  1. As above for socialising....... what kind of vet advises euthanasia for a pup!! If you have noticed she’s nervous and is aggressive with it then I’d advise a behaviourist only because one of mine was the same. I socialised him from 10-12 weeks and he was a little nervous as a pup but didn’t start reacting with growls and raised hackles until around 6 months old. His behaviour caused a few issues as he’s s big boy and would lunge at some dogs who’d growl at him first, he was reactive. My other husky is the complete opposite, confident and loves all dogs and people so walking them both together
  2. So glad for you [emoji3] what a weight to be lifted for you, and great news for Marley! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  3. Pups chew a lot when they’re teething, a little like babies do, have a chew toy to hand so you can quickly give it to her if she starts to chew on something or someone she shouldn’t be. Praise her when she chews on the toy. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  4. Hi, if you’re feeding kibble you can still gives lamb ribs or beef bones, chicken wings etc, they like to chew on them and keeps them busy. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  9. Hi, sounds as tho she may be too hot, mine pant and pace and wait by the back door when they’re hot. Is she settling outside? Maybe she prefers to sleep outside for a while, one of mine does and comes in around 11.30 and then lies where there’s a draught. As long as she’s in good health and it’s safe for her to stay out for a while I wouldn’t worry. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  10. Hi, I’d avoid trying to pick him up especially as he’s 6 months old, not many like it anyway, I’d put his lead on him and say ‘let’s go’ and walk him down. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  14. Hi, he’s still young yet so he’ll chew on everything, particularly if left on his own for too long, as already mentioned it’s a sign of boredom. Try using a safety gate to keep him in a safe place, I still have mine at the kitchen door. Husky’s are renowned for selectively choosing when to listen, they’re independent thinkers and can be stubborn at times. At 8 months and still doing his business in the house it’s best to start again with the basics, take him out every 20-30 mins, even if he doesn’t need to go, lots of praise when he does it outside. If he’s doing it when you’re out and he’s h
  15. Mine are raw fed, salmon, chicken, beef, lamb steaks, lamb ribs, beef bones ( from Morrison’s) eggs, scrambled and raw, tuna in spring water, turkey, carrots, fruit, think that’s everything [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  16. Just picking up on your point of rascism in Wales. We live in mid wales, my family’s Irish and we’ve lived here for nearly 20 years. My youngest son has been schooled through the medium of welsh since he was 2, I speak a little but understand better and there are parts of Wales where the English aren’t as welcome but there’s a reason for that. As far back as 1847, reports were made into the state of education in Wales, it was reported that schools in Wales were inadequate and it concluded that the Welsh as a race were ‘ignorant’ ‘lazy’ and ‘immoral’ and that the main causes of this was continu
  17. The teeth look too close together and with it being curved on the end it may pull the fur out harshly. The rake I use has bigger gaps between each teeth, it pulls out fur that is already loose so it doesn’t hurt. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  18. Hi, she’s gorgeous! Love her husky ears [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  19. Lovely pic! It all depends on whether you want to crate train her or not, I didn’t so I’m not much help in that department. I took mine out every hour to pee during the day and night so I didn’t get much sleep for 2 weeks and I brought him upstairs with me at night, I slept with one eye open! Cai was 17 weeks old when I brought Luka blue home and they both slept in the kitchen with a safety gate at the door. With your pup being so young she may not settle on her own, if you put a crate in your bedroom or a dog bed she may settle in it to sleep but you’ll need to take her out to pee otherwise
  20. I started leaving them for 5 mins, going out of the house and coming back in, no fuss when leaving or returning, so as to normalise leaving them alone. Then I slowly built the time they were left, 5 mins to 10 etc and I did this several times a day, doing this also prevents separation anxiety. I can leave them safely now for up to 6-7 hours but it’s taken the best part of 18 months to achieve this. I also had a safety gate by the kitchen door to restrict access to all of the rooms until they behaved appropriately, and when they misbehaved I’d give them a time out and then bring them back int
  21. Very nice! Lots of room, my other half has bought one similar to yours, 5 seats and room in the back for furbabies........and very comfortable. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  22. Looks husky but maybe 4-6 weeks old and the ears are floppy at that age, definitely don’t play with them. Very cute by the way. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  23. My two grab each other by the throat when they’re playing but it doesn’t get out of hand. Some of this is natural behaviour, practising their skills for catching prey, husky’s play rough and can look aggressive when it isn’t. One of my neighbours likes to watch my 2 from her bedroom window and asked me if I’m scared when they’re fighting, I had to tell her that they were playing! I’d use distraction techniques or use a word they know that means they’ll receive something they like just to stop it before it gets out of hand. Humping is also a dominance ‘thing’ it sounds as tho your female is th
  24. She’s gorgeous! I didn’t crate train my 2, they hated it and people advised persistence but I knew my end game was to allow them to sleep wherever they chose. Maybe there’s a cold draught in the cupboard under the stairs, they do prefer it cooler. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
