  1. As above, looks husky! Only a DNA test can give you 100% genetics, people will always offer up their opinion if asked, it doesn’t mean any of them are right. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  2. Hi, do you feed him kibble? Diet is usually the main culprit for a dry, brittle coat, he may be lacking in essential omega fatty acids but I’d take him for a check up at the vets to make sure there’s no underlying issues. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  3. Lovely pup! Agoutis usually have cream coloured fur instead of white. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  4. This is not the behaviour to allow, imagine a nip from adult teeth! Whatever her reason for nipping correct this immediately, a firm no, no shouting, and when she understands say ‘good girl’ they love praise. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  5. You could also try Indi-dog for harnesses, leads, head harnesses etc, I use them for my 2 and I wouldn’t use anything else. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  6. Have you thought about raw? some just don’t like kibble, if you want to stick with kibble maybe try another brand. With pups you have to transition slowly if you decide to switch brands and as above for no free feeding. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  7. Hi, I’d start back to basics, taking her out every 10 -15 mins, especially after drinking and before she goes to bed and when she wakes. Walking will loosen her bowls after she’s eaten, lots of praise when she’s peed and pooped, it can take a while for some to understand where to do it and if she’s peeing inside it’s important to eradicate the smell as she’ll gravitate back to the same place. I took my two outside every 30 mins throughout the night for 2 weeks and the same during the day, be patient with her, lots of praise, try not to be frustrated with her she will get it at some point. Good
  8. So sorry for your loss. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  9. It’s a waiting game regarding the settling in process, it sounds to me as though Nova is happy to have sky join your pack. When sky snarls at Nova it’s her way of saying back off and the fact that they sleep near each other is a good sign and the humping is probably sky trying to assert dominance. They are both still young and I would monitor the play until you feel confident they will play nicely together. They will find their position in the pack eventually and unless they become aggressive with each other I’d let them sort their issues out themselves. Are you training separately or together
  10. Hi, he’s still young and as pups they do like to be with you but biting anyone who tries to touch him is not good, he definitely needs positive reinforced training to get rid of unwanted behaviours. It sounds a little like he’s guarding you and being posessive with you, he’s still young enough for you to turn this behaviour around. I wouldn’t wait to see if he changes because it could become worse. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  11. My 2 were 8 weeks when I brought them home so practically everything they saw went into their mouths, whilst in the kitchen, bathroom and on walks, I’ve had to put nearly everything in cupboards that was on the kitchen worktops and move toothbrushes and toothpaste out of Cai’s way in the bathroom, he loves to grab it [emoji849] on one occasion he was at the vets and they induced vomiting. I’m super careful whilst I’m cooking or I’ll give them a bone outside as a distraction. I hope Loki will be ok. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  12. My 2 aren’t crate trained and when we’re out they have access to downstairs and the back garden, I have a safety gate to restrict access to upstairs, when we’re home they roam free. This didn’t happen overnight it took about 18-24 months of training to be able to trust them. It’s what works for you. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  13. Try giving her cooked white fish and mashed sweet potato, always works for my 2 when they’re a little off. I hope the vet sorts it out for her. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  14. Sounds awful for her, mine haven’t experienced this but a vet trip should be a priority, is she eating ok? Does she have a temperature? Could be any number of things, did the vet check for flu or bronchitis? Hope she gets better soon. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  15. As above, even at 3 months that’s a lot of pee in an hour, does she drink excessively? I’d take her to the vet, poor baby. She may be whimpering if she’s in pain or that she wants to be with you, she’s still only a baby and it’ll take time for her to settle in. Hope she’s ok Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  16. I’d do more research from a medical perspective, both of mine are intact and will be staying that way, it’s a personal choice but I will say that the advice vets and other animal professionals give is in favour of neutering purely to keep the number of unwanted dogs to a minimum, which I understand, but they don’t give you the info regarding the potential risks of neutering. No wonder he bit the person who grabbed him like that. I have 2 huskies and every single day on our walks we are met with growling, barking even teeth baring by other dogs. Other dogs, not all, but most where I live, displ
  17. I’ve seen some stupid things in my time but that video is the worst, poor furbaby! How’s he supposed to hear anything not to mention the pain the tape will cause when it’s ripped off. Sometimes it takes a while for ears to stand up, one of mine had a floppy ear until he was around 5 months. Had it stayed floppy then so be it but it should be the personality and the nature of your furbaby you love. As for cropping a dogs ears it’s cruel and needless.

    Hi, congrats on your new additions. It’s difficult to train a dog when it becomes fearful, with Queenie I would put a leash on her and exercise her so she’s a little tired then I would run through the back door with her into the house, so she has no time to think about what you want her to do, I’d do this multiple times during the day until she realises she has no need to fear. Once she’s inside give her lots of praise and a treat. It may sound abit out there but I’ve seen this work with a dog who was scared to go upstairs. Building up your bond with them both will lessen timidity, baby steps
  19. Huskies love to be with us, I’d start back to basics with feeding and training. With regards to peeing outside I took my 2 outside every 20 -30 mins and reward with lots of praise and a little treat when he pee’s, pee pads didn’t work for mine. I feed mine at the same time everyday morning and evenings, a routine is essential as they know what to expect and when, I also set time aside for training and fun time playing. I used safety gates to limit the rooms they could go in when they were pups, and when they were allowed in any of the rooms and they misbehaved I used time outs and allowed the
  20. Whilst shedding I rake them three times a day and I love my cordless dyson, I use it at least 3 times a day! Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  22. Hi, if you watch huskies playing together they look as tho they’re fighting, I’ve had a neighbour of mine who likes to watch my 2 ask me if I get scared when they’re fighting, I said that’s playing not fighting. If my 2 get a little carried away with dominance issues I’d use my distraction words ‘what’s this’ and they’d stop. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  23. Cai is 4 (feb 7th) and weighs 34kg and Luka blue will be 4 in April and weighs 40kg, both are big boys, not overweight tho, just big tall boys [emoji240][emoji240] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  24. As above, one of mine was at the vet on sat with an eye problem, the vet was very thorough but she did say that if his pupil didn’t return to normal within a day or two then further investigations would be necessary. He was sent home with an antibiotic cream. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
