  1. Smells drive them nuts on walks, cats, squirrels etc and they pull more when they’re going on the same walk that they’ve seen a cat etc, mine do anyway. I bought head collars for my 2 from indi dog as they clip at the back of the neck and they’re much softer on the snout, they are a tool but sometimes you have to use them for your safety and theirs.

    Thankyou, no blood was drawn, thankfully [emoji28] That was very lucky he came back when called. Mine have been attacked a few times now, always dogs that are off the lead. It’s weird how husky’s seem to get that reaction from other dogs. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  4. The previous owner sounds as tho his interest is purely for monetary gain, he can’t force you to breed her because she’s your dog now, I’d be having her fixed now, she’s not a breeding machine. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

    Other dogs can be a nightmare! We were walking Cai and Luka blue by the river on Monday and a bloke had his nervous rescue staff with him off the lead and he decided to catch us up to build up his dogs confidence, not a problem, my 2 always on the lead, 20 mins in his staff went for Cai’s throat, bit him and then walked off!! I was fuming, the bloke walked off aswell, he must have been embarrassed as he’d spent the whole walk telling us what a good girl she is around other dogs, not aggressive blah blah blah. She’s lucky Luka blue didn’t grab her, he tried but I moved him away, they protect each other.

  6. If she only has small litters then she won’t look big when she’s pregnant, and she should have had a vet check to ensure mum and pups are healthy. A dogs gestation period is usually 58-68 days. I agree with the above, that’s a lot of breeding for a 5 year old. There are so many husky’s that end up in rescue centres because of a lack of knowledge of how to care for this breed, husky puppies are so adorable that people rush to buy them and give them up after 6 months or so, please ensure potential owners understand what is required in caring for one.

  7. One of mine is obedient, chilled and calm and my other one.......well let’s say he’s the opposite [emoji849] Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  8. Typical husky behaviour but it does get better, boredom is usually a reason for destructive behaviour. How often do you walk her for and for how long? Dog safety gates are great for limiting access around your home, a lot of playing and mental stimulation for her to keep her busy, training sessions will also tire her. She’s still a pup and has loads of energy, my two are both 3 now and it was full on hard work for about 2 years. Positive reinforced training works really well and lots of praise when she responds, husky’s like to be around us humans and will behave better when they’re with you. It’s not unlike having a toddler who’s into everything when husky’s are young, be patient and your hard work will pay off. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  10. I’ve had a Henry for over a year and it’s ok ish, I treated myself to a dyson v8, it’s the best thing I bought myself, (sounds a little sad) makes light work of husky fur........AND it’s cordless. (I don’t work for dyson if it’s crossing your minds) Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  15. It really is about sticking to one method, I took mine out every 30 mins, reward with lots of praise and a treat when they pee or poop, lots of patience is required and love, Apollo will pick up on the frustration which will set him back. Has he seen a vet to make sure there isn’t a medical issue? Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  16. Love my Indi dog walking belt, you can customise as well. Very important to adhere to walking times in relation to age, at 8 weeks a 10 min walk is enough but you can do it multiple times in the day. Also not to walk the hottest time of the day now it’s getting warmer, it’s useful to take water to drink as your pup gets older especially if you go on long walks.

  17. A tired husky is a well behaved husky, plenty of exercise, playing games together etc. Boredom is usually the culprit when they become destructive. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  18. As above, ages are usually on the food packaging, I switched to raw at 6 months. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

    Very sorry for your loss, run fast Lunar......run free.... Marley is grieving and it will take time but try doing things to take his mind off it, other than that I don’t know what to suggest. Hope you’re ok. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  21. Definitely train to drop and leave it, hands coming towards a dog can be seen as aggressive so a dog will react, occasionally one of mine will growl if a person puts their hands near his head to stroke him. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  22. I took mine out every 30 mins or so and at night, no fun at 3 in the morning [emoji849] sometimes they’d do something other times not, I did this religiously with both of mine, lots of praise when they go outside to pee. I think it worked as Cai was trained in just over 2 weeks and Lula blue took nearly 4 weeks. You need to be consistent and as pups they can’t hold it for long. Good luck !

  23. As above, husky’s like to be with us than away from us so separation anxiety could be the issue and boredom. If I’m going out for a few hours I take them for an extra long walk and leave them with a lamb bone to chew on, i can leave them for 5-6 hours without any issues. It took around 12 months of training to achieve this, as for the garden, I slabbed mine and I’ve now put fake grass down. Husky’s are notorious diggers and will destroy when they’re bored.

  24. 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.

  25. 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.
