  1. it appears that you've done all of the right things, time to pay the vet a visit...
  2. hi, i have a 10 months old husky pup and he's now fully house broken. i first brought him home when he was 8 weeks old and i immediately began to crate train him, never letting him poop or pee in the house if possible. he's only had 2 peeing accidents early on in the house but no poop accidents. i took him outside on potty breaks every hour per months old. in other words, when he was 2 months old, i took him outside every 2 hours. when he was 3 months old, i took him outside every 3 hours, et cetera. he's now 10 months old but i only need to take him outside about every 4 or 5 hours depending on how much he had consumed during the day. be sure to reward your pup with a treat or two when they do their business outdoors, it reinforces good behavior. i made sure my pup ate at the same time every day, once in the morning and once in the "early" evening but gave him fresh water much more frequently. that way, as he got older i could pretty accurately predict when he needed to go potty. i'm no expert but personally i don't think its a good idea to use pads in the house because you don't want your pup to ever think its okay to poop or pee in the house. when i first brought my pup home and he pee'd in the kitchen twice, i got a bit nervous. but it never happened again as i crate trained him the rest of way. it took about 4 months or so before i could let him roam around my kitchen without having any worries that he'd have an accident. so you've got to be patient, crate train him, keep your pup on the same meal schedule daily, take him outside on a regular basis based on his age, and that's what worked for me. by the way, during the evening hours i limited/minimize the amount of food and water i gave him so that he wouldn't need to take a potty break late at night, that way he sleeps through the night uninterrupted without a problem...
  3. hi, my husky pup is now 10 months old and i've had him since he was 2 months old. when indoors alone, i keep him in a crate. otherwise i only allow him freedom in my kitchen area when he's out of his crate. fortunately, he's already fully house broken after about 3 or 4 months of crate training. occasionally, he does howl at night but not very often. what works best for me is to always take him on a long walk (at least 2 or 3 miles or more) just before it gets dark outside so that when we return home, its just about time for him to sleep overnight. after the long walk, his legs get a little tired and he immediately wants to go to sleep but i keep him awake until about 9pm or so before i let him sleep for the night and normally, he sleeps peacefully all night long. that's what works for my husky. take him walking just before bed time and normally he sleeps thru the entire night...
  4. hello, i'm a new member and i've owned my siberian husky for 8 months, brought him home as a newborn puppy at 8 weeks old. about 4 months ago, my husky had diarrhoea and i wasn't sure what caused it. i figured it could've been caused by potentially by several things but not sure which one. until recently, my husky used to put almost anything in his mouth off the ground to eat when we go walking. he's almost grown completely out of that now, but that could've been one of the causes 4 months ago. also, it could've been some of the treats i gave him. either something was wrong with the quality of the treats or else i just gave him too many. nonetheless, i did some research on the internet on how to treat diarrhoea and believe it or not, the suggestion that worked the best to cure my husky was raw "pumpkin". yes, raw pumpkin did the trick! i sliced it up and put in his bowl and he ate it. a day or two later, he was back to normal and his poop was very solid again. of course i had to "gradually" return him to his normal dry food mixed with a small amount of wet food by mixing the pumpkin in with his normal food but thank goodness it work! so i'd suggest that you do a little research on the internet regarding home treatments for puppy diarrhoea, several recommended treatments including pumpkin, boiled rice, chicken broth, et cetera. pumpkin worked best for my husky, though i also tried a little boiled rice which also helped. but every dog is different, yours may like the pumpkin or some other recommended treatment. good luck!
