  1. Lovely pics [emoji3][emoji240]they grow so fast, her harness looks great! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  2. I’d start re training, taking them outside to pee and poop, praise when they do it and until they’re retrained can you restrict where they go in the house with the use of a dog gate. Where’s Penny going when she’s jumping the wall? You’ll have to look into highering it or putting a wire fence on top of the wall. I had a similar issue with Cai, he managed to jump onto next doors shed and he sit there watching the world go by so I highered the wall by adding a fence across it, safety first!

  3. Awww, it can be hard for some boots to stay on and whether he’d keep them on, Amazon stock waterproof booties. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  4. At this age I’d take mine out every 20-30 mins so as to reinforce peeing is outside only, sometimes they’d pee sometimes not but lots of praise and a tiny treat when they did it. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  11. Hope you get it sorted, poor baby. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  12. Hope she’ll be ok, pups will eat anything they come across, you have to watch them like hawks especially on walks. Vet trip with persistent sickness, she can dehydrate quickly, I gave mine cooked white fish with sweet potato (a spoonful of s.potato) when they were ill. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  13. They will grow out of destroying stuff, I bought 3 or 4 beds and after they destroyed the last one I didn’t bother to buy anymore. I honestly NEVER thought I’d be where we are now, they sleep upstairs with us, one on the bed then off again, one by the front door then upstairs again. They started to settle down by 18 months, Cai is 3 in Feb and Luka blue will be 3 in April, they wore me out for the first year and a half......but I’d do it again!

  14. Food allergies are the usual culprits and secondary infections from yeast and bacteria exacerbate the behaviour. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  15. I tried walk your dog with love for my biggest and strongest boy Luka blue.......It didn’t work. I’ve found lots of training, wait, easy now, etc and I’ve also found walking them together using a neckline so they can’t pull in opposite directions helps and a walking belt. For the first 20 mins of the walk I use an Indi-dog head harness, very soft and you connect it to your lead at the back of the head, easier on your fur babies than some others. It’s natural for husky’s to pull and they’ll pull more when they see squirrels or cats etc, what works for one doesn’t for another, it’s a case of finding what works for you. As they mature some say they pull less.........I’m hoping! Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  19. They make you laugh with their behaviour, lucky you having snow [emoji301]️ we’re just having rain and loads more rain! When it snowed this year my 2 would bury themselves in it, I couldn’t get them in at night. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  20. I’d recommend a behaviourist every time, I saw one for Luka blue last year and it really helped, she was able to explain his behaviour in a way that made sense and I applied it to all situations, vets are more medical related rather than emotional. Dave will be able to smell your hormone changes and maybe it gives him anxiety, but it maybe something unrelated to your pregnancy, dogs like their routine and there will be changes when your baby arrives, it might help to prepare him. As an example of how sensitive they can be, Cai, my red kept sniffing and pawing at my stomach for the last 2-3 months and he’d pace around after he’d sniff my tummy and was unsettled. I’m taking morphine and codeine for pain relief for my hip and I went to the doctors last week with stomach pain, turns out my pain meds are causing other issues and Cai was onto it before I knew it but I couldn’t work out what was causing his change in behaviour, now I know. I hope you get it sorted, he sounds amazing. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  21. Hi, what a gorgeous red [emoji1] Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  22. I tried it for 2 days and mine hated it, plus I wanted to be able to get them used to free roam around the house with no issues, there was a video on the forum somewhere showing how to get them used to going in it using treats, taking it slow and building the time up so she sees it as a good place. Husky’s love to be with us and near us maybe you could put the crate in the bedroom at night so she can see you. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  23. My 2 love to play with balls, I haven’t come across one that is totally husky proof yet but there are some good ones around. Kong products are good but beware of toys that have stuffing in them, husky’s can destroy toys quickly and eat the stuffing which can cause blockages. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  24. A lady from the witness programme phoned me with the courts decision, he has a 12 month community order, he has to check in with probation once a day, if he fails to check in he’ll be visiting HM Prison, he has to attend rehab and be submitted to random drug tests, he has to pay £300 court costs and compensation to my son and myself and a restraining order is in place.

  25. My 18 year old son and I took Cai, Luka blue and Toby for a walk yesterday afternoon and we were walking home when a man and his staffy cross came up behind us. He was telling his dog to ‘watch em watch em’ so i told my son to walk faster and I was steering Cai and Luka blue towards the wall away from the man, he overtook us and his dog lunged for Luka, the man made no attempt to pull his dog back, Luka and Cai lunged for the dog and a fight began, the man let go of his dogs lead and my son and I were trying to pull ours away and a woman was stood in a doorway opposite and told us to come in, she said ‘he wants a dog fight’. We managed to get into the building, there was blood all over the pathway, didn’t know who’s at this point, I was trying to check mine over when the man shouted ‘your effin dog has bitten mine’ then he started shouting racist abuse at my son, tried to punch my son in the face but caught his shoulder, called me an ‘effin bitch’ and spat in my face, the man and his mate were threatening my son, saying they will find out who he is and kill him.He then somehow managed to kick Cai in the stomach and then kicked him in the face, I managed to close the door to the building and phoned the police. I was home 5 mins when the police came, apparently 2 witnesses phoned the police also, saying an aggressive male was spouting rascist abuse and kicking a dog. They took our statements, they know who he is, a police woman checked on the mans dog, the owner took his dog back to his room and left it there and went out,his dog has a puncture wound on his cheek.He assaulted my son, myself and my ‘big red’ (Cai) My son managed to keep Toby behind him but Luka blue has a bite mark on his cheek, they’ve been checked out and they’re both fine. Sorry for the essay. I’m worried about taking them both out now and Luka blue has come a long way from growling on walks, will this be a big set back? I have to be honest when I say I’m nervous too.
