  4. My boy used to growl when held or hugged from I got him at 9 weeks, he's never been aggressive though, but still today at 2 and a half years old he'll growl most of the times when you hug him or hold on to him tightly...he jyst does not like it. My girl loves it though! I'd say something probably happened at the breeder before you got him...sounds very sketchy to me! Maybe try clicker training with him if you're familiar how to and start with just touching him and giving a treat if he does not growl. Then gradually work your way up to just picking him up for second or too... Sent from my ALE-
  5. Been using Bravecto for more than 2 years and it works very well for all my dogs Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  6. Welcome! My boy Tsunami has anxiety issues as well, I've been working & training non stop for the past year and he's gotten so much better that he now has playdates at the dog park with a bunch of other doggies! Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  7. Looking very nice on Cai! Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  8. I've used Bravecto for more than 2 years with no issues. Here it is only FrontlinePlus that does ticks, the normal Frontline is only for fleas@Robke Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  9. Agreed that it doesn't quite look Agouti on this photo, but remember their markings and colours change a lot while growing up ;-) Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  10. Thanks Andy! And yes, its awesome to have the new dog park so closeby, the dogs surely enjoy it there! Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  11. I've seen 'in training' and 'do not pet' vests being sold online and also leashes with it printed on, but to be honest most people just ignore them or whatever you tell them and just go ahead and pet the dog! So start small, with only few people around, maybe family or friends you can explain to before and get her not to mouth them before going huge with hundreds of people. Also, as you mentioned being consistent is the biggest factor ;-) Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  12. I've been using it for 2 years now and no issues, just make sure to give it every 3 months and the right dosage for his weight and it should keep the ticks and fleas away! Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  13. A lot of Huskies are like that, they're not dominating or he could be unsure of himself in that situation and just let the other dogs get their way. When my boys anxiety was really bad at the start he used to avoid other dogs (strange dogs, not my other dogs) he'd let them get away with everything and hump him without doing anything, but now after more than a year of training and making progress with his anxiety he's starting to stand up for himself and interact with other dogs when at the park. He'll even growl or push another dog away if they get too much for him (playfully, not aggressive!)
  14. Congrats Armani & Skyla! Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  15. I use that for both of mine and they eat it straight from the box! Unless your dog was in very close contact with another dog that was full of ticks, I highly doubt that they would pick it up from the groomers... better safe to check them regularly for ticks and fleas and use something to prevent it in the future.

  16. Good advice from all so far, only thing I can add is try a tug rope or something similar and whenever she starts to get mouthy just redirect her attention to that, but make sure you get a large rope/toy otherwise your hands will still get bitten, I used a rope with Tsunami when he was teething and he learnt to take out his frustrations on it very quickly and leave human hands alone! Maybe also teach her to give paw and when strangers want to pet her rather suggest they 'shake' her paw and you can give her a treat if she does that without mouthing...

  17. I felt that way with Tsunami...we'd make progress and then the next day he was back to being to scared to go pee outside! But just hang in there, eventually it does get better! Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  18. Is he only reactive while on leash, or if he's off leash too? Sounds like you're already making progress with what you're doing! Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  19. Holding thumbs its not too serious! Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
  20. Is Luka the purebred Husky or the mixed one? (I think I read somewhere about your one not being 100% Husky, but forgive me if I got you confused with someone else!) I have a Border Collie that is very much reactive to anything that moves or makes a sound![emoji23] I walk him in a normal harness but put a head halti on and have a rope attached to that, so that when he starts his barking and lunging the rope of the head halti pulls and he doesn't like that...it seems to help a lot, so hoping it will get him out of that mindset and he'll later forget to do it altogether!

  21. Never heard of her, I do like to watch some Cesar Milan (and a few others as well) but I only use what I know won't damage my dogs physically or mentally... Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app Back to your original issue, the white Husky that's part of our playdates group only exibits dominating behaviour towards black dogs. He'll play and hump a female now and again, but he 'sizes up' every black male dog he meets. His owner said he must have had a bad experience with a black dog somewhere... With Tsunami it took a few months to figure out what triggered his anxiety attacks.
  22. I would say she either got hurt somewhere (maybe even before you got her) or she has a genetic condition that makes her bones break easily, 3 fractures are a lot for a young puppy. And I've never heard of all puppies having fractures... When my boy injured his leg as a puppy the Vet suggested giving chewing toys like tracheas (not sure of the spelling) it contains chondrion that helps to build up and heal bones.

  23. Beautiful pictures! So sorry to hear about your loss. Sent from my ALE-L21 using Husky Owners mobile app
