    Breeding a wooly with a standard coat wont cancel out the wooly , my girl is a wooly and both her parents were standard coats, its not just coat either, your dog and the bitch would need both hip/elbow and eye scoring and have a low enough score to make sure you're not passing anything hereditary down the line , this isnt something your normal vet can do and they do need to go to a specialist, he will also need to be breed standard (despite the coat) and kennel club registered, I'm not sure where you are in the world but here rescues are absolutely bursting at the seams full of Huskies, some specific husky rescues cant take any more in because they're so full theres a lot more to it then just putting a dog and a bitch together and hoping for the best, the sire owner has as much responsibility as the Dams owner with regards to If she needs an emergency c-section or to be on call in the middle of the night/early hours of the morning when she goes into labour , they're also just as responsible if down the line a pup owner cant keep their dog you would have to take them back on and you cant always guarantee dad and pup will get on down the line , he wont remember it's his pup we all love our dogs and would all love to have a part of them to carry on their legacy and remember them by but i don't think breeding is the way to go in doing it , no 2 Huskies are ever the same

    The rescue centre contacted me to say he arrived at his new home around 12.30 - they immediately took him to a secure dog park where he started to get to know the rest of his pack and he had a ball romping around and chasing them. Evidently he is already making up to the woman of the house - exactly the way he did with me ............... the tart! We packed him off with a new collar, new lead, a kilo of beef chunks, enough bones for 5 big dogs, a litre of water and a food bowl, several tins of sardines - he loves them for breakfast, and a ball on a rope. I have a feeling he is going to fit in just fine.

    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 guys, we have a new feature on the site. Husky of The Month! Now before you say we already had that...... well ..... kinda. It was all done through posts and a manual job. Now however we have a full section dedicated to husky of the month entries and voting, which is automatically done. You will find a link in the menu for this. Please submit yourself an entry, and let us know if you have any problems of feedback. This months will be a generic photo one, so no theme Would love you take credit for this one, but all credit goes to Andy at https://doglymail.com/ who have kindly provided us with the application to do this.

    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

    18 months ago we lost our Gobby girly Echo. She was a White german shepherd Dog. Recently we decided we wanted another shepherd. To give Darwin a companion and also to have a dog that can be trained to walk nicely and be let off lead with reliable recall. So we joined a Uk rescue, had a home check and started looking at possible adoptions. Then this interesting boy turned up. Say hello to Storm. A 4 year old Dutch Shepherd mix. the brindle coat is not the mix, that's the normal dutch shepherd coat. He's certainly a unique looking dawg Very few people will have heard of a Dutch shepherd, they were nearly wiped out during WWII, and most dutch shepherds end up with the Police or military as like Belgian Malinois they excel at that kind of work and so not many end up as pets. He is a good natured dog, loves people. He's really bonded with my seven year old granddaughter Eden-Willow and seems to get on with most other dogs. We've had him for a month, we've waited this long before announcing his arrival as sometimes a rescue may not work out for no fault of either the dog or the family, sometimes it's just not a good match. However he is settling in, He and Darwin have had a couple of scraps both instigated by Darwin being overly protective of his people, but we were expecting this so it's all good. Darwin is adjusting to the new dog in the pack and the occasional snarling and grumbling gets less by the day. He is a typical shepherd breed, always wanting to be by your side (even in the toilet !!!) always wanting a ball throw, and always happy to go for a walk. However his original family did no training with him, not even Sit!!! so we have a blank canvas and he's doing well and is eager to learn. You can all meet him at next years Husky Camp.

    This is something I posted a looooooooong time ago. . . . Sooooo. . . . How did you name your Huskies. .(or any pet for that matter) ?? We have had cats and other dogs before getting Koda And we’ve always gone through a torturous process in finding suitable names. We always start off by getting each member of the family to write down as many names as they can come up with, fun/cute /silly/absurd/normal or just plain boring all are considered. We try to take in to account any striking physical markings or differences. We then combine all the lists and give each family member a copy of the master list. Each person then has to choose thier top 5 names. We then combine the top 5’s and go around again until we have whittled several hundred names down to 5 that we all sort of like. . . . Now we get to the SHOUTY phase. . .lol We shout the names as if calling our dogs from a distance to see how they sound. . .coz. . . When your dog manages to get away from you and is barrelling across the park with the intention of inserting something physically into another dog, nose or. . .erm. . other bits. . . . or. . .deciding that , that teacup Yorkshire terrier is the ugliest cat its ever seen and well. . .it just has to be eaten. You are gonna start bellowing its name to get it to come back, stop or otherwise distract it. It’s at this point that “Veridian Gargoyle Saccharine Snugglebunnies” sounds utterly stupid as you leg it after your dog screaming THAT at the top of your lungs. Or if you have given it what you consider to be a suitable name for your so cute puppy. . .remember when half a ton of Rottwieler is going like a frieght train away from you, and you are shouting “Peanut!!!! come back Peanut” Many really great names have been discarded at the Shouty phase. So we are now down to a couple of names and we just start saying thenm to get a feel, does the dog respond, am I comfortable with the name? At this point we end up throwing the whole lot out because one of us says a name randomly out of the blue that everone just lights up and goes. . .”Oooooh yeah” Such was the case with both Echo and Koda. LOL. . . So how do you name your dogs. . . .

    Not quite so frenzied today - both dogs are unconscious - they have both been for long walks separately - hubby took Marley out and then 5 mins later our dog trainer arrived to take BANDIT out for assessment (officially renamed - it was the only name I could think of seeing his mask - and just could not really get the name Storm to stick in my mind) . Trainer impressed with him - he was non reactive to two barking dogs in a front garden - then he saw a cat walking across the road about 50ft in front of him. He was very intrerested but did not pull the lead to get to it. Last night Socks, our cat, came downstairs and complained loudly as he could not get through the gate - Bandit immediately rushed to the hallway to see what was making the strange noise - skidded to a halt by the gate looked at socks, sniffed through the bars - socks just sat there about 2 ft away and miowed at him - and Bandit backed off - walking backwards away from the gate. We are slightly encouraged by this - but will see how he is in a couple of weeks before trying to bring the two together within touching distance on either side of the gate. Today the dogs came up to me side by side - and I got the true height difference between them - Bandit is nearer 4 inches taller than Marley at the shoulders - and he is only 8 months old - time enough to grow more. After a play session I fed them both - bowls 1ft apart on either side of the large gate - absolutely no resource guarding whatsoever. They then both flopped in the lounge for a nap - Bandit falling alseep resting his head on Marleys hips and back legs as you can see. All in all we are very pleased with how things are progressing (despite him still using our house as a toilet). Providing he does not change over the next few weeks as he gets more used to us and more confident - we have decided we will adopt him when he is 12 months old - the rescue centre will not allow him to be adopted before he is neutered - and I refuse to neuter him under 12 months old because his growth plates are still active and I dont want to store up trouble for myself with hip/elbow displaysia.

    It has been a long time comming but we won and now its law, Service Animals that means Police dogs and horses, Search and Rescue dogs, and even Service/Assitance/Guide dogs now have recognition and protection of law, personaly I think they should have used the American modle that saw the dog as a full officer but it is a start https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-beds-bucks-herts-48510975

    An update for you all. This little girl had gone downhill again. She hadn't really eaten a great amount since the last post. Nibbles here and there. Back to the vet again. The vet said she had a kidney disease and needed building up and advised a specialist food, Royal Canin Renal, so we got her some high protein food and I ordered the specialist food that was recommended on line. She wolfed the food down but once again it was short lived. The specialist food turned up the following day and she ate again but struggled as it was getting stuck to her mouth. She went through a couple of days and then went downhill again. Back to the vets. This time managed to get to see my vet. Unfortunately the news is not good. Nishka has a rare form of bowel cancer which started in the anal glands and has been given 3 months to live. We are devastated as you could well imagine. She is back home and being treated like a queen. Anything she wants she gets. She has been given painkillers to make her more comfortable and now we just wait for her to let us know it's her time.

    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.

    Hey all! Simka here barking that me and mommy hope everyone has been well and surviving this cold, wintery weather! We have sure been busy in Maine. Mommy helped a friend get back on her feet after an abusive relationship the beginning of this year. Helped her find an apartment and let her stay with us for the meanwhile. Mommy has the biggest heart! Well, Grizz & Crew have been doing well too. No trips to the vet dude. We actually have not been over to visit them in a while, but I have been keeping up on their “shoe-nanigans”! And by the sounds of it, they have not eaten any sneakers for a long time and are craving some badly. It’s actually been a while for me too, so I am totally going bonkers over what happened today: Mommy went sneaker shopping with the girls and brought home these pair of delicious new reeboks!: Mmmmmmm, they look and smell sooooo yummy and I just can’t wait to chew on them! Mommy says they are her new summer sneakers so I have to wait! Well, I kept trying to sniff and lick them and finally mommy said if I didn’t stop, she would wear them over to Carol’s and let Grizz & Crew have their way with them. Yikes! I’m trying to behave but it sure is a looooong wait until summer Maybe you humans and huskies can convince mommy to let me have a little nibble now?????? (I would REALLY love to sink my toofers into those soft white leather toes and slobber them all up!) Thanks All and goodnight! Simka

    This might help to clear up some of the confusion about diets/kibble/cooked/raw - specifically with taurine in mind. https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/truth-grain-free-dog-foods-dcm/ It shows you things to look out for on the packets of dog food - and simple foods you can give to add good quality taurine into their diet. Its worth reading the whole article - but most of the info you guys need is in the second half.

    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)

    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

    did you say he is 6 weeks old and you have him already, pups should not leave mum until at least 8 weeks old when she starts to wean them. Diff colour eyes are fine lots of dog breeds have it with no problems and huskys are known for it. TBH people with huskys with 2 brown eyes will meet people Experts in thier own minds, who insist that they are NOT huskys as they should have blue eyes lol
