarely get totally off lead as my nearest secure field is now over 40 miles away (there are 'secure' fields closer - but they are not husky-secure) They are talkative, will argue with you, will ignore you more than most breeds of dog, - its in their DNA - they develop a "what's in it for me" attitude at quite an early age - they are frighteningly intelligent and will outwit you on numerous occasions - will obey every command as pups, recall can be excellent - as pups - but as an adult this can not be trusted - it does not mean you stop the training though. You have done more research into huskies than 99% of new prospective husky parents - you know their traits, don't let other people's ignorance of the breed put you off going for the dog you have dreamed of. How many of the people who have been negative are experienced husky owners? If you are looking forward to laughing every day, being kept on your toes, having a dog that will be more of a companion than a 'pet' with his/her own ideas - and not afraid to express them, a dog that will not dutifully do everything it is told like a performing seal, but more 'thinking than blindly obedient' - then get your husky and give him/her one of the best husky parents any dog could wish for.

  42. Hi Thank you for the advice. I started putting my hand out and stepping back and though the side. Which has made me less of a target for her jumps. We also consulted with our friend/trainer, and figured out that some of her jumps are rude greetings and others are from frustration. Often the jumping happens on leash when she wants to go one way but I'm taking us another. I've got her to stop jumping for the most part. Now she just sits down to protest the fact that she's not in charge. That I can deal with. Treats, games, and something fun to do in the direction I want to go and we're off. The greeting behavior has been solved too. So all is good. Thanks Shelley
