    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. Orijen are surprising, always thought they were a good brand Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  2. Very nice! You could fit another 2 huskies in there I reckon! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  3. I think he’s younger than they said he was! He does look husky but it’s easier to tell when they have grown up Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  4. Whether he was feeding from his mother or not, he still should have been with his mum and siblings, sounds like an awful breeder. You will have a lot of hard work on your hands now to teach him not to nip and he may well develop separation anxiety as well Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  5. The RSPCA wants prong collars to be banned and I agree, along with shock collars. Lazy people who want a quick fix for training, when actually although it ‘works’ it has an adverse affect on the dog and they don’t enjoy being walked anymore (as research suggests). Nothing that inflicts pain should be used for training Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  6. It could be due to her age, but there’s an endless list of things it could be so she does need to be checked by the vet Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  7. She might just have a slight turn in her eye but if she does that should correct itself Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  8. Try treat and clicker training. Take her most favourite treat out with you, try it with dogs at a distance first, get her to look at you when you have the treat and as soon as she does, click and reward. Every time she looks at you and not the other dog, click and reward. And then start doing it from shorter distances. It will take a while but you will get there eventually! A walking belt is great as your waist is your centre of gravity if you’re struggling with her strength, however it will give her more freedom to move about so youre best getting a lead attachment with a handle at the bottom that you can grab if necessary. If you have a friend with a calm dog that would be great to train her, get your friend to walk their dog a bit further down the road to you or at the other end of a field to start off with. You did the right thing socialising her, she’s just at the teenage stage now and needs to learn some manners! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  9. The mans legs are fake, he is walking in the box. Animals shouldn’t be used for entertainment like that, and roads are so dangerous that poor bird could have been run over Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  10. It looks fun! You could do the forest rollercoaster instead you control the speed for that yourself apparently. A bit closer to the ground! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app

  12. I know letting huskies off lead is a bit of a luxury as there’s not many safe places about to do it, so if anyone would like some extra off lead sessions, there’s Un-Leashed Dog Exercise Area (pre-booked slots, not far from Abakan/Flint, they can be found on Facebook). It’s a 60mx40m area £8 an hour for up to 3 dogs and £2 per dog after that. I’ve never been but they have 5 stars on Facebook Also Meadow View Doggy Day Care & Enclosed Field (also by Flint and also found on Facebook) the lady who owns that owns huskies and Mals so it’s definitely husky proof! That one is £10 per hour for up to 6 dogs A bit further out but there’s also Dogs Go Dog Park (on the Wirral and also on Facebook but they also have a website), they have prebookable 1 hour slots for private use of their secure 6 acre dog field. They can take up to 30 dogs and it varies in price up to £40 for 30 dogs. Heard it’s great there Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  13. This is really cruel ☹️ Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  14. Haha this would make some great husky camp footage [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  15. She might be bi-eyed? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
