  1. Hi there, let me introduce you to my 6 year old boy alaskan malamute/husky mix Kyto that we recently adopted from the shelter.Kyto has been abused 3 times by several owners (heavily abused) and neglected, he also lived outside, in all weather, in a very small bench in which he spent more than 8 hours a day locked up! (I think it's terrible). These owners also brought him back three times to the shelter, each time at a different location for different reasons. Now we have Kyto with us for 4 months and we are still very happy with that to date. When we wanted to adopt him, Kyto was not yet available for adoption as investigations had to be made because the caregivers thought he would have a hip problem, Kyto could not stand well and long, moved away and could not run so we had to wait until there more clarity and they would contact us what the result was and they did; Kyto had hip dysplasia. If we had to adopt him, we would take long walks (we are active athletes and walkers), take us on vacation, .. forget everything and just see Kyto as a dog in the house. After visiting Kyto again at the shelter, for the 5th time in the meantime, he really stole our heart from the first time, he was really pathetic in his cage. This time it was different and Kyto was allowed to come to us in the meadow of the shelter, my heart broke, I could not hold back my tears. He walked over to my friend, Dimitri, looked him in the eye, licked him and sat down, then he walked over to me and did the same thing, we knew it: Kyto wanted us as owners and our story began there. The first days we did short walks with him, max. 10 to 15 minutes but we soon noticed that Kyto started crying in the evening because he couldn't stand the pain in his hips anymore. To make a long story short, this took a few days, we helped him, I had made an appointment with the vet about this hip dysplasia, but it turned out .. the day Kyto had to go to the vet there was nothing to be found of his pains and to date there is nothing wrong! Kyto has never walked in his life, always been locked up and abused, I am disgusted! He is so happy now, gets good food, lives inside and gets a lot of love. Follow our stories and daily activities on his instagram @alaskanmalamut_kyto and we will follow back
  2. All pet owners know about heartworm, but what is it exactly? Dirofilaria immitis or heartworm is a type of roundworm that lives in an infected dog’s heart, lungs and surrounding veins. If an infected mosquito bites your pup, it can inject the young heartworm into the dog’s body and cause heartworm infestation. These worms can stay alive inside these organs for many years and reach the size of almost 12 inches. You can’t really protect your pooch from ever getting bitten by a mosquito, but what you can do is protect it from heartworm! Luckily, there are many different pills you can find in stores or online shops that sell various dog supplies and medication. These pills have to be taken monthly or every three to six months and are super easy to administer - some come in the shape of chewables that dogs just love! If you suspect your dog might be infected, don’t do anything yourself, but visit your vet. They will take your pet’s blood sample and check it for heartworm antigens. Your pet might also need to have its x-ray taken, so the vet can check of any heart, artery and lung swelling. In case the worms have entered the heart, an ultrasound can help determine the damage and tell the doctor if your pooch is ready for treatment.
  3. Freya has started to go off her food again, she's done it a few times in the past, but this time instead of changing the wet food we're changing the kibble. The kibble they have isn't the best, my mum gets them a supermarkets own brand one, and I hate it, but they pay for it so I can't exactly complain much... But, I spoke to a reputable breeder we have worked with in the past and she told us to try a high end kibble, she introduced me to a very affordable but good quality kibble brand called Csj... She's sending over some samples of the Csj Champ and Hike On kibble for us to try, to see if Freya likes it before we buy a huge bag, I'm just wondering if she will like it better because it's better quality? Also, what's the best advice for changing her food? Adding a little at a time until she's on it fully?

    Anyone got any tips on socializing excitable dogs for me? I'm going to start taking my Staffie and Husky on walks where there's a lot of people, I'm just gonna sort of walk through, and ignore the distractions (people and dogs) and hope that they copy me in time, and the more I do this they will get used to ignoring dogs and people when out on walks or just in general, like if we have guests so they won't jump all over them and be calm instead... Will this work? :/ Thank you
  5. I know it is a long one and is quite late, but perhaps someone can help.. Looking for a place for holiday with my OH, two kids (3 and 6) and a husky (Cava is happy in a doggy hotel, leaving puppy Lunar is out of the question so she goes with us). NOW, the tricky bits. Destination-UK (preferably South coast) or Europe (preferably Italy, France, Spain, Portugal). No Turkey, no Egypt, no Greece. Time-August or early September MUSTS: sandy beach, swimming pool (both my kids are crazy about water; I am actually looking for some sort of water parks ideally) Rather hotels or B&Bs than caravans or huts And, before all, everything Husky friendly!!! I know, sounds difficult, but if anybody, by chance, been or heard about such a place, please let us know! Thanks:)
