Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Your question is rather vague.  What exactly are you looking to supplement and why? The answer to that can help us with recommendations. 

Have you read the following thread?
Supplements for your huskies

Not all fish oils are created equal. For skin and coat health, I use coconut oil instead of fish oil (I think coconut oil offers much more benefit than fish oil) so I don't really have suggestions other than to find one that is mercury free.

I like using the general supplements Wholistic Canine Complete or Nupro mixed in with their food. I use the regular formula when they're younger and I generally switch over to the version with joint support when they're a little older. I start the joint support version at the age of 5 for preventative maintenance, but it's really a personal decision when you choose to add a joint support supplement if there's no condition that necessitates it.

Do you know of any reason to not use joint supplements at a younger age? I'm thinking of putting at least my male on one he seems to be a bit stiff and a bit sore at times. He can play run walk fine but I figured it couldnt hurt. I am not sure how old they are yet the vet we saw for shots just said their young so right now we are guessing around a year until i can get them into a wellness check

It won't hurt to do it, just try nupro. You can get the lower dose formula and give that as maintenance Smile it's much easier and cheaper to prevent a joint issue than to treat it

I have had Kale on Dasuquin (glucosamine) since he was a year and a half solely because of his shoulder issue. I use Grizzly salmon oil for my two; just squirt it right in there food. That and Vitamin E are very good for skin and coat.
