  1. lets see any addvice...... Concrete your garden the husky side makes them like digging and they could pop up into next doors or futher aways garden there is a youtube video of a husky hole that has room enough for two huskys to go into turn around and pass each other. Huskys can climb fences. Be ready to find fur balls every where, I find clumps of fur in my oven. They have a strong prey drive so a lunge and jump at a blown leaf can be common Or getting dragged to one side after a squrrel that just ran up a tree will also happen a lot you could invest in Bungy lead and Walking Belt as a memmber of this site you can get a discount from Indi Dog and you will have to hope your neighbours are ok with husky singing at all hours
  2. first thing get dog to vets next check leaves in case its toxic and check around leaves for rat bait wrapper or something else but most important get the dog to the vets
  3. LOL so what was his reply when you asked him..... as so far 2 other males have said they can be an issue lol
  4. i have always said if you put a doctor and a vet in the same room and ask them does desexing cause health problems is fun when you get to medical people having an argument I have seen a Doctor call a vet dumb moron that knows nothing about Biology and should ask for thier money back from the place they studied at. it is fact desexing cuases many health issues but vets completely ignore these issues and instead say oh they will feel better be healthier. some one i know was told that thier 8 week old playfull puppy was being Hormonal and Agressive and needed to be desexed as fast as possable to stop it being dangerous. after talking to me my freind changed vets
  5. ok years ago i used to get that purple spray on my hands all the time working with sheep and cows, the only thing we found that got rid of it by accident was Brut 33 the aftershave seemed to work best but being a dye it on teh fur, it will be hard to get off but a few dabs with a soaked cotten ball should get a lot off we tried everything the green slimey swarfega soap for engineers the pink one with micro beads all sorts of bar and liquid soap and washing up liquids but the brut 33 seemed to loosen the stuff up and then the soap after seemed to work a bit so a fewsplashes of brut got most off
  6. my belts from Sid too, the front hitch type so on a loose lead is right in the primary target zone lol
  7. lol only upgrade i would recomend for us guys is swapping out the heavy steel Karabiner for a lightweight Alloy one as the steel one is eye watering if it hits us guys in the crotch area other than that i love my new belt i just got.
  8. might want to ask Sid to swap to lightweight for us guys I was looking at amazon but i have seen some of those so called climbing quality ones break, thanks to them being cheap chinese knockoffs but now i have a make/type/style i can look around better in climbing stores when i find one local to me they all seem to by in north wales london or the costwold
  9. lol guess you had same issue i had with the steel ones my husky was off to the side ona loose lead shook and whiped the lead around and i got slapped and found it to be eye watering
  10. Ok i just got my new Indi Dog walking belt but i have descovered a small problem..... The heavy Karabiner suplied was not made for men Husky on a loose lead shook and jumped and oh boy does it hurt when the heavy weight slaps you in the crotch area...... So any rock climbers out there able to recommend a light weight alloy Karabiner and good online store to buy it from as most do not say how heavy the hook is just how much weight it can take before it breaks.
  11. sounds like she is glad your home and wants attention next time get her to sit and rub her ears and huve a cuddle to say hello but make sure she is sitting as jumping on people is not nice
  12. know the breed I have a Malinois Lakenois cross
  13. another trick to help is get a meat dish add some water and a little washing soap the stand a canlde on the dish any fleas left in teh room will move to the candle but the water with soap will drown them (must have the soap) and as said the house must be fumigated with an anti flea spray. you need one that will kill adult flea, Larva and Eggs, and it may take a few cans to treat the whole house as you need to spray everything can help if you give a good vacum around first but use a bag hoover and seal each bag in a plastic bag that does not have holes in or the buggers will escape. do carpets sofa etc move sofa tables etc and do under then and around the edge of the rooms even under your bed and both sides of teh matress then sray the house or see if you can get one of the industrial strength bug bomb things that will gas the whole house in one go (set off, run, come back few hours later open windows wait couple hours then put down fresh water
  14. The issue with dogs is around the owner all dogs are sweet and innocent but time and time again dogs not just huskies have escaped and gone on a rampage all dog breeds have the capacity to be natrual born killers. all dogs need to be watched and looked after with due care those breeds known to have high prey drive more so too many owners are complacent with thier dogs that result in live stock being killed and injured every year. They say dogs are like 3 to 5 year old children would you leave a child of that age un watched in a kitchen full of pans cooking on the stove and sharp knives or leave them in a workshop with saw and chissles No you would not. but people do that with dogs all the time and its the poor farmers and thier livestock that pay the price
  15. Huskys are an Indipendant type, you can train them basic stuff but when they get to about 18 months 2 years old the true husky side takes over and most training will go out the window They respond best to food and you must work on recall every day, I am not saying husky can not be trained just they take a lot of work and will some days react to a command with ..... what is in it for me if i do it its like a lot of huskys will just look at you with a if you wanted the ball why did you throw it away look they will never be in the obediance class it dog shows but they can learn to do some things and will mostly do it if you have a pocket full of treats but just expect them to some days ignore everything you ask My personal recomendation for treats is small slivers of hot dog, you can cut one up into 20/30 slices and they tend to find them very tasty
  16. if you look online you can buy Milatary bandages that have a dressing pad attached use one and wrap the long bandage it comes with around him, you can then use VetWrap that only sticks to its self
  17. TBH most vets do not seem to learn how to do a bandage on anything apart from a Leg, over the years i have learned to bandage all sorts of joints and other body parts. as to the honey it is probably cheaper buying it that way as teh vets would add a large markup on the price, things you can buy for a couple quid from your high street chemists Bandages Gauze wound dressings etc they will charge 10 pounds for or more, long ago one of my dogs needed eye drops, the vets charged me nearly 40 for a med i could get from boots for about 7.50 over the counter was exactly the same stuff too (one of my peeves about vets is teh HUGE mark up they put on things, like dressings, everything they use is what you can get on teh high street at a fraction of the cost) Also teh BIG vet schools Glasgow (probably the best) London etc are cheap to use as they will ask if you mind your animal being used as a teach aid so they can show students how to do stuff you just have to get to them
  18. it is a long way to go, but you could ask for a referal to the Glasgow or London Vet hospital your vets should be able to get you booked in with a phone call then its just you getting him to them
  19. lol if your husky is on a Long lead its not off lead..... just google Robinsons they sell horse stuff and you want a Lunge line
  20. Just go into Google and use any one of the following terms in the search. Husky kills Husky kills sheep Husky kills livestock Every year people let off thier husky and it ends badly for the dog and some poor farmers live stock In the UK now farmers are able to shoot the dog or have it put to sleep by police, they also now sue for damages and loss of income from lost live stock so you bill could end up costing 70 or 80 thousand plus farmers legal costs Husky's have a high prey drive, every time some one lets one off and it ends badly it puts out a bad image for the breed its ok to let a husky off in a fenced area but in open woodland or farm feilds don't simple rule never let a husky off lead , do not do it, nope, never, never ever just don't do it
  21. Been delt with ], i found a cell number on another thread here, called and they resent the invoice that had the link this time with luck new belt should be in the post next week lol got it sorted and thanks
  22. As i said i placed an order last week for a walking belt and as i do not have PayPal i used the credit card option and was told i would get a link to make payment I have not gotten that link yet checked email and everything
  23. have you tried a chicken and rice/noodle soup, yes soup put it in a liquidizer so no lumps and he might drink his dinner (you may have to add chicken stock if its too thick to thin it out)
