  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. You could fit a whole sled team [emoji57] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  12. 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
  13. She's beautiful, I feel sorry for anyone with a predominantly white husky as the white on ours is a shade of beige most of the time [emoji23] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  14. That crazy husky face [emoji23] they would have such fun Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  15. Yep never used wipes on ours they generally clean their bits pretty well Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  16. Wait until yours turn 1 it's like the terrible 2's, tantrums, being naughty for the sake of it and just generally not listening [emoji28] then they come good again, except they never truly listen well they do but they choose to do whatever they want. There aren't many huskies here but there are a lot up for adoption and I can understand why. Once you figure each other out and have routine it'll be easier and you'll get the most from them Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  17. Diet is a highly discussed topic on the forum and I know the others will add some good advice. Personally I switched ours from the food given by the breeder to taste of the wild and she's still on it now (2 years old). I also mix other things in like Ziwipeak dry kibble which is 98% all natural proteins and sardines the ones from the shop in mineral water. I use https://www.petfoodreviews.com.au but there is one for outside of Australia can't remember what it was I'm sure someone else can advise. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app As for treats for puppies I used a combination of small amounts of cheese, peanut butter and ham. All of which she loves but also use dehydrated beef liver
  18. Welcome, ours has gotten out a few times and gets really excited to be free. Normally I bring out a frozen bone and that gets her running back. As others have said you've just got to make sure there are no weak points in your fencing and reduce the risk of them escaping. Unfortunately they don't do well on recall once escaped.

  19. If you really want to be sure of purity and their physical appearances you'll need to know their lineage. Our breeder gave us all this information on a booklet that showed their history and also made sure full health checks were undertaken including joint and hip checks. If you aren't certain on the breeder or the condition of the pups then steer clear. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  20. Welcome it's very challenging. I always retell the story of me coming home in the middle of summer to find poos on our ottamen in the living room. It's difficult at that age and it's very tiring. Stick with it and give her the best chance she can because they are very smart and once trained properly will be a great companion Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  21. I agree I use an undercoat rake, a bristle kind of brush that's got bobbly bits on the end and a mit that collects loose fur but all you really need is a rake. Stay away from furminators or anything that strips or cuts their fur as that will damage their coat Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  22. Welcome and good luck as it's very trying when they are young! Mine is still difficult but we wouldn't trade her for the world, they have such great personalities and it's been fun learning with each other. No stupid questions I'm still learning and everyone else here has varied experience so you're in the right place Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  23. Welcome you've got a nicely sized pack [emoji2] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  24. Welcome beautiful looking gang you have I'd love another husky or two but my wife not so much [emoji16] Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
  25. I agree they are fully grown around 1 year to 1.5 years and will fill out a bit from then on. Ours is just over 60lbs but consider her to be small considering some of the other huskies on this site. At 6 months she'd have been about the same weight as yours. I found her weight gradually increased from 8-15 months at a much slower less noticeable rate, I wouldn't get too caught up in what they weigh more importantly to make sure they are healthy with solid consistent poop Sent from my [device_name] using http://Husky Owners mobile app
