  1. My friend and I both share the same passion. Siberian huskies, photography and hiking! We took our dogs and went on a 23km hike! Days like this truly fill full your soul. Hanging out with one of my best friends and a pack of well behaved amazing dogs, which we adore. Spending time in the middle of nowhere, nature was so beautiful yet mysterious. I truly shined today, so happy and glad to have people like this in my life. To have a ability to live this amazing journey!
  2. I started working with Conan "heel" and focus on me when I got him, at 8 weeks. With lots of rewards and praise. I never had issues. Also it helps because he knows that when he's on collar is heel walking time, when I put harness on him it's time for: * Don't mind for beggining of the video, it was made for fun, we enourage him to pull of the road, to make video more fun He is actually very good at pulling. He knows musher comands, he'll never pull when not told to, and he stops when I say so.
  3. My friends invited me to watch their farm and their animals while they were away. Randomly we found this beautiful place! It was truly breathtaking. Days like these keep reminding me of how beautiful life is and that you have to live every day like it's your last. This year was hard for us, but places like this give me energy and motivation to move on and truly LIVE!
  4. Omg, I love Floki! He's beautiful! My shepherd Sky, does it too! She would just crawl in your lap and you'll must hold her in the water 😉 Look at this, my new video of Conan talking 😂this is soooo cute. This is the only kind of talking, whining that I LOVE! ❤️ One of the reasons why I wanted this breed tho.
  5. Hi, Kelly 🙋‍♀️ You have a beautiful boy over there! They are such a gooffy funny brats 🤣 Yesterday Conan jumped into the really big pound and swam all around it, when he got out he got into his crazy happy state and was running around in circles barking and jumping all over the place Such a happy pup, we celebrated his first birthday Look at him 😁 video-1565269342.mp4 And this is how annoying he sometimes gets when we stop the car video-1565269465.mp4 This is him and me, when my friend came over. I don't have the whole thing, just the end, when he was already calm hahahah. video-1565269694.mp4
  6. I know, I'm still waiting for him to become escape artist and show his true husky temper I don't want to be naive and I still keep in mind that he might change. I'll do my best tho.
  7. Conan and I , spent his first birthday on 20km walk, it was amazing! Great bonding time. He was absolutely stunning, posing like a pro around many people, dogs, in the city.
  8. Hello world I'm a newbie and I just love your forum! You've all been so open and friendly to me, which I appreciate most. I have some questions about husky whining, screaming, howling etc. My boy is very sweet, he just turned 12 months. He's very obedient, I have none of the problems that husky owners have. He hasn't destroyed anything, he has a very good recall, he's perfect off lead, he does not pull on lead, he knows basic comands as sit, wait, heel, paw/other paw, five, beg, roll over, stand, and musher comands ( gee, haw, hike, whoa) He also is my photo model (I'm a photographer) , he would sit and wait almost everywhere I send him. I am a crate training supporter, but I never had to use it for him. He's completely fine home alone. The only issue I have with him is his vocal temperament. And it's sometimes driving me nuts. He just cannot see his breeders, he would go completely nuts, will scream his butt off, like he would be mixed with a monkey and hyena haha. He express his every mood with vocalisation. Sometimes when we're driving in the car (he is used to it, loves it because it means trips and sea side for him) he would whine everytime we stop or just out of boredom. Never ,when we go on a long distance travel, like he feels it, he would sleep the intire way. Sometimes when we go to store, a caffe or other short rides he would whine and be total annoying brat. He's also a jerk, he wants the whole car for himself, when my ex's dog was riding in the car with him, he was soo annoying, he was screaming, yelling, because he wanted all for himself. Also when my other female is driving with him, he would push her aside and nagg, whine. We've been working a lot on his vocalisation isuess. We haven't been able to meet any of my friends because he went completely insane, screamed, yelled, whined as hell. Now, we have really improved and I can meet them again without he getting crazy. The situation is getting better and better with every day, I'm working my ass of to overcome this. We're slowly getting better and i'm very proud! What are your experiences with this? I mean I knew they are vocal, when they greet you after not seeing you the whole day, I expected that he'll howl when left alone or when he hears a siren, but he never does. He just screams over exitement, in vary situations. When I meet some friends I always tell them to ignore him, and when he starts showing the signs of excitement and starts whining, screaming, I simply pull him on heel, and go forward, calmly but firm, then I focus him to look in my eyes saying "watch me" I think we're gonna make it. How are you guys dealing with it? Any experiences? I just push him into situations like this. He's very stuborn at this. Previous week I worked intire week with him, I was at my friend's, and we wanted some time for ourselves after a very long walk, my friend has a farm, with a lot of animals, 3 pyrenees dogs and they run all day long. So we put them all in the kennel. Conan was the only one screaming the WHOLE day, I was stuborn and did not take him out after he seetled down and stop. But the next day he did it again, every day I tried, put him at the kennel when he was tired, never in the morning. Always after running. But he did not stop. I mean, when he stop for 5 minutes I took him out, so he would see if he's quiet, he comes out. But this could take all day and the next day he'll repeat. I'm a very stuborn person and I'll continue my work with him, I believe I can make it!! Since I don't have any other isuess with him. Otherwise he's one of the most obedient sibes I ever seen.
  9. I think it is possible. But it cannot be without a good breeder that starts teaching 5 week puppies . My breeder taught each of the pupps what's their name and what word 'come' means. I got Conan at 8 weeks. I start working on recall almost the first day I got him. He is 1 year old now. We've been through a lot of work, socialisation, recall from different dogs, animals, different places. Here's some of our work: As a puppy With my other dog and a cat With other animals VID_20190624_200855.mp4 VID_20190723_210140.mp4

  11. Haha you have made my day! Thank you ❤️ Soon, we're going to sea side on Croatia, I will post some sea pictures when we got back
  12. Awww, you guys are all so sweet! You were all very kind and you all accepted me with kindness.❤️ Thank you so much! There's no magic trick actually 😉Only daily work, concistency and never giving up. Almost immediately after I got Conan I start teaching him to sit and wait. First at home, without distractions, on leash. Step by spet. Word "stay" step back, treat. Constantly repeating, step by step, each time further. Then going outside and teaching him in nature, first without any dogs, animals, people. After he got it I started practicing with Sky and Flynn. Then we went on friend dog meetings and practicing with group of dogs jp morgan chase near me
  13. NOTE: In the beggining, first few pictures and part of the post, is almost one year old , I'll copy paste it, so I won't have to rewrite it again Me and my Conan are new here. I think this forum is amazing, I'm reading it over a year now, when I finally got my first husky I decided to register. Conan. In Celtic origin meaning "little wolf" and in the form conan means “”little warrior.” That's what he is, wolf by soul, warrior by nature. Dream catcher because he caught my dreams. Ever since my samoyed Nala died I wanted a siberian. She was my first dog and she passed away almost 2 years ago. I always admired northern breeds and they always had special place in my heart. I always wanted a husky but I was scared because they are not the easiest breed to have. When I was finally ready I did my research and find best possible breeders and future puppy for myself! So, a year ago I reserved my first husky puppy. That was a year of waiting, planning, looking for all important details and informations for this special breed, meeting husky people and their dogs. And finally Conan is here! He is now 3,5 months old and he lives with my 2 years old white swiss shepherd girl Sky and 1 year old maine coon Flynn. They love each other! He is stable, fearless, loves all people and dogs, so far we're doing great with his recall, he comes immediately, he has a very good focus on me, heeling is something he masters. I'm a photographer so he is learning how to wait and pose on different locations and objects...Sky helps him on this one since she's natural Conan & Sky Conan is so far amazing, beautiful, clever pup and I love him! Conan 2 weeks old, my first visit and photography Second visit, 6,5 weeks old First days in new home Conan's first travel to Croatia I'm very proud of Conan and Sky, because I made them both stay on the rock. For Sky this isn't a big deal, she is natural talent, but for a small husky puppy, it's not an easy task. But they both did it ❤️ Conan with Sky and Atila the czechoslovakian wolfdog pic uploader Other And one more of Conan and Sky Conan is now almost a year 😄 We're still doing very well. He has a great recall, we started doing pulling (longboard) in which he's great. He pulls on comand "hike" and stops when I say. I trust him. We've been doing a lot of socialisation He's great with horses, sheep, goats, cats My three Maine Coon Flynn, sib Conan and white swiss shepherd Sky Conan is great off leash and he is a true photo model! More of our days and life
