    Sad

    Came across this very sad and not new news I've read of a few dogs passing away during transportation https://www.news.com.au/travel/travel-updates/incidents/husky-dies-in-cargo-hold-of-air-franceklm-plane-after-running-out-of-oxygen-during-11hour-flight/news-story/f9b016b9343bbb061905f6ba20f1d36b Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  2. Ours is a real pain when washing I normally just drop her off at the groomer and let them deal with her. Last time I was there I stayed and just let her luck a frozen peanut butter Kong which eased the noise and fuss. I liken the noise to a dying seagull [emoji23] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  3. Welcome people always think it's cruel here in Australia to have a husky because it can be quite hot but they manage and mine comes from a long line of huskies bred here. Generally if they drink too much they just vomit so without running pathology tests on the deceased dog you wouldn't know for sure. As for the husky drinking lots it could be from food intake which is high in sodium. Ours at times will drink a lot at one time or at the park would drink more water than other similarly active dogs Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  4. Ours is 2.5 and much the same as others have said. They're very independent dogs, she respects my wife more which is interesting because I walk her and spend more time with her. You'll learn that they show their love in different ways to other dogs. Ours never really showed much care until 1/1.5 and she comes and lays near us and wants to be patted on her belly when she's laying Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  5. Glad to hear he's recovering and it's sweet the doggies were so helpful in this process. I've also noticed photos not showing up through the app Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  6. I have to lift Harlow who's now 2 into the back of my Ute because it's really high and she can't jump in. She usually lays down and refuses to let me lift her. She generally doesn't like being touched so can understand her dislike of being picked up as Rachael said Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  7. Yep ours has been going since before Christmas. This morning on our walk I was clawing at her back legs pulling massive clumps off her. Unfortunately can't get to our groomer until end of February but try and rake her a bit at home Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  8. We haven't crate trained ours properly, she travels in my Ute in a crate with trips up to 3 hours long. Others on here have crate trained and would be best to advise. It sounds like you have the right idea though and not forcing her in or keeping her in there for long periods. Feeding in the crate and treating/rewarding can make it easier too Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  9. She's beautiful looks like lots of trouble my girl has that naughty look too Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  10. The sleep deprivation I don't miss but my wife said it's good practice for when we have kids. They are very cute and fun at this stage. Persist with routine at night as they learn very quickly. It gets better, ours was a fast learner and slept through the night after about a week and had no disturbances Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  11. Politics is always a sure fire way to get debate on a forum, let's talk about gun control [emoji57] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  12. That's why you don't use furminators because it cuts their fur and damages their coat. Most groomers don't understand double coated breeds. I take mine to a groomer who specialises in huskies and understands the breed luckily as mine is a psycho [emoji28] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  13. I think you'll find most decent food brands have had recalls. Taste of the wild has also had recalls for heavy metals Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  14. You could fit a whole sled team [emoji57] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  15. I feed taste of the wild which is a fairly good kibble. If they are off the food just top it with something they like. I used to top with a bit of olive oil now sardines. She will eat the bowl clean. I'm sure I'll need to change again soon but keep the same kibble base Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
