  1. What company did you buy it from or what make is it please.
  2. They use them for horses and livestock This is what I'm looking at. I live in the UK I've seen some for sale however I would rather have a recommendation from someone who is on here to recommend one that works. I'm looking at putting it around the perimeter before the fence. This way he will not get to attack the fence to get out.
  3. It's as a last resort. I have 6ft fencing up. If he gets at fencing long enough he gets through. I need something to stop him getting at fencing.
  4. I have a large garden to secure. Some fencing is behind Leylandi and belongs to neighbours. I keep patching it on my side. I've boarded it , wired it used rocks. The neighbour's have livestock. I'm worried he gets out and gets hit by a car or truck or alternatively gets shot off a farmer. Coyote rollers will not work on the size and layout or I would have tried.
  5. Some may not agree with an invisible fence however I have a huge garden and even though I have 6ft fencing my Husko is forever getting out. No matter how much I secure , continually repair he gets out. I live in a rural area so I'm guessing the pheasants and deer and other wildlife is too much of a temptation. I am shocked at how he finds a way. The road near where I live is lethal for some reason people always speed on country roads and there are accidents continually. I'm terrified he gets out and ends up hit , killed or crippled by a car or truck. To put another fence up around my property it would cost about 20k and not only that hes a seasoned escape artist. I'm looking at invisible fencing as an option. Does anyone have one in the UK to recommend. I dont want a wired one as I've got too much of a garden.
  6. My sibe is hairy Houdini. I have 6ft fencing yet he still gets out. I continually fix the fence plus wire it up in front of the fence plus huge rocks in front so he cant dig. He gets plenty of exercise my hobby is long distance walking. It's not a boredom issue either. I think he escapes as I live in a rural area we have livestock around us plus a lot of wildlife. I know Huskies are escape artists but mine is a professional escape artist! As soon as I fix one escape route he will find another. He got out the other day and came back out of breath I checked him for blood mainly as we have sheep , geese hens etc nearby. I'm wondering how others in the UK have combatted this problem. Someone did mention electric fencing. I think it sounds cruel however if he gets into the sheep field he could get shot. Alternatively he could get run over. No amount of securing the fence is keeping him in.
  7. 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.
  8. Yes I told relatives not to let him jump up they have learned the 65 pound hard way lol.
  9. 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.
  10. 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 ?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. I use a metal comb. I don't like the furminator they drag and break hair off.
