  1. Love the video, I loved the days when you’d walk away from them and they’d rush to be by your side. Not anymore.......[emoji849] Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  5. chewing on it can make it worse, if the pads are cracked put some paw balm on to moisturise Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  6. Some pups go through a chubby phase and as they grow they look more lean but the general rule is as long as you can feel the ribs but not see them and the same for the lumbar vertebrae then they should be healthy and fit. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  7. I use a rake on my 2, I do it daily and 3 times a day when they’re shedding [emoji33] Cai has never had an issue with me raking him but Luka blue hated it as a pup but he’s ok with it now......finally. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  9. It must have been the way I worded it [emoji849] we go out for more than 6 hours, what I should have said is if we’re out I can leave them unsupervised for up to 6 hours and it’s taken about 18 months to achieve this, I’d go out for short periods of time and gradually increase the time I’d be gone. In the beginning I’d leave for 5 mins, then 10 and so on, on a few occasions if I’d be gone for 2 hours I’d come home to chewed cushions, the rubbish all over the floor, and they’d managed to open the safety gate! I work from home so I’m with them most of the time, which helps, when we go off for th

  12. Hi, they’re more than a dog, they are as all have said above, but with you being at home you’ll have the time to train them, i’d advise you to fully research this breed before you decide because too many end up in rescues, it’s taken me just over 2 years to train my 2 to be able to leave them for up to 6 hours with nothing destroyed and it’s been hard work but so worth it, they are an amazing breed but it requires commitment with training and giving them the exercise they need.

  13. Husky’s can’t be compared to other breeds, I trained two from pups and it took a good 2 years to get to where I am now, I can leave them for 6 hours with no incidents, they are well behaved and listen to commands, and they have full access around the house. We’ve had our issues and destructive behaviour along the way but positive reinforced training is a must imo. I have to agree with separate training, I did this and it helps you to develop your bond with each pup, as already mentioned at 9 months they start to ignore you and can be stubborn. It can be frustrating and tiring and you may find
  14. Unsure of the pepper spray here in the uk.......... my son won’t do ‘that’ walk on his own anymore, that idiot has ruined it for him, animals behave better than some people. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  15. An update on the attack, it’s been a while but the CPS have agreed there’s a case so he’s to appear at the Magistrates court next Tuesday to plead, if he pleads not guilty it will be a court case. He has previous and has been inside so it doesn’t look good for him. They can’t add the abuse to Cai or the rascism so he’s being charged with common assault. Good enough for him.

  17. My red had an undescended testicle and the vet was quite pushy in trying to get me to have it removed, it dropped a few months later. Both of my boys are intact and after lots of research they’ll be staying that way, evidence points to more health issues having them neutered, vets push for neutering imo because of irresponsible breeding.

  18. Mine were socialised with people and other dogs as pups and I have one who seeks attention from everyone and other dogs and Luka blue is the complete opposite, he only likes his family to stroke him and play with him, he shows zero interest in anyone else. Some like it and some don’t and it’s not just husky’s. I wouldn’t worry, she may change as she gets older, a friend of mine has a female 5 year old husky who would completely ignore me for the first 3 years and now when I see her she’s wagging her tail rushing to greet me woo wooing.

  19. Cute pup! Overall I wouldn’t say husky’s are hard to train and as Emma says it depends on your viewpoint, they are intelligent and independent free thinking dogs and imo as long as you understand this breed then you’ll work any issues out. They aren’t like any other breed so keep an open mind. I’d establish a routine for training, playing and feeding as soon as possible, positive reinforced training is the way to go, plenty of praise they thrive on it, my 2 do anyway. Short attention span is usual when they’re pups so I’d advise keep training short for pups as you’ll frustrate yourself and i

  22. Hi, just a thought, is he crated during the night and do you take him out to pee at night? Is it possible for you to remove the crate for a while, at least until he’s going outside regularly. It sounds as tho the crate is his preferred place to go maybe removing it might spur him on to go outside. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  23. Sorry to hear Stella was hurt, I hope she’ll be ok and you to. Unfortunately my 2 are growled and barked at daily when we’re out on walks, mostly the smaller variety. I take mine to an off lead field to run and it’s theirs for 30 or 60 mins. I don’t take mine to dog parks as one of mine is reactive but only if he’s growled at first, they love the off lead field. I wouldn’t blame yourself for taking Stella to the dog park and I hope it doesn’t set her back with socialising. Wishing you both well. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  24. It’s laughable what some people say about our furbabies [emoji23] Traditionally husky’s are medium height, my 2 are big so some people think Luka blue is part wolf or whatever else they ask me [emoji33] Cosmo looks all husky and very handsome, and I’d ignore the comments, smile politely and walk on. All husky’s differ in size and build and if you’re not worried then don’t give it a second thought. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  25. I would start from the beginning, taking him out every 30 mins, night time too, it worked for my 2 and they were toilet trained by 11 weeks . It’s no fun getting up in the night but 2-3 weeks of doing this should work. If mine need to go out during the night Cai will go down and bark once by the back door and Luka will put his paw on me if I’m asleep. Good luck [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
