  1. I had a male GSD when I was younger and I now have 2 husky boys, no issues with fighting or dominance now, Luka blue is more than capable of standing up for himself but Cai is the boss, they are very close. I think you gravitate towards what you know, my first was a male and I didn’t consider a female when I was looking for my pups, I think you’d have to look at how the 2 females would behave around a male, and when you first introduce them do it on neutral ground. Most dogs will get on, it’s important to get the introductions right. Good luck with whatever you choose. Sent from my iPhone u
  2. Wishing you, your families and fur babies a very happy, chilled out, slightly drunk Christmas. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners mobile app
  3. Hi, congratulations on your new addition, I’ve always fed mine after, but that’s the routine I set early on so they’re used to it now. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  4. It could be something tiny stuck in his trachea, you’ve done the right thing by going to the vets, there’s not a lot more you can do. The reverse sneeze sounds worrying if you don’t know what it is, when it happens it sounds as tho they’re having an asthma attack. The other thought I had was kennel cough but if the vet has ruled everything out, maybe it will go in time. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  5. I’ve loved every minute despite the issues, they are so worth the effort required to train them, once you have that bond with them theres no feeling like it. I had my hip replaced 2 weeks ago and they have been fantastic, they’re careful when they walk by me as I’m on crutches, there’s no silly playing by me, they’re not leaving me at night as I’m sleeping downstairs. They know I’m not at my best at the moment and their behaviour is impeccable, it does help that I’m at home with them. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  6. Lamb bones kept mine occupied and still do, before I started to give them the bones I was forever watching what they’d be looking to destroy. I came back from town one afternoon when they were younger to find they’d completely destroyed the waste pipe that runs from the kitchen to the outside grid, so when my washing machine emptied it ran all over the garden and flooded it at the bottom.

  7. They are a picture of innocence when they’re that young! I will advise lots of research, in a few months when the prey drive kicks in, the fun begins! Enjoy your pup [emoji3] Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  8. Thank goodness the peach pit is out of her stomach, the chewing everything they see does get easier as they mature. Cai was worse for destroying than Luka blue and we had to have eyes in the back of our heads when they were younger. I love gardening and had some gorgeous plants in my back garden.........not for long! The pair of them dug everything up apart from one tree so we decided to slab all of the garden, we were fed up of the muddy digging, especially when it rained. We’ve recently put fake grass down and they love it, it’s easy to clean and for me I love to see colour in a garden, I’ve
  9. Oops, sorry husky daddy. Awww she’s very cute, when they’re pups their ears look too big for them, they have to grow into them, my 2 used to remind me master Yoda from the Star Wars films. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners

  11. I feel for you, I had a similar issue with one of my boys Luka blue, I saw a behaviourist as my training didn’t work, she gave me some great advice. On a walk carry some tiny treats with you and when a dog approaches and your boy starts to get excited scatter some treats to the side of you in a grassy area if you can and let him find them, it’s purely a distraction technique and keeps your boy from becoming too excited. You could also turn around and walk in the opposite direction if he’s too excited, the behaviourist explained that once they reach a certain point of excitement it becomes too
  12. I’d love another pup, family said noooooo. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  13. Congratulations new husky mummy [emoji240][emoji3] Did the breeder tell you which food he was feeding the pups, she’ll need to stay on the same food as sudden food changes will give her diarrhoea. If you decide to change what you’re feeding her just add a little of the new food into the old until you’ve made the switch. You’re in for a ride, I miss the puppy days.

  14. My friend’s husky had pups 2 years ago and she lost a lot of fur once the pups were born, it’s normal as long as there are no other symptoms that may indicate health issues. 6 months after the pups were born she was back to normal, her fur had grown back and she looked great, still does.

  15. Could the breeder send you weekly videos so you’re able to see the changes, they change so much in the first few months, maybe that will help you decide. The nose may change it may not and if you’re able to watch how the pups interact with each other then I’d take that into consideration aswell. I’d also recommend doing a lot of research on husky’s before committing to a pup. Husky’s are an amazing breed but need a lot of time and commitment to training, I’m only saying this as they are visually stunning and their looks draw you in, but so many end up in rescues because of how demanding they c
  16. Hi, I’ve bought the LG PK3 XBOOM GO waterproof Bluetooth Portable Speaker for my partner, it’s part of his Xmas present so he hasn’t used it yet, all of the reviews were great and it was given 5 stars, that’s enough for me to buy it, there’s a lot of choice out there but this was one of a few that had no negatives.

  17. I’ve been reading the dogs naturally magazines and there’s some great info regarding an holistic approach to treating doggie health issues, some of that crap the vets give our furbabies isn’t always the best option. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  18. As Emma said, personality is the most important factor when choosing your pup, obviously your eyes will be drawn to the look of a pup but I’d advise going to see them before you make a choice, once you see them and interact with them you’ll definitely know which one you want.

  19. I’d find another vet, how can they prescribe pills if they don’t know what the allergies are, sounds like he didn’t want to put the effort in to eliminate the allergies. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  20. Not all husky’s from the same litter will look the same, they go through many changes until they reach maturity at around 12 -24 months. Their coats will change colour and their snouts will develop, some husky’s have longer snouts than others. Sent from my iPad using Husky Owners
  21. Really hoping Marley gets a clean bill of health, poor baby. [emoji173]️ I’m of the same opinion when it comes to raw v kibble, I know it’s a personal choice how we feed our fur babies, my 2 get super excited every meal time, they literally jump up and down when they’re waiting.

  22. I’d push, it’s for the good of your furbabies. Mine went to the vets for their 3 monthly fleeing and worming and they were weighed, the vet remarked on how good they looked, no issues with teeth, gums, weight, eyes and remarked on how shiny their fur was, she then asked me what am I feeding them, I thought to myself, here we go, so I said raw, her attitude changed straight away, she made me feel as tho I’m doing something wrong, but as I walked out, to my left the shelves are full of bags of kibble. Last year a friend of mine was at the vets with her 1 year old husky, she was back and forth o
  23. Luka blue used to push his nose up into us when he wanted something, to stop it progressing I used ‘settle’. The first sign of pushing I’d say ‘settle’ and as soon as he sat nicely he’d have a tiny treat. I use settle in all situations with him now and he sits down and waits.

  24. Great that it’s clearing up [emoji3] the vets that I have come across don’t seem to know much about ZRD, it’s always best to check with a vet but ZRD causes misery for our furbabies, it’s a silent killer. Sent from my iPhone using Husky Owners
  25. I give my 2 lamb ribs and they last all of 2 seconds! My local butcher saves me small/medium lamb knuckle, they’re rounded and I’ve never had teeth issues. Giving them the bones keeps them out of mischief, once they’ve chewed it they’ll sit by it for a while but I always bin them at the end of the day so there’s no issues.
