  1. Hey guys! My boy has been scratching himself crazy for weeks so i finally decided to go to the vet and get him a chewable nexguard flea med. I gave it to him a couple hours ago and decided to comb him to see how much fleas he has...... and i found he was COVERED in fleas everywhere. I'm talking loads and loads of fleas coming off with the fur when combing. Is there anything else I can do to remove all of the fleas, I was thinking of giving him a bathe with dawn soap., or getting a flea comb I wanted to know if there is anything, anything i can do on top of giving him nexguard to remove his ticks.
  2. Hey guys, what's up! My puppy will turn 1 year next month and I've had him since 9 weeks, everything is going great except that if he finds certain things lying on the floor, he'll immediately pick them up and chew them, such as a small kids toys, paper, remotes plastic, tissues. But he has NEVER chewed up any furniture, walls, socks/shoes or carpet or even picks up sticks etc on walks.....only the small things i've listed he chews up. I try to keep these listed things away from his reach but sometimes my little sister leaves them on the floor. I know many of you will say avoid him from reaching these things, but i want to train him for scenarios where these items are left exposed accidentally. He also is exercised daily, physically and mentally. Will I be able to train him to stop chewing these item if he finds them lying on the floor, if so how? What are training methods i can use to help with this issue? Thanks! -P.S. This is my first dog so i'm not sure if its normal for all dogs to chew on these item.
  3. Hey what's up guys! My guy is turning 1 year in a couple months and I just wanted to see how he is doing in comparison to other huskies that was his age, and see if his current issues are completely normal for his age, and if they will go away with continued training.... Right now the only issues are: - Lunges at other dogs to play when he gets real close, only dogs.(Have gotten a lot better compared to before) - Goes crazy when greeting other people, will jump up and never greet calmly if someone wants to pet him - Sorta can't leave him alone unsupervised, only thing he will guarantee to chew are remotes if left on table -Run out the front door if accidentally opened Did any of you guys have similar issues with your huskies at this age and did they go away with continued training? Is this too many issues for a 1 year old dog? I am a first time husky/dog owner and not sure if these are normal behaviors for a 1 year old dog, so im kinda losing my mind, and so I just wanted to see how other huskies are doing, thanks for your help!
  4. Awesome! It's crazy because when I tried those adult dog weight calculators it would say his adult weight is 52 lbs!! I'm just curious to see of other huskies on here kept growing after 1 year and if so how much.
  5. What's up guys? My puppy is 9 months and he weighs exactly 50 lbs. He has been 49 lbs for the last month or so and I wanted to know if he is done growing, weight and high wise? If not, at what age will he reach his full height and weight. Also, from your personal experience and after seeing other huskies growth how much will my guy weigh as an adult, from his current weight for his age? .....The dad was 56 lbs and the mom was 52 lbs. Thanks
  6. Hey, guys. My puppy has had this scratch around both eyes, which has gotten worse over the last week or so. It started out small but kept getting bigger and bleeding and wouldn't heal because my puppy kept scratching it. I have not put any topical ointment or went to the vet as this seemed like it would heal by itself, but it hasn't only only gets worse as he keeps scratching himself. How can I help heal this? Should I take him to the vet? Thanks!
  7. What's up guys! So earlier today I thought my 9 month old puppy picked something off the floor in my house so when I went to check, that's when he started to run around thinking it's a game, he only had his collar on. I got scared thinking it was something dangerous so when he ran near me I grabbed him by the collar, that's when he bite me and kept his mouth on my hand. He did leave a mark but drew no blood, I was seriously shocked he would do this as he hasnt done this before. I thought it was a one time thing so I baited him into running around again to see what will happen if I grabbed the collar again, he bite me again. He has always hated when I grab him by the collar, he would always swing his head up like he was about to bite, or even just put his mouth on your hand or arm. He has no aggression issues whatsoever, he just hates when his collar is grabbed. How can I get him to not mind anyone grabbing his collar and get him used to it where he no longer cares? I definitely don't want this to happen when he's an adult and he can do serious damage when I go to grab his collar Thanks for your help!
  8. What's up guys! I'm having trouble getting my 8 month puppy to go into his crate on command. Once I manage to get him in, he loves it inside and can stay for hours without a single whine. He loves his crate and does not have issues staying inside. He 100% knows his crate command but chooses to not go in it, because he is so damn STUBBORN. After being out and its time for his crate he will just lay down and not go in or just look at me and decide to ignore me and not go in. How can I get him to go into his crate on command? I've done it all, throwing kibble inside, holding high value treats inn my hand etc. He just does not want to go in.....I've been late to work on so many occasions because he just refuses to go in because of his stubbornness, he knows the command but doesn't listen. .....This process of getting him in the crate everyday takes soo long!!!
  9. What's up guys! I have sort of a dilemma that I would really appreciate if you can help with. ......After finishing walking my 6 month puppy we come in through the front door and hang out in the living room area for a while, then when I'm about to take him downstairs he just lies on the ground and wont let me pick him up. I have to pick him up because he is terrified to go down our stairs. At first it was kinda cute, but now it is really annoying as he does this every time we get inside the house and it seems i'm always late for somewhere because he refuses to let pick him up and just lays there. He would squirm if i tried to pick him up and just keep turning till i couldn't get a grip on him. And I don't want to forcefully pick him up.....but unfortunately I've had to a few times in the past which looked really uncomfortable for him, but there is no other way to get him on his feet besides forcefully doing so. And he is doing this to be 100% stubborn, and not because he is anxious or fearful etc. He just wont get up! Nothing seems to work, not even the high value treats, pretending to go back outside to go on a walk, trying to play with him..... THIS GUY KNOWS I'M BULLSHITING AND JUST TRYING TO PICK HIM UP!!! How can I fix the issue, any help is appreciated. P.S. This is how he just stays when he knows i'm coming towards him.
  10. What I did to stop mine from pulling was super easy....whenever he started to pull or even just get ahead of me, I would just do a complete 180 turn and keep walking, then if he got ahead again I would turn again and keep walking.... I did this until he realized he should be by my side because he's not the one walking me. Mind you I had to keep turning and walking till he understood. Also I never pet him when he started to walk by my side because that would excite him and want to make him pull.
  11. Hey guys! I have been having this issue for as long as I can remember, my 6 month puppy lunges so much at other dogs while were on our walk. But he does it to play and not at all any aggression or anxiety issues, he just thinks every dogs wants to play so he keeps lunging as soon as he sees them. He use to lung at other people but i'm able to use treats to keep his focus on me until we pass them, but when he sees another dog nothing I have or do will get his attention and stop the lunging.....Now this is a real danger to my puppy because I've had dogs that have taken his lunging the wrong way and tried to lung back and attack, so its very frustrating.. What can I do to stop his lunging, any advice is appreciated!! P.S. Please don't tell me to just get a trainer....I have fixed almost all other problems myself; leash pulling etc. and would like to solve this with your help, as this is the ONLY issue I have with my 6 month puppy!
  12. Hi Guys! I have a quick question that I have been wondering for the longest time....I wanted to know if my puppy will ever reach 60 lbs as a full grown adult? I Know this question may sound crazy but from your own experience and from seeing other huskies growth rates will you be able to tell me. He just turned 6 months a couple days ago and weighs 41 lbs. His mom weighs 52 lbs and the dad weighs 56 lbs. From his current weight plus the parents weight, will he reach 60 lbs as a full adult? ....I mean that's only 20 lbs left and plus don't huskies grow till 2 years?? Now, no matter what my husky weighs, whether 60 lbs or 40 lbs I still love em, but I have been curious about this for a while and it'll help me put it out of my mind if i got an answer. Thanks!! P.S. Again I know this question is absurd but i'm very curious.
  13. Thanks for the reply man, that really helped to know! And i'm ok with spending money on the dog in case of emergencies, like yours. I'm sure you don't pay $300 every month,I didn't know if this was a major surgery that was cost $1000+. Since my dogs is only about 8 weeks when I pick him up, how many vaccinations would I have to give him and how often? Also how much do these vaccinations cost? Is there a website that gives an accurate time when the dog should be given specific vaccinations? Thanks! Sorry guys, I know it may seem like i want to be spoon fed every information. But i wanted a reliable and accurate source of info on this stuff.
  14. What's up guys! This is my first post and i'm excited to be a part of this forum. I am buying a Siberian husky from a breeder and had some concerns and if you could help me out, i'd really appreciate it! It is a 7½ week old male, and the breeder told me when they took him to the vet for a final examination, the vet said everything is healthy, except only one of the testicles hasn't descended yet. The vet said they couldn't locate it, and the breeder said they didn't want to do a further examination because it was so common. I plan to neuter him but i'm afraid if i end up buying the husky and the testicle doesn't drop, I'll have a massive bill on my hands, for the additional surgery...Or worse the dog will develop cancer. Should I look for another husky? I really came to like this specific one, and was looking forward to buying him, but I don't want to spend lots of money because of this issue. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
