    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. Astro got out of his julius k9 once too, luckily my boyfriend managed to catch him before he realised what had happened! We use Houdini ultra harnesses by Indi Dog now that they can’t back out of Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  2. I was told that if you crashed into someone you would would need to be covered by public liability insurance, or if for example you came across horse riders and there was an accident involving them. I didn’t end up getting a scooter so I didn’t look into it any more than that. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app

  4. It’s true about insurance, I met someone from Cold Feet racing team at Dog Fest a couple of years ago and they were telling me that you do need insurance in the UK Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners If it helps they pointed me in the direction of Siberian Husky Club of Great Britain for advice about insurance Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  5. Sorry to hear this has happened. Regarding your question about dogs not liking huskies, my cousins staffy doesn’t like huskies either, he is a rescue so she doesn’t know his full history but he really doesn’t like them Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  6. Aww thank you, sorry to hear about the problems you are having [emoji17] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  7. If you are concerned I would take her to the vet. It could be just a fur ball, it could be an illness or it could be something she had eaten and is trying to bring back up Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  8. Oh no how long ago did it happen? It could be shock, or maybe he’s just a bit bruised? If it continues maybe try dog acupuncture or hydro therapy Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  9. Aww congratulations! I did see you enquire about a dog on a husky rescue page on instagram, hope it all works out for you [emoji4] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app Thanks Nix, he’s caught a rat in our back garden before now although it did survive as he dropped it and it had gone when I went back out to rescue it! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app Thank you so much xxx Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  10. If anyone was able to take him in I would definitely consider it, I just want him to go to a good home with no children with someone who is home most of the day. I’m not selling him or letting him go to a rescue with kennels Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  11. Hi all unfortunately I’ve had to make the difficult decision to rehome Astro. He’s just not happy, I’ve been really upset but I know it’s the right decision for him. it’s not just the guarding there’s a few issues that have always been there and it’s just all getting worse. He’s had a behaviour check with a husky rescue and I believe they are now looking for a foster home for him. I never thought I would be one of those people to give up a dog [emoji17] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  12. One of my huskies is 2 years old and he has never done a wee or poo on a walk! It’s nothing to worry about Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  13. Haha! If only the cone of shame was as nice as this Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  14. Hi there I don’t agree with the alpha theory at all and neither does the dog behaviourist I use. If she likes sitting on the chair let her continue Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
