  1. I think Paul's comment was in reference to the jacket Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  2. Ours digs the hole and lays in it even in winter [emoji23] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  3. Waste of money they don't cover parts of a dog's body that actually needs to be cooled anyway. We get temps in summer of 40degree Celsius and ours is fine she sleeps a lot more than usual but have a cooling mat which she never lays on anyway prefers cool concrete or tiles. I think it's a bit of a gimmick Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  4. Hi Zena we just got the news today and they are carrying out the surgery as I type this to operate on ours. How'd you go with the recovery as I'm worried it's going to be impossible to stop her from walking around on it and even the logistics of going toilet are a concern for me Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  5. at 9 months he's probably doing too much actually. " A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e. 15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc. Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer. " You can risk long term injury or issues with their growth if you over exercise at that age. I think though what you have is pretty typical husky behaviour and you need to secure your yard. Mental stimulation is the key and target training which others on here can tell you more about.
  6. She's stunning thought the long fur would stay but she is really a good looking dog! Our's also lost some colouring around her face when she turned 1 or there abouts it's quite incredible looking back at photos of them
  7. I'd be wary of feeding cheese as it's generally high in fat and can cause stomach upset. As wolfpup above has stated it's important to ensure they are on a balanced diet. Mine gets 150 grams kibble in the morning and 150grams kibble at night with a tin of sardines in springwater. Occasionally I'll top with a good quality olive oil. Ensuring the kibble is high in protein with the main ingredient being meat and with less fillers (avoid pea and potato fillers, they aren't bad but they definitely aren't needed or ideal). Keep his diet simple that should hopefully help with the farting and stomach upset. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  8. It's unfortunately the same as shops selling cigarettes, everyone knows they are harmful even in low/incidental exposure but doesn't mean they can't sell the shit. It is great that you are so proactive and altering the appropriate authorities but as they say someone else to blame or some other departments problem no one wants to know [emoji849] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  9. Came across this article and good advice that we all preach. The poor dogs though[emoji17] Luckily these breeds are not readily available here so less common but still the number up for adoption is quite alarming. https://www.thesun.co.uk/fabulous/8916074/game-of-thrones-abandoned-pet-wolf-dogs-are-on-the-rise-thanks-to-hit-series-game-of-thrones/ Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  10. When we camp and sleep in the tent I just keep Harlow in the tent she sleeps at our feet. If we sleep in the back of the ute I lift her in and again sleeps at our feet. If we stay on the farm it has a caravan so she sleeps on the floor near our bed. She's not crate trained but does travel in the crate without issues just doesn't like sleeping in it. At site I've made a steel wire plastic coated 20m line that can be tied to a tree, my ute or something very strong Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  11. We've got hardwood floors so our $99 hoover works just fine [emoji28] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app

    So sorry for your loss I can't imagine how painful this must be and poor Marley. No idea what you could do to help him [emoji20] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  13. We transitioned off the breeder food (royal canine) after 2 weeks onto taste of the wild for puppies up until around 8 months then switched to normal taste of the wild so it wasn't a drastic change and she seemed to be fine with the switch. We did struggle to ensure she had a solid poop for a while but that was due to over feeding so had to constantly weigh what we were feeding.

  14. Ours whimpers every morning before we go walking, or when people come over. She also sometimes whimpers when in the crate in the back of of my ute. I think it's an impatient thing she does. You could try giving a long lasting treat to help positive reinforcement for when in the car like a kong with peanut butter or beef ears etc. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  15. Welcome! Ours was difficult to train as well sometimes she'd go on the potty pad and other times she'd stare at us as she pees on her own bed (this happened a lot). She eventually used to poop on our spare sofa (luckily it was leather) every day for a while. Think by about 6-7 months it eventually clicked and she just got it one day and went on the lawn, we've since moved house and had no issues she just gets where is and isn't appropriate to go toilet. He will get there keep it consistent and when he goes in the right spot lots of praise and reward Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
