  1. Luna sounds like the exception to the rule, they can be like that for years and then one day they just go. We take ours with us on days out, they have 3 hours + a day walking plus off lead runs and still Cai would be gone in a heartbeat if he was able to escape and Luka blue shows no interest in escaping but he would follow Cai. When Cai’s on his walks all he does is look for prey, he just wants to hunt! Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  2. I always checked them before we went out and I thought it was secure, I don’t know how he did it but he did, Luka blue never bothered to try. I think it depends on the personality of your dog, Cai can get out of anything, he used to open the safety gates! Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  3. I’m now working on leaving the bandage on = short walk, giving the command ‘leave it’ and I’ve left the room, started with 5 mins and I’m now up to 50 mins and the bandage is still on, every time I come back in the room I say good boy and he’s out for a 10 min walk. It beats putting bandages back on all the time, such a clever dog tho, he learns fast. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  4. Took Cai to the vet this morning for a dressing change, even tho I changed it 14 times since Friday, he managed to get them off even with a muzzle on [emoji33] vet said it’s healing nicely but needs to stay on for another 3 days so she put a cone on him and zip tied it, within 20 mins of being home he managed to get it off.......should have named him Houdini [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  5. I swear by indi-harnesses, super safe and I love the choice of colours available. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners Indi dog harnesses [emoji849] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  6. Aww hope she gets better soon, doggy hugs and kisses [emoji240][emoji8] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  7. Update on court, he didn’t turn up at the magistrates so they’ve set it for the 25th and if he’s a no show again they’ll be a warrant out for his arrest, I’m almost hoping he doesn’t turn up. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  8. Awww, what a relief for you and to have Lunar back to more or less himself you must feel very happy. You are dedicated to your furbies. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  9. Cai got out of his Julius k9 twice, and he did it so fast, he backed out of it, not secure enough for husky’s imo, I know plenty of people use them, I just don’t think it’s worth the risk if you have a runner! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  10. You can run them on a scooter on the beach, never on tarmac as it can burn their pads, when I was looking to get insurance for my 2 the general consensus was to get public liability insurance just for having sibes, in case they manage to escape and because they just run regardless of what’s in their way, car accidents have been caused, livestock killed and we as owners are liable. The forestry commission operate a permit system but they’ll insist on a substantial amount of third party insurance cover for working your dogs. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  11. Wow, they’ve grown loads, time is flying by [emoji1] Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  12. There’s so many off lead dogs walking where I take mine and the owners don’t ever seem to think they’re the ones in the wrong for allowing their dogs to be offlead, you can’t blame the dogs they’re just being dogs, it’s the owners who need telling. Cai’s been bitten a few times and only 3 weeks ago a spaniel ran down his drive and ran at Cai snarling and growling and jumped on Cai’s back and bit him, totally ignoring his owner shouting his name to come back........nightmare [emoji33] Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  13. I think harnesses are better as my 2 pull a lot, if you use just a collar and she pulls she’s taking all of the strain around her neck. Training training and more training for everything! Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  14. Out of curiosity, which DNA brand did you use? It’s good to know what mix he is, my 2 were clingy when they were very young puppies but I started to leave them in the kitchen with a safety gate at the door and I’d go out of the front door, and they could see me leaving, at first I’d leave for 5 mins and I did this a few times a day and then I’d leave for 10 mins and so on, it helps with separation anxiety. If you do this he’s less likely to be clingy and it’ll be normal for him to be alone whilst you’re out. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  15. Well 5 hours on, 3 bandage changes and 2 socks later [emoji33] he really is an expert at taking it off. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
