  1. My husky is well excercised. However he escaped again tonight. He went through the fence. What bothered me is he would not come back. It was an utter nightmare. I live in a rural area thankfully he didn't get in with any livestock there is sheep next to my house. I'm resecuring the fence tomorrow again. The issue that bothers me is he wouldn't come back. Luckily it was 1am and I suspect it was deer that enticed him to escape. There were no cars on the road and I was like the proverbial village idiot trying to catch him. I ran away from him that's how I caught him in the end. Hes 18 month and it's really bothered me that he would not come back at all. Any advice.
  2. Yes I told relatives not to let him jump up they have learned the 65 pound hard way lol.
  3. I give him a lot of excercise. He has a 50ft leash and I live in a rural area so he's getting good long walks . I take him up on the Moors at the weekend for good 10 mile walks . He's good on commands except jumping up at other dogs and people. He also goes off leash when a book the parkour. I can't run lol but have got a scooter as I'm waiting until he's 18 month before I run him on that. He is a lot more hyper than other huskies I meet plus bigger he's tall and lean probably as he's well excercised. I don't want him jumping up even though it's out of friendlyness as it's bad. Plus he's very strong to hold back.
  4. All dogs play my 12 year old still has puppy moments. A husky owner I bumped into this other day said hers calmed down a lot at around 2 years old. This is when they have finished growing so I'm presuming age 2 ?
  5. Hi, My boy is now 15 month old he's very boisterous which the I realise the breed is. I take him out on two long walks every day rain or shine , morning and night. On a weekend I do longer walks on the hills and Moors. When I meet other dogs he's a hyper idiot. Even other huskies are calm when they meet him but he's straight up jumping all over them . I've been told he will calm down. At what age did your husky start to grow up. He has been nuetered.
  6. Don't worry about weight. My boy was over 60 pound months ago he was always small then suddenly a growth spurt at 12 month. Females are smaller than males. As long as you have a healthy dog that's all that matters.
  7. You can't really tell when they are so young. My pup was small too he's big now, tall and lean. The only way to truly tell is a DNA test. I did one out of curiosity and mine came back Siberian Husky X malamute.
  8. I use a metal comb. I don't like the furminator they drag and break hair off.
  9. Introduce them slowly and just keep an eye on them when they play as huskies can be rough. I have a chihuahua and my husky is fine with him. My chihuahua is the boss. To be honest if be more worried about the chihuahua as they are little lions.
  10. I know, I've got someone coming to lay turf soon. He has to level garden god knows what will pop up.
  11. We have had to change some of our door handles due to my dog opening them. We have put the olde fashioned door knobs on rather than handles. We've also put some locks on doors.
  12. He will Bury whether he's hungry or not. I gave him some tripe he went off and buried it, 5 minutes later dug it up and ate it.
  13. My sibe since he was a puppy has buried his food and bones etc. I know dogs do this. However he does it daily. If I'm out hiking and give him some meat out my sandwich he buries it on route. The foot in the garden from he will dig up when he's ready and bring it in the house. The cat brought a dead mouse home the dog got it and he buried it in the garden. I had to wait til he finished and go back and dig it up to put it in the bin. I gave him the left over beef from last Sundays roast it's somewhere buried in the garden til he redigs it up. Is anyone else's sibe a prolific burier.
  14. My sibes ears were floppy as a pup. I think the muscles have to develop. If in doubt there are dog DNA tests. I was unsure with mine the DNA came back a pure siberian Husky with a pure Alaskan Malamute. It makes no difference to me but his behaviour wasn't typical husky so I got a DNA.
