  1. When I first brought Luka home, Cai stayed with a friend for the weekend and their first meet was in the local park and it went really well, Cai was protective of Luka and they both slept upstairs with me for about a week and they've slept in the kitchen ever since, their choice, it's cooler. We've had our problems but they do get in well, I think mainly because Cai accepted him easily. Training is key to their behaviour, but done with lots and lots of praise, I ignore the bad as long as it's not detrimental to either of them, Husky's love to be busy and occupied, boredom is the enemy!

  2. Hi, gorgeous boys! I can only tell you about my experience, I have 2 boys, one is 14 months old and the other is 12 months, I've had both since 8 weeks and I'm loving every minute with them. I only had a gap of 8 weeks before we brought Luka home, In hindsight I should have waited a little longer. I'd say feeding was a little problematic for a while as Cai tried to take Luka's food, even though he didn't eat it, so I fed them in separate areas, that's worked well and they now eat in the same room but apart. There was a little bullying for a while, Cai constantly showing Luka who was boss, as L

    Help

    Not sure about the crying, maybe he just wants to run, one of mine be makes a funny sound if I stop to talk to someone, he just wants to crack on walking. Have you thought about a head harness to help control his pulling, indi-dog have some nice designs. I don't walk my two without them on, it's much safer for them and pain free walking for you.

  4. He's gorgeous! Just think of the fun he'd have with yours, hope you get to take him home. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  5. If it was a flea bite then she could have had an allergic reaction which can trigger intense itching, hair loss and skin infections, she needs to see the vet as if left can get nasty. Hope she'll be ok. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  6. They're fed apart as Cai was abit of a bully to Luka when he was younger, Luka's bigger than him now so no bullying. The last walk is at 7.30 and they're calm when we get home and they sleep at about 8.30 till 5.30 am. It's after their tea before last walk, Cai is 14 months and Luka is 12 months. Cai will do this for about another week and then it stops for a while. Can't say they're naughty, Cai trying to mate (for want of a better word) is the only time they fight, no injuries to either of them I'm glad to say. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  7. For the past week or so after they've eaten their evening meal Cai is trying to 'get on' Luka any way he can, Luka won't have any of it and reacts aggressively, before you can blink, a fight ensues. I'm separating them after they've eaten as Cai is only trying it on in the evening, and other suggestions? Neither of them have been neutered, would this help? I'm not interested in breeding, but I have heard that if you do this when they're young it can lead to behavioural problems later on. Has anyone had a similar problem?

  8. Dogs are pregnant between 58-68 days, so by now she'd be nearly due if she was pregnant. You would have noticed nipples swelling, maybe she'd have gone off her food, not wanting to walk as much etc. If you're thinking of breeding professional vet advice is a necessity for the welfare of your dog and any future pups.

  9. I had really sore elbows and wrists because of the pulling, was taking the joy out of the walk, and then head harnesses, love them! I've tried a couple of non pull harnesses but didn't have much joy, I even invested in a metal shock absorber to put on the lead, damaged one of my nails badly when it got caught in it.

  10. Prob will pull less as they get abit older, I'll try with and without, I have Visions of them running and I'm like a balloon in the air trailing behind. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  11. I have head harnesses and they still pull a little, major difference walking them with on tho, just wondered whether they pull as much on the belt. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  12. Just thinking ahead now, as I've purchased a walking belt has anyone found the need to put head harnesses on as well, but on a lead and holding it separately when using the walking belt. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  13. An extra thought, I've heard Apple cider vinegar for dogs can help bathing the flea bitten skin if you're into natural remedies. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  14. It could be hypersensitivity to the flea saliva, prob trip to the vets or she could damage it more with scratching. Looks nasty. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app

  16. Hi, what a cutie! One of mine, Luka was very light grey with a darker stripe now he's a lot darker all over and he's nearly 12 months old. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  17. Thanks, I'll try that next time. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  18. I've just purchased a walking belt from indi dog and didn't know how to apply the discount, I'll be making future purchases there's some great stuff on there, so I'll get to the point now, do you use a specific code to get it? Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  19. There's no quick fix solution, it really is time, patience and lots of love. It sounds like he's actively seeking your attention, good or bad, I turned my back and ignored bad behaviour and I'd give them a time out, he's still very young but he will calm down, It's about establishing boundaries, he will learn but it takes time. My two sleep in the kitchen without a crate and it's worked, I have a safety gate so they can't get up to mischief. It can feel as though you're running out of options but persevere with him it will click into place. I ignored the bad and lots of praise for the good, t

  24. Thank you. I've had both since they were 8 weeks old, I'm fortunate as I'm at home with them training is ongoing most of the day. Cai was on his own for 8 weeks before Luka came so he had all of my attention, he was potty trained within the week and he's a quick learner, he likes to learn new things, boredom is the enemy! Luka took about 2 weeks to potty train with the odd accident. He's the complete opposite of Cai, abit timid and he follows and copies Cai with everything, so in some ways training has been easier as Cai picks things up straight away and Luka copies. I do some training separat
  25. Hello everyone, I've been posting and I've not introduced ourselves properly..... My name is Janine and I have 2 gorgeous boys, Cai, my red who is 14 months old next month and Luka blue, just Luka, who is 12 months next month also. I've waited a long time for my fur babies and I'm enjoying every minute of it, my goal for winter is to be running them on a dry land rig. At the moment I'm teaching commands and walking with ganglines, it's great fun and I can't wait for winter. Thank you to everyone for all of your invaluable advice, it's great to talk with people who share a common goal, to kee
