  1. Yes I've been twatted in the nuts with the heavy screw up type. however mostly it was them constantly slapping against my knees (I've got one of Sids Bungee walking belt and that adds about 6 inches to the length and they hang down a little further)
  2. Hi Paul these are the ones I use https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07N7FN2MK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 lightweight at only 80 grams but "proper" climbing Carabiners with snap-lock closures twist to open, release and they auto snap closed. Strong enough that my two on the same carabiner can be lunging crazy because they've seen a deer in the field and no chance of them breaking it
  3. This does sound like "Hey, you're home. Boy am I so happy to see you." when they present their back end to you it's usually a sign they want a good "scritching" around the tail and back haunches.
  4. They are very well known in the security and personal protection fields in the USA there are quite a few breeders overs there, but they are largely unknown to the general population, because they are largely used in the police / military and security and rarely get to be available as simple pets. I've had Huskies and shepherds for 10 years, and as I'm heading fast for 60 as I get older I'd like a dog that i can guarantee I can control rather than one which will take me for a walk, also one that I don't have to chase for 5 miles if it gets off lead (getting too old for that sh*t)
  5. No better place to start your journey. & Husky camp is a great place to meet us too
  6. Storm wants to be friends with Darwin, however Darwin is currently tolerating storm. They lie on the sofa together and on the floor and step over and around each other to go out to get water or go out to the garden, but they've never played, a bit of cautious sniffing is as social as they get at the moment. However on walks they are on the same walking belt and walk side by side with no problems. It's just Darwin being over protective of "his" people, but he's getting better. So glad Mikey is getting better with new people. Someone put on facebook a few weeks ago a great way to help socialise dogs with other dogs and people is to go and sit in your local vets, the constant flow of people and animals is great for desensitising anxious dogs.
  7. super loyal nutjob dogs almost the exact opposite of huskies.
  8. Rob, you're probably the only person who's even heard of a dutch shepherd, lol
  9. 18 months ago we lost our Gobby girly Echo. She was a White german shepherd Dog. Recently we decided we wanted another shepherd. To give Darwin a companion and also to have a dog that can be trained to walk nicely and be let off lead with reliable recall. So we joined a Uk rescue, had a home check and started looking at possible adoptions. Then this interesting boy turned up. Say hello to Storm. A 4 year old Dutch Shepherd mix. the brindle coat is not the mix, that's the normal dutch shepherd coat. He's certainly a unique looking dawg Very few people will have heard of a Dutch shepherd, they were nearly wiped out during WWII, and most dutch shepherds end up with the Police or military as like Belgian Malinois they excel at that kind of work and so not many end up as pets. He is a good natured dog, loves people. He's really bonded with my seven year old granddaughter Eden-Willow and seems to get on with most other dogs. We've had him for a month, we've waited this long before announcing his arrival as sometimes a rescue may not work out for no fault of either the dog or the family, sometimes it's just not a good match. However he is settling in, He and Darwin have had a couple of scraps both instigated by Darwin being overly protective of his people, but we were expecting this so it's all good. Darwin is adjusting to the new dog in the pack and the occasional snarling and grumbling gets less by the day. He is a typical shepherd breed, always wanting to be by your side (even in the toilet !!!) always wanting a ball throw, and always happy to go for a walk. However his original family did no training with him, not even Sit!!! so we have a blank canvas and he's doing well and is eager to learn. You can all meet him at next years Husky Camp.

  12. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Foot-Horse-Training-Lunge-Lead/dp/B01B4R4KH6/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=50ft+horse+lead&qid=1566243984&s=gateway&sr=8-2 I have this one for Darwin it's good strong lead that gives him plenty of space to roam and have the illusion of a bit more freedom.
  13. Caravans booked for Husky camp 2020
  14. Well done sounds like Mikey is settling in. The first few months are always a challenge integrating a new dog into the house. sounds like it's going well, you've identified the triggers and removed them as best you can. Keep up the good work.. . . . oh yeah, where are the pics of Mikey and Marley together !!!!
  15. Stunning Dogs, Fantastic pictures. What a combination.
