  1. Thinking of you. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  2. Time and patience, it might help the pup to bond with your hubby if he walks him and as above with feeding him. Good luck. Just to let you know, if you don’t already, that the walks are 5 mins per month of age, so at 12 weeks he can walk for 15 mins maybe 2-3 times per day, good luck!

  3. Glad you managed to get an appt, I’d be at the vets door regardless with a tumour, benign or not. Hope it goes well. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  4. Hi, gorgeous pup! Looking at him he looks about right for 5 months, he still has a lot of growing to do. Huskies are traditionally a medium sized breed and I wouldn’t make any comparisons as long as he’s happy and healthy. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  5. Hi, have you tried a raw diet? You could try making the change by giving raw once a day and for the other meal adding some carrots or sweet potato etc and I’d avoid human meals as it’ll be harder to make any changes. He won’t starve himself and husky’s are intelligent, he’s prob realised if he doesn’t eat what you put down for him he knows he’ll get something else. If he doesn’t eat his food after 10-15 mins then take it away and don’t give him anything else, I will add that variety will keep him interested in his meals. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  6. Sounds as though you’ve made good progress, keep on building up the trust between you and with the effort you’re making your bond with her will strengthen and then you’ll reap the rewards. [emoji3][emoji240] Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  7. Hi, sorry, I misunderstood, has this behaviour become apparent since she’s been on Propalin? This medication does have some side effects, loss of appetite, listlessness and irritability are a few. This could explain her leaving food, on your next vet trip I’d definitely ask about a natural remedy, Incontia is one that I’ve heard of, but speak to the vet before you change medication, I’d also mention her withdrawn behaviour, it maybe related to the Propalin. Would Luna come in if you put her lead on and walked her into the house, especially when the weathers bad? I hope you find a solution, it
  8. Hi, I would start retraining her from the beginning, with separation anxiety start by leaving the house, with her watching, say nothing when you leave and likewise when you return, leave for a few minutes at a time multiple times during the day, it took me between 15-18 months of doing this to be able to leave the house with no incidents for roughly 4-5 hours, mine are both 4 years old and I can leave them for longer. Some like crates some hate them, I tried crate training with little success so I didn’t bother, my view is if you can train them to behave around the house without putting them
  9. Baby steps with building up a relationship based on trust, not just for you but for her to be able to trust you as well. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  10. You’re doing all the right things for her, the only thing that I can think of is that she may be missing her litter mate, particularly if they were close, playing together and grooming each other, 6 years together is a long time and dogs experience loss, whether it’s a human or an animal. The panting when you’re out with her is probably her trying to cool down, I take water out with me when I’m on walks, maybe take some with you and see if this helps her. It does sound as if she’s a little sad, just keep on doing what you’re doing, building up your bond by stroking and grooming her, I wouldn’t
  11. Did you rescue her? If she’s fit and healthy then this could be her personality, as much as husky’s enjoy alone time they usually enjoy human interaction. Try setting some time aside to sit with her just stroking her and talking to her, this will build up your bond with her and eventually she may seek you out for some affection. I play ball with my two, one loves bringing it back for me to throw and the other runs off with it to peel it, they get bored quickly with toys. Does Luna have play time with any other dogs? I think she’d benefit from some dog interaction, is this a possibility? You c
  12. Hi, Indi-dog are one of the safest, there’s no escaping out of these and can be customised. I’ve had small clip on lights for winter walks that will flash and reflective Velcro pieces that you can add to your harness or collar, I bought the lights off eBay.

  13. Both of mine destroyed every dog bed they had [emoji849][emoji3] Cai sleeps on a chair and the floor and Luka blue sleeps on the settee and the floor and at night they’re on and off my bed. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  14. Hi, pups eye colour can change up to 3 times before the final colour at around 5-6 months of age, one of mine, a red, had blue eyes at birth changed to green and are now amber and my grey has brown eyes. Cute pup! Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  15. Hi, welcome to the wonderful world of husky! Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  16. That’s entirely up to you, as long as it’s safe and secure for him, you could add extra’s to keep him occupied, his own sheltered area etc. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  17. I buy my harnesses, leads, etc from Indi-dog, you can custom make them as well, plenty of choice, a variety of colours and well made. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  18. Hi, the age that he is now is the time his prey drive is kicking in, he’ll take every opportunity he can to escape and hunt for prey. If he’s tied up for long periods of time he will become very bored and this can lead to separation anxiety, husky’s are an intelligent breed and as much as they love to be with us they are independent. Shock collars, in my opinion, are cruel and can lead to fear and aggression, using one of these will hinder your bonding with him. Neutering is a personal preference, for some dogs who’ve had the chop they can become overweight and lazy and for some it has made no

  22. Mean in what way? Pups will pee pretty regularly and especially when they wake up and after drinking, I took mine outside to pee every 30 mins, once they did the pee they had lots of praise and a tiny treat, dogs respond to positive reinforced training, being mean to a dog will lead to distrust and usually aggression.

  24. Happy fur babies! But just be aware of how warm the roads are on their paws, they shouldn’t really run on roads as their paws can burn, it’s safer on grass, sand or in a forest. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  25. Mine sit and wait for food when I’m cooking even tho they’ve just finished theirs [emoji849] I feed my 2 twice a day and feed according to their weight if I didn’t they’d be rolling around not walking. I do have a bag of carrots or sliced apple ready to give to them when I’m cooking, they both have an endless appetite, abit like my human sons! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
