  1. I have half a husky lol but I feed Earthborn Holistic Meadow Feast. Never had a problem with this food. The size is perfect for my husky/pyr mix and my yorkie. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks 2Huskyfun. I’m so glad that my two girls now are non-alpha. My hope is getting a non-alpha that gets along. I appreciate all the advice form you and others here! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Since I have two females already, is there any merit to considering a male, especially a laid-back one? There’s a non-alpha male near me but they don’t know how he is with smaller dogs. I’m trying to arrange a meeting though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hi, I currently have a 6 year old female husky/Pyrenees mix named Miska and a 9 year old female yorkie named Isabella. I’m thinking about adopting a husky from a rescue but I’m unsure how to go about it. I want a dog that will get along with my two girls now and not harm Isabella. What advice do y’all have on determining the best possible match for my home? Thanks! Here’s a photo of my girls (the blue light is from an aquarium...and I live like a bachelor [emoji16]) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I wanted to thank everyone for their input. After giving this some thought and prayer, I decided to take the puppy back to the breeder. She is an AKC breeder but I honestly believe that the puppies were pulled too soon form the dam. I don’t know when but I suspect it was around week 7 or so. I just didn’t have the bandwidth to work on this particular behavioral issue but was willing to raise a puppy, as hard as it can be. I did this for the benefit of everyone and for the puppy as well so she can get placed into a home that can work with her. I communicated this to the breeder. I hope I made the right decision. I still want a husky and I’m considering adopting an older one now. Thanks again! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. My vet said the same thing. This has me a bit worried. I honestly expected her to maybe want to play too rough but not resource guarding me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. That sounds like good advice. I never expected to be the middle man and I hate that it’s between the puppy and my yorkie. Hannah did it again earlier but I calmly pushed her away from me. I’m not sure if that’s the right answer. She just growled at Miska too. I’d hate for her to grow up and have problems. Hannah is pretty clingy and probably insecure too. It still has me concerned though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. That’s what I’m hoping for. It just surprised me because I’ve never seen this before. I’ve raised 3 yorkies, a husky/Pyrenees mix, had a husky puppy until 6 months, an eskie, and never seen this before. I was wondering what it was and what to do. I appreciate the input. So far what I’ve observed is that everyone has calmed down and Hannah is more relaxed. Now she tries to play with Bella and Bella’s like “wait a minute, didn’t you get snippy with me?” Bella is much more balanced around Hannah and if Hannah tries to get too rough Bella lets her know. I’m letting them work it out (unless it’s what I saw last night). Things are way better today! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. So I just got done with her at my vet and he thinks it was resource guarding (I was the resource) and I agree. That’s what thought after giving it some time. The times she reacted that way towards Bella was when she was around my feet. I know it’s crazy for her right now. He recommended that when I give them attention to do them at the same time. She’s so shy and I don’t think I’ve ever had a puppy this shy. I’m definitely planning on socializing her for sure! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hi, I just got a new husky puppy this evening. She’s pretty shy but is settling in. I don’t have a name yet but the breeder called her Hannah. She’s so pretty! But I have a question: I have a Yorkie who is curious but a bit enthusiastic. Hannah has growled a few times at Bella when she approaches. Hannah lunged at her and I think she was showing her teeth. With all of the puppies I’ve raised I’ve never seen this before. I know everything in Hannah’s world has turned upside down but I want to ensure that Hannah gets along with Bella as well as Miska (my husky/Pyrenees mix). What am I to make of this? What should be my response? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. That looks like it’s a pretty good book. I may order that. I think I heard by Zak George that the mental stimulation can wear them out and that’s a good thing. After my first two yorkies (both are gone now), I didn’t do much training with the rest of my dogs. So this should be good for all of them. My Miska Bear started understanding sit and she’s about 6 now. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for your help. Yes, the breeder was helpful. She recommended one of the females that she described as “shy”. I asked if this particular female was calm and submissive and she agreed that she was. I agree from what I saw. Between the two girls, the one I picked was more calm. This is the girl I went with. There were two nearly black huskies in the litter and three that were lighter dirty faced...all were very pretty. Someone else picked the black one with blue eyes. The dam is a reddish colored husky and the sire is dark like this one. I appreciate everyone's help!
  13. Hi, I plan on getting a husky puppy soon and I’m no stranger to dogs. I have a husky/Pyrenees mix and a yorkie now but I am pretty rusty on current training techniques. I have to admit that I didn’t train the two I have now but they are relatively well behaved (except for jumping on me, but I’m beginning to work on that). Both are very laid back and love to please, thankfully. They are non-aggressive towards people and other dogs. I can’t say the same thing about wild rabbits that might show up in my backyard though. Anyway I recently learned that alpha rolling is a no-no and I started researching techniques that do work. It’s not something I used very much and thankfully I haven’t seen any signs of harm that it caused. Is there an all-inclusive resource like books that you would recommend on current techniques that do work? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks all for the replies. It seems that a submissive male would probably be the least risky even though I prefer a female. I’d rather have peace than risk having problems. It’s just hard to turn down an agouti that’s mostly black and the males from this litter are a little lighter in color. But all are beautiful. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I get to visit Friday/Saturday so I plan on watching them and talking to the breeder. She already knows I want a non-dominant dog. Thanks all for the comments! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
