  1. 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 2020 will run from Friday 15th-22th 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

     

    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

  2. These few different people saying that he is not a husky. I'm assuming they all have DNA tests? Some huskies look different to others. I've seen some with quite long fur, just as an example, who have full papers for them.

    Finally got round to phoning to book my pitch number. Was someone else on 108, but they chucked them off for me. Happy Days.

    Good job I phoned as I was booked Friday to Friday, would have been very disappointed on arrival.

    Camp is Friday to Friday. Presuming you are there early again then?

  4. 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.

    I thought the whiteboard with a list of options worked really well. Had distances, times etc. (whether there is a pub there). Means for the regular excursions, we can swap about based on weather.

    But obviously some events need to be fixed / prioritized / pre-booked. Barrys BBQ, Group Dinner (out), Group Dinner (camp), Off-lead

    I really like that place we went that was to the East, wasn't Loggerheads, but that direction. Had a really good circular walk that was mobility scooter friendly, had a river running through it with a good 'beach'. Someone must know where I am talking about.

    Sarah is already on it with the walks, in the same way as last time. So will just put a load on a whiteboard. She has come new ones on there too :)

  8. Persistence. In all honesty thats the only thing you need in order for them to get into it. Sooner or later it will become their space, but the more you change all the time, the longer you will make it for yourself. You need to have it set up the way you will have it set up all the time. The reason is simple, if you leave the light on then thats fine, but then once they are used to the crate are you going to switch it off? If so, you're likely starting again. Smells are a  good thing, as eventually it will be replaced by their own smell anyway, then it will become their space. Covering is fine, as long as you are going to do so all the time from then on. But most of all, its persistence. It's a pain in the backside we've all been through at one point or another, but it will calm eventually.
