  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a problem maybe get a dog trainer to come to your home but don’t use one that uses the alpha theory because that’s an outdated load of rubbish Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners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
  16. As above, a behaviourist would be better than a dog trainer and I would also recommend Indi Dog for harnesses And yes totally normal for huskies to have selective hearing! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  17. A good quality kibble will give her all the nutrients she needs, I would just stick to 1 or the other kibble or raw meat Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  18. You need to pick a food and stick to it, changing his food up all the time will make him fussy. Have you tried to raw feed? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  19. Koda is like this he loves a cuddle and tends to sit on visitors like a cat! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  20. ....🤨 I’m not a fan of Hamilton at all, anyone but Hamilton please! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  21. Huskies are quite bitey when they play that’s perfectly normal! As above I wouldn’t pull him away when he’s digging, try and call him away but to be honest you’ve not got much chance of stopping it Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  22. That’s shocking! As soon as you can get her out and socialised with both people and dogs as soon as possible. If I had been with my mum and litter mates for 8 weeks then put in a totally new environment without them I think I would be pretty scared too! That’s without being prodded by a vet. Definitely get a new vet and at every opportunity take her to the vets even if it’s just to sit in the waiting room for 10 minutes. Astro was scared of the Vets too and I used to do this with him to help desensitise him Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  23. I think it’s common for the mother of puppies to eat their poop, the puppies see her doing it and copy. Mine grew out of it! Regarding the biting, my husky used to do that too. I found that having the hand further away from him at the end of the lead and the hand closest to him as low down the lead to his harness as possible helped, this stopped him from biting it and I had more control Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  24. I’m not sure about the hair loss but yes a grain free diet is best Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  25. It’s not natural for a dog to be picked up once he isn’t a small puppy being picked up by his mother any more, so there’s nothing to fix I’m afraid in terms of picking him up! He needs to get used to the stairs, is there any reason why he’s afraid of them? Have you always just carried him downstairs? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
