  1. Hi, No, don’t tap him on the nose and don’t grab him by the scruff either. If you can’t get him off then maybe have some treats ready in your pockets and tell him to leave. When he leaves and goes for the treat that you’re giving him then give him loads of praise. I’m going to send you a direct message on a couple of hours as I got Luna when she was 6 1/2 weeks and I went through the same thing as you. Hes gorgeous 🐶😊
  2. Hey, Was wondering where in the neck of the woods you are all from? I’m from Sunderland in the North East of England. Anyone else from the North East? Amanda
  3. Hi, I’ve noticed that Luna’s left eye (right looking at her) shows more white at the bottom than her left. Is this normal in puppies? (She’s nealry 13 weeks) See pic. Thanks Amanda
  4. Ok. Sorry. Here’s a clearer pic. There isn’t anything wrong with her actual eye. It’s just when she looks at you, sometime you see a lot of white on the right eye (looking at her) but with the other eye there is no white.
  5. Hi, My question is can you use dog wipes to clean your dogs intimate areas. Is it safe to use or should I buy a flannel cloth and use some of her puppy shampoo mixed with water to give her a wipe there? Or just use water with the cloth? Thanks Amanda
  6. She’s not. Luna’s eyes are both brown. But thanks Was that question aimed at me?
  7. You quoted me above but didn’t write anything? Lol
  8. Hi and welcome to the forum. She’s gorgeous. Love her different eye colours. I have recently gone through exactly what you are going through with my puppy Luna. We got her at nearly 6 weeks old and I have cried, felt like I was going mad and thought that getting her was a mistake. She was biting, leaving cuts all over my hands and face, she constantly needed attention and put a strain on my relationship with my boyfriend. However she is now 15 weeks old and the majority of the biting has stopped, I get way more kisses and she’s just a fluffy cuddle monster lol. I love her to bits and couldn’t imagine life without her. She has so much personality. No way am I experienced in husky ownership but just some advice from what worked with me. Don’t shout or use any force with her. Use positive reinforcement. Whenever she bit I would give her a toy to bite and praise her. When she got to much, I put her in the kitchen in timeout. She cried for a while but now when I put her in she is silent and comes out after a few minutes calmed down. Since yours is a puppy then I wouldn’t recommend running with her. Too strenuous on their growing joints. The rule is, 5 minutes of exercise per month of their age. So walk her for 10 mins a day outside or 15 when she’s 3 months etc. I would recommend taking her outside (carrying her until she’s had her jabs and can go outside). Getting her used to noise, smells, other people. If you can then take her to puppy class. Also teach her to wait, leave, sit etc. Use treats. She will pick it up quickly. Luna at 12 weeks could sit, give both paws, wait, go in basket, lie down etc. It feels like a bad decision at the minute for you but stick with it and she will get much better and will make the best companion. Huskies are amazing dogs but for first time owners, they can be overwhelming. Any other questions then just ask. Oh and one more thing. You will want to feed her good quality food. A lot of food is bad for huskies. Stay away from anything that contains wheat, grain, beet pulp etc. They are fillers and no good for your fur baby. I feed mine on puppy Taste of the Wild. One of the best food you can get. Not the cheapest but well worth it in the long run. Post some more pics and hello from me and Luna Thanks Amanda p.s you won’t believe hope quickly she will grow lol. Pic of Luna now at 15 weeks and at 7 weeks haha
  9. They look legit to me. I think the other ones snouts that you are referring to may look different because they don’t have any eye markings and the all white makes them look longer. If I was going to choose one then it would be either the first or second picture (the first one is super cute).
  10. Hey everyone, Here are some pics of Luna. She’s just turned 11 weeks and grown so much in the 5 weeks we’ve had her. She can go for her first walk on Tuesday and her harnes arrived the other day She’s such a character 🐶💗 Pic heavy 😋 p.s the last pic is of her 5 weeks ago
  11. Hi, Was wondering if anyone can recommend any good and durable dog toys. Ones that will provide entertainment and ones that will also stimulate their brains? Thanks Amanda
  12. Hi, As some of you know, I have a husky puppy who is 10 weeks on Saturday. She had food about 7ish last night and at 9ish she brought food back up. It was in the shape of a sausage. Then at 11pm she did the same again but with less food. At 2am she vomited properly and brought bile up/acid then again at 6.15 and 6.30am. I was going to take her to the vets as was really worried. I made sure she was drinking plenty and gave her some white fish and rice. Throughout the day she’s had small meals of rice and chicken breast. She’s never vomited all day and went from not being herself to being back to pretty much her usual self as I wrote this. Her poo was fine as I kept checking. Now she has started to scratch a lot around her ears, her back and is biting her feet. Does that means she’s allergic to the rice (grain)? I gave her to stop the vomiting and now I’ve giving her an allergic reaction? She was doing it a lot but then went to sleep. She’s awake now but my boyfriend is watching her while I go to bed. Going to put her back on her normal food tomorrow and keep away from grains. Thanks Amanda (one stressed mammy)
  13. Hi and welcome. The people are lovely and the forum is a great place for information. Has helped us loads. Luna says hello 😊 Amanda p.s yeah, where are the pics lol
  14. Thank you. She may have ate something outside but couldn’t see anything in her sick or poo. The allergic reaction is pretty bad we’ve only had a couple of hours sleep during the night. She’s constantly scratching her ears/face and biting her paw. We can see the redness around her eye and nose. Feel so sorry for her. I wish I had know and wouldn’t have gave her rice. Just chicken/fish Both of her ears were standing up and now one of them is floppy again. Going to take her to the vets today to see if they can give her anything. She hasn’t vomited anyone though. Although she had a really loose poo around 2am. Could that be to the allergic reaction?
  15. Hi, Luna is nearly 7 weeks old and was wondering if you recommend a mainly wet with a little bit of dry food diet? Also should we be feeding her the same brand wet food or is it ok to switch between brands? Thanks Amanda
  16. Yeah, Luna is currently on Taste of the Wild at the minute but it’s pretty expensive here. So was looking for a good quality kibble that’s a little cheaper
  17. Ok, thanks. I wonder why it has maize in it, when their adult dog food doesn’t. There adult food seems better. Btw do you know how long a 12kg bag of puppy food would usually last?
  18. What do you all think of this dry food?
  19. Hi, I need your advice please. Luna is 8 weeks old and the last week her behaviour has been pretty bad. When I come in from work I get a lovely welcome but then she starts biting my feet and legs. If I tell her off then she just comes back worse. Bites my hands and my face. Not nibbles but hard bites that hurt. I’ve tried time out for 30 seconds at a time but most times she wees even though she goes to the back door when she needs to go toilet. She will not listen at all. Me and my boyfriend are so stressed and frustrated and we don’t know if this is normal behaviour or if we have a very bad puppy. I’m hoping it’s normal. She has her second injection on the 4th December and then she can go out a week after that she can go out. I’m planning on taking her to obedience classes then. Thanks From one stressful owner Amanda
  20. Yeah, as mentioned before, I didn’t realise this until after I had bought her. I wished I had got her at 8 weeks as she may have learnt bite inhibition which would have helped. Thanks
  21. Hi, Luna will be 11 weeks when she can go outside for walks. I was wanting some advice. I’m look at the Vari-fit harness and have read that a good lead is a police training lead. Is that something you would recommend? Once she is good on a lead then would a retractable lead be a good choice? What do you all use? Thanks Amanda
  22. Hey everyone, I’m Amanda from Sunderland in the UK and this is myself and my boyfriends beautiful Husky puppy. Her name is Luna and we absolutely adore her. We’ve only had her since Tuesday but love her so much already 🌙🐶😬💗 Thanks Amanda
  23. An update on Luna. Omg I can’t believe how much she’s grown in less than 4 weeks 😳
  24. Thanks everyone I’ve ordered the Vari-fit for her and going to get the police lead to go with it. Really looking forward to taking her out for the first time, in a couple of weeks. Thanks again Amanda p.s this forum and the people in it have really been invaluable x
