  1. PTSD sucks i currently have a Malinos/Lakenois (2 of the Belgian shepherds in one) as my service assitance dog and they do help make our lives so much better My husky did his best as one but he was too old to do the training the UK is tougher in what dogs can and can not be helpers. But welcome to the group
  2. Frontline used to be good but a few years ago they changed it so you could buy it over the counter so it is lower strength, look into Advantage spot on made by Bayer you want to get a perscrition strength flea treatment if you do get flea's you will need to treat the dog and the house. drops on the dog and a spray that does the house might even find a bug bomb thing that does fleas in the usa. As to scent marking nope nothing you can do to stop that, unless he is doing it in the house then you need to go back to basics training wise so he knows pee outside, my husky scent marks we went on holiday and he tried to scent mark both sides of teh highstreet in one pass when we came home a month later
  3. so you are new to huskys you will have a puppy that will sit roll over and do most things you train them to do UNTILL they hit 18 months of age then all training will go out the window The husky genes will kink in and you will have a stubborn back talking furry monster that makes your life a living hell , you want to go for a walk husky will shout yell grumble untill it gives in on the way home husky will shout yell howl and have every one looking at you thinbking your being mean becuase now husky wants to stay out. that exspenive toy you just brought home and gave gave to the husky, will be ripped to shreds and spread over the living room in the time it took you to make a coffee. Now you have a husky you will have fur in every thing you cook eat drink clothing will have to be purchased so fur does not show. guests will start learning to dress down when they visit twice a year your vacuum will choke on enough fur to make 2 more dogs when its snowing husky will refuse to come inside neighbours will report you for being cruel even though you stand at the door witha bag of tasty treats begging them to come in so people do not think your mean whilst the husky is in the cute cuddely fluff ball stage a 10 min walk will take an hour as every stops to make a fuss of them. Later you will here yikes its a wolf, no its noy a husky they have blue eyes, who is taking who for a walk, you need to get a sledge, Your neighbours will get used to the awooo's at all hours You will get used to having the biggest pain in the butt and most amusing ball of fluff in your life and you will at times wonder what you will do without them and five mins later wish you never got them a husky is not an easy dog you can not even really call them a dog as you got a HUSKY they are unlike any other breed. they will drive you insane one moment, make you laugh until you nearl wet yourself the next and be a part of your family
  4. Yes he needs to see a vet also needs a cone on his head to stop him bothering the cuts, vet will suply the cone
  5. if you are getting her spayed just tell him she had a Pyorometra and had to spayed to save her life end of him calling you
  6. yep i wish they started billing the film and tv studios for the fads thay make in dog owning 101 dalmations , snow dogs, Due South GOT John Wick (with the malinois) Max and lots of other films have shown dogs in some peope see these wonderfully PROFESSIONALY trained dogs and think i want one of those, then go out and buy a Malinois 6 months later dump it cus it ate the kitchen started growling at the family crapped or pee'ed on the carpets ate the sofa etc etc as it was not like the dog on the tv at least some of the GoT people have said on twitter and other places DO not get a dog just because they look cute on the show. But they need to do more than they do
  7. I by my food from Happy hounds they are on facebook (lol just unpacked an order today) they make 10 10 8 ratio mixes beef, beef tripe, beef lamb, chicken, chicken tripe, tripe, liver etc all mixed, I also buy bags of sprats liver heart chunks, turkey necks and lamb ribs some times whole rabbits, I swap and change food day by day so weeks menu might be something like this Monday, Beef mix morning Tripe mix with couple lumps of liver added evening Tuesday Turkneck morning evening lamb mix raw egg (just drop the egg in a jug mash up shell into small bits tip onto food) squirt of codliver oil Wednesday morn chicken and beef. evening liver mix some cheap frozen veggies Thursday Lamb ribs (half a rib cage) spratts . evening Beef with some pasta (i buy cheap 3 kg bag from sainsburys, put pasta in a pot pour on boiling water leave to cool on back of stove) so they get a cup full each Friday chicken with sqiurt of salmon oil evening half a rabbit saturday semi thawed frozen fish mackeral evening beef and lamb sunday skip a morning meal ( every so often i let them miss a meal) evening beef with egg and chunk of extra offal heart liver tripe kidney what ever i have in freezer My mix meet comes in 500 gram packs and i buy big bags of turkey necks ribbs and other stuff that when i unpack i split into bags so i have daily ration for the 3 dog in the extra chunks, ribs necks get split into single item packs. and the fish and spratts seem to stay loose in the bags so i just pull out one or a hand full as needed there are lots of raw food places in the uk BUT make sure to check if they sell pre mixed ratio food otherwise you will have to mix it yourself which can be harder as you need to add bone and organ content too much liver which is rich can give dogs teh runs so it takes a bit of carful balancing to mix yourself I order a months worth of food at a time and have a dog food freezer unless its winter when i boost order a little just in case of snow etc so i can last longer if needed between orders https://www.facebook.com/pg/happyhoundswales2014/about/?ref=page_internal
  8. on a side note how regular has he been wormed, what is the food you are feeding as you need a good puppy food for large dogs Huskys can have funny tummys like shepherds so you may have to swap and change foods until you find a kibble food he is ok with. but from personal choice i will keep feeding my dogs raw as after i made the swap i noticed. a lot of changes Better coats, no fussy feeding issues. less poop to pick up (I swear that between raw and kibble is a 75% rule. in raw 75% is digested and never seen again in kibble 75% comes back out) less farts and not as stinky. same for the poop less stinky and a lot less to pick up. teeth stay cleaner so less tooth brushing. Also i did some research and found out that a lot of vets are NOT taught about diet and what they do learn comes from books and pamphlets printed by the dog food makers if you have netflix look at the program Pet fooled you will be shocked with what it shows about the pet food industry my biggest shock was that pet dogs cats rabbits etc put to sleep at the vet can and do end up being put back into pet food which explains how the drugs used to put animals down were being found in pet food that is just the tip of the iceberg in other cases so called human quality food ingreadiants were actulay cheap products from china that were contaminated for toxic materials and unfit to be eaten by humans and these were being used to make dog food as the laws regarding quality in human food are very strict not so for pet food. You just have to look at the toxic waste that is used to make rawhide dog chews is legal tpo sell as pet food. or the cooked ham bones that are sold vacum packed as dog bones in stores https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5700496/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pet_Fooled
  9. raw bones do not splinter the way coocked bones do and they are digested easy, only thing i would recomend is if you are feeding wings is to snip off the tips of the wings with scissors as the wing bone is really shar and pointed like a needle and could hurt if they swallow the tip of the wing whole. there are lots of guides to feeding BARF diet around as you have a pup you will need to work out a diet that is 20% Bone 10% Organ (offal) 70% muscle meat when about a year old swap to 10 10 80 ratio My Malionois was fed raw from the day he was weaned and is just over a year old now so no risk afte all its noy like a wolf goes out and buys a sack of puppy kibble for the pups video_2018-08-01_07-49-25.mp4
  10. take both to the vet to be sure. puppy might have an infection and will have worms (all pups need worming) should have been given a dose when you picked them up then depending on wormer every 2 or more likly 4 weeks until about 6 months age. Pups can have worms badly tpo the point when they poop the day after the dose it comes out like a handfull of spagetti and you may even need to use a poop bag to help pull them out very gently. you also need to make sure they pup doesnt turn around and eat them so that is a good reason to see the vet in itself to pick up a suply of worm tablets for the dogs
  11. i just use a £39.99 econo own brand hoover from Argos works great for dog fur and is now 5 years old and still running on its first belt only down side is its bagless so you get a face full of dust ever time you empty it but for price life etc its been a great cheap investment, as i know people who have paid hundreds for dysons and other top brands and said they were rubbish at dealing with fur etc
  12. did you say he is 6 weeks old and you have him already, pups should not leave mum until at least 8 weeks old when she starts to wean them. Diff colour eyes are fine lots of dog breeds have it with no problems and huskys are known for it. TBH people with huskys with 2 brown eyes will meet people Experts in thier own minds, who insist that they are NOT huskys as they should have blue eyes lol
  13. Jan-Michael Vincent, best known for playing daredevil pilot Stringfellow Hawke in 1980s TV series Airwolf, has died at the age of 74, it has emerged. The Denver-born actor also appeared with Charles Bronson in The Mechanic, with Burt Reynolds in Hooper and in seminal surfing film Big Wednesday. He was nominated for a Golden Globe for 1971 film Going Home and again in 1984 for miniseries The Winds of War. Vincent died on 10 February, according to his death certificate. The document states he was an inpatient at a hospital in North Carolina and is survived by his third wife, Patricia Ann Christ. Vincent's career waned after his Airwolf heyday and he retired from acting in 2009. In 2012 a leg infection required him to have the lower half of his right leg amputated.
  14. and after the Thaw
  15. Should i point out that i am only half welsh do not speak wales live in the town in Pontypridd and do not have any problems but no where in wales would tollerate people walking up and shooting a dog on a lead, this would be a criminal attack and no one would allow it to happen and if it did it would be all over the news
  16. if that is true the farmer could be charged with multiple charges and face long jail time , unless the dog is off the lead running around its illegal to shoot them. Charges that coule be brought, Assault with a dangerous weapon, Criminal damage (law sucks as it see's dogs as property) attempted murder etc etc Also as far as i know Huskys are ruled out as helper dogs cus they are such indipendant buggers. could be an un recognised ES dog but i doubt any of the service dog groups that provide certification booklets would give it one, All real dogs get a book like a passport that is the document your supposed to carry if they show you a printed card they are fake and can be got off ebay for about 15 quid, but can lead to user being sued for costs if teh store has a problem and face criminal charges if the fake service dog attacks or disrupts a real service dog doing its job I have a real service dog and it really agrivates me when i meet a dog that is a fake
  17. I have a Husky/Malamute cross, White German Shepherd and a Malinois/Lakenois Cross all are fed a Barf raw Diet the Mali pup was started on raw food when he was weaned and they all do fine I Buy Lamb Ribs (half a rib cage) Turkey Necks, Sprats (small fish about 5 inches long) Mackeral (nice oily fish). Mixed minced raw food at 80% Muscle meat 10% Bone, 10% Organ (offal) meat I also add every few days Cod Liver or Salmon Oil, Raw Eggs, Pasta and mixed Veg. so the menu would be kind of like this Monday Beef raw egg Sprats Tuesday Chicken and Tripe (mix) pasta squirt of one of the oils say Cod Wednesday Lamb and Beef veg Thursday Lamb ribs Chicken and a Mackeral Friday Beef and chicken salmon Pasta Saturday Turkey neck Beef Sunday Liver and beef and veg Some people i know say my dogs eat better than they do
  18. think that the 2500 huskys might be a miss print last time i was in scotland at one of the sled races it was more like 200 max
  19. dig the fingers into the coat if you can feel the lkast 3 ribs they are fine if not over weight if you can feel more under My boy is on a diet right now cus i went to put his harness on last week and it only just fitted gave him a poke and was like woah your way over weight when did that happen
  20. Gather round huskys and humans and listen to a Christmas Carol
  21. The in the last couple weeks I have come to the site picked a topic to view and that page has opened then a few seconds later it has been diverted to Some scam site telling me i have won a random fake prize. Old scam that has been around for years so other than closing the page I have not been suckered Has some malicous code gotten into the site or has a scammer linked in some how to randomly capture a browser some how I would hate to see some one click this page as its the old pay us money sign up for this site scam spam stuff so far it seems to happen once a day and its a pain next time i will take a photo with my phone. I am using the latest version of firefox as i hate chrome (find it slow and laggy) and Ms Edge
  22. I would not blame the fish, remember that huskys etc for many years lived on a fish diet (rivers were full of them and it was easy to catch and dry/smoke) I personaly feed raw food, monday it might be chicken tuesday beef wednesday tripe, thursday chicken and beef My supplier does full range of plain meats and mixes, so every day they get something different, added to the meals can be lumps of liver heart tripe even frozen fish. along with every couple days a squirt of cod or salmon oil along with raw eggs every few days
  23. if the dog has abed blanket put it the car and leave it there for a few days, the car might have to the dogs nose dog smells from last owner you need to being blunt stink the car up with your own dogs smell so throw in the stinky work boots old bed blnket that needs a wash anything that makes your house smell to the dogs nose
