  1. That’s entirely up to you, as long as it’s safe and secure for him, you could add extra’s to keep him occupied, his own sheltered area etc. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  2. I buy my harnesses, leads, etc from Indi-dog, you can custom make them as well, plenty of choice, a variety of colours and well made. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  3. Hi, the age that he is now is the time his prey drive is kicking in, he’ll take every opportunity he can to escape and hunt for prey. If he’s tied up for long periods of time he will become very bored and this can lead to separation anxiety, husky’s are an intelligent breed and as much as they love to be with us they are independent. Shock collars, in my opinion, are cruel and can lead to fear and aggression, using one of these will hinder your bonding with him. Neutering is a personal preference, for some dogs who’ve had the chop they can become overweight and lazy and for some it has made no difference to their behaviour at all. I’d do more research before you decide, there’s evidence to suggest it’s not as healthy for them to have it done as vets lead us to believe. I have 2 males and I decided against it after researching, one of mine had an undescended testicle and a vet I saw was badgering me to have both testes removed as she said the other one wouldn’t drop. I didn’t agree to it and it did drop. Neutering him would not stop him running off either, he was bred to run, it’s in their DNA, plenty of exercise, physical and mental is the only way forward. A fenced area is the way to go for safety and a chance for him to run his energy off, it would need to be at least 6 foot high and a horse wired fence is very strong. Husky’s can dig and are really good at it, you’d need to ensure he couldn’t dig his way out underneath the fence, they are Houdini’s! Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  4. Hi, gorgeous pup! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  5. So sorry for your loss. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  7. Mean in what way? Pups will pee pretty regularly and especially when they wake up and after drinking, I took mine outside to pee every 30 mins, once they did the pee they had lots of praise and a tiny treat, dogs respond to positive reinforced training, being mean to a dog will lead to distrust and usually aggression.

  8. [emoji23] it’s lovely weather here in mid-wales and my 2 are loving the garden. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  9. Happy fur babies! But just be aware of how warm the roads are on their paws, they shouldn’t really run on roads as their paws can burn, it’s safer on grass, sand or in a forest. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  10. Mine sit and wait for food when I’m cooking even tho they’ve just finished theirs [emoji849] I feed my 2 twice a day and feed according to their weight if I didn’t they’d be rolling around not walking. I do have a bag of carrots or sliced apple ready to give to them when I’m cooking, they both have an endless appetite, abit like my human sons! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  11. As above, looks husky! Only a DNA test can give you 100% genetics, people will always offer up their opinion if asked, it doesn’t mean any of them are right. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  12. Hi, do you feed him kibble? Diet is usually the main culprit for a dry, brittle coat, he may be lacking in essential omega fatty acids but I’d take him for a check up at the vets to make sure there’s no underlying issues. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  13. Lovely pup! Agoutis usually have cream coloured fur instead of white. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  14. This is not the behaviour to allow, imagine a nip from adult teeth! Whatever her reason for nipping correct this immediately, a firm no, no shouting, and when she understands say ‘good girl’ they love praise. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
