  1. He’s so gorgeous [emoji3] his eyes can take up to 12-16 weeks before the final colour comes thru, unless they’re brown. Cai, my red had blue eyes up until 12 weeks then turned green and finally amber, Luka blue’s didn’t change, brown from birth. As for his ears, the cartilage at the base of a standing ear will start to feel firm by 4-6 weeks of age but it can sometimes take a few months before both stand up, one of mine had one ear up and one down until a few months of age, it’s important not to play with ears as it softens the cartilage and they could stay floppy. Please post pics as he grows
  2. Hi, I started training them at 4 months of age going out of the front door with them watching me behind the dog gate and randomly throughout the day, it’s worked for my 2 as it’s just part of the day now. Cai knows I’m going out when he hears me pick the keys up and he’ll run in2 the kitchen, if he’s in the back garden, I just say ‘back soon’ and I leave, I keep it low key, When they were pups they’d howl for a couple of minutes but they don’t now they’re older, I used to leave them with a bone when they were 15-18 months old, purely to keep them occupied. Maybe you could give them a toy or a
  3. Nice tats everyone! Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners mobile app The cherry blossom will be extended and I have one on my hip and ankle, my other half hates them. We’ve just come back from fuerteventura and he hated me wearing swimwear, as if I’m going to cover up in temps of 32 degrees plus [emoji849] Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  6. Cai was like that when he was younger, snapping if I touched his paws, growling when taking something away from he that he shouldn’t have had etc. I worked really hard with him, I think it’s partly a trust issue, I’d randomly sit by him on the floor and stroke him all over telling him he’s a good boy and then get a sneaky feel of his paws, he got used to it eventually and now he’s fine with it, we need to be able to check paws for injuries. He was a nightmare if we ate in front of him so I started by letting them come in the dining room while we were eating and I’d bring tiny treats and when t
  7. Cai hates it, after we left the groomer last year he smelt gorgeous and he purposely rubbed in Fox poop straight after, Luka blue hates it so I don’t do it anymore, they get stressed so I use a bowl of warm water and natural dog shampoo and sponge them down, they let me do it with no fuss and I dry them off afterwards which they both enjoy, they both lift their legs and turn over for me without me asking them [emoji1] Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  8. My 2 have different coats, I love it when they get their winter coat, they fill out more. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  11. [emoji23] I sometimes miss the puppy shenanigans. They will settle as they get older, it can be exhausting when they’re pups, my 2 were nuts! Upstairs was a no go area when they were younger and I’d let them come up with me for 10-15 mins to start with then increase the time gradually, it’s worked out well for us........eventually [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  12. Maybe you could put his crate in the bedroom for a while, if you keep letting him in the living room he’ll keep wanting to go there, that will become his preferred place to sleep, they get used to a routine. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners mobile app
  13. Cai and Luka blue used to compete for my affection and Luka would stand in front of me to block Cai off from me, even now when I come home they do this thing where they get noisy with each other. I use commands, ‘enough’ when they get too loud and then ‘what’s this’ and they immediately sit and get a small treat. Dominant behaviour can get out of control if not kept in check, Snowball hasn’t been with you for long and settling in with another dog can take a while, this is maybe something you could try, When Cai (the dominant of the two) and Luka blue were fed and relaxed I’d sit them apart a
  14. I don’t fuss mine on leaving or returning, mine have the back garden their converted shed and the kitchen, they’re usually in the kitchen when I return and the tv is on. Shift work can’t be helped and having the dog walker, I can’t see what more you could do. Maybe you could talk to her and explain your shifts, I’d keep the recordings you have as evidence should you ever need to prove the noise is only for a few minutes. Good luck, some people are just vindictive. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  15. I think the problem lies with the busy body, if the howling is only for a few minutes then I don’t see what the problem is, there’s soooo many laws about things what’s happened to common sense. As long as they’re not howling before 8 in the morning and after 8 at night I don’t see the issue. You could try leaving the radio on for them, I leave my tv on for my 2 when we go out it seems to make a difference. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  17. Angie [emoji33][emoji23]. Cai loves going upstairs to bed, Luka blue follows, we ‘prepare’ a little because I’m sure Cai thinks our bed is his so before we go up one of my sons will sit on my side for a couple of minutes, just so Cai doesn’t lie there, saves me hoiking him over, Luka blue lies in the middle of the bed for about 20 mins then he goes down to lie by the front door and Cai jumps off the bed after an hour and lies by the side of the bed and that’s it until morning.........then the fun begins.

  18. I’d leave him to eat his food, I think dogs should eat their food in peace but you could train during the day, not at food times, if he’s food aggressive by using tiny pieces of fruit or whatever you wish, by hand feeding to begin with. Food aggression is partly down to a lack of trust, bonding with your pup coupled with consistent training and you will see the difference. Cai was food aggressive with Luka blue, feeding time was a nightmare when they were younger, and when Cai had a bone he was a different animal altogether [emoji33] We worked on his food aggression for the best part of 18 mon

  24. Love watching your videos but in slow motion it’s mesmerising, you can really see every dogs excitement. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  25. 2 husky’s and a Yorkshire terrier, my younger son would love an iguana so we’re looking in2 that and I’d love a snake, but Phil’s petrified of them [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
