  1. That must have been terrifying, thank goodness he loves his home! Would have loved to see a secret recording of what he got up to! I saw a cartoon once of a cat that was curled up by the fire and when the owners left he sneaked out, had a great night out and was curled up by the fire when the owners returned to be greeted by what a good kitty! He winked. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  3. Mine sit and wait when we’re eating, I never give them what we’re eating but every now and again I’ll give them a piece of beef or chicken just for sitting nicely. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  4. They’re still young so a way to go yet with walking nicely, Indi dog head harness is slightly different to the head halti, easier in their snouts, the younger you put them on the better, mine hated them at first but now no problems. I tried the walk your dog with love, (I think that’s the name), for Luka blue, it used to be like walking a freight train with him but that didn’t make a difference. You just have to find what works for you. [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  5. Mine are big boys, 13 stone between them and we live in mid wales, plenty of sheep, squirrels, hundreds of cats, and husky’s being husky’s naturally want to drag you to these animals [emoji33][emoji849]. I honestly think training and lots of it, is the way to go, if you want to be able to control them without the aid of prongs etc. Safety is paramount when you’re out walking for us and for them and mine will pull but when I say wait, they wait, I have to have eyes everywhere, like they do, and they do get better as they mature. Have a look on indi dog at head harnesses, I’ve used them, they’re
  6. Cai and Luka blue are well known in town, people cross the road to see them, Cai loves the fuss, the more strokes the better, children sometimes think Luka blue is a wolf [emoji191]. When I go to Shrewsbury with them people flock around them and ask all kinds of questions, people often comment on how well behaved they are when we’re on the train. The only negative is how badly other dogs react to them. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  7. Hi, with the size of his paws looks like Ivar’s going to be a big boy! His snout is quite broad looks a little like a Labrador, you can see the husky in him. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  9. Awww, I hope she’ll be ok. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  10. I’d try the organic ones, they sell them in boots and most supermarkets, they’re smooth and easy on tummies. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  11. Dogs growl out of fear, pain, territoriality and possession aggression, he prob sensed something off about the man and was warning him. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  12. I hope Marley feels better soon, for a quick meal you could try the chicken baby dinner, no preservatives and easy on his digestive system. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  13. Sometimes Cai sits in front on the oven when it’s on and they both lie in the sun. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  14. Hi, gorgeous pair! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  15. Huskies go through a growing phase where they can look out of proportion, feed according to their weight. As long as you can feel the ribs but not see them, then weight is fine. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  16. Hope everything goes well, recovery can take a while, if he doesn’t like the cone there are other options. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  17. Happy 10th birthday! 🥂[emoji512] I was an inexperienced husky owner of 2 pups when I first read all of the helpful advice on here, my confidence grew and I decided to join, I honestly don’t think my 2 would be the dogs they are today if it hadn’t of been for all of your insight and advice, thankyou all.

  19. Dogs pant if they’re excited or energetic or hot but if it’s heavy panting and there’s no obvious reason for it I’d get a vet check to make sure there’s no underlying problem. Luka blue pants more than Cai but he gets hot quicker so he likes to be in the cold more, it could be that he’s too hot. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  20. Snow paw store stock a zinc supplement called Nutrazinc, a friend of mine used this with great results. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  22. It’s staggering how much an emergency appt costs, I hope he feels better soon and I hope it’s nothing serious. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  23. Separation anxiety takes a long time to work on, you’re doing the right thing leaving for short periods , but if you feel anxious about doing it he’ll pick up on it. It took me the best part of 18 months to now be able to leave them with no destructive behaviour for 5-6 hours. I’d advise no fuss when leaving him and say ‘back soon’ or your choice of words and leave for 10 mins randomly throughout the day and build the time up, when you return no over the top fuss just say ‘good boy’ (if nothing destroyed) there is no quick fix for SA just keep doing what you’re doing and it will click with hi
  24. I switched to raw when they were 4 months old, they were on a grain free kibble first and they would have diarrhoea on a weekly basis since I’ve raw fed them, hardly ever have issues, lamb is great for firming up their stools. It’s easier than you think, I think it’s measuring it out that puts people off switching to raw, now at every meal time they get excited, they didn’t when they had kibble. You could introduce raw for the last meal, some do a mix of kibble for breakfast and raw for the evening meal. I think there’s more choice and variety with raw and my 2 don’t have issues with their sk
  25. I started walking them one either side but they’d smell something and they’d be darting off in different directions [emoji33] with a neckline they have to go one way, a lot easier on your arms aswell. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
