  1. He's 11 months now, should he be maintaining a steady weight now? Cai has put on 3kg in last 3 months and Luka a little more than that. Luka is just bigger. Your advice is better than google, thanks x Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  2. I've measure from his shoulder to his paw and he's 27", my other half thinks there could be a mal somewhere way back. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  3. Thanks, the vet was happy with him, he's not fat at all but he's big! I know sibes aren't that tall but Luka is and he gets plenty of exercise! His mum was tall and long and he was the biggest pup, one of 9! I'll check him against that later. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  4. A trip to the vets for their 3 monthly flee and worming tabs and Cai is 34kg and Luka is 41kg! Will I need to take weight into consideration when I'm training with them? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  5. I had a similar problem, the only solution for me was to slab my garden entirely and I got rid of everything that was a possible danger, I lost all of my lovely plants and trees, decorative stones and lights, they were all chew toys for them, but it's a small price to pay for the possible dangers to Cai and Luka. Positive reinforcement works well to. Good luck! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  6. That's just plain wrong, what is wrong with people. Husky blow out fur has to be warmer than coyote. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  7. Is that why they're so expensive, wonder why husky fur hasn't been considered, after all they're used to arctic conditions so it makes sense it'd keep you warm. I wonder whether the Chukchi ever used it for anything. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  8. The more I think about it, I'd wear a jumper made from the fur, or even stuffing for pillows or quilts........[emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  9. My son read the post about the fur and thought I was saying husky fur coat, just to clarify I meant a coat from the blow out fur! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  10. Love that! Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  11. There's got to be a market for the mountain of fur collectively, if you can sell a bag made out of a snake or a pair of crocodile shoes, imagine a coat made out of husky fur........... just kidding! [emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  12. I thought about asking a local lady to knit me a scarf but does it have to be treated? I've a black bin bag full, it's too nice to put in the bin. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  13. I put a little out for the birds nesting, just wondered if there's anything else it could be used for. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  14. I think I'll be doing more command training and concentrate on getting this right for a while, baby steps, remind myself! I don't want to rush them into anything before they're ready. There's a lot for me to learn as well, but it's great getting all of the advice as it's coming together in my head the things I need to consider, the weather, places to cycle for safety, what I need to take with me, thanks to all!

  15. Wow, i think you've covered everything there, a great help! I'm ordering what I need next week and I'm planning to suit up the boys, (Cai and Luka) and practice commands on foot, on the cooler nights I plan to run Cai with my bicycle, practicing commands and then with Luka, he'll need more as he's easily distracted. Once I get going on the bike with them, how long should I do to begin with and do I need to walk him before the bike run as a warm up? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  16. We're away for the whole week. Will be looking out for October camp after the summer. I've spent the last couple of hours looking on different sites for equipment that I'll need to buy and it's a little confusing as a first timer knowing what's absolutely necessary from what's not.

  17. Great, thank you. Holland, very nice. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  18. I received an email regarding the camp but we're in Spain for a wedding, I know where I'd rather be! Thanks for asking. Is there more than one camp a year? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  19. Great advice, thank you. I had a basket muzzle for Luka, he's 6 stone and very powerful, as he became very ill after eating something off the ground when walking when he was younger, he hated it and constantly shook his head to try and remove it, I persevered with it and on a walk one day Cai pulled it off! I live in mid-Wales and there are quite a few husky owners but nothing is ever arranged to meet and greet. I'd be interested in the leads, when you're ready. Beautiful pic! Which walking harness do you recommend? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  20. I can't wait to get going reading all of your advice, but I'm taking baby steps, teaching the commands first, I'm using them on walks and my two boys (human) are using them, it's going really well. Question, when the time comes should I train them separately on the scooter or together? Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app I have another question relating to Luka, my youngest, 10 months, he was a little nervous when he was younger around other dogs but never aggressive, this last couple of months he's started growling if another dog passes by and his fur is raised, no teeth showi
  21. Mine hug up to the fridge freezer and I mean hug, it's a full body up on it. I bought a paddling pool last summer and they drank the water but wouldn't go in it, funny tho as we went to a friends barbecue and Cai was chasing around with a friends whippet and then decided to plonk himself in their fish pond which had a protective netting over the top of it, they weren't happy, but Cai was.

  22. My two would chew on anything they could get their teeth into in the beginning, it's natural for them, like a teething baby does. It takes patience but give them an alternative, they soon learn what's out of bounds, never scold them as chewing is normal, just not household items. I gave them frozen carrots or a kong with a little peanut butter and froze it, this will keep them occupied. A bored husky is a destructive husky, distraction and lots of praise works with my two, they are eager to learn, play games with chew toys. I've been doing this for the last 10 months and I've had no damage in
  23. Thanks, always have my bag with treats and wipes etc, they automatically sit for treats. Will try some tricks later. Funny you mention distraction as I have 2 boys ( human) one is autistic with ADHD and my youngest is autistic (asperger). Cai and Luka remind me of my son with ADHD, the principles I've used parenting him I've tailored for Cai and Luka, distraction distraction distraction works like a charm for all! I'm not saying Cai and Luka have ADHD but there are some behavioural similarities, so I find managing them part of a regular day. They are an amazing breed and I'm looking forward
  24. What a difference commands make on a walk, a very enjoyable hour and 20 mins this morning! I took Cai and Luka and to my surprise Luka listened, understood and put into practice. I used on by and he only stopped twice, it's usually in double figures. It's exciting watching them work together. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
  25. Cai is a quick learner, I noticed the difference walking him when I used 'on by' as he wants to sniff everything, he looks at me for instruction a lot, Luka is a little slower with learning, not because he's dull, his only concern is food. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners mobile app
