  1. Hi everyone! My family has owned huskies and malamutes since I was born. I discovered this group because I’m now raising a female husky I adopted about 8 months ago. Prior to this, the huskies we have had were all from the same breeder who has since retired. Living downtown creates a bit of a tricky situation because at my parents, we can let her run around the backyard. Now, that’s totally dependant on walks, which I’ve enjoyed! Yesterday, however, I was bringing Aspen inside when I saw ticks on the top of her fur. Then my dad found one nearly between her eyes; later we took her collar off to find a few big ones underneath. Now I’m pretty sure where she got them and we’ll have to avoid the nature areas. I’m afraid because she didn’t feel well the last few days so we’ve kept the walks simple, but right now her appetite is back, she looks better and seems okay, however I’m giving her a few sick days just to make sure she rests and so we can figure out a new route for our walks. With her coat being so thick, I’m not even sure we got all the ticks; it seems impossible! I feel like I went through everything and especially under the collar, tummy, etc. Because most of our dogs have just exercised in the backyard, I’ve never dealt with ticks. What else should I know? Are they like bedbugs where everything has to be cleaned and everything? I’m glad I found this group and look forward to talking to everyone more!
  2. Hi All. I live in an urban suburb in Durban SA. My duo, Duke and Kaskae are 1year olds - Kaskae is the female and she’s a wooly. We have been trying to keep them active by walking them daily for 3-4km, both at mornings and at noons. Duke and Kaskae also enjoyed the privilege of spending some time outdoors in our garden everyday, however due to a lack of stimulation, they were starting to dig up our greenery. We are first time husky owners and with very little research done a year ago before getting our pups, we were suddenly faced with a predicated of under exercising both of them. So... One day sitting on my porch, an idea dawned on me to rig up a leash onto my mountain bike and to run my dogs one at a time. I’ve started off with Kaskae since she is much more drawn to me than Duke and she understands commands better than he does lol. Eventually, after a few trial runs, I gave both of them a shot at running together. Here’s a cool video of them taking me around the block, running at full speed. I also take them through a soccer field to give them that extra bit of sensation on their feet. Thought I’d share. This is truly one of the most amazing experiences ever. I’ve later found out that it’s called bikejoring or mushing lol. I run Duke and Kaskae 2-3 times weekly and it has made such a positive impact on their behavior plus they sleep so much nowadays FullSizeRender.mov
  3. 🛑Help🛑 I know I already posted something on this but I just went to the vet to weight him. so my dog is 23/24 inches to the shoulders and he weights a whopping 74 pounds he doesn’t look that fat but I’m not sure. Would it be fine to give him a cup less food? 1/2 less in the morning and 1/2 less at night?
  4. I have found going to the dog park and taking her swimming to be good ways of getting her energy out. But I'm only 16 and cant drive so i only get the opportunity to take her places once or twice a week, and thats not enough for her, she needs to get her energy out every day. The heat has been in the 80's and 90's and the streets are way to hot to walk her on, I don't know what else to do the get this energy out, she acts terrible when she cant go out and starts stealing things and barking and whining. what can I do to get her to calm down?
  5. We adopted our adorable but super overweight, 7-year-old Mayo 3.5 months ago. She was at a staggering 35 kg (77 lb) at the time, and we were told that wasn't even her heaviest -- the adoption agency saw a 42.8 kg (94 lb) in an old vet record! We put her on a sensible diet (grain-free; treats are rationed and zero table scraps) after and walked her daily. She was eating less but her energy level went up; her weight steadily dropped. Even people at the dog park were commenting on her obvious weight loss. We went back to the vet last week and the vet thinks she's finally reached her healthy size, at 28 kg (61.6 lb)! She'll always have the loose skin around her neck and chest area from being so fat for so long, but we're very proud of what we've all achieved. This was Mayo at 35 kg (77 lb) on her first day home 3.5 months ago: This is Mayo at ~28 kg (61.6 lb) today, at the beach! Here's to a happy and long life, healthy-weight Mayo!
  6. Hello:) My puppies Buddy and Sulley just came home with me last weekend. They are absolutely energetic and wanting to play all the time. However I have to work 8 hours during the day, and I lock them in a 5’x7’ kennel(about 1.5x2m) and place water, food and some chew toy, and of course, puppy pad in there. And I also hired a dog sitter to check on them during the noon. However, its really not enough for them, every time i come home they tore the puppy pad and make a huge mess. I really wanna take them outside but they still need to finish their vaccinations. How do you guys exercise or socialize your Siberian when he/she was a puppy? Thank you very much, and here are some photos:)
  7. Today I bought my longboard and got to film my husky pull me for the first time. It is super fun. And he gets a good exercise out of it. Definitely will be doing more of that! Except for the part where I almost fell off because of how fast I was going. Pulls super hard, strong dog. Haha Picture was obviously moving but it goes to show how fast I was moving!
