  1. Run fast.......run free Neeka, very sorry for your loss. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  2. Hi, he’s a beauty, sounds as tho he’s found a happy home, at last. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  3. It really is about sticking to one method, I took mine out every 30 mins, reward with lots of praise and a treat when they pee or poop, lots of patience is required and love, Apollo will pick up on the frustration which will set him back. Has he seen a vet to make sure there isn’t a medical issue? Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  4. Love my Indi dog walking belt, you can customise as well. Very important to adhere to walking times in relation to age, at 8 weeks a 10 min walk is enough but you can do it multiple times in the day. Also not to walk the hottest time of the day now it’s getting warmer, it’s useful to take water to drink as your pup gets older especially if you go on long walks.

  5. A tired husky is a well behaved husky, plenty of exercise, playing games together etc. Boredom is usually the culprit when they become destructive. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  6. As above, ages are usually on the food packaging, I switched to raw at 6 months. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  8. Very sorry for your loss, run fast Lunar......run free.... Marley is grieving and it will take time but try doing things to take his mind off it, other than that I don’t know what to suggest. Hope you’re ok. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  9. Definitely train to drop and leave it, hands coming towards a dog can be seen as aggressive so a dog will react, occasionally one of mine will growl if a person puts their hands near his head to stroke him. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  10. I took mine out every 30 mins or so and at night, no fun at 3 in the morning [emoji849] sometimes they’d do something other times not, I did this religiously with both of mine, lots of praise when they go outside to pee. I think it worked as Cai was trained in just over 2 weeks and Lula blue took nearly 4 weeks. You need to be consistent and as pups they can’t hold it for long. Good luck !

  11. As above, husky’s like to be with us than away from us so separation anxiety could be the issue and boredom. If I’m going out for a few hours I take them for an extra long walk and leave them with a lamb bone to chew on, i can leave them for 5-6 hours without any issues. It took around 12 months of training to achieve this, as for the garden, I slabbed mine and I’ve now put fake grass down. Husky’s are notorious diggers and will destroy when they’re bored.

  12. I’d recommend a behaviourist rather than a trainer, if you’ve tried the other methods with no success I’d make an appt. Husky’s are quite mouthy and she’s still young, I’d have a lead at the ready and at the first sign of her trying to bite say ah ah and put the lead on her and walk her out to another room for a time out and take the lead off her. If she tries to bite again when you bring her back then put the lead on her and take her out again, do this every time and hopefully she’ll get the message, it won’t change overnight, patience and persistence with lots of love and they do pick up on
  13. Pretty much as everyone has said, husky’s come to you when they want to not when you ask. My 2 love cuddles and will cuddle up to me on the settee and the bed, not so much as pups but they’re both 3 now and I’ve noticed a change as they’ve got older, maybe yours will to.

  14. As above, I used to take my 2 out every 30 mins as pups, even if they didn’t do anything, praise him when he does his pee and poop outside, they love praise. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  15. Hi, just wondering which cbd you use on your joint pain, there’s so many to choose from, it’s a minefield. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  16. One of mine loves to cuddle, the closer the better, if he can’t sit on me or next to me he lies across my feet, he’s so heavy [emoji849] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  17. A behaviourist is your best option, i used one for one of mine, great results, whatever training is advised you will need to carry on with it yourself and it does take time but don’t give up, once shadow realises she has new behaviours to learn I think you’ll be surprised by how quickly she’ll learn. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  18. I like to buy old furniture and give it a new lease of life, sanding it down, oiling it or painting it, whatever it needs. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  19. What a truly sad day that’ll be when you have to make that decision. How wonderful you’ve shared 14 years with Lunar, I hope I’m lucky enough to have as many with my 2. Lots of hugs for Lunar [emoji8] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

    Not all vets know about husky’s needs, they’re not a regular dog so advice given, even from a professional isn’t always correct, we assume it is because they’re supposed to know answers to our questions. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  21. Happy 1st birthday!!!! [emoji512][emoji513]🧁 and no rocks, just cake for you 2 [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  22. I wouldn’t interfere with his prey hunting, it’s normal, the growl is a warning and if you still pull him away then he’ll bite. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  23. Happy belated birthday Armani! [emoji512][emoji509] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  24. It’s all new for him and he needs to readjust, it can take time. I’d take him out for 10-15 mins regularly throughout the day to get him used to his new surroundings, praise him when he’s walking nicely and not trying to escape. Don’t overload him with long walks and lots of people, gradually build up the time you walk him. Hope it works for you both. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  25. Are her sinuses ok? Any issues with her teeth? It could be a fungal infection, if it’s allergies the mucus is usually clear and not green or smelly. Hope she’ll be ok. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
