  1. Ohh okay thank you for all of your input! I really appreciate it This has been the best husky forum I subscribed to thank you so much again for your kind gestures and taking your time to respond
  2. Ooh ok got it thank you very much chelsea, and rob :). I think the holder said the husky is fine with car rides, so I definitely will take breaks every two hours or so if he can or less. In addition, should I bring some of his toys to accompany him during the car ride because I'm worried he will start howling and barking. And for the raw diet, I was thinking of incorporating one raw egg into his meal once a week and mixing (cooked) chicken in his meal everyday and a occasional raw chicken leg, is this ok for his meals?
  3. Hello! Sorry for the series of posts I'm a worrier as you can tell LOL As some may know, I recently got approved for adopting a husky and it will be part of my family next week! Though there are a lot of important information on the internet, there are still many questions that are left unanswered and I was hoping a community of husky owners would guide me Thank you ahead of time for taking your time and answering these questions!!! Here's some information about my husky to help with the questions; He is 2 years old and approximately 51 pounds. His holder explained to us that he is really calm and has a very low energy level compared to a lot of other huskies his age. 1.Currently, my family and I decided that we will walk him at around 6 am everyday for 30-40 minutes and 1 hour to 1 hour 30 minutes around 6:00pm. Along with that we will take him to dog parks/fields/beaches/hiking as much as we can, however going to an option twice a week is a requirement for around one to two hours. We will walk and or run at his pace. Is this daily plan sufficient for the huskies daily exercise? 2. From what I have seen, some husky owners feeds their huskies raw eggs and chicken however, but other husky owners say that this will cause choking hazards and is not recommended, is it safe to feed them raw eggs and chicken? 3. I live in California, and we have major heat waves during the summer and autumn, is it safe/ok to bring my husky to the beach during said heat waves? 4.Call me a planner, but we are already planning on taking our husky on a trip for a few days, however I am worried about the car ride, which is 6 hours. The trip to the mountains won't happen until winter, but training him will take a while which is why I am asking now, (we will take him to classes), what type of obedience training should he learn/and or advice that will help to ease his mind during the ride? Should I be worried about having him in a car for 6 hours? Thank you very much for reading my incredibly long post !
  4. Wow! That is a great idea I think that would be the best option considering the predicament. Thank you very much! The holder explained that he’s not much of a jumper and is really calm with a very low energy level compared to other huskies so hopefully the reinforced fence helps if he is actually a jumper! And additionally I have another question, should I reinforce/add extensions to my iron gate as well it’s exactly 5’0. From what ive seen huskies commonly only escape because of chained fences or a sort of contraption that heaves them up.
  5. Hello! Sadly we cannot do a double row fence because of the following photos. Our city is very nitpicky and a funny story, we built a shack in the backyard and soon after they billed us a 3,000$ fine for doing so along with tearing it down. below is the situation at hand
  6. Hello! We were considering fence panels below however, the only problem is trying to have all these extensions at exactly 6 feet which is quite challenging as our city does not permit any fences above six feet
  7. Hello everyone! Im new to this forum and created this account to help give me insight. Recently, I adopted a husky who is around 50 pounds who will be available for pickup around next week. After constant worry and extensive research about huskies escaping fences, I'm worried my dog will try to escape. Our backyard is pretty spacious, however, the fence is relatively short with some sections made of brick and others iron. We have one gate that is chained but we are planning on installing a PVC pipe above it to fix the problem. However the biggest problem we are facing is the brick wall as it has a unique feature where the brick wall slowly becomes shorter and shorter all around the perimeter until it reaches the end of the backyard. It starts off at 5 feet than slowly shortens all the way down to 3 feet 10 inches. What do you guys think would be the best extension to fix the problem at hand? Thank you very much ahead of time!
