  1. Well, this is getting shared to the FB page Awesome pics
  2. Besides huskies, what other animals do you have? Currently in our house, other than Kimba, Kaiser, and Koda, we also have a bearded dragon and a corn snake. We rescued the bearded dragon, and the corn snake I kinda ended up with whilst drunk (No, really! lol)

    Alexa will then pop up with "I don't understand that!" in a fit of jealousy Oh, actually thats something else that we have. This is actually quite cheap to do these days with a wireless IP camera. I think ours cost about £30

    I always look at the security of these things and think to myself, ok so they might be 'listening to me' or 'someone might hack it', but then think 'And do what?'. Sure they can advertise crap to me, but I spend my life on the internet, that already happens. Sure they could sell my data, but then anyone who thinks their data isnt being sold around the world already simply doesnt know anything about technology. As far hacking, what are they going to do? Turn off my light? I'm more bothered about ensuring there is a decent lock on my door than someone turning off a light in my house.
  5. See I've always thought "What is wrong with the doctor being male?". There were a lot of things about asking why it was never a women, never black etc, and I dont see the logic. So the doctor can regenerate. That doesnt mean that it cant be "This timelord is a man" lol
  6. OK, so thats old news. But anyone else watch the new Doctor Who over the weekend? If so, what you think of the new doctor? Format of the program seems to have changed a bit, which is probably not a bad thing. I recon she might actually be quite good once you get used to her.

    You have a harmony remote. That does
  8. Been a while since I posted anything up in here, so thought I would see how many people are getting into the whole home automation thing. With things coming out with the echo, hive, nest, hue etc, more and more people are automating things. For me, I've been automating quite a few things lately. Stopped doing it so much as it could quickly cost a fortune and money going on other things, but eventually I will be doing the whole house. Amazon echo in livingroom, office, diningroom, kitchen, bedroom Smart light switches in livingroom, office, bedroom (and one for the diningroom once I get it put in) Smart socket in livingroom for lamps Hive bulb in bathroom and spare bedroom Hue bulb in Matthews bedroom Hive heating thermostat control Essentially means that I can control at least the main lights I use, the heating, and lamp by voice control or on my mobile app. I am planning on automating some of the TV stuff, as I already have the gear here to do it. Just havent got around to playing with it as of yet.
  9. Nope. Last time you looked on the facebook group it did, not the page

  14. Sorry for your loss, but welcome back!
  15. First of all, welcome to husky owners Reality is, every dog will be different. We have 3, and have had similar kinds of issues in the past. Depending on what you are trying to teach, separating them to do so may not always be the best thing. Simply as you want them to learn whilst around the others, and not to only listen when there are not others around. I gotta say though, she is 10 week old. She is gonna play, and going to want to continue to play. Huskies will be like that in general, and it can indeed be a PITA when training and you have more than one. The only advise I can really give is to just persist with it. You will get there, it will just likely take more time as you have 2. Examples with ours who are now older Kimba - He will do things on command, as and when he feels like it. He can go from super obedient to completely deaf in under 10 seconds flat, depending on his mood. He is 10 yrs o;d now and things he is 10 weeks old. Kaiser - He is obedient always. We let ours on the settee, and to give you an example, I can ask him to move to the other side of the settee to I can sit down, and he will. I don't even need to make a sound most of the time. I just walk in and point at the other side, and he moves. Koda - He is quite well trained, but will do things when he wants to. Its almost impossible to train him with food. He is just a PITA with it. He will steal treats from the others. He lets himself out of his crate, and we had to get a CCTV camera to even figure out how he was doing it (the crate was still locked after he left it, which is where the confusion was from). So you can see just from that, they are all different. Huskies tend to be very personality based, and very intelligent. They will learn, but when they don't want to do something, they won't. Hence why they shouldn't be offlead for example.
  16. Sounds like primarily good news then
