  1. Thank you all so much! Night times are a breeze compared to the first 3 nights now. We are in our bedroom with her and a smaller crate and she is fine with it. We have set alarms every 2 hours for toilet and she lets us know with a small cry or tap on the crate. She understands sit and leave but is already testing us as she comes straight over for a treat when we praise her, but we’re alternating treats and praise fusses, when she only gets fusses she goes back to doing it so we put her in time out. Cant wait to take her out on walks to burn off some of her energy, but she has another 4 weeks to go yet. as I said earlier we have begun with the obedience training and she is so intelligent, and quick to pick up on things. I am off work for another week to help bed in the routine, did anyone else have issues with chewing everything in the house? Our other dogs bed, table legs, draw handles, crate bars, skirting boards, etc. Despite the 6+ chew toys we have got for her.
  2. Hi thanks for having us! Myself and fiancé have recently got our baby girl Rusty. She was 8 weeks when we got her, and comes from a litter of 6. I’ve been an admirer of huskies from a distance for many many years now, and finally ground the fiancé down into getting one. We already have a Staffy cross he is my partners from the rescue. But we’re keen to say hello and thank you for having us!
  3. Advice please 😢 our little girl Rusty is having a hard time in her crate at night and when the crate door is locked when sleeping in the day.When the crate door is locked she scratches and chews the bars but worse is she keeps messing even when she’s been for a wee and poop before going in the crate. We’ve tried last night for the first night to leave her be after 4 nearly sleepless nights, but coming down every 2 hours as per her toilet schedule we’ve made note of, to let her out for a toilet and reassure her we are still here and it’s ok. We don’t praise her when she comes out of the crate. We leave a chew toy her Kong with some of her kibble or treats in. Tried the ticking clock wrapped in my t-shirt and a hot water bottle wrapped in a throw. She has a bed in there and we’ve put pillows in to make it seem smaller and cosier, even tried the throw from the sofa that she loves. We’ve also bought her a pen so we don’t have to lock the door if it’s causing her stress so she can enter and leave the crate but still be safe in her pen, and she escaped the pen last night. We noticed the crying had stopped and she was on the sofa when we came down for the first of our two hourly checks. Any advice would be great thanks as always for your time. Chris Abbie &Rusty 🐶🐾🐕
