    I live in North Wales with my other half and 2 crazy huskies Astro and Koda!
    I do a lot of charity events such as Tough Mudder and I have a degree in Sports Science.
    When I first left school I was an apprentice mechanic for Vauxhall! I do still have an interest in cars and I especially like old Fords such as Mustangs. I wanted to be a mechanic for the Vauxhall BTCC team!
    I am quite good at drawing and when I was 10 I came 3rd in a national competition to design a poster about caring for a dog for NCDL (now called Dogs Trust).
    I'm also a 1st Dan Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do and I once trained with Olympic gold medalist Jade Jones before she stopped doing TAGB Tae Kwon Do
    I also enjoy DIY around the house, volunteering at my local animal rescue, watching rugby league and football (Liverpool supporter!), watching BTCC and the TT, and going on days out to interesting places such as National Trust buildings

  1. I could be wrong but I don’t think a dog can have too much water, they must have access to water at all times. He is probably too hot, what are you feeding him? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  2. If you keep trying different food it will encourage her to be fussy, stick to one she won’t starve herself. Don’t keep her food down for more than an hour, if she doesn’t eat it put it in the bin. She will soon learn! I do think raw is the best bet, I would feed my dog raw if I had a big freezer Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  3. As above with the walking, it can affect their joints if you walk them too much as they are growing. Sure when he is fully grown you can take him out as much as you like! That’s probably why you’re having problems with the lead. Crate training does take time, he will get there eventually. Same with potty training, don’t use puppy pads as they just teach him it’s ok to go in the house! Keep taking him out at regular intervals and give lots of praise when he goes outside. Huskies never get tired! You can take them out for hours and they will still keep going! Mental stimulation is important, at his age that might tire him out a little bit. Try food toys where he has to work out how to get the food out, or hide treats and toys around the house Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  4. I don’t think she will, don’t get your hopes up! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  5. My boys didn’t do it for very long! If it’s a problem maybe get a dog trainer to come to your home but don’t use one that uses the alpha theory because that’s an outdated load of rubbish Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  6. Hi Amanda you probably already know but the biting is because she was taken from her mum and litter mates too early so she hasn’t learnt that biting is wrong Try doing positive reinforcement so when she isn’t biting give her lots of praise, you could try a clicker and treat. And I know it’s hard but when she’s biting just ignore her and turn your back on her. It will take time but she will learn that she only gets attention when she’s being nice! Don’t shout or raise your voice at her Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  7. Hi I’m sorry but that’s a typical husky you’ve got there! Huskies tend to come to you on their own accord, and they aren’t very cuddly dogs I’m afraid. They like to have their own space Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  8. If that’s the case you can vote online or by post if you’re not going to be home at the time. I’m sure politics will be the last thing on peoples minds! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  9. Hope this works! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  10. For those of you on Facebook, please can you like a photo of Koda! He’s in a competition on Dog Fests page. You can find his photo in the team North photo folder Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  11. I needz attentionz This is a few days before I had my baby When you’re not allowed on the sofa [emoji23] What I wake up to most mornings! [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  12. My auntie is a herbalist! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  13. Just to let you know today I was told lots of U.K. pet foods are having a price increase in April according to my local pet shop! Canagan is going up by £5 a bag!! Times like this I wish I had room for a freezer for raw [emoji30] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  14. I do embroidery and painting, also a bit obsessed with decorating my house (my bedroom gets redecorated once a year!) Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  15. I think me and Alpha are spirit brother and sister [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
