  1. My 60lb, 9 month old, Siberian Husky (Mac), will only eat his kibble if there is either water or bone/chicken/beef broth mixed into it and slightly soaked into it. Most of the time he just laps up the liquids and then pushes on the food with his nose to squeeze more liquids out, when he can't get anymore flavorful liquids out of his bowl and/or semi soaked kibble, he starts to whine and push his bowl around looking for more. Sometimes he eats all of his food, probably 1/3 of the time. I've tried adding fresh chicken or beef to it with veggies all chopped up fine, and he just ends up picking those out unless I put a lot of liquids in the bowl and he will chomp down everything sometimes. I just want him to be eating enough food for his age, I rarely give him treats and only feed 2-3 times a day, lots of walks/runs. He will literally wait days until I give him food flooded with broth or water.. Can someone help me? This is frustrating, I know this is the only kibble he will touch because I've tried a lot of them and this one is by far the winner by a long shot. Taste of the Wild, with or without the Ancient Grains. Thanks for the advice or comments.
  2. Hiya! Our 4 year old Husky called Roxanne is being a little pickle. For the last 2 days, she has completely refused to eat her food. She just looks at the bowl, looks up at me and then walks off! She has lost a small amount of weight but is still a healthy weight. The only other times she has ever gone off her food is when she is coming into season. She only just came out of season last month, so surely this can't be the reason? Does anyone have any tips or advice, will be making a Vet's appointment on Thursday if things haven't changed.
  3. ProI have two female huskies that are two years old. They're sisters from the same litter and I feed them Purina Beyond Naturals dry dog food (chicken and rice formula). They are fed 1 3/4 cup of food twice a day. One of them throws up on a regular basis and when I asked the vet about it she said to feed them three times a day. Unfortunately, both myself and husband work during the day so that's not entirely possible to do that. I'm sure I'm not the only husky owner that faces this issue of working and not being able to do something like this, but I need a solution. She has plenty of energy, lots of water, and exercise. Issue number two is that no matter what, both dogs have soft stools. They frequently get diarrhea and we do NOT feed them anything but their dog food. They don't even get dog treats. Their tummies seem to be the most sensitive of any dog I've ever had. They only "treats" they have are benebones, but they've had those since they were little puppies. Does anyone else face this problem? I've been wanting to switch to a higher brand dog food, but they go through it so quickly it can get expensive.
  4. Hello all! So it’s a long story but I need to change my 8 week old pups diet abruptly. Unfortunately I can’t do it gradually like I wanted. I know abrupt change causes diarrhea. What can I do to help minimize the diarrhea? I’ve heard probiotics help but was wondering if there was anything else I can do. Thanks!
  5. I use treats to train Maya, and it costs a fortune to buy dog treats that she isnt even into, I've had a few people say I can use gerber puffs and yogurt melts for babies for her? I just want to make sure I can ACTUALLY use those without her getting any negative affects.
  6. I have a 7 year old male, who i've had for about 4 years. He came from a stressful, lonely living situation and adjust well to living with me and my other dog (he never tears things apart or chews them like he did with his prior owner). However, since I got him, he seems to get tired of dry dog food every couple months. I change it and he is fine for a while. Now, since around Christmas, I struggle to get him to eat every single meal. I've changed his food, Ive put freezedried raw toppings on it, dog gravy, etc. He is excited and eats it right up for a couple of days, then looses interest. Sometimes, he wont even come in the room when i put the food down. Sometimes he will just lay down next to the bowl. He almost always tips the bowl over. When he does eat, he usually doesnt finish the bowl unless i put more topping on it. Ive had it to the vet and there is nothing physically wrong. He gets a good amount of exercise, I play with him a couple times a day and he plays with my other dog everyday too. Ive contacted a trainer, Neither of them have any input on how to resolve this. Any idea would be greatly appreciated. This is very frustrating. Thank you.
  7. I know there's plenty to train on, but my first priority is potty training and not being aggressive about food with my other dog. He goes every time we go outside, but also goes when he feels like it inside. I feed my dogs separate but he growls and charges at the other dog while she's eating when he gets the chance. I want to curb this now cause he will get bigger and I don't want him being food possessive anyway. He does it with the water bowl too. Any tips? No idea if he's full blood, saw both parents last weekend when i got him, they don't looked mixed breed, he'll be 8 weeks old on Saturday, 02/03.
  8. What is better food salmon or lamb. Im debating on change my dogs food? Ive changed it a couple of time since they don't go good with her stomach i ended with salmon grain free and its been good so far. Help should i stay o change??
  9. So I've officially decided to move, I was just wondering if you guys may have any airline or new food suggestions. The only airline I can find with a "Pet Safe" policy is United Airlines (and we've all heard how great they've been lately), so I was wondering if there are any other airlines that do trans-Atlantic routes and have a Pet Safe policy you guys might recommend me looking into? The other thing is her food. I'm currently feeding her Canidae: Pure (a Petco exclusive brand, so only accessible in America). If there are any U.K. dog food brands that are limited ingredients and grain free you'd recommend me switching her to, I'd greatly appreciate it! It's just so stressful trying to get all my ducks in a row for this move 🙈
  10. Hi, I'm getting really worried i have a female husky who is 13 months old and will hardly eat? I think it's down to me spoiling her and giving her to much choice! I have tried the she will eat when she's hungry for 3 days and she literally ate no more than a handful. She loves her veg like carrots and sweet peppers Brussel sprouts etc! But again keeps only when she feels like eating them. (I had a male husky for 10 years and had no problems with him) she's on barking heads biscuits but again will only eat a little. She isn't ill as she will happily eat a dog chews/bones. I think I'm giving her to much choice and she's become spoilt. I try her with chicken, boiled mince,lambs liver etc and she will eat tiny bits of them she now hates wet dog food! As i said she will happily eat dog chews/bones and is healthy. Sometimes i hear her wake up about 4am and eat all her food in the bowl but then that's very rare she does that. I heard that huskies will only eat as much as they burn off the calories which i don't know if it's true as my last husky i had no eating problems with. Sorry for the long message I'm just getting worried. She's not really thin but she's slim and needs to put some weight on. Thank you for reading this.
  11. Hey Guyz i will switch my 10 week old puppies dry food and was wondering if TOTW High prairie puppy or Orijien puppy is a better choice for her at this stage. i read some people say Orijen has high protein which some say its good for growth spurt and other say its not. while TOTW has lower protein. Also read about the calcium phosphorus rate which is higher in orijen and its not good for kidneys. Another choice i have to get both and mix 50:50 ? whats the best thing for her to get all her nutrient needs?And how many times and cups per day should i feed her? Thank you
  12. I bought Freya (and the others) a 15kg bag of Vitalin Muesli and she won't touch it... Will she be more interested if I mixed water in or some tuna to make it wetter? Or even with some tinned wet food? This husky is so stubborn and fussy, been through so many food brands/types, if she doesn't want to eat it she will literally starve herself and get really skinny so I need her to eat this
  13. Hello everyone! I will be bringing my husky pup Luna home in a few weeks, when she is 8 weeks old. I'm not a first time dog owner, but this will be my first Siberian. I do have a question, about food for Luna. The breeder currently has the pups on Acana Pacifica. It says on the bag that it's good for all life stages, but I'm wondering if it's good to keep the pup on. I know Acana does sell a puppy stage food as well, so I'm not sure if I should stick with the Pacifica or mix it with some of Acanas puppy brand also. Any ideas? Here is a picture of Luna at 4 weeks.
  14. 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?
  15. Here is a video that shows a technique for teaching food manners: http://www.dogstardaily.com/blogs/chirag-patel/teaching-food-manners What do you think of this approach? I've done something similar and its worked well for me. Thoughts?
  16. HELLO!! I picked up my 9 month husky from the shelter on Sunday. For the first 2 days she ate fine but then all of a sudden she started doing this wired thing with her food bowl where she pushes in around or tries to pick it up. She flattens the food with her noes and only eats a tiny bit then leaves it. I leave the bowl there for up to 30 minutes where she will return to it and repeat the routine of looking at it, going to another position and looking at it, pushing it and flattening the food only taking the smallest nibble. I'm supposed to feed her 3 times a day as she is underweight and young but I have wasted so much food. Ghost has never really eaten treats as I cant find any she likes. She likes wafer thin chicken but it doesn't seem to agree with her as she chokes on it. We have brought the same food as they used in the shelter and I'm trying not to pander up to her as I think she's being fussy as whenever one of the family eats she pesters us for our food. I have told the kids and hubby not to give her any until she eats her own food. The food we use is natures diet and a dry food James Wellbeloved. If I do decide to swap food- what ones do you suggest? I notice that she has quite a sensitive tummy. Do you think this will pass? Should I be concerned? LOL *Strange Trait not straight!, sorry
  17. I don't have the papers to back up he's purebred, but most vets that I've seen have told me that he is a purebred husky. His age has always been in question also and we've assumed that he was about one year old when we received. So, given that logic he is about 1 1/2 years old. The past seven months, which is how long I've had him, he's always been 41 to 44 pounds on average. he has ben neutered but is this low weIght this normal? Could he have been a runt? We do feed him about 1-2 cups of TOTW but his weight stays the same. The vet doesn't seemed to be concerned and he is negative on all worms. What are your thoughts or I'm I just worrying over nothing. He weighs about 43lbs right now.
  18. Hey everyone, I am asking for your help to learn what bones are appropriate for my 16 week old husky pup. I bought him some American Beefhide Knotted Bones. Are these appropriate? I have heard that giving them rawhides isn't the best of ideas. Any suggestions??? Should I continue to give him the ones that I purchased for him? Thank you for your time and help. Shawn
