  1. Sometimes maybe but not all the time. My mixed breed Bear had terrible separation anxiety for almost a year. It would start when we began to get up. She’d start pacing the house, panting and in the end drooling a bit too. When we left (even for a very short period ) she’d poop a lot, Tare up anything she could find and be exhausted by the stress. It took months of work to help her overcome it but eventually she did and now she’s relaxed when we leave and content in herself. [emoji1360]

    I said rare not that it doesn't happen. It's a very rare thing in Siberian Huskies to have separation anxiety. They usually just want our attention. I have three rescued huskies from bad circumstances and they don't seem to care to much at all. [emoji6]

  2. Markle, my husky has no idea how to play with toys. I’ve tried tugs, balls, things you throw and a toy to hide treats in, she takes no interest at all. She will run after a ball but when she reaches it, she leaves it. The only toy she played with was one that squeaked and I read that it’s not a good idea for a husky to play with squeaky toys for obvious reasons. She won’t engage at all, any tips? She’s 6 and I’m assuming previous owners never engaged in playing with her.

    Leave her alone and walk away or take your leash put it on her and run her. The objective is to make them tired. If she doesn't want to play with a toy oh well at least she is tired and wore out [emoji16]

  3. My very first dog was a Siberian husky. Her name is Maliki and I had a cat named Cinnie. Cinnie is just like your cat which will be perfect. The horror stories I always hear are about cats that run and I have one that does that also almost been food twice.
    They can be a pain in the butt to change but they are also super smart it's all about getting in their heads.
    The leash thing I have almost all of mine trained off leash using them for agility you don't use a leash and the arena is open. It can be done it's a lot of work and constantly making sure they are tired so it's not impossible. They have I can do whatever I want attitude but they are breed to think for themeselves on long ice covered trail rides. If you want a husky as your first dog just see how much time you have in your schedule and make a schedule for them to follow to the T. It's not impossible it's just a royal pain.

  4. I think people confuse a dog wanting attention with a dog that has separation anxiety. Separation Anxiety is a very rare thing in huskies as they don't need us. She might not like you leaving the room but that doesn't mean she has separation anxiety. I would just leave the room and ignore her. Could you imagine if I went back to all eleven of my huskies Everytime they whined and called it separation anxiety. Get her a good toy or toys change them out daily add a treat and ignore her

  5. It's not uncommon for huskies to change colors as they age. When they are 4-5 months their puppy fur starts coming out either making them darker or lighter. As they age it can also change colors usually black and white stays black and white maybe with a little more grey or silver in the coat. Any other color but white of course can change a lot over time.

  7. She is beautiful. Eight hours a day is a long time for a puppy to be alone. The whining in the kennel could be for going outside or she wants attention. Huskies are hard headed but they usually only whine if they really need something. If you get home around 6 pm at night make a good hour to play with her alone before you go to school get up earlier and play with her take her out. That will help. Two hours a day for a none working husky is plenty of play time. Make sure to train her.

  8. If she has played, been to restroom, eaten and she is still whining I in the crate completely ignore her.
    I would suggest ignoring it she wants your attention that's why she is doing it. She knows you will get up and take her out or do something with her. Completely ignore her [emoji4]

  9. I would stick the three month old in the crate and walk away. Put toys in there make sure they are easily cleaned off because there will be accidents so be prepared. Take him out every couple hours makes sure he is tired.
    My 9 month old Siku is fully kennel trained. Will be running free in the house at ten months with the others.
    Huskies are a whole new world.
    Your wasting your money on puppy pads and soon it will be your carpet or room that will need new things. Crates are the best option they are pretty fast at learning so it shouldn't take forever. [emoji4][emoji4]

  10. Dont forget excited [emoji6] my huskies have their tails curled most of the time. Usually pulling or trying to kill something gets their tails down fast.
    It's easier to show Conformation if the tail is all the way down [emoji4]
    I just want to make it clear that I didn't say their tails need to be in a curl all the time. It's different nothing wrong with it.

  11. Thank you, will do. Also, when she does grab one of my things what should i do? I don't want to leave it bc i don't want her to think that's okay. So, how should i go about that?
    Put her in a kennel when she grabs at something. She knows you don't want her to. Your puppy is way past the cute and cuddle stage. When she gets out of line put her in time out in another room or kennel.

  12. I was doing that for a while actually but im afraid she'll jump at me and bite. So when she grabs something of mine i should just bop her nose until she lets it go or just do it once? 
    Look at her like a challenge because that's the way she is looking at you. Dont be scared just do what has to be done plan and simple. They know she can smell your fear. Keep your self calm when you get the point that she is in trouble to put her in a crate stay neutral no feeling nothing completely neutral dont yell or get angry just do what must be done.

  13. You have a crate put her in it Everytime she starts it. Pick your stuff up. Put her in different room tell you are done. Don't give her treats huskies are smart she is working you with treats. She knows now that you will give her treats if she puts something down. Now you aren't. Now you are just taking it away. No more treats put them up. She mad because you went from giving her something to not. She is working you over she knows she isn't suppose to have it and you want it down. She is waiting for the treats.

  14. Sorry to jump in here but I just wanted to confirm that when we say curled we don’t mean all the time right? As the tail is supposed to be straight and down whilst at a resting position and only really held high and in a crescent shape when excited or interested in something. So most of the time it would be down, maybe that’s what the poster meant? Not sure.
    Ice on the other hand has his tail virtually always held up and in a full circle doughnut shape which i know is a fault.

    No they go down but a trait of a Spitz Family dog is a tail curled lol they go down when they want to kill something or they are really angry or when they are being put in place but it goes right to curl when they are happy. [emoji2]

    Your puppy could have some seppala lines in her, based on her markings. If you look up Seppala husky, you would know what I mean. 
    Yes that's true also. You should read all about that line it's fun [emoji2] It's not seen a lot in the states [emoji4]

  15. Mine must be non huskies then...both do not have curled tails...and I know several here that have straight tails...
    No I didn't say they weren't huskies lol it's just odd. Sorry if you took that way. I know they are suppose to be curled but it could just be a genetic fault which is no big deal [emoji2]

  16. IMG_1331.thumb.JPG.8996d9d9843a8511ccf34d6de8151d2d.JPGShe’s lovely! This is my husky @ 2 1/2 months. Autumn and your puppy have very similar colors. Your puppy definitely has husky ears, nose, legs, and eyes, and paws. Autumn’s tail is not curled yet. I hope this helps.

  18. Look at how they play before it becomes an issue there is something one of them is doing?? Sly and Maliki use to have terrible fights because Sly couldn't figure out how to play with Maliki. Maliki is very intolerant of adolescent females trying to do things she doesn't approve off. What they are doing is finding which one is more dominant.
    If you can't watch it work on them separate them in different cages in the same place looking at each other not side by side. Take them out one at a time for a while. Then slowly work them back together.

    They will be good and play for a while then all the sudden it turns out to a huge fight. Sometimes it’s over toys or bones but usually we try to pick everything up before we put them together. It sucks because sometimes they get along great then other times they fight bad. I just wish theres something i could do so I don’t have to get rid of one. [emoji20] 
    Toys with two dogs or more is never a good idea. Mine don't play with toys when they go to play together. Dont leave anything on the floor. If you want them to play with toys make them lay down with their toys in separate places. [emoji2]

  19. this was a rat and was over a foot long from nose to end of tail. she ran it down about 75" from the burn pile. i didnt think she would catch it and then she was on it. she is growing fast and is already over 25 pounds.
    Wow she is big. She doesn't look that big at all in her photos. Duke one of mine will get the prey and bite it's head off first. She is going to enjoy the hunt. She is going to need 24 hour super vision lol next is a rabbit [emoji2][emoji2]
