  1. Maybe instead of just putting his food bowl down put his food in the bowl sit next to him and hand feed him it. Do this until he allows you near the bowl when he eats. I did this with my dog to stop any potential food aggression.
  2. Thank you 😍 I'm forever cleaning his nose marks off the door.
  3. I have never used a crate on any of my dogs and won't it's down to personal preference. I make sure my boy has two good walks a day. I have a 50 meter rope leash for walks. He has a laundry basket full of toys and he likes the large rawhide type bones that he chews on. I've left him on his own at night with the run of the downstairs but I have a safety gate. He's 12 month now. At 9 month he was a horror so I excercised more. I bought some bitter bite dog spray and sprayed it on things to stop chewing.
  4. We have this issue now and again. What type of area do you live. We live in a rural area and the local wildlife at dawn upset him. We have deer and rabbits that come to the bottom of the garden. I have a big patio door. I don't close the curtains as I know he would be pulling them down to get out so I'm considering a metal roller shutter. Maybe it's animals waking him.
  5. Update : I'm not in full trust of him yet. I took him for a walk this morning and left him home alone for an hour. Came home and he was OK asleep on the sofa. 😁 I will carry on with short spells and see how I progress. I have no intention of leaving him long spells but every now and again I have places to go and I can't take him.
  6. My boy is 11 month old. He is still very clingy. If ever I've gone out I've made sure there is always someone in with him. Regardless of anyone being in he howls and paces up and down for me. I would like to be able to go out sometimes without him in tow. I have other dogs but he is still clingy. I will not use a crate. He does sleep downstairs on a rug all night and howls for a bit while I go to bed then my husband goes to bed later. He gets plenty of excercise. In reality he should be growing out of the clingy Ness by now. Anyone else leave their sibe home alone for a couple of hours crate free and how did they get to this level.
  7. I will have a look for the DNA result apparently dog DNA tests can typically identify the majority breeds in a canine with great accuracy. If a dog has a purebred parent or grandparent, the results are highly ACCURATE. His came back purebred siberian husky which his mother was crossed with a pure bred Malamute. I'm working on the separation anxiety still.
  8. Thanks for that. Basically it depends where you go. Obviously I would not be using a public footpath or a road though I've seen a few videos of people on you tube. I can't see any issue where I live as I live in a rural area.
  9. Can you point me to where it says I must have insurance legally. Apparently the forestry commission you need a permit? however I am using public bridleways which horses and bikes are permitted on bridleways.
  10. A "Timba" Tantrum When I don't let him in the patio door
  11. My dog was the same he was 5 month old when it dropped.
  12. I know my dog would do the same. I'm regularly pulled off the path when there are squirrels or hares.
  13. Just to update I did a dog DNA test. I did not put anything about breed or what breed I thought he was it came back 1 parent siberian husky 1 parent Malamute. He's a little bit taller now and still thin I weighed him he's 25 kilo and 11 months old. I think he looks more husky however was not sure as he is totally clingy. I can't even go to bathroom without him howling outside door. He sleeps with one eye open and I have to top toe out the room to leave him.
  14. Hi, My dog is a pet not a working dog with a rig. It is for a scooter. I've looked about and the insurance is referring to working dogs. This below is taken from the club site. Third Party Insurance cover for working your dogs, which can be obtained independently, or as part of the SHCGB membership.
  15. Bridleways allow bikes on so it won't be a problem as for permissive bridleways good look to anyone trying to find a land owner. I'm not sure why you would need insurance? Cyclists or other people on scooters don't get insured.
