  1. Yep v understandable. In my case my shop round the corner (0.8m from me) has everything! If you are desperate, I can ask if he will post a bag or two to you He has Natural Dark Gravy bones; small or large marrow bones; fluffy rabbit ears or dried nonfluff ones; various chews; natural dried chicken feet, or turkey feet; LoveJoys & Forthglade vac-packs, sealed. And lots more. I'm very fortunate to have free bones too, from my butcher in town. Just rang: Nigel - Animals Only: animal feed, tack, bedding leads, harnesses, toys etc etc from equine to dogs, cats, birds, fish
  2. First .. bless you for continue giving her a chance. She is still young. // Crate training: start from scratch, however teaching in games, changes the dynamics she is & has been facing. You need to build & create trust - and it has to be two way. Here's how I did all mine.. Crate Training - How & Why This is not cruel, but important for the safety of your dog, and folk who are dog shy, & esp for young children/not dog aware! Giving your dog a space of their own also gives them security. ● Ensure the crate is roomy enough: tall enough & long enough, to stand and s
  3. Marc, would you be able to update my Header pic with these please. A bluish, purple/pink & a greenish hue around Chester, Eski & Blu (these are their collar & harness colours. TaVeryMuch Maz 👌❤😖 xxxx
  4. Fab pictures Rob.. sooo looking forward to May 2020 Husky Camp!
  5. I have copied & pasted what I hope is helpful to HOUSE TRAINING your pup, Please copy this & save into your own notepad to share... THE HOUSEBREAKING BIBLE Umbilical Cord Training is a housebreaking method that’s pretty much what it sounds like – your dog is attached to you with a cord (his leash) throughout the day. [I suggest however, an hour a go & maybe twice or three times a day with good breaks of rest, playtime too] ... to start, especially with a youngster). It’s a supervision-based programme that requires vigilance but yields excellent result
  6. Biting, mouthing pups/dogs, including bad behaviour. & so many do this as they grow up.. Young pups mouth, and nibble. Mum teaches them not to, but too many leave too early to learn. So it's your responsibility. If you don't they can become more dominant, and aggressive, and hurt you, your visitors and young people. When they start (including ANY) undesirable behaviour, - no words - just clip on a lead to their collar & lead them away from the social gathering into a quiet room, and leave alone - three to five minutes. They hate rejection. When they're quiet, let them out. Observe. Rep
  7. Below- my response SAFETY FIRST IN Separating a Dog fight. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ You certainly sorted it.. I can now feed them together - on guard - in the kitchen, but in most cases it's convenient to just put him on the other side of a closed door! He is still guarding the bowl, sometimes, but I simply say - 'Break.. Blu.. Leave it' and he is getting to sit now, before I remove it and then go into Down whilst I take it into the kitchen (having already removed the others' bowls.) This way, no one's near a bowl Blu might decide to go to or go for them! Eventually I will have them
  8. New or same dog/s - but changes in behaviour - in your home: This worked for me when my Blu came.. @ 16/¹² : yes, neutral ground first x 2 or three, + baskerville muzzles to prevent injuries. Keep leads on to start, then decide who runs off lead, who stays on.. Then at home... [training starts from day one in sit, down, bed, wait, etc incl leave!' repeating instructions over & over until they are learned - & remember to ignore the wrong but immediately reward the good! It took over a week for Blu & Chester to 'start' to play- but usually muzzled. Blu was very pushy and jumping on C

  10. Hi Huskies do play rough. But, you need to insert some positive reward training..(ideally from day one). You will need to go back to basics, with crates.. here's what I did.. (below); and although yours is not a 'new' dog it's still young and (seems IMO) uneducated. New or same dog/s - but changes in behaviour - in your home: This worked for me when my Blu came.. @ 16/¹² : yes, neutral ground first x 2 or three, + baskerville muzzles to prevent injuries.

  12. Hi You have THE husky Joy's.... Copy & paste these sections into a 'notepad Memo' on your phone/laptop. As I have. Training is vital.. in husky owners it is sadly all left too late, or never started and kept up. Hence too many are given up - min. 10/day in the UK... god alone knows there are TOO many dogs left. Education is all - so please share. You could save the anguish of an owner and, it's pet - companion. #1. SA, Chewing, stress.. Just in case you think your furkid has this or will - it depends on you as the trainer Separation Anxiety, Che
  13. Sounds very like Andy has a point. When at home take note how often he goes outside. Is he *intact or ^neutered? If the former* get his prostate checked as this is quite common in older dogs; as is a higher risk of prostate cancer. If the latter^ then check frequency - he may have a bladder infection. Kefir with cranberry juice for a week 2tblspn K (start with one for three days with Cranberry J ½ cup incr to two of K. I give mine K daily and once a month add Cranberry J instead of water to their kibble & semi raw feed - for three days. Twice a week they get raw
  14. Tbh - using anyone else to cover your studies & research kinda takes the 'all my own work' out of it. Beware of plagiarism too; study & read up, but use your own words - as if telling another person how you interpret those conclusions, & summarise .. in brief. Find backup articles. Use only reliable medical recorded facts off acknowledged sites & science/medical based forums, but if in doubt research any you doubt yourself. See if you can find a vet near you by reputation, to maybe spend some time with the practice. You will have learnt now, how to reference I'
