  1. Hello, Our one year old Siberian Husky has been losing tail over of the last 3 months. One morning we noticed chunks of hair gone so we figured he bit it out. He had a beautiful fluffy tail and it hasn't grown back. We went to a dermatologist and she believes its Alopecia X (also known as Coat Funk and Black Skin Disease) because there are no signs of guard hairs growing back. Wer'e also noticing some chunks on the back right leg now. Quick notes and facts Flea and ringworm test negative Food allergy test negative (although I hear rumor tests are not effective before first year of life) Thyroid tests normal, haven't checked for Cushing since no symptoms and too young Doesn't seem itchy and we don't catch him biting (put camera on him at night) He does lick his paws a decent amount, but not all the time Got him neutered 3 weeks ago (sometimes reverses Alopecia X) Dermatologist prescribed Melatonin for Alopecia X (incase it is that) for 3 month No skin biopsy yet , waiting until 3 months of melatonin is up We do provide zinc, ocean kelp, and omega oils with his meals Food was Orijin Puppy and moved to Acana Chicken and Rice (Vet wanted him on grains) Never really blew his coat this year in the first year of life. I brush him every day now. Pictures attached (plus one of his cute face to get ya motivated haha). I understand it could be Alopecia, but I also know there are different types of Alopecia. Environmental allergies? Should we try a different food? Try shampoo or bathing more? Any thoughts would be helpful and would love to hear of any similar experiences with a young Siberian Husky. Appreciate your time.
  2. Hey there! I'm interested in adopting a Siberian Husky puppy, and since I've never owned one before, I was hoping to get some advice when it comes to breeders. I have been searching for quite a while to find the perfect puppy, and I thought that I had, but later I was idly searching for husky pictures and came across a forum on this website, in which another user had in a similar situation to mine requested advice and discovered that his dream puppy may actually be riddled with health issues, and with your guys' help he decided on a much safer puppy. I'm hoping to have the same wonderful advice, so here he is! The breeder is Breeders name removed, and from what I could tell, they seemed very legitimate, with AKC certified parents and Champion Bloodlines, and the puppies looked healthy to me, but again, I am new to the world of huskies and am likely overlooking obvious health issues. I attached first the 3 photos of the puppy, an 8 week old male, and following those are the photos of Jax, the father, and Kita, the mother. Following those are the health guarantees they offer. I called them as well, and they seem genuinely interested in finding safe and suitable homes for their huskies, and were happy to help me. What do you guys think-is he a safe bet? Are there any questions I could ask the breeder to clarify anything in regards to his health? Thanks in advance!!
  3. Hello! My name is Amber and I just recently got my first husky Levushka. I have had Chow Chows in the past and decided on a husky because I will be moving out of my parent's house soon and wished to take a companion. However, I'm a bit worried about her at times. I'm taking an internship with a dog trainer to get her trained as a service dog, but, due to school and sports, I don't know if I got her at the wrong time. I have about two more months until school ends and my trainer insists that when I'm not home she should be kenneled. With college I understand this, however, with high school, I HAVE to be gone for 8 hours (plus two hours for track!) even on the days I don't have class (the majority of my schedule is college courses). Every day I try to play with her as much as possible yet yesterday she started acting up. Is this because I'm not home enough? Or is this just because she's becoming a little more independent now that she is comfortable in the house? I was hoping that she would use this time to sleep as puppies need a lot of sleep, and my parents are there to take her potty and make sure she has water (I only feed her at 6 am before school and 6 pm when I eat dinner) but... I don't know. She continuously cries in her kennel while I'm gone (she's good as long as I am in the room) and when she plays she bites. Hard. Should I do something to make her more independent? Am I not exercising her enough? How can I keep her from biting so hard? I'm afraid my younger siblings will try to play with her and get hurt.
  4. Hello, I have a 9 month old siberian husky who has been very possessive and aggressive towards me for a few months. She will grab my socks, cloths, hair clips and won't let go of them and if i try she will snarl and snap at me. If i do take it back, she will jump on me and bite me and won't let go until she gets it back. At first, i used to do a treat trade where i will give her a treat if she drops it, but that has stopped working. I don't know what to do to get her to stop being so aggressive and possessive. Please help me, tell me some tips or tricks or advice on how to train her properly. Thank you!! side note: ill insert a picture of what she did to me this morning trying to get my hair clip back (this is not the worse of it, she has drawn blood on me before sadly). I've also gotten scars on my hands because of her bites. It makes me very sad because i love her so much and she is a sweet dog i just don't know how to get her to stop being so aggressive.
  5. Hi, I'm Odin (24 years old french men) and my siberian husky is Olaf, 8 years tomorrow ^^. I always dreamed about having a dog, specially a siberian husky because I found them really beautiful, and majestic. So when I was 16 I had my first siberian husky, Olaf (his registered name was Eros), who was just a 7 week old puppy. And before that of course; I searched a lot about the siberian husky breed : their behaviour and needs etc. I knew siberian husky were what I needed. And I also knew for the moment I've chosen to take him with me that I will be responsible for my dog's life. This means I knew my dog will have to pass before all the rest : school, jobs, time with friends. And it's the most important point for all husky owners in my opinion : you are responsible for the quality of your dog's life : they are all adorable and they are just always happy ! You'll need to keep this, and try to discover new places with your fur friends, and always give them love and carresses. And they will give 100x love in return ! You keep having friends etc, but you can see them with your husky friend, it's more fun. Don't let your dog alone and sad. Play with him, walk, run, bike, and you'll see you and your dog will become ONE. And I think it's amazing. So I spent my first 3 years being a student and discovering every day new facets of my adorable Olaf, when I think about that time I'm just "damn, time goes fast". I remember taking him on vacations etc, going to the park every day. It was great. But then I realized my dog was really my best friend and we both needed to go more and more in Nature, I was literally always with my dog. I moved for my 3rd university year in Montreal ... and of course I took Olaf with me ! It was awesome, winter is 5 months there so we did lots of skijoering, biking in snow, running etc. And Olaf had lots of husky friends in the dog park =) . I went back to France for one year in Marseille (south of france) with Olaf, and we also went to Norway for 1 and a half month together in the 2014's summer, taking train, bus and planes all accross Norway. It was sometimes hard, but amazing. We were just walking south to North country ! I've planned to stay there in northern norway but it was not financiary possible ^^. ... and then I returned to Montreal for a 2 years work permit (2015-2017). Olaf has found again all his friends and it was also great for me to work in Montreal (more opportunities). But I was alone with my dog in a little appartment, so I was going out 3 hours per day EVERYDAY because it was the minimum for him to be happy ! He doesn't make noise, he is so adorable so it was not a problem but still, he needed his walks !! So I went back (again) to france with Olaf this year. Now I really want to start a bigger project with my dog. I want to do backpacking trip with him. Just by walking. I've been doing some researches and I've planned to go from south of France to north sweden with him by foot, passing by north Italy, Switzerland, Germany/Danmark and then all the Swedish country. There are lots of difficulties with a project like this. Most of them are because I will be on foot, and because of the dog. I've checked for the first part of the trip were are approximatively little markets who sell croquettes etc. But the most important thing is : material. I need lots of things to do this trip : GPS, good winter (4 season tents), snow shoes, etc and all that with the weight constraint. I also started doing photography, but not in a amateur way, but professionnal way. I bought some material and I still need to buy a few things (an other lenses, some filters) and I need to buy a Mac & PS& Lighroom. So my project is the same, but photography will help me telling, describing my adventure with Olaf and my goal is to be able to sell some prints of Olaf pictures in landscape. If you want to check some of my work, you can see it on my instagram : www.instagram.com/olafofwatsonlake . There are lots of landscape photographer out there, but dogs photographers (in Nature) are not so many (of course dogs and animals are everywhere on instagram and blogs etc, but real landscape photo with dogs, not so much) so I think there is a possibility for me, I mean we all have dreams and I think it's important to try to realize them even if sometimes it seems impossible and unrealistic. I will be glad to hear some similar projects with your siberian husky whether it's in France, in the US, or any other country in the world ! =) Olaf & Odin _DSC0564.ARW _DSC0581.ARW
  6. My husky Blaze turned 17 months earlier this month and it turns out only one of his testicles have come out. His trainer always told me to keep working him out and eventually it will come out. I was really worried and I brought this to my vet's notice. He said that his other testicle is still up and is inactive and it's necessary that we run him through a laparoscopy surgery and remove the other testicle as by the age of 6 or 7 this inactive testicle could become cancerous. He said this is a common something in the Husky breed and if we do mate him in the future there's 50% chance that the puppies would have a similar problem growing up. Has anyone been through something similar if so what needs to be done?

  8. After 3 1/2 years of proper house training, our younger Siberian has started to leave presents for us. It started on a carpet in the office, which is located toward the back of the house, one of the exits she would normally use to go outside. We got rid of the carpet all together. She will now leave poops for us in the office on the hard wood floor. We have changed nothing of late (that I can think of anyway). Lately this has been happening just about any time we leave for 4-5 hours, or sometimes even at night! (Previously the dogs would stay home for 6-7 hours at times, with never a problem. Could this be a health issue? Or could something have spurred her to suddenly start doing this? Would appreciate any advice from people who have dealt with something like this before!

  12. Here are some random pictures of my little man from today! I feel like a new mom taking a bunch of obnoxious pictures of her newborn! hahah... but I am so so so happy my hubby and I chose to add a Husky to the family! He is such an awesome pup! And crate training (aside from some unnecessary howling/crying) went well today! As did house training!

  14. So I have a year old male Siberian Husky that i had bought off of some one from Craigslist. I plan on having him DNA tested/registered to see if he is a pure breed (im 100% sure he is), I want to have him registered for a Stud dog but I have no history of his bloodline and I dont know if any of his ancestors were ever registered. I looked at the AKC site and read everything but im still lost. Does he have to have a family member registered inorder to be registered and licensed for stud? what steps do i take to get him on the path to be registered as a stud?
