  1. I’d recommend a behaviourist rather than a trainer, if you’ve tried the other methods with no success I’d make an appt. Husky’s are quite mouthy and she’s still young, I’d have a lead at the ready and at the first sign of her trying to bite say ah ah and put the lead on her and walk her out to another room for a time out and take the lead off her. If she tries to bite again when you bring her back then put the lead on her and take her out again, do this every time and hopefully she’ll get the message, it won’t change overnight, patience and persistence with lots of love and they do pick up on our frustration.

  2. Pretty much as everyone has said, husky’s come to you when they want to not when you ask. My 2 love cuddles and will cuddle up to me on the settee and the bed, not so much as pups but they’re both 3 now and I’ve noticed a change as they’ve got older, maybe yours will to.

  3. As above, I used to take my 2 out every 30 mins as pups, even if they didn’t do anything, praise him when he does his pee and poop outside, they love praise. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  4. Hi, just wondering which cbd you use on your joint pain, there’s so many to choose from, it’s a minefield. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  5. One of mine loves to cuddle, the closer the better, if he can’t sit on me or next to me he lies across my feet, he’s so heavy [emoji849] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  6. A behaviourist is your best option, i used one for one of mine, great results, whatever training is advised you will need to carry on with it yourself and it does take time but don’t give up, once shadow realises she has new behaviours to learn I think you’ll be surprised by how quickly she’ll learn.

  7. I like to buy old furniture and give it a new lease of life, sanding it down, oiling it or painting it, whatever it needs. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  8. What a truly sad day that’ll be when you have to make that decision. How wonderful you’ve shared 14 years with Lunar, I hope I’m lucky enough to have as many with my 2. Lots of hugs for Lunar [emoji8] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  9. Not all vets know about husky’s needs, they’re not a regular dog so advice given, even from a professional isn’t always correct, we assume it is because they’re supposed to know answers to our questions. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  10. Happy 1st birthday!!!! [emoji512][emoji513]🧁 and no rocks, just cake for you 2 [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  11. I wouldn’t interfere with his prey hunting, it’s normal, the growl is a warning and if you still pull him away then he’ll bite. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  13. It’s all new for him and he needs to readjust, it can take time. I’d take him out for 10-15 mins regularly throughout the day to get him used to his new surroundings, praise him when he’s walking nicely and not trying to escape. Don’t overload him with long walks and lots of people, gradually build up the time you walk him. Hope it works for you both. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  14. Are her sinuses ok? Any issues with her teeth? It could be a fungal infection, if it’s allergies the mucus is usually clear and not green or smelly. Hope she’ll be ok. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  15. As above for socialising....... what kind of vet advises euthanasia for a pup!! If you have noticed she’s nervous and is aggressive with it then I’d advise a behaviourist only because one of mine was the same. I socialised him from 10-12 weeks and he was a little nervous as a pup but didn’t start reacting with growls and raised hackles until around 6 months old. His behaviour caused a few issues as he’s s big boy and would lunge at some dogs who’d growl at him first, he was reactive. My other husky is the complete opposite, confident and loves all dogs and people so walking them both together was an issue at times. I saw a behaviourist for Luka blue and it’s the best thing I did for him, I gained some insight as to how difficult it was for him and I was able to understand his needs better. I was told that his issues were down to genetics and it may well be that’s the case for your pup but equally so it may not be the case so I’d advise a behaviourist so you can get a clearer picture of her temperament, even if you just see one to rule it out would help.
