  1. We kept an eye on it and minimised play where possible. At first it looked like it spread but then the next day it looked so much better so we decided to monitor. Now it seems to be fading back to normal. She still seems happy and does 6 miles a day without complaint, no scratching at it or general complaints so i think the worst part is over. Just gonna see what happens over the course of the next few days. If it reflares then im going vets but if it heals and she seems happy then ill just say it was an "unknown mark"
  2. Yeah, we have a second husky and the pair are constantly playing with each other, non agressive but super excitable and lots of jumping / grabbing. He doesn't have any similar problems.
  3. Soooooooooo, my little girl has had a teeny tiny bump begin to form on the end of her nose. She has had something similar before but it gradually faded into nothing. This new lump is the size of a small pea, and is accompanied by a patch of rough red skin. (circled in the picture) Im seriously hoping its not cancerous. Has anybody had any similar problems like this?
  4. Hey all, Probably a frequently asked question, but how far or for how long should a husky get walked daily? The reason i ask is that we recently moved house and, instead of doing one long walk per day, we now do 3 shorter walks for about 30-40 minutes each (between 1.5 and 3 miles depending on speed). The dogs seem to be enjoying it more with thr shorter walks and appear to exert more energy on each, so im wondering whether this is more beneficial for their health? They are both around 2 years old, so id assume they havent quite finished growing and I dont want to cause any health problems earlier on in life by doing too much or too little. Can someone please enlighten me so i can give them what they deserve?
  5. Honestly, as strange as it is, think about getting a second pup. We did and comfortably leave our two for a few hours a day. they dont appear to have any problems as they have each other to play with / for company. Sent from my D6603 using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah its just the one. The other one is perfect off lead, good recall, never wanders far from us. But we got him like that so maybe they put in lots of training time (not 100% sure, hes jusy a big softy) Sent from my D6603 using Tapatalk

  8. Oh, sorry, they get walked every day for at least 1 hour Sent from my D6603 using Tapatalk
  9. Hello all, Recently my female husky has gone through a phase of "dissappearing" whilst out on walks. It got to the point where we even bought GPS devices and put them on the collar so we can find her. Turns out she rather enjoyed car parks, crossing roads and chasing cats on peoples roofs. She has good days and bad days but nost recently she seems to go further away with each episode. We tried lead walking and recall training and, on lead, she doesn't bother trying, but i know she isn't getting the same exercise as she would off lead. I really dont want her to injure herself or be hit by a vehicle so does anyone have any tips? Sometimes her recall is brilliant, others she just doesn't care and wants to run!!!!

  10. We went through the exact same thing when our girl was 3-6 months old. Teeth were sharp as anything and she had a tendency to nip toes and fingers. We tried getting her into toys, balls and even frozen teething rings for children. She did eventually stop but did manage to draw blood on a few occasions. I presume its just an age thing (though i may be wrong) and as they are teething they just enjoy chewing pretty much anything. Maybe try squeaky toys, that tends to hold their attention a bit longer. Also, a friend recommended (and we tried) when they bite your hand, put your hand further into their mouth (not fingers down throat but far enough for very very slight discomfort) this way they associate chewing your hand with an unpleasent experience and may stop sooner. Im definitely no expert on this matter but thats what we tried with our girl and shes now 19 months. See what other people say too and just try a variety of things. Hope this helps.

  11. Thanks for the info. Yeah hes a big dog but wr are not sure if he is part malamute as we bought him when he was 9 months old and he was already big by then. PaulG if you could find that link it would be amazing. Thanks all for inputting though, will take it on board Sent from my D6603 using Tapatalk
  12. Hi all, This is just a small topic on husky kibble and whether they should be on it or not. Everyone i speak too seems to have a different opinion on what to feed their huskies. I used to have mine on james wellbeloved, but spoke to a few people who recommended canagans and have since switched to that. Expensive for what it is (currently paying £65 for 12 kg which and require 2 per month) but the dogs dont seem to mind it. They are however eating less and i am very slightly concerned but nothing major. I was wondering whether anyone has experienced similar issues with this brand and could explain why (is it better so they eat less or is it not good for them)??? Any information on husky feeding would be massively helpful. My lil boy is 19 months and weighs 35kg My lil girl is 19 months and weighs 19.2kg Both look healthy and fine but i want to give them the best. Both get salmon oil and coconut oil regularly.

  13. Will get her booked in as soon as i can then. Thanks for taking the time to comment
  14. We haven't taken her yet. The wounds were scabbed previously but they appear to have fallen off / reopened so we were unsure whether they are healing or getting worse. The small bump on the nose is the stranger one, its almost like wart (thats the only thing i can describe it as) but not pink or losing fur.
  15. Hello all, not been on in a while since we first got our little puppy over a year ago. Since then we decided to get another (it was always going to happen, picture added) unfortunately my little girl has started developing some scabbing and lumps on her face, nothing massive or obviously infected but causing some concern. The areas are her left eye, left ear and a small raised lump on her nose (none are painful to touch or pussing) she does play rough with other huskies and very rarely gets hurt. Can anyone recommend whether she needs any form of treatment or if they will heal over time. The pictures make the wounds look worse than they are.
