  1. I've given up buying beds, they destroy them within minutes, they'll sleep on the settee in the front room for a while but they always go back on the floor, they seem to like sleeping on the rug more. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  2. My vote goes to Storm, Mishka and Sheka, all the pics are lovely, but the husky on top of the settee makes the difference. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  4. Thankyou for that, I haven't seen any as big as Luka before and he's still growing! Good to know he's not on his own, people see him and are abit wary prob due to his size, he's such a softie tho. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners

  6. I'm having a few doubts about my grey, Luka, he's huge, over 40kg, not overweight at all. Some think he's crossed with a malamute, some think he's crossed with GSD, it doesn't matter to me, I love his nature and he's perfect as he is. I'm having a DNA test done, not for any reason other than I want to know for sure. Huskies, malamutes, GSD's they're all gorgeous. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  7. My two love raw lamb bones, very crunchy! Will try them on chicken wings for a change. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  8. I fail to see how 2 such different breeds of dog can 'create a new breed', AND then charge an arm and a leg for them. I wonder whether the breeders have stopped and thought just for a minute about the possible health issues these dogs may suffer with. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  9. If you google images of malamutes and huskies you'll see visible differences, malamutes have bigger heads, different size etc, I can never walk my two without at least 3 people asking questions about what breed are they is the grey a malamute, are they full husky and it goes on and on..... one day I might just answer someone and say that they are guinea pigs! Try not to let other people give you doubts. Looks full husky to me. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  10. Handsome boy, papers would prove 100%, some look mixed even when they're not, not all husky's look the same, their masks may be similar but fur, size, and build all vary and then you have the constant questions from passers by asking if he's full husky. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  11. The vets, could be an infection that needs treatment to clear it up. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  12. My two eat grass, not very often, they're not sick either, but the day after they've eaten some it's in their stools. I prefer them not to eat the grass when we're on a walk for same reasons as above so I give them lettuce, Cai eats it, Luka's not fussed. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  13. Definitely agree with checking the treats, both of mine used to get very loose stools with certain treats. Both of mine like to munch on raw lamb bones, these firm stools up too, works for mine. Cai's stools were up and down for a long time, so after trial and error and elimination, feeding him chicken and salmon for his main meal with a dry mixer has worked for him, no loose stools at all. He also enjoys raspberries, blueberries, cheese eggs etc and natural treats. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  14. Luka loves doing this, he brings the ball back every time I say 'bring it back,' Cai on the other hand chases after it just so Luka can't get it and when he gets it he teases Luka with it, Cai never brings it back. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  15. Hi, I have 2 that I've had since they were 8 weeks old, I brought Cai home first and then 9 weeks later I brought Luka home. Some say get one first and train him/her to the point where you're happy. I think it's a personal choice whether you have a gap before having another, but I would say to make time to train separately as well as together. It is a lot of hard work when you have double trouble, but if you're fully prepared for the amount of work involved, it'll work. Good luck whatever you decide to do.

  16. My two love blueberries and raspberries! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  17. Now is the age to really work on training to walk without pulling, as above really, they're so eager to please you at this age. Once prey drive kicks in the pulling may change, hopefully how you train her now will stick with her. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  18. Hi, I have two boys, a red and a grey, Cai, my red is 14 months and Luka is 12 months. Cai's fur was coarse from a young age and Luka's was baby soft, they're all different. Every time I'd take them out for a walk I'd have well meaning people offering me all kinds of facts and opinions, every person seemed to be a husky expert! Their fur changes through summer and winter, Cai's fur is darker, but lighter in some places too. I've been asked if Luka is crossed with GSD, is he a malamute, is he a timber wolf, it seems people can't resist asking questions about Husky's, try not to let it bother
  19. There is something called restraint frustration in relation to a dog seeing,but not reaching, his objective because of being fenced in, a fence around the garden, it can also lead to COCD, canine obsessive compulsive disorder and it is stress related. I'm not a dog specialist and it may not even be this but it's worth doing abit of research for your dogs sake. Hope you find some answers. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  20. Just to add, smacking a dog in any way to try to stop it misbehaving Is a lazy way of discipline, it doesn't work long term. An owner who loves their dog couldn't possibly want to hurt him/her. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  21. I had the same problem with biting but I put it down to teething when they were very young, I gave mine frozen carrots, I firmly believe in distraction techniques with Husky's, short attention span! Physically punishing a dog is a sign the owner has lost control, training is essential to promote the behaviour that you want and this takes time and patience. Turning your back and ignoring works with mine, but I always say no then turn my back, if he carries on then I give him a time out. Consistency is key when training, I have two boys and they can be a handful but they know the boundaries now
  22. Looks like a lot of fun! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  23. Everything you do with Loki, very much depends on how Barnaby reacts to him, it is recommended to introduce them outside of the home first because after all it is Barnaby's territory, so to speak. You'll be able to gauge what measures to put into place, feeding, sleeping arrangements etc once they're in the home together. I had to keep an eye on mine when they were playing together for a while as Cai was much bigger. You learn as you go along, Barnaby sounds like a lovely dog, but it's always good to think about possible situations that may arise between them. Sent from my iPhone using Husk
